Welcome to paradise. If you have been dreaming of dipping your toes in warm turquoise blue seas and basking in the sun on lush white sand beaches, I have found the place for you.
Part of the Mascarene Islands, which consist of Réunion, Mauritius, and Rodrigues, Mauritius has a one of a kind culture. Formally a French and British settlement, this gorgeous country is now a fascinating mash-up of Indian, Chinese, African, Arabic, and European culture.
Floating in the Indian Ocean 2,000 kilometers (1,200 mi) off the southeastern coast of Africa, the islands deserves a place on every beach lover’s travel bucket list.
You can live it up in ultra-luxe five-star resorts or take in the untouched nature of places like the Frédérica Nature Reserve. I had the opportunity to relax, and take some much-needed time to unwind at both the Constance Belle Mare Plage Hotel and the Constance Prince Maurice Hotel.
Helpful Tip: If you are looking for a pampered experience, you’ve got to check out the Constance Prince Maurice Hotel.
