Mauritius a truly island paradise with something for everyone.

My experience

Arrived to a warm welcome, the Mauritian people will go out of their way to help you.

The smell and scenery is truly stunning and the hotels are amazing quality ready for relaxation and recharge or if you a watersports/ land sports fan then this island has it all.

From Quad Biking to Zip lining to a visit to the Sacred Hindu lake and Temple, to visiting the interior of the island. This Island has it all.

I was privileged to see and visit:

the Hindu Temple and Lake in Grand Bassan

Black River Gorge and waterfalls to learn about the history.

A Rhumerie –  the only sugar cane process and tasting.

Seven Colours of the Earth, showing the formation of Mauritius.

Port Louis cultural tour – started at the La Citadelle, then went into the market area, then walked through the capital down to the craft markets and port side.Shopping is a must for souvenirs here.

The beaches and resorts are out of this world also the attention to detail and friendliness of everyone – will definitely go back



5* Le Heritage Le Telfair      +      Le Hertiage   Awali   – 2500 hectares of experiences 

Le Telfair  – A small luxury hotel of the world – Very colonial set on a 1 km stretch of pristine beach. On arrival you are met with a breathtaking views of the resort, paradise beach, pool and cabanas. This hotel is definitely for couples, quiet, personal and full use of the spa, loads of sports facilities and golf club included. The rooms are large suite room



Awali – A family feel, with 3 rooms types on all inclusive basis. Rooms are in colonial blocks of six and are very spacious. This part of the resort boasts  the same beach front location with the beach club and watersports available. The bar area is very welcoming and has evening entertainment. The Awali also has a baby, kids and teen programme with fun for all.

Tuesday nights both hotels offer an truly African Experience- a meal set around a large fire with African dancers drummers fire eaters.  It only seats 50 so you would need to book and is an extra cost and worth doing.

As this resort is set in a nature reserve you can take a trip out walking, exploring or quad biking.

4* Tamassa

This Hotel is certainly set in a lovely tropical setting, ALL the rooms are sea facing and the beach is so clean and shallow for younger people – it has a large and open feel. Although this is a family hotel it feels relax and calm.

The Tamassa offers interconnecting rooms, 3 restaurants, 3 pools, and spa. There are 3 board basis from BB, HB to AI. From here you can drive or taxi to local restaurants.

My Favourite for a family hotel. The facilities and standard are excellent – the smells of tropical lilies hang in the air.

4* LUX Belle Mare

One of 2 LUX resorts on Mauritius. A family, couples concept with something for everyone. Facilities include Beach,sports, watersports, Spa, All rooms are Kelly Hoppen design and the very large and spacious, with stunning 1 or 2 bed beach villas with private pools. This hotel boasts beach front location, kids club 3-11 years teens club 12-17 years,photo studio and workshop and lots more sports activities.   The hotel is close to the quaint seaside village of Belle Mare.
