Ile Des Deux Cocos

Whoever said life is about the journey, not the destination, probably didn't own a private tropical island retreat. Between the unobstructed views, a picturesque villa and the team of dedicated staff, you can pretty much live out your ultimate castaway fantasy on Île des Deux Cocos.

This beautiful jewelled pendant in a turquoise ocean lies just off the south east coast of Mauritius. Reserve this island resort in Mauritius for an overnight stay, visit for day trips, or host your own exclusive party or special event, including weddings and anniversaries.

To the south of this island resort in Mauritius, the dramatic ocean is an ever-changing spectacle of waves pounding against the coral reef. In contrast, to the north, tranquil, sandy white beaches border Blue Bay Marine Reserve, one of the most stunning spots for snorkelling in all of Mauritius.

The Villa, built in the 1920s by the British Governor of Mauritius, Sir Hesketh Bell, has been completely restored to its original glory. Highlights include a shaded Moroccan-style courtyard, a fragrant garden laden with bougainvillea, swimming pool and of course, your very own private speedboat.

Here a gentle sea breeze caresses, the ocean shines blue, and the only traffic is the procession of fish between coral. Welcome to a little piece of paradise afloat in the Indian Ocean.

Why Ile Des Deux Cocos
