Inclusions: Accommodation at Le Surcouf Hotel, Transfers, Breakfast & Dinner, Sightseeing, North Island Tour, South Island Tour, Ile Aux Cerf and much more.
Since we began our honeymoon planning, me and my wife were a bit confused whether to pick Maldives or Mauritius. After a lot of discussion and research, we finally decided to go to Mauritius. I was searching for the best Mauritius honeymoon packages when I came across TravelTriangle. We found their packages to be way better than other portals and the fact that we could customize our own package was different and commendable.
A Joyful Beginning
On the first day, we left for Mauritius from the Mumbai International Airport by 6.45 am and reached Mauritius by 11.30 am. We had to get visa on arrival after which, we were transferred to the Le Surcouf Hotel. We reached the hotel by 1.30 pm and received a warm welcome from the hotel officials.
The hotel property was a great and spacious one. It was set amidst a lush green garden and the beach front did the magic for us. Tired from the day’s journey, we relaxed to the core and retired to bed early.

Our second day was booked for the North Island tour. After a delicious breakfast we first explored the Sugar Factory nearby with a little bit of local shopping at Belle Mare. Our North Island tour had officially begun as we proceeded to the historical Citadelle de Port-Louis and enjoyed the historical past of Mauritius.
Later we went to admire the French architecture at Place D’Armes. Other than that, we also enjoyed a unique shopping experience at the amazing Caudan Waterfront. A wonderful day had come to an end and we called it a night post our dinner at the hotel.
A Day Amidst The Nature
The third day was reserved for the South Island tour. We started out in the morning after a scrumptious breakfast. It was more of south west and we loved exploring the roots of Mauritius. We visited the striking crater of Trou Aux Cerfs which is an extinct volcano.
In the afternoon, we also visited the Casela Nature Park which is rich in flora and fauna. We were surrounded by greenery everywhere and we also got to spot fierce white lions, zebras, and many types of tropical birds. It was too much fun and the experience at Casela was unique indeed.
Indulging In Water Fun At Ile Aux Cerf Islands
It was the fourth day that we were looking forward to with great excitement to visit the amazing Ile Aux Cerf Islands. Post breakfast, we were transferred to the island via a speed boat.
From the ride itself we could feel how Mauritius is filled with thrill when it comes to the water activities. We went on to experience the most awaited underwater sea walking at Ile Aux Cerf. Walking and exploring life underwater amidst the sea was an unforgettable moment for us.
Calm Before The New Year Bash
Tired of all the fun activities the previous day, we decided to rest on the fifth day and plan out our next day activities. We had a hearty meal in the afternoon and enjoyed every bit of luxury at the hotel as we had to gear up for the New Year’s Bash. The hotel had arranged for a New Year Party and we had such a gala time with other couples and guests at the hotel. Welcoming the New Year at such a romantic destination was a different feeling altogether.
Being A Water Baby In Mauritius
Our sixth day was the most adventurous of all days. Post breakfast, we started out the water activities offered by the resort. We had planned for kayaking, parasailing and tube ride and all three of them were a level up from what we were expecting.
Flying in the air and kayaking in middle of the beach was a great experience indeed. Tube ride was a ride to remember. The day was filled with fun and adventure and we couldn’t have asked for more. As we had to depart the next day, we made sure we get enough rest too and we called it a night.
