A contrast of influences it is, from the gourmet cuisine to the colourful attitude of her people, Mauritius really is a unique destination.


If you’re a beauty queen or an Ipod junkie you will need to know that the electricity runs on 220 volts with 50 cycles. The power points have 2 round sockets or 3 flat prongs, ask your hotel for a converter.


What to do in paradise

Oh lets say… get married? It’s romantic, passionate, mystical, magical and memorable, an experience engraved in your mind forever. Or, if you’re a guest you can enjoy a wide range of water sports, kayak through the reefs or catch your dinner with some deep sea fishing. The ladies can be pampered at the many day spas, whilst the gentlemen can tee off at one of the many championship golf greens. Of course the beaches are at your leisure, turquoise water tickles the powdery white sands of the shore and being surrounded by a coral reef it’s safe to frolic in the water all day long (just slap on the sunscreen!)
