First trip after marriage obviously has to be at one of the best locations. After a few discussions, we decided it should be a beach vacation. Hence Mauritius.
Indeed it was a good choice, a paradise island on mesmerizing blue shades of the Indian Ocean. A perfect place for the honeymooners to lay back and enjoy the enchanting landscapes; endless plantations of sugarcane swaying in the wind, rocky hills and mountains, patches of green farm land and glimpses of the deep blue sea teasing from beyond the mountains.
The Hotel-
We stayed for a week at the warm hospitality of Casuarina Beach resort, on Trou Aux Beaches. Private swimming pools, a spa and and amazing restaurant to name a few luxuries at the hotel.
The hotel has kilometer long private beach, complete with sparkling white sands, turquoise blue waters, canopies, lounging beach chairs, a swimming pool, and a pool side bar.
We'd booked a beach facing cozy cottage.
Actually speaking, we ended up spending much more time at the resort itself 🙂
Having said that, we tried boating on the choppy waters, went snorkeling in the bay, took a glass bottom boat into the ocean, did an under-sea walk, tried paragliding, zip-lining, caught a Tuesday evening traditional dance performance..etc
We even visited a few cities including Port Louis and Grand Bay.
On our last day at Mauritius, we'd even been to Casela Park.
