When you want a charming stay with that home-away-from-home feel, these spots deliver.

The Travellers’ Choice Awards Best of the Best title celebrates the highest level of excellence in travel.

Out of our 8 million listings, fewer than 1% achieve this milestone.


Take things slow at Voile Bleue, a tranquil beachside hotel along the northwestern coast of Mauritius. From stunning ocean vistas to well-kept gardens, you'll discover plenty of places to relax. Dip into a saltwater infinity pool overlooking the ocean, or snorkel and dive at the beach if you prefer. Just don't miss out on the authentic Mauritian cuisine served up at their on-site restaurant—it's budget friendly too.

    Our stay at Voile Bleue was great. Room was big and clean. Having a small kitchen (but we'll equiped) was also a plus. The pool was great and clean, with a stunning view to the sea. Staff was helpful, friendly and very polite. The only downside is the beach, which is rocky and you literally cannot swim, but this is nature 😗 Walk only 50 meters and you have a sandy ocean where you can swim without any rocks. I recommend the hotel, good job!

    The studio-apartment with sea view was perfect for two. The swimming pool and the restaurant facing sea was amazing as well as the staff: Yanish was always available for any need and also helped us booking tours around the island through the hotel. We had a very nice stay.

    We have just enjoyed an incredible 9 night stay here and the three of us have loved every minute! Lovely little pool but we rarely used it, instead bobbing about in the warm and calm ocean outside the property (worth walking a minute or two down the beach to the patch of sea with no rocks). The rooms were clean and comfortable and the air conditioning was modern and quiet to keep us cool at night. Honestly some of the friendliest staff I’ve ever come across. Went out of their way to help us especially as we had my elderly father who isn’t very mobile with us. I normally go out to different restaurants every night on holiday but the food here at the on site “Le Skipper” restaurant was superb, we ate here every evening and each meal was delicious! The view over the ocean was a treat too, especially to watch the sun set over the horizon. I rarely visit the same place twice but I’m seriously considering coming here again next year!

    Had a fabulous stay at this little boutique hotel. Upon arrival we were welcomed by Yanish who has the warmest of smiles, he gave us a small tour around the hotel then gave us a welcome drink, great guy who goes out of his way to ensure all your needs are met. Our room was spotlessly clean, well maintained with a great partial view of the sea (Deluxe studio) , everything was superb. We booked a half board package, the first night we ate off the inclusive menu, the food was nice, on our second night we paid the additional charge to have the seafood plater, it was just amazing!! Definitely worth paying the extra, thank you Sharma for organising this and thank Keseven for looking after our breakfast and dinner service, all the staff we encountered during our stay were great, they are an asset to the hotel. Having visited a lot of hotels In Mauritius (I am a resident of Mauritius) I can honestly say this little hotel stands out.. thank you so much for our wonderful stay, we will be back :-)

    We came as a couple and really had a wonderful time. The entire hotel is rather small and very familiar. Perfect for relaxing. Our room was very clean and very spacious. From the terrace, which invites you to relax, you have a wonderful view of the pool and the sea behind it. The pool area is also very well maintained and invites you to relax with its Caribbean flair. You will receive a very warm welcome at both breakfast and dinner. The food is highly recommended and the service is really excellent. Overall we had a very good time and felt very welcome. We would especially like to thank Justine for the warm welcome. Our biggest thanks go to Yanish. He gave us very good tips for exploring the island, as well as great recommendations for restaurants. We always had great conversations with him and laughed a lot together. Truly a great person. We really enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back. Very clear recommendation :) Sarah & Mirco
