I always prefer to visit places where I have never been before, and that’s what gives me pure excitement and unique memories. That’s why I love to travel! For my honeymoon, I was looking for packages on the internet and was keen to travel during the last few days of December since I wanted to celebrate Christmas in Mauritius with my wife. That’s when I came across the website of TravelTriangle.
I had always wanted to celebrate my honeymoon in Mauritius to experience its sparkling ocean, white beaches, excellent weather, and natural beauty. Once I was done finalising the dates, all I needed was the right travel agent to put all the bookings in place.
I’ll always be thankful to TravelTriangle to help me find the best tour agent for my trip. They let me compare different quotes provided by various authorized travel agents. I zeroed in on Holidays 2 Cherish as they provided me exactly what I wanted within my specified budget.
What We Did On Our Honeymoon Trip To Mauritius
Here’s a day-wise account of our 7 days romantic Mauritius trip:
DAY 1: Revelling in the luxuries of our awesome hotel
We landed in Mauritius at noon. At the airport, we met our local representative who greeted us very nicely, briefed us on our entire trip plan, and handed us our itinerary.
Then we were transferred to our hotel – Le Grand Bleu – in a comfortable coach bus. I loved it!
The hotel was great, almost like a second home for us. It was Christmas Eve, so in the evening, the hotel staff arranged a Christmas party for all guests. We had the most fabulous time with great dinner, music, dance, and more.
DAY 2: Enjoying a Christmas party and leisure activities at hotel
This was a leisure day, so we chose to stay at the hotel all day. After a lazy, yet delicious breakfast served by the hotel’s friendly staff, we went to the beach and had a great time.
For lunch we took to the streets to hunt down a good restaurant, and came across ‘Refresh’. It was a very good place serving a variety of sumptuous cuisines and I will recommend it to all trippers of Mauritius.
In the evening we were dancing away at the Christmas party and enjoying the most delicious gala dinner where we were spoilt for choice. I don’t remember when Christmas had last been this much fun!
DAY 3: Speed boating to Ile Aux Cerf and walking under the ocean!
It was on this day that our fun honeymoon trip to Mauritius actually started. We went to Ile Aux Cerf Island, where we booked a water sports package and set about taming the seas!
I just loved the speedboat ride from Mauritius to Ile Aux Cerf island. It was a lifetime experience and I was in awe of the boat rider who was riding with such skill. We both enjoyed it thoroughly. En route we saw a waterfall – a small but visually stunning sight that was spraying us with cool water droplets owing to its close proximity to our boat. It was a surreal, unexpected experience for me and my wife!
After Reaching Ile Aux Cerf Island, we indulged in two marvelous activities – Underwater Sea Walk and Speed Boat Ride. Both the activities gave us one hell of an adventure. If you are doing it for the first time, you will always praise the moment when you decided to do it! The instructors and staff conducting these watersports were very cooperative.
Post lunch at the island itself, we returned to the hotel in the evening. We had an excellent guide – Mr. Kevin – who took great care of our needs and comfort at all times.
DAY 4: City Tour of South Mauritius
This day was reserved for the South Tour of Mauritius. After having breakfast at the hotel, we went shopping and bought a great many local items for our family and friends. After that, we saw many temples, one of which had an enormous statue of Lord Shiva and Goddess Durga. I was amazed to see such big statues of our Hindu gods and goddesses in Mauritius.
We also saw volcano crater, after which we went to a park where people were engaging in different sports like buggy riding. After a tiring, yet exciting tour of Southern Mauritius, we came back to our resort and retired for the night.
DAY 5: City Tour of North Mauritius
Post breakfast, we proceeded for the second round of Mauritius sightseeing – the North Tour of Mauritius. It was basically a city tour which included visiting the capital of Mauritius i.e. Port Louis, along with some historical places like forts, churches, and the waterfront as well. The best part is that the entire tour allowed enough time for a photo session!
Our driver cum guide took us around all these places at our pace. He was very communicative and friendly, and extensively briefed us over the historical facts about each place. After the tour, we went to the supermarket where we bought water bottles and other essential items.
DAY 6: Interacting with lions & giant tortoises at Casela
This was again a leisure day and so we decided to go to Casela Park which is very well known wildlife park in Mauritius. We wanted a close interaction with the big cats, i.e. the lions. So, we hired a taxi from outside of our hotel, and guess what, we found an Indian driver which was the best thing for us as far as comfort and communication were concerned. At Casela, we booked ourselves a Lion Interaction Tour and had a great time being with these majestic beings.
True to its name, this tour literally lets you interact with lions, wherein you can touch them and have your pictures taken. It will give you goosebumps when a lion walks by you!
On our tour here we saw many more animals like different varieties of fish, nd clicked pictures with giant tortoises walking about in the park. I would definitely recommend a visit to this park to everyone on their Mauritius honeymoon. Casela surely made our day!
DAY 7: Bidding farewell to this paradise
We packed our bags and left for the airport to board our flight home with lots of memories and experiences.
From the Christmas party organised by the hotel, to relaxing on the beach, riding a speedboat across the Indian Ocean, walking under the sea, and interacting with lions, our honeymoon trip to Mauritius was an unforgettable adventure. We thank TravelTriangle for making the first trip of our married life a huge success!
Our WOW Moments On The Trip: Christmas Party at hotel | Speed boat ride to Ile Aux Cerf | Underwater Sea Walk | Casela Nature Park | Interacting with lions | Our hotel Le Grand Bleu and its staff | Our attentive and friendly driver cum guide
Our Not-So-WOW Moments On The Trip:
- The local tour operator didn’t mention to the hotel that we are a honeymoon couple which caused hassles
- Mr. Anurag, who had arranged all the activities, didn’t bother to meet us even once
Otherwise the trip was fabulous!
Tips For Future Travelers
- Honeymoon couples must stay at Le Grand Bleu hotel for its unmatched hospitality and luxury. The hotel is great also in terms of the food it provides
- Book watersports from the hotel itself, as it will save you a lot of money. You might end up overpaying if you book it directly at the watersports location
- Buy water bottles from the supermarket only. It will be way cheaper than the ones that the hotel provides you
