Good news for anyone looking to travel to an absolute paradise on earth. Starting next month, the Government of Mauritius will start allowing tourists in the country although with some very strict rules, that it plans to loosen up next Autumn!
According to the Mauritius Official Travel Website, the re-opening will be done in two phases:
In this period, only vaccinated travellers will be permitted to board a plane to the country, except if they are Mauritian Nationals. With the proof of vaccination you’ll also need to present a negative PCR test before prior to boarding at their last point of embarkation. Needless to say you’ll need to have a valid air ticket. The last pre-boarding document you’ll have to present is a “proof of purchase of a stay package in one of certified COVID-19 safe resorts”.
After arrival, vaccinated guests will be able to enjoy and access all hotel facilities except the spa. The’ll also need to “undergo a PCR test on on arrival day and on days 7 and 14”. After a negative test on day 14, visitors will be finally able to explore the island freely.
A list of approved hotels will be available at www.mauritiusnow.com from 20 June 2021 for bookings.
Starting from October 1st, the Mauritian authorities plan to loosen the restrictions quite a bit.
Vaccinated guests, will just need to present a negative PCR test taken within 72h of departure.
Unvaccinated travellers on the other hand will have to “book a 14-day quarantine including meals and transfers in an officially designated hotel”, where they’ll be required to stay in the room for 14 days, in which meals will be delivered at the door. They’ll also need to undergo a PCR test on days 7 and 14, and if both are negative, they’ll be (finally) free to roam the island.
As the name indicates, 4* Solana Beach features a beachfront location in Belle Mare, as well as an outdoor pool, fitness centre, restaurant and spa. All rooms are equipped with air conditioning, flat-screen TV, private balcony and ensuite bathroom.
