In May 2012 I was lucky enough to experience my 2nd visit to this wonderful Island getaway.
The first time I was there was in March 2005 when my fiancé and I headed off to get married in Mauritius. Paradise was awaiting us. That's how I describe it to anyone. It is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. The people are so friendly they cannot do enough to make your stay so memorable. We got married a couple of days after we arrived. The wedding co-ordinators were so nice they organised everything for us and being a travel agent with experience in this area, it meant I knew what to ask for! We got married in a tiny little church and even though it was just the two of us that travelled, our wedding day could not have been more perfect. We stayed at the Maratim Hotel which was beautiful. We had our photos taken on the beach back at our hotel and every time I show them to people they admit to getting jealous! Mauritius will enchant you; it will uplift your soul, making you feel that you belong to the chosen few. You will enjoy personal attention and behind each smile lies the promise of a unique holiday. The island, set in its turquoise sea, is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.
Mauritius has a lot to offer to the holiday maker. It has the most amazing hotels, white sandy beaches, and fantastic water sports, great golf courses plenty of shopping and you must pay a visit to some of the Spas, where you can put yourself into the capable hands of expert.. Spas are now regarded as a must on most people's holiday wish-list.
Mauritius is very popular for weddings and honeymooners. If you are looking for a very special place to spend your honeymoon, Mauritius is definitely the place for you. Every hotel on the island offers extensive wedding and honeymoon packages and they can also help you in organising every single detail of the ceremony.
Everything is possible. You can choose to have an intimate, private occasion or a more adventurous way of exchanging vows. On a sunny beachside, under the sea or in the sky, Mauritius will transform your wedding or your honeymoon into an unforgettable moment just like it did for us. I would definitely recommend people to stay at least on a half board basis if not All Inclusive. It is expensive to eat out in Mauritius and the All Inclusive option is definitely well worth doing.
We flew to South Africa to spend the second week of our honeymoon. I have been to South Africa three times since. What more can I say. If you are looking for plenty to do I would highly recommend it as a holiday destination and it is a great combination with Mauritius for your honeymoon.
When I recently returned to Mauritius to attend the Gold Travel Counsellors Conference, this time I stayed at the 5 star Beachcomber Paradis Hotel; a wonderful property. The service in the hotel was top class and the food was amazing. On this visit I explored the island and all it has to offer. I took the half day Catamaran Cruise which was a fabulous trip where we had a BBQ lunch on board and swam with the dolphins; a fantastic experience. Another day I did the Tour of the Islands South West and we travelled through the Champagne Forest, stopped at the Grand Bassin which is a sacred lake to the Hindu community. We then travelled through the mountains towards the coast at Black River Gorges and its waterfalls.
The Mauritian people always have a friendly smile and offer a wonderful service. The only way I can describe MAURITIUS is PARADISE.
