My trip to Mauritius

I have just returned from a dream holiday to Mauritius and what am amazing trip it was.

This was my first time there, so as a couple we decided to stay in the Victoria for 2 hotel, an adult only section of the Victoria Beachcomber resort and spa. This part of the hotel has only 40 rooms, with its own stretch of beach, swimming pool with swim up pool  bar, pool bar and the Morris Beef dining room, so you could eat there or have snacks at the pool, but we could also use all the facilities of the main hotel, which had an Italian and a Sea food restaurant.

We flew with Emirate airlines from Dublin via Dubai. Check in at the hotel was excellent and then we were driven around to our room in a beach buggy. This was a beautiful ocean view room, a stones throw from the beach. We opted for the all inclusive option, and most options on the menu was included in this.

I have never felt as chilled out and relaxed on a holiday, and for the first few days we just lazed on the beach, with the odd dip in the ocean in cool off. At night we relaxed at the fire pit listening to chilled out music. Bliss!!!

Staff at the hotel were so nice and pleasant, the customer service was excellent.

Whilst we were there we did a few trips.

First was a speed boat trip, we seen loads of dolphins , and then we moved on and in the bluest ocean you ever seen we were able to swim along side the biggest turtles I have ever seen.  We took a day trip to Port Louis, first to see the markets with such an array of vegetables, and then over to the harbour, which had lots of bars and restaurants around the water front , and a huge modern shopping centre. We also took a tour around the island (which is very green) visited the Chamarel Waterfalls, visited the Rum making factory in Chamarel, seen tea plantations, and seen monkeys in their natural habitiat in a nature reserve.

Yes, it may cost slightly more than your standard holiday but totally worth it.
