Our experts have traversed the globe looking for the best holidays and destinations. Tony Camerota, our Indian Ocean & Middle East Product Manager travelled to Mauritius to spend time at the LUX* Resorts & Hotels on the island in June:
Six whole days on the paradise island of Mauritius to experience all that the stunning LUX* Resorts & Hotels have to offer; fantastic. I was off to an excellent start with British Airways Club World flatbed service – 12 hours absolutely flies by (do you see what I did there?). I would always recommend paying that little bit extra on these long haul flights. You get a great night’s sleep and are ready for your holiday as soon as you touch down.
Some of the highlights and ‘must do’s’ when you’re on this magnificent island include an early morning speedboat trip to see dolphins, a bicycle tour to visit a local village, a treasure hunt on the Ile Des Deux Cocos, a culinary treasure hunt at Merville beach, yoga and spa treatments, snorkelling and golf lessons (to name but a few!).
Every night can be as different as you make it with activities including wine tasting, poker, pool parties, star gazing or watching a movie on a giant cinema screen on the beach.
LUX* Resorts and Hotels have truly incredible properties dotted around the island that accommodate for all tastes for couples and families alike. They offer a different type of luxury holiday concept; by encouraging guests to escape from the normal trappings and routine of normal life. You may come across a secret bar, experience an impromptu treasure hunt or spend an evening watching a film on the beach.
