If you’re seeking a truly luxurious, relaxing and authentic golf and wellness experience to help unwind from the stresses of your busy everyday schedule, look no further than the award-winning Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa on the spectacular west coast of Mauritius at Wolmar. A true Mahlatini favorite for a luxury Mauritius destination. The resort has special direct access to the 18-hole Tamarina golf course, now just a five minute car transfer away.
Relaxation and rejuvenation are a key aspect of a stay at Maradiva and there’s no better way than by immersing yourself in the Indian & Asian philosophies of wellness or enjoying several rounds of golf on a spectacular course; or even better, a combination of the two!
Golf in spectacular surroundings
A round or two of golf may be your perfect choice for recuperation and the resort has special new access to the Tamarina Golf Estate, now just a 5-minute transfer by car direct from the hotel. This 18-hole, par 72 course opened in 2006 and has a slight African feel with much thorny bush as it’s on the driest part of the island. It is the longest course on Mauritius; a couple of the Mahlatini team have played the course and in our opinion it’s a great test of golf, particularly from the black tees, but fair and enjoyable at all times.
Guests staying a minimum of 5 nights in either Beachfront or Exclusive Suite Pool Villas, as well as the Presidential Suite Pool Villa, benefit from complimentary green fees and transfers (two per 5-night stay) plus a free picnic basket. And, exclusive to Mahlatini for 2019, guests staying 7 nights in a Luxury Suite Pool Villa, also receive two free green fees. Valid all year, this offer is subject to availability of tee times.
Wellness is everything
The tranquil garden setting of the Maradiva Spa is the perfect calming place for traditional Ayurveda treatments in addition to exclusive Signature therapies, ad-hoc spa treatments, yoga and meditation. Authentic Ayurveda therapies take a holistic approach to balancing mind and body; after a personal consultation with the resident Ayurvedic doctor from Kerala in India, you’ll have his personal recommendations for tailored therapies – from deep muscular massages to aromatherapy sessions, fitness and healthy cuisine.
Highlights of Ayurveda and pampering signature treatments include:
- Pichu & Shirodhara – for relieving stress and stiffness
- Udvartana & Abhyanga – detoxing massages
- Kati Vasti – for backaches
- Mukhlepa – herbal facials
- Abhyanga – herbal oil body massage
- Ananda – powerful oil massages
- Pada Abhyangam – foot massages
- Champi – Indian head massages
Aromatherapy and relaxing oil massages as well as hot stone therapies are both available as part of the regular spa treatments. The choice of wellness packages on offer will not disappoint; these include two couples’ treatments as well as a Kids spa package that includes a chocolate wrap! The facilities of the spa include sauna, hammam, chilled pool, Jacuzzi, 6 treatment rooms and a yoga & meditation pavilion.
Boutique resort expertise
The boutique, privately-owned 5* Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa sits beside a white sand beach and sparkling lagoon close to the picturesque Tamarin Bay. The main infinity pool has a superb beachside setting and friendly service is assured throughout the resort. Accommodation is in superbly-appointed villas dotted through the lovely tropical gardens, home to some 150 endemic species. Whatever your choice of villa, you’ll have the luxury of your own private pool; we particularly like the stunning Beachfront Luxury Suite Pool Villas with their direct beach access.
Discovering unique Mauritius island vibes
Of course, in addition to the sensational spa and golf, as part of your stay at Maradiva, you also have access to a host of other activities – both within the resort and nearby – to help create a unique and memorable Mauritian experience. Highlights include the chance to swim with dolphins in Tamarin Bay, a breathtaking adventure on the water with a ‘seakart experience’, or a visit to Casela Nature Park for wildlife treks as well as the longest zip line in the Indian Ocean. The hotel is also perfectly located for exploring the quieter south and south-west coast of Mauritius, discovering its fascinating nature and wildlife including the Black River Gorges National Park and the Coloured Earths near Chamarel.
Drawing on its Indian heritage, a stay at Maradiva is all about the idyllic setting, fine cuisine (a diversified choice with the dine-around concept), superb choice of activities including golf and holistic Spa, as well as impeccable service and legendary Mauritian hospitality. Putting all this together helps create the magic of this fine resort… and a unique Mauritius holiday experience.
