Mauritius is a beautiful island nation about 870 kms east of Madagascar. Exciting as always, Mauritius will enchant you and uplift your soul. Romance is always in the air & the contrast of colors, cultures & tastes makes for an unforgettable holiday experience. Although English is the official language, French and Creole are commonly used.
We at Ezeego1 were fortunate enough to seek first hand information from 2 of our colleagues who went to celebrate their honeymoon at Mauritius. Â Weâ€™ve interviewed them about their experience and hereâ€™s what they had to say
Q: – There are plenty of holiday destinations that are ideal for a honeymoon, but why Mauritius?
A â€“ Well, thatâ€™s a tough one to answer. To begin with Mauritius is a romantic place. Itsâ€™ much more than just beaches, you get a hill station sort of an experience, especially when at the Casela Bird Park. This experience is unique and in our honest opinion many miss out on this place as theyâ€™re unaware of it whilst holidaying in Mauritius.
Q: – Where did you stay? Did you book a hotel or did you have some relatives in Mauritius?
A â€“ How, I wish we had some relatives in Mauritius as that wouldâ€™ve allowed us to have a lengthier holiday Coming back to the hotel, we went in for a package that was available on Ezeego1.com and chose Pearle beach resort which is a 4 Star Hotel. There were plenty of hotels to choose from, but we decided to go in for Pearle beach resort simply because shopping points & pubs were just around the hotel which resulted in an electric atmosphere. In furtherance to this, we were able to catch a glimpse of the beach from practically every angle of this hotel.
Q: – What was the food like? Was it spicy, was it bland?
A â€“ Well, Indian food was available at the Pearle Beach Resort; we simply had to let them know in the morning that weâ€™d prefer Indian food for that day. On the other hand, their food isnâ€™t spicy, we found it bland & Rice is the staple food in Mauritius. Â In fact when we visited one of the local hotels, we were told by the owner that earlier there was a ban on the import of spices & the removal of this ban was only done recently.
Q: – What was the climate in Mauritius like? When would you recommend others to visit the place?
A â€“ To be honest, the climate in Mauritius was pleasant. It wasnâ€™t humid at all. In fact, we witnessed a light shower as well, but that didnâ€™t really affect our vacation. In fact, we also received some information from the locals stating that the chances of Mauritius being hit by a Tsunami are minimal as the country is surrounded by corals that get filled and doesnâ€™t allow the wave to hit the country.
Q â€“ Is Mauritius a shopping zone? Whatâ€™s worth getting from there?
A â€“ Not at all, Iâ€™d like to point out that everything that was available in Mauritius was available in India and thereâ€™s nothing in particular to go crazy about.
Things that are worth buying here are collectables and souvenirs, a souvenir of the Dodo bird is one must have & more shopped for item as itâ€™s the National Bird of Mauritius; species of which doesnâ€™t exist anymore.
Q â€“ We know the official currency of Mauritius is the Mauritian Rupee, what other currency is readily accepted there?
A â€“ Yes, the Mauritian rupee of course is the official currency. Other than that, for tourists specially, the Euro is readily accepted and is one that I recommend you have in your possession if not the Mauritian rupee.
So people! To conclude; our colleagues would definitely recommend Mauritius as an ideal holiday destination and the most apt destination for one to spend their honeymoon, after all its love thatâ€™s in the air. You can go through some excellent Mauritius Holiday Packages here.
