... that we are the last voyage to ever stop in Mauritius. Anyways, 20 of my friends and I rented a catamaran for the day. We got to the dock at about 10 o’clock. We had a beautiful ship with one of those giant hammock-like areas on the front where we could all lay out. There was a large seating area in the back and then an area downstairs to escape from the sun. All food and drinks were ...
... beautiful scenery, and a scarcely populated island. What more can I say? It looked like a Microsoft Windows desktop background. The word surreal does not even suffice. We sat on the beach, ate some chicken, drank some beer, listened to some music, and just chilled. Literally, every worry I had, every preoccupation that clouded my mind, every bit of tension inside of me disappeared for the few hours I was in this place. Simply incredible.

... and riding the centre of the wake! Tried a bit of air but mainly ended with my face in the water! The worst one of which was a jumped off the wake of an approaching boat, got lots of air, thought i was going to land it but the board dug in, got ripped off my feet and i slammed into the water! Not as painful as it could have been! I think the driver felt a bit sorry for me after all of my falls and we ended up out on the water for just under half an ...
http://www.aventuredusucre.com/ Nor the website, nor any tourist book does justice to this museum, located in the north of the island: region Pamplemousses. I saw hundreds of museums, all over the world and this was AMAZING. Whoever designed this museum deserves a statue. It waves the history of the sugar plantations into the history of Mauritius. Even more: it starts with the world history from the 15th century (when the sugar ...
... had with us. Back to beach at 2pm for the free snorkel on the glass-bottomed boat. Takes us fair way down, and out near the reef, and near where there is a channel going out through the reef(would have been too far for us to swim out to). Some quite good coral, and quite a few fish. Back at hotel, have a swim in the pool, doing a few lengths. Dianne has put on 7 kgs since we returned from our trip last year, which she is hoping to lose this trip, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews LUX Belle Mare
I had the privelege of staying here from 1st-8th June and I have to tell you that it was fantastic from top to bottom, start to finish.
Firstly, the best kept secret that none of the other reviews have touched on is the restaurant indochine!!
From the minute we walked in (were sat down and given refreshments, the check in was done for us) we realised we'd latched onto something special. My wife and I over the next 10 days were given service like nothing i have ever experienced before. We got there at 0900 but the room was ready by 10. The rooms are fantastic, we didnt even have the most expensive ones but they were massive. They're cleaned twice a day. Everything is aimed at pleasing the customer. Every nice little touch you can think of is given. From cold face towels and fruit on a cocktail stick, as well as having your sunglasses cleaned on the beach, to your first names being asked and remembered throughout your stay, this is the best place i've ever been to. The food if you're on half board is unbelievable and extremely variable. The breakfasts are fantastic. There are live groups each night with local dancers on some. There are 2 bars. Ask for a cigar and see how they present it to you! The drinks are pricey but if you've come to this place then you've already spent money to get here so don't expect things on the cheap. There is a local superstore, not too big about 10 mins walk. They sell drinks in there if you want to get your own stuff. A bottle of local rum for about £4. The beach is superb, the water warm and this was supposed to be winter. Loads of daily hotel activities, tennis tournament, snorkelling, volleball etc. I could go on for hours so the last thing I want to say is you will not be disappointed in the slightest with this place and the people.
I have just returned from a two week stay at the Beau Rivage with my wife and two children aged 4 and 22 months. I confirm all the earlier reviews that this is an excellent hotel.
Wonderful and romantic
We chose the Beau Rivage hotel for our honeymoon in December. Everything about this hotel was wonderful, from the huge room, to the beautiful beach, to the spotless decor of all public areas. Service was second to none: helful, friendly, genuine. I have travelled exensively because of my job and this is the best hotel I have ever stayed in. Will go back.
We chose the Beau Rivage for our honeymoon back in Sept 2003 and I'm so glad that after having read the other recent reviews that nothing has changed, it is simply SUPERB and we could not recommend it highly enough to anyone, especially honeymooners - pay that bit extra and book one of the honeymoon suites with jacuzzi - an amazing hotel, amazing people, I could go on......
We stayed at the Beau rivage in february 2005 - I agree withthe other reviews that have been posted on the site, it is a fantastic place to stay.
I have just spent Christmas here with my family of five (three grown-up children) and we all had a really good time. This is quite a new resort and the condition of the buildings and grounds is absolutely first-class. The rooms are very spacious indeed in every aspect and impeccably clean. There are lots of pleasing small touches by house-keeping such as leaving the hotel programme of activities turned to the next day with a small flower on top when they turn down your bed. And it was lovely to get a little stocking on Christmas Eve!
We stayed at the Beau Rivage for 14 nights in mid Sept.. Having travelled quite a bit I am hard to impress - but I was impressed.
Outstanding! We had a 7 day stay in this luxurious hotel and had an exceptional holiday. Firstly the location is superb, right on top of a golden sand/crystal clear sea beach. The hotel itself is very clean, well presented with fine decor and beautiful check in area. The rooms are large, bathroom included, each with their own balcony overlooking the ocean and pool/lavish gardens. our room was in the centre of the hotel so we had gorgeous sweeping ocean views.
