Here are the precious moments I managed to capture with my camera of our honeymoon trip to Mauritius
Being a photography enthusiast, I tried to capture the essence of Mauritius and take back with us memories of what made our honeymoon a perfect holiday. Mauritius, as a honeymoon destination, gave us a lovely mix of adventure, romance, and natural beauty.
Welcome to the lap of luxury
We landed into Port Louis and straightaway checked into the exotic Anelia Resorts Villa & Spa. Our rooms were beautifully decorated and extremely comfortable.
After taking a short nap in the afternoon, the resort had a luxurious three-course meal prepared for us. The evening began with drinks and starters, and ended with a delicious dinner.
Covering the picturesque landscape on the south island tour
Post breakfast, we enjoyed a lovely sightseeing tour of the south island on the second day. The visit to Mangal Mahadev temple was the best moment of our day.
We returned to the resort after the sightseeing tour at 4 pm. It gave us a chance to enjoy the evening, relaxing in our room, and admire the sea-facing view.
Making new friends along the way
We departed for the north island sightseeing tour and visited beautiful places like Le Caudan Waterfront, Champs de Mar race course, and Citadel.
We went on the sightseeing tour in a shared cab with three other couples from India who were on a honeymoon trip to Mauritius. We got along with them quite nicely as we had plenty of time to talk to each other and share our travel stories.
A visit to the most beautiful island in Mauritius
After having a delicious breakfast, we headed out for a visit to Ile Aux Cerfs. The journey to the island via speed boat was very thrilling. The excitement and adventure were just the beginning, as we had included the water sports package on our trip to Ile Aux Cerfs. We had a great time in taking part in undersea walking, paragliding, jet skiing, and banana boat ride.
Soaking in the sun on a leisure day
The day started a little later than usual, as we had a leisure day to enjoy on our honeymoon trip to Mauritius. We spent our afternoon exploring the resort and using the facilities provided there. In the evening, we rented a canoe and paddled out in the ocean for a few hours.
A romantic setting on a catamaran cruise
The first half of our day was free, so all we did was chill at the resort and spend some time with each other. In the afternoon, we departed for a catamaran cruise that would take us around the scenic coastline of Mauritius.
The final night of our honeymoon trip to Mauritius ended with a romantic dinner at the restaurant in the resort. The food was delicious, the wine was smooth, and the music helped create a memorable ambiance.
Bidding farewell to a heavenly vacation
Post breakfast, we checked out of the resort and headed towards the airport for our return flight to New Delhi.
If I were to summarize the trip in one phrase then it would be ‘mindblowing’. My wife and I lived every moment of our honeymoon trip in Mauritius to the fullest. It only would’ve been possible with the tireless efforts of TravelTriangle and Travel Plug. There were no glitches on our trip, as everything went according to the itinerary perfectly. I hope this would be one of many beautiful vacations my wife and I would take together in our lives together.
