About us

We have created this blog to house posts on our knowledge, thoughts and observations of the luxury lifestyles and diverse cultures of Mauritius, Seychelles. Madagascar, Zanzibar, Maldives and Sri Lanka.

The story of our love for Indian Ocean luxury started 19 years ago when Hans and I opened Elegant Destinations and Villas De Maitre  offering the first internet surfers the opportunity to book beach bungalows and luxury private villas in Mauritius. We have spent many years personally selecting the villas and developing close relationships with luxury providers in the Indian Ocean.

We wanted our clients to enjoy the authentic feel of Mauritius beach living we had experienced whilst living there with our young family. The luxury on offer in the Indian Ocean is so varied and often unknown so we felt we could share these discoveries and feelings of luxury that we hold dear through our blog.

There is so much to experience and so much to share…
