Ile Maurice ~ Mauritius
We did not visit this one on our BMW R1200GS Adventure, but we celebrated 25 years of marriage here this week and I thought of sharing our experience with you.
Beautiful beaches and sunsets that are out of a magazine… this is really what it looks like here, no photoshop or trying to make it look better than what it really is.
On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by hotel staff that immediately make you feel welcome and offered us a welcome cocktail while they completed the necessary documentation.
Then we were upgraded from a deluxe room to an executive suite, not sure if this was because we are celebrating a very special anniversary. (25 years) We were very surprised and happy for the upgrade.
Nothing can beat a dinner right on the beach with the sound of waves right by your dinner table. The food is signature style quality in look and taste and all the staff are so friendly and helpful, nothing is too much for them or too much bother.
Day 1: was spent getting to know the resort, unwinding at the sauna and reading a book while it rained it the late afternoon. The perfect start to a very relaxed and peaceful break.
Day 2: we decided to take a scooter ride out to Grand Bay, so although it is not on my BMW, the scooter option was a lot of fun and we blended in with the many locals using their small 125cc motorcycles.
Day 3: was spent doing water sports and enjoying the sun, beach and cocktails.
Day 4: we decided to travel a bit further out on the scooter to explore more of the island.
Day 5: we are celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary on a catamaran cruise. I will post a separate blog just on this special day.
Day 6: we will be relaxing once again at the sauna, reading a book and winding down.
Day7: we head back to South Africa
Below are some pictures from this beautiful island, walks on the beach and our time here in Mauritius.
