Excursions

  • Stone Town

    Follow the trail of the sultans, slaves and explorers in the winding streets of Stone Town. Revisit the history of Zanzibar in this treasure trove town and learn about the events that shaped Zanzibar. This walking tour provides you with a window into modern life in Stone Town. This tour is very flexible and can be adapted to suit your interest and time.

  • Sultan Panorama

    The Sultan Panorama Tour is ideal for visitors with little time wishing to experience a bit of everything Zanzibar has to offer. A full day excursion, starting in Stone Town, with visits to the old slave market, Darajani market, a spice farm and a local village. Cooking, weaving, building houses and playing with the children,
    you’ll have chance to see what life is like for Zanzibar citizens.
    An informative and action packed day, this tour gives a taste of everything found in all other Zanzibar excursions and is strongly recommended as a first excursion.

  • Prison Island

    Prison Island gets its name from the prison built to condemn Zanzibar citizens to the isolation of the island. Previously owned by an Arab to house his rebellious slaves, the prison was never used, and the island is now home to a tortoise sanctuary, prison ruins and hotel. Prison Island is 20 minutes from Stone Town by boat and is surrounded by a spectacular coral reef. For the more active, there is a hiking trail.

  • Spice Tour

    In days past, Zanzibar was known as a spice island, exporting cloves, vanilla, nutmeg and cardamom across the world.
    The spices were brought over from Asia and South America and flourished in the tropical Zanzibar climate. Today the
    plantations are a tribute to the island’s past – walk through the spice farm with your guide whilst you touch, smell and taste different spices and tropical fruits. A visit to a spice farm village gives you an insight into local life and the opportunity to try some Swahili dishes.

  • Jozani Forest

    In the south of the island, Jozani Forest is a wonder and delight, with tales of Zanzibar leopards, medicinal cures and beautiful scenery. The forest is home to a number of endemic species, including the Zanzibar Red Colobus Monkey. Your guide will take you on a nature trail, lined with eucalyptus and mahogany trees and explain the medicinal properties of various plants. Learn about the various animal species, birds and reptiles that make their home
    in the various habitats of this tropical rainforest. The mangrove boardwalk takes you above the swamp, where, depending on the tide, you can see tropical fish flitting between the mangrove roots and crabs scuttling across.

  • Sunset Dolphin Dhow Cruises

    The Original Dhow Safaris operates the spectacular Sunset Dolphin Cruise in one of Zanzibar’s truly unique dhows, used for centuries to navigate the coast of Africa. Experience one of the most romantic sights in the world as pods of dolphins glide through the water. Enjoy traditional canapés with a glass or wine or beer during the two hour dhow cruise.

  • Sand Bank Picnic

    Set sail towards Prison Island. Watch giant tortoises shuffle through the trees, discover the amazing underwater sea life before heading off to the sand bank, a seemingly uninhabited and quiet bank in the ocean which suddenly comes to life with millions of birds flying overhead and ghost crabs scurrying across the golden sands. After lunch relax on the sandbank listening to the hush of waves lapping against the shore. For the more active visitor, discover more of the breathtaking underwater life around the sandbank, before slowly sailing back to Stone Town.

Hotel Info

A luxury five star deluxe hotel in Mauritius, shining with the vibrant energy and hospitality of authentic island life.  Proudly situated in the quaint seaside village of Belle Mare on the east coast of Mauritius, against a backdrop of the Indian Ocean LUX* Belle Mare Resort & Villas welcome you with a different approach to island life.

Enjoy the view of pristine white beaches and a sparkling lagoon from your traditionally thatched villa or suite at this exceptional hotel in Mauritius.  Re-designed by international designer Kelly Hoppen, the resort is a modern take on traditional Mauritian hospitality, with a discreet yet vibrant LUX* touch.

A statement swimming pool, one of the islands largest, 2000 m2 with a separate area for children, is at the heart of this 5-star resort as you wander past various tantalising restaurants.  Take a dip or be tempted by a fresh home-made ice cream.

The spa is a knockout too with highly qualified therapists who want you to leave feeling your best whether through treatments, yoga or Tai Chi.  And we haven’t even mentioned that the coastline feels as though you have it yourselves:  crystal-clear water, with a turquoise glint and sand as soft and white as you’ll ever know.

ACCOMMODATION
What’s better than staying somewhere that was conceived with the sole purpose of giving you a good night’s sleep and relaxation? Nothing, we think, is better than our beautifully-designed rooms and suites. Ingeniously designed to be meditative and escapist, they owe their fresh, breezy design to the crisp linens, the woven rugs, the white shutters, the stunning wallpaper, the standalone matte white bathtubs and tropical showers, and the sundeck, that in-between space between the beach and your bedroom.
