Bali Vs Mauritius – Whats your pick?

Well, after 40 days of lockdown we all have an ardent desire to escape somewhere and cross the boundaries of the house at least if not the international borders. It’s time to for some major detox and rejuvenation. If you are confused, and the confusion is Bali vs Mauritius, then you are in the right place. Let’s take a closer look at each aspect of a vacation in both these destinations in detail.


The breeze in Bali takes away all the worry and the pleasant sound of the waves adds a tinge of mischief while the silent seashore invites you to soak your feet. Mauritius, on the other hand, provides you with tranquil and unpolluted beaches apart from which, it is a paradise for the surfers.

Bali hosts a wide range of affordable luxury hotels, resorts, the perfect private pool villas and exotic private beach resorts for a picturesque experience. Since most of the cities are within a 30-minute drive, travellers usually opt for a split stay option with different stay options in each place whereas Mauritius is a little heavy on the pocket but again worth the price as the stay is usually at the same resort and they take care of the admission tickets for a few activities from their side on a minimum stay of 6 nights. The hotels also offer a complimentary cruise experience with the 6-night stay.

Resorts in Mauritius


Both being the short hauls can be explored in a week and no time than summer can do justice to the sunset.

Indians being too specific about the food preferences and the spices usually prefer Bali because of its Indonesian delights and trendy art cafes with healthy vegan options. Also Bali keeps you engaged with various activities such as temple visits, splendid cultural dance fests and the traditional Kecak shows. Again Mauritius has a limited variety restricted to French dishes and alcohol and it offers more of a standard set of activities that every resort provides. Notable ones would be Island tour, Baird part, Catamaran Cruise etc..If at all you are planning to book the water sports activities in advance, keep in mind that all the activities are highly weather dependent. This is one of the crucial factors for people to make a choice on the destination. Of course yeah, as a traveller, one would want to be so sure about what can be expected of from the vacation. Thus Mauritius needs to be planned cautiously.

Water sports in Bali


If you like the sound of waves and enjoy its soothing touch, Bali is the place for you, with 15 beaches open for tourist activities. While a person who wants scenic beauty and a silent undisturbed view would totally cherish the still seashores of Mauritius, it’s a lovely place for the voracious readers.


Apart from the resort the places to explore in Bali are many and the commutation is also very simple, cabs or private cars are easily available and the drivers are friendly and share their knowledge about the touristy sites, but this is not the case in Mauritius as you will have to depend on the hotel for transportations as they would be arranging for a 3 island tour and anything apart from that is at an additional charge.

Adrenaline rush

Now for the super young enthusiasts, who want to experience some intense adrenaline rush with the adventure sports like scuba diving, snorkelling, hiking and paragliding, Bali provides options galore. On the contrary, Mauritius is more of cruises and zoo visits with a range of aquariums. It does offer water sports activities as well but as mentioned earlier taking the activities directly would be the best bet.

Shop till you drop

Now what you have saved till the last day of the trip is not going to stay in your pocket if you take a stroll on the beach walk shopping centre in Seminyak. They have some brilliant accessories and comfortable clothing and really pretty footwear to complement with and if you have good bargaining skills then the shopping bit is sorted for you. Mauritius is more of a commercial place with malls and stuff, so bargaining would be a little difficult. 

Again or never again

Also, Bali has its own addiction and hence a great chunk of tourists tend to revisit for its affordable stays and activities but Mauritius is like an onetime watch movie, nothing very fancy to offer for the second time but the ones specific about cleanliness its most definitely spick and span. 

Party all night 

Nightlife in Bali has gained its popularity with a plethora of night clubs and pubs to dance in and drink your heart out. Mauritius is again for the niche crowd who like fine dining and elegant ambience and sophisticated cocktails. More like the French way. Grand baie is one of the notable places for you to experience the nightlife at its peak. If you are a freak who wants to party from 6 PM to 6 AM then, you gotta choose a resort near Grand baie.
