Enjoy the photos, hopefully we'll be able to get some videos up soon too.

When we get a bit more time we'll write a bit about the things we've done in the month or so we've been away so far. For now, hopefully the photos give some idea as to what we've been up to - sorry about some of the lame photo titles, in order to publish a photo on …

Port Louis Mauritius

... ready for our ‘Yemen Safari by Truck’.

We were conveyed efficiently to our air conditioned bus and then driven for about one hour to a place called Casela Nature and Leisure Park. The Island is volcanic but green with impressive mountain scenery, lush vegetation, large plantations of specially bred sugar cane and lots of unusual tropical trees and birds.

The tour itself was perhaps a little dull and had it not been for the giant ...

... questions and answers, there was lots of hugs and kissing, teary eyes and gratefulness for this special time of rededication. The pictures I have included in this entry pretty much sum up our Feast here in Mauritius. Tomorrow night, I will start my journey home with a quick stop in Paris for the night, and then back home. Therefore, this entry will be the last one for this blog. I hope it has been inspiring to some. The Brethren in Mauritius and ...

... of the World Tomorrow. With a script as rich as God’s Script, one can never go wrong if he follows the Lead! From the comments I received afterwards, it seems to be what God wanted His people in this part of the world to hear at this time.

If everything goes as planned (today), we should be at sea tomorrow, on a catamaran and one or two other activities designed to bring us together for several hours for a wonderful fellowship. “ bientt!”, then. Good night ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Sands Resort & Spa Flic En Flac

    Perfect place to celebrate our silver wedding!

    from

    We have just returned from this wonderful hotel. Most of my comments are positive with just a few minor negatives.

    The Perfect Honeymoon

    from

    We have just come back from a perfect 2 week honeymoon at

    The Sands Resort. As it was a special occasion we paid more

    than we usually do for a holiday, but we weren't disappointed.

    The service was fantastic, the staff friendly, the hotel setting stunning, the food was lovely & the entertainment spot on...

    I honestly feel like we picked the best hotel on the island.

    Bel servizio, ma il mare...

    from

    L'albergo piccolo e accogliente, ideale per chi non ama i posti troppo affollati e caotici.

    Ottimo il servizio, la pulizia delle camere, molto spaziose e tutte con vista sul mare e il ristorante ( i camerieri sono un p troppo solerti...non fatevi portare via il piatto prima di aver finito...)

    Aspetto dolente: l'albergo situato in un punto dove non c' barriera corallina e sono state messi dei frangiflutti proprio davanti alla spaggia...il mare non proprio quello che si apprezza quando si va a Mauritius.

    Carenti le attivit sportive.

    Per chi va ad agosto: l'albergo in una posizione abbastanza ventosa, in serate fredde o giornate senza sole non si riesce a stare in spiaggia.

    Stunning

    from

    Stunning hotel, the photographs on its website do not do it enough justice, especially if you arrive as we did when the sun was rising over the moutains, it takes your breath away. As experienced and well travell as we were, we did not expect the marvellous service we recieved there, the staff were very friendly, service fast and efficient, food excellent and varied every night and the rooms spotlessley clean and well serviced twice a day. the evening entertainment must have been put up a notch since previous reviews as although we saw the same acts a couple of times, every evening was different singers or floorshows. Well worth a visit for the quiet beach and great watersports as well. 5 stars.

    Absolutely Fabulous

    from

    After reading reviews on this site my girlfriend and I decided that this sounded the right hotel for us; within our budget and we were certainly not disappointed. The whole experience from the minute we arrived was of having found our own little bit of paradise. The hotel itself is in the best position on the Flic en Flac coastline, nicely secluded with its own sheltered bay. There aren't too many rooms so there is a feeling of a small personal hotel and the attentive service adds to this. Whilst it could be true that the food in the evenings does repeat itself, the variety on offer does make it difficult to find fault.

    Loved the sea,

    from

    We spent 10 days at the Sands, Flic Flac and probably will not return there. We stayed on a half board basis and found the food rather repetitive. The beach was excellent but beach loungers were booked quite early in the morning. Drinks and food are grossly overpriced compared to the prices at the local supermarket (which is a good 10 minutes drive by car). If you dont have a car, you are sort of stuffed.. Ditto with the laundry.

    Sands resort mauritius absolutely wonderful

    from

    We came back from our second visit to Maruitius last month, last time went to Maritim this time to the Sands Resort and it was great. We were not sure what to expect as it is not in British brochures. The rooms were large with a separate dressing area and large bathroom.

    It is quite a compact hotel and the walk from rom to beach was a matter of seconds. Very quite hotel to stay, not many children.

    Good sheltered area of sea for swimming and lovely clean beach

    The staff were incredilbly attentive and food very good and varied.

    We hired bikes one day to explore but to get out of the area it is mainly uphill! Hotel is a couple of miles from nearest town

    Horse riding can be arranged locally.

    Got married here

    from

    I just wanted to say that we were married here in Aug 2004 and had the perfect wedding. We were the only couple getting married in the 2 weeks we were there and were therefore given fantastic attention at all times. The staff were very helpful and the food delicious.

    It was a perfect hotel for a lovely peaceful wedding and a relaxing honeymoon. We found lots to do around the island and hired a jeep and went over to the east coast armed with a map.

    We did have trouble with our wedding planner who informed my mother she could get her a fanastic hand made typical mauritius gift for us. My mother gave her the money and the present never turned up and the lady in question (Maria) has since left. So be careful. We tried not to let this ruin our holiday.

    Great hotel shame about the noise

    from

    this hotel was every thing we expected for the price and was a great location for our honeymoon the room was a good size with big bathrooms and walk in clothes storage

    Paradise with excellent service

    from

    We stayed at the sands resort in Flic-en-Flac for 2 weeks in May 2005, staying half board. We were looking for a hotel on the west coast (best area for weather and beaches) that didn't haven't many children and where we could enjoy sports and relaxation after a hard year of work. We found it all at this resort.
