About Us

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.

Running as a family business, La Mariposa is proud to employ a team of around 30 committed members from the surrounding areas to support the local community. Also, we take great pride in working with the best local suppliers to give our guests the full Mauritian experience.

We strive to give the feeling of “home away from home” to our guests while they discover and enjoy the magic of our little paradise island.

Over the last 15 years since our opening in 2005 we have been blessed to count a very high rate of repeaters yearly... this says it all..

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Set on 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.

Moving along the environmental practises, we are working towards being as “plastic free as possible” and we value enormously all the help we can get in this venture. Our beautiful marine flora and fauna certainly deserves it!
