What can I say about Mauritius that hasn’t been said before? Every time I visit Mauritius (I am very fortunate to have visited numerous times) It never fails to take my breath away . Having had my own wedding there at the fabulous Residence Hotel , located near a small coastal town of Belle Mare on the East Coast.
Mauritius obviously has a very special place in my heart. Even at my very first visit I knew it was a very special place. Mauritius is best known for its romantic beautiful beaches and stunning hotels with it famous hospitality for me it’s all of this but so much more. The beaches and the glorious Indian Ocean are breath takingly beautiful that is true but there is so much more to it than this. If you can bear to drag yourself away from your stunning hotel you will find a different world from lush mountainous forests , beautiful nature parks with endemic flora and fauna , to multi-coloured volcanic sands.
There is a huge variety of cultures here which combines and results in the most amazing mouth-watering food. From amazing local street vendors where they make the most delicious fresh gajaks ( mauritian snack/delicacy) to award winning fine dining restaurants.
There are most stunning settings for outdoor dining such as Domaine Anna where you can have a fantastic meal and then walk through their beautiful gardens with waterfalls and water lily covered, coi rich pools with of course giant land tortoises! If that wasn’t enough there is beautiful flora and fauna through out their beautiful gardens! We were lucky enough to have our Hindu wedding ceremony there and it was absolutely perfect!
Of course the majority of visitors are arriving for a luxurious break and Mauritius certainly doesnt disappoint on that score! The 5 star hotels are out of this world and the thing that sets them apart for me from other comparable destinations is the service of their staff. I can honestly say that the service is second to none, they go above and beyond the call of duty and know exactly how to make their guests feel like Royalty!
