La Mariposa

"After my studies in Hotel Management I came back to Mauritius with a concept in mind to provide travellers/tourists with a different experience than that offered by the 5 star hotels which are very present in Mauritius. The goal was to create a more intimate and less anonymous environment where our guests would feel at home and at ease. I wanted to make sure that everyone would feel welcome no matter their race, religion or sexual orientation

I am very proud that over the years La Mariposa has become ‘one of the places to be!’ in the LGBT community and even prouder to have helped in creating a ‘home’ where members of the community can travel to and enjoy this beautiful island of mine." - Dweena

La Mariposa, a boutique style Beach Residence with 35 rooms, is nestled in a beautiful tropical garden on the pristine beach of La Preneuse facing the majestic mountain Le Morne Brabant, cited among the 2 World Heritage sites of Mauritius by the UNESCO.

Set on an unique and prime location on one of the island’s sunniest coast with the bluest lagoons and stunning sunsets…La Mariposa initially opened as a Bed and Breakfast in 2005 but was renovated into a 35 bedroom Beach residence in the year 2017 providing a fully operational Beach Restaurant and Bar with attractive packages whether on half board or bed and breakfast

Running as a family business, La Mariposa is proud to employ a team of around 30 committed team members from the surrounding area and take pride in working with the best locals suppliers to give our guests the full Mauritian experience.

We are so proud to have such a high repeater rate and we strive to give the feeling of “’being home away from home” to our all guests irrespectively of their different choices in life and we hope they enjoy the magic of our little paradise island as much as us, Mauritians do ! We specially love our Sunsets and Rainbows …..

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
