On the day of my birthday, I was whisked away to a beautiful hotel in the lovely seaside town of Flic-en-Flac, in the Black River region. We checked in around lunch time, and were greeted with a deliciously refreshing coconut and mint mocktail.
The weather was perfect, beautiful sunshine and a lovely temperature. I couldn’t wait to get on the beach!
I’ve just got back from a lovely week away celebrating my 25th birthday in Mauritius, with my boyfriend and his family. Even after visiting quite a number of times, there are still areas of the country I am yet to discover. So we made it our mission one day to explore the capital, Port Louis, as well as some of the north of the island.
We set out in the morning towards Port Louis, which as you can probably guess from the name, is a port full of beautiful boats.
We strolled past admiring the yachts, and wondered how much the one that was for sale would cost. Far too much, I’m sure!
I was lucky enough to be rostered two flights to Mauritius this month, and since I’ve already spent a couple of holidays there and seen a lot of the beautiful sights that the country has to offer, I knew they would be the perfect chance to relax on the beach!
We arrived just as the sun was beginning to set, and unfortunately by the time we got to our beautiful resort it was already beginning to get dark. Most of the crew met for a cocktail at the bar, and then we enjoyed the huge buffet dinner spread, before calling it a night.
The next morning I set my alarm just in time to wake up for the sunrise – I was hoping for a beautiful pink sky, which I didn’t see, but it was nevertheless a great start to the day.
I lay out on my terrace, listening to the sound of the birds chirping and gentle waves crashing.
I was lucky enough to finally be rostered another flight to Mauritius! It had been over a year since I last visited and I was so happy to get the chance to re-visit the beautiful island I fell in love with last time.
The flight was nice and easy, busy but not too long. After around 6 hours we arrived in MRU just as the sun was setting. It was already dark by the time we arrived at the hotel but I could still see the pool and ocean glistening from the lobby!
The hotel does a great dinner buffet, so we sat down to some delicious Mauritian food and had a relaxing evening.
The hotel is actually more of a resort and some of the rooms are spread out pretty far, you can even get a lift on a golf buggy if the walk is too much for you!
My room had a beautiful view of the ocean and all the lovely palm trees. It was the best feeling waking up on the first day of my birthday month and being greeted by the sound of waves crashing and the breeze blowing through the trees!
