First Class Seats and First Class Villas: The Luxurious L’Ilot is Worth Making the Daylong Flight to Mauritius
In our previous blog, we detailed the delights of the semi-private beach resort The Brando. Today, we take you across the Indian Ocean to spectacular Mauritius where the private island L’Ilot offers all the luxuries you desire. The flight to Mauritius from the U.S. mainland takes a full day so this is a time when you definitely need to make the trip in the comfort of first class or business class seats.
Although L’Ilot is just 15 miles from the capital city of Port Louis, its location in the middle of a scenic lagoon off the Indian Ocean highlights its remote, secluded location. Only a wood and rock causeway connects the tiny rock island to the main island area of Roche Noires.
The villa is contemporary in architecture but sumptuous in atmosphere. Walk down the steps in front of the villa to take a dip in the natural bathing pool. Cross the eastern jetty to enjoy a few hours of diving and exploring the open ocean. For a special treat, wait for low tide when the shallow sand banks are revealed.
While you may just enjoy a few days of uninterrupted meditation and relaxation at the villa, there are plenty of thrilling adventures and fun activities nearby.
After all, you need to make the most of your day-long first class flight to Mauritius. The chic shops and restaurants of Grand Bay’s “Northern Riviera” offer opportunities to socialize, and the renowned golf courses of The Legends and The Links are just 20 minutes away.
Back at the villa, two beautiful suites and two bedrooms envelop you in luxury. With a wide array of pillows and Egyptian cotton and linen bedding, even slumber is a holiday here. Both suites enjoy private verandas, and all bedrooms and living spaces boast panoramic views of the Indian Ocean. For meals, guests can either savor the gastronomic delights of an on-site chef or allow staff to deliver meals to the villa.
Condé Nast Traveller named L’Ilot one of the world’s best private islands, and it easily lives up to that acclaim. Mauritius itself frequently earns accolades and was named the World’s Leading Island Destination and the World’s Best Beaches at the World Travel Awards.
