Our verdict:

I think Mauritius is one of the most romantic places on earth. It has lush, mountainous interiors giving way to white beaches and coral-fringed lagoons. Add in a choice of impressive resorts and spas to suit all budgets, attractions and activities, plus a lively foodie scene melding Chinese, Indian, African and French influences, and you have a honeymoon to remember.
