“Travelling is like a giant canvas and the painting on the canvas is only limited by one’s imagination.” ~Ross Morley
For Rakshith, traveling is a way to escape the cruel reality of this fast-paced, materialistic life and a means to connect with nature. It is a phenomenon that needs to be experienced.
Our honeymoon trip to Mauritius was a cherishable and romantic experience. I chose Mauritius for our honeymoon because of the scenic islands it boasts of. I prefer to travel to a place which is profusely rich with natural pulchritude. My ideal destination is where I can forget all about my daily routine and embrace the beauty of the Mother Nature and Mauritius made me forget all about it. The turquoise waters of the ocean and blue lagoons in Mauritius beckoned us to spend our honeymoon here.
I got to know about TravelTriangle through its social media channels. Since my destination was already decided, the TravelTriangle executive took no time to help me finalize my Mauritius Honeymoon Package.

Day 1: Arrival in Mauritius
We took our flights from Bangalore in the morning and arrived in Mauritius in the evening. We were picked up from the airport and transferred to Ambre Sun Resort in Belle Mare. We spent the evening at the resort and enjoyed the romantic beachside dinner with live music. A perfect romantic start to our honeymoon!
Day 2: Watersports and excursion to Ile Aux Cerf Island
After we had our breakfast at the resort, we began our day with fun-filled water sports activities. Walking under the sea with colorful marine life creatures was an enthralling experience. It was like being in a huge aquarium. The tube ride in the ocean waters was a delightful experience.
Our next stop was Ile Aux Cerf Island. We had heard plenty about the crystal clear turquoise waters of the ocean. And wanted to check for ourselves. So we took a speedboat to the island. We were enchanted by the chic and wild settings of the islands and the breathtaking waterfalls. After we had a sumptuous lunch in one of the restaurants on the island, we returned back to the resort. It was a splendid day!
Day 3: Leisure day in Port Louis
Today was all about exploring the capital. We took a scenic ride to Port Louis through sugarcane farms. We made our first stop at the historical Citadel Fort which offered us the stunning panoramas of the city and the oldest horse racing tracks. We spend the rest of the day at our leisure indulging in shopping and gambling at the Casino.
Day 4: Learning building ships and Chamarel Waterfalls
Our day began with learning how to build ships at the Model Ship Factory where we saw a glimpse of the ship making process. It was a joyful experience beyond our expectations. Our next stop was Trou aux Cerfs to witness the huge crater of a dormant volcano. The crater looked like a blue eye surrounding by lush greenery and dense forests. We visited the picturesque Chamarel Waterfalls which enthralled us with its roaring waters. But the showstopper was the Chamarel Coloured Earth. We were simply astounded by looking at the undulating colorful dunes which are a beautiful resultant of a volcanic eruption. Anyone who visits Mauritius must come to see this intriguing natural phenomenon.
Day 5: Casela National Park Day Tour
This day could not have been any better. I am a nature lover and interacting with wild animals at Casela National Park brought me closer and more appreciative of nature. And I can’t even begin to describe my playful moments with the lions. It was a dream come true for a wildlife enthusiast like me. Riding a roller coaster in the woods was another unmatchable experience for us. The memories of this day are deeply etched in my heart.
Day 6: Adios, Mauritius
Since we had our flight, we enjoyed our day at the resort making the most of the facilities. We chilled in the infinity pool at the resort and played beach volleyball. We bid our adieu to Mauritius with one final swim and a scrumptious lunch at the beach before we were transferred to the airport in the evening.
WOW Moments from the trip
- Undersea walking
- Tube ride
- Interaction with the lions
Any negative experience on the trip
Some of the underwater activities were canceled due to rains. Other than that, everything was fantabulous.
