Between the Guerlain spa, the Givenchy spa and the Six Senses spa, the hotels on Mauritius certainly have the well-being side of things covered! Although all of the spas are equally impressive, the one at the Dinarobin hotel is worth special mention. This temple of well-being offers a variety of impressive treatments using Clarins products, from ayurvedic treatments to reflexology and even shiatsu. Do bear in mind, though, that such facilities are no longer exclusive to five-star hotels; now even lower categories of accommodation offer such services. It is worth remembering, though, that although such establishments claim to have a 'spa', it is often nothing more than a massage room.
