    As the world reopens, travel is getting a little easier. The secret to a seamless trip is extra planning. Be sure to check your country's regulations. Here's the status of our destinations:



    Great news! Mauritius is fully open! We compiled the most frequently asked questions below. We also invite you to consult the official Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority website for the latest updates and more detailed information:

    La Reunion

    Social distancing is recommended but is no longer mandatory. Masks are not required indoors and outdoors, including in transportation (even if it is still recommended). To visit Reunion Island, it is compulsory for unvaccinated people to present a Covid-19 test (PCR test less than 72 hours or Antigen test less than 48 hours). Vaccinated travellers do not need to present any test upon departure. Since 14 May, ‘reasonable excuses’ are not required for unvaccinated travellers (however a negative Covid test is still compulsory).


    Over in China, the doors to our resorts and retreats are open to domestic travellers only, as borders remain closed for now. A health QR code is required upon check-in. Local travellers from high and middle-risk areas should check in with their regional's regulations.


    The Maldives' one island=one resort has made it an alluring destination since day 1.

    You are no longer required to present a PCR negative test result upon arrival to the Maldives. This applies to both vaccinated and non-vaccinated travellers. Wearing a face mask is no longer mandatory, except at health facilities.
