Six kilometres from the end of the direct flight from Perth to Mauritius, there's the Shandrani Resort & Spa, one of eight Beachcomber resorts in Mauritius.

And there, seemingly within minutes of walking in from the airport, you can put away your wallet.

Shandrani bills itself as being the only five-star, fully inclusive resort in Mauritius, and that includes French champagne after 6pm, mini bar, three meals a day in a choice of five restaurants, a la carte dining, snacks in bars, water and land sports, nine-hole golf, entertainment, a massage and more.

Beachcomber points out that at the end of a stay, there are virtually no extras.

Resorts in Mauritius are known for their widespread "half board" packages which include breakfast and dinner but Beachcomber has taken it a step further.

And Beachcomber managing director Rod Eather points out that the service is extended to the morning that guests check in, if they have to arrive early, or after the 2pm check-out, if they have a late flight.

Seven of the Beachcomber's resorts are on the west coast, away from prevailing weather and making them pretty much a year-round proposition. All are rated four-star or above.

The Trou aux Biches Resort and Spa is the newest property on the island.
It has six restaurants adjacent to the beach or seven main swimming pools, and the 90 beachfront suites, senior suites and villas all have their own pools.

It is 10 minutes from the desirable Grand Baie township and nightspot in the north of the island.

Mauritius is one of the easier places for us to visit with direct Air Mauritius flights from Perth at 2.30am on Mondays.
