Honeymooners, who might choose Mauritius
A nice piece over on The Telegraph compares the three luxury and paradise Indian Ocean islands of Mauritius, Maldives and Seychelles – to discover the dreamiest honeymoon location of all.
Mauritius gets top vote for ‘fine dining’, for ‘watersports’, and ‘for action and adventure’. Sound right for you?
Here’s how The Telegraph frames its piece: all three are undoubtedly wonderful – with ‘their perfect white sand beaches and swaying palms’ – so how to choose between them?
Well, there are subtle distinctions, it suggests. You may find one just slightly suits you better than another…
An island to suit
‘Luckily, these paradise escapes have unique charms,’ it thinks, ‘so whether you’re looking for action, adventure and Michelin stars, the most luxurious hotels on Earth, or just a chance to get back to nature, there’s an island to suit.’
Mauritius is the first of these it describes – but see the piece in full for more of the detail.
Of its dining, The Telegraph says, Mauritius’s ‘gourmet restaurants’ ‘are worth the flight alone’. That’s quite some endorsement! And it comes up with a number of specific recommendations: the One & Only Le Saint Geran, Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Le Maison d’Ete, Constance Belle Mare Plage – among others.
Once you’ve eaten your fill – or maybe beforehand – go for the great diving and snorkelling, ‘a given’ in the Indian Ocean, ‘but Mauritius has the additional bonus of being a kitesurfing hot spot’.
‘If you’re keen to combine romance with some wave action,’ says The Telegraph, ‘stay at The St Regis Mauritius, a five-star former plantation house with an on-site kitesurfing club and luxe beachfront suites overlooking One Eye, a legendary reef wave in the lagoon’.
And even if that kind of action isn’t the adventure you’re looking for, the piece seems confident Mauritius could be your ideal destination.
Here’s its take more broadly on ‘action and adventure’.
‘There’s so much more to this island than just sun, sea and sand’, it says.
‘Explore the buzzy capital of Port Louis, with its Natural History Museum and vibrant market; see giant tortoises and crocodiles at La Vanille Nature Park; hike to Grand Bassin – a sacred lake in Black River Gorges National Park’ – and more. Much more.
