Looking quite literally like a dot in the Indian Ocean, more than 3000km away both from India and its nearest continent Africa, Mauritius is one of the favourite tropical beach destinations of the world. Adorned with lovely beaches, sparkling blue lagoons and colourful coral reefs, this tiny island country can only be reached by flight. One may avail the services of airlines, such as Air Mauritius and Air India operating a direct flight, and cover the aerial distance of around 4451 km from Chennai to Mauritius in 5 hours 45 minutes. While, connecting flights like: Emirates and Air Seychelles may take 15 hours to 45 hours for the whole journey. Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport (MRU) is the most important and main airport in the island country of Mauritius. The airport is located at a distance of about 48 km from the capital city of Port Louis.
However, if one is planning to cover the Chennai to Mauritius distance by road or rail, then there are no possible mediums available for that. For, Mauritius is an island country located in the Indian Ocean. However, one can opt to travel via seaways, provided they have enough time in hand to cover the distance of 3079 nautical miles.
Let’s take a look at the below information, and find how to reach Mauritius from Chennai through different mediums of transportation.
By Air: There is one Chennai to Mauritius direct flights every week, served by Air Mauritius every Tuesday. The flight leaves Chennai International Airport at 7:40 am and reaches at 11:55 am at Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, and keeping the time difference in mind, it takes around 5 hours 45 minutes to reach. There are a couple of other connecting flights like Air Austral via Saint-Denis or Emirates via Dubai. But the Chennai to Mauritius flight time is way too long, over 10 hours or so, and it is best not to go with those unless absolutely necessary. For more frequent flights, one can fly to Delhi or Mumbai as well, which have 2 and 5 flights per week to Mauritius respectively.
By Sea: If one is not in a hurry to reach Mauritius, and wants to explore the beauty of nature, then this is the best option to go with. One can book a cruise from Chennai port to Port Louis in Mauritius. This will be the dream journey for people who are nature lovers. One may get ample of time to spend with their friends or family as the journey takes around 12 to 13 days to reach Mauritius from Chennai via cruise, depending on the weather conditions.

Wahid's 6 days trip to MauritiusExtremely unsatisfied, never rebooking with Travel Triangle !!
Prashant's 10 days trip to MauritiusDrinking water is chargeable in hotel. No free water dispenser Nice location of hotel, nice ambience, nice food
Bhardwaj's 6 days trip to MauritiusHotel room has no facility for mobile charging ports. No iron and no washroom utilities like toothpaste. Drinking water was limited for a day. Activities
Manoj's 5 days trip to MauritiusThe overall experience was OK, not so great. Room preparation for the honeymoon was not as expected completely below par. Further, my travel bookings were complete as per the local vendor linked completely differently from the travel agent mentioned in the itinerary. He took us for his designated location for water sports, shopping, etc. and not any place if we want to. Timing for different locations was very bad, beaches did not have time for more than 1 hour however it was the main thing in our itinerary.
Anurag's 6 days trip to MauritiusOverall experience of the trip was quite good, amidst the fear of corona everywhere, We were still able to enjoy our trip in Mauritius as it is the least affected country. This was our honeymoon trip and so we were very excited. With honeymoon-couples all over the trip, the stay at Hotel Intercontinental was phenomenal. With four different restaurants, serving various categories of food like Asian, Indian, Mediterranian etc. It was a good experience. The travel guides serving and guiding us while travelling within Mauritius (On SIT basis) were quite polite and helpful. We were welcomed at the hotel and was provided with an ocean facing room and a sparkling wine(Local made) to add glitters to the experience. Though, With the price, I paid for this trip, I would rate the overall experience of the booking, co-ordination and stay as 3.8/5. The reason of my rating is due to the below factors: Three major issues, I want to highlight are 1. Though, we were told by our travel partner(Travel-Triangle/aaojao.com) that we'll be given a welcome Polo-Tshirts but the same was NOT provided as there were no stock of the same in the hotel. 2. Room Decoration : Hotel room was not at all decorated as expected. Only few rose petals were put on the bed with two towels folded in the ♥ form. 3. Drinking Water: One of the most essentials, while travelling is the drinking water. At the hotel, it became a massive surprise for us, when we were told to buy expensive water bottles while at lunch/Dinner. Also, Complimentary water bottles were'nt provided on time in our rooms for first two days later they started providing two times a day and on-time. Please Note: At Intercontinental, as per the policy of the hotel, It should provide 2-3 water bottle - two times a day. I may recommend others for this trip provided, all get what is promised and No last-minute surprises for water atleast!! The Under water sea walk and the sea beach at hotel!!
Ashish's 5 days trip to MauritiusThe arrangements were good. Our trip went well. It was a couple trip to Mauritius and it went almost the way we expected. It's just that it was very tiring waiting on airport on the layover of flights.
Radhika's 6 days trip to MauritiusHotel was not as per expected standards. Property was okay, rooms were really small. Service and food quality was really poor and would not recommend anyone to opt for Anelia. Better options were found to be available at comparable prices later.
Amitkmr's 6 days trip to MauritiusIt was a great trip to Mauritius, enjoyed the activities and site seeing. Thanks for providing great services. Hotel and Transport were very good and friendly. It was a great experience with AirnWings Team. One suggestion-more beaches can be added to travel itinerary than commercial complexes.......as Mauritius is famous for crystal clear beaches.
