Arriving into Mauritius after another travel day we checked into the Four Seasons, which lets be honest needs no introduction, this place is a different level.
ANOTHER AMAZING SUNSET
As far as I am concerned, only the Maldives can compete with the resorts of Mauritius and this place had pretty much everything.
WHERE IS MAURITIUS?
The weather today was pretty average which is expected in the middle of the Indian ocean at this time of year so the rest of the day was spent chilling, eating and watching the most incredible sunset. No surprise there!
THE FOUR SEASONS
As the weather was too rough to go diving it was spent checking out the facilities which are like nothing I have ever seen. The resort is so big that you are given bikes at check in to get around.
There are a choice of 4 restaurants offering everything from small snacks, Italian, French and Asian food. There are also special events held where you can experience Mauritian food and a BBQ night. Each restaurant offers a unique dining experience so whether you prefer to look out at the sea while you eat a steak or be poolside with a rack of ribs you will not be short of options.
There are several choices when it comes to beaches. Have a family or fancy some watersports then head to the beach at the boat house. Want a sit in peace and quiet then walk 2 minutes to the beach looking out at the mangroves or if you prefer an exclusive beach then you have access to Ile Aux Cerfs across the bay.
Other facilities include, watersports and diving centre, a spa, golf course, tennis courts young adults centre, cookery school, kids school, shops and more bars than you could wish to visit.
I have heard a lot about Mauritian cuisine and that any opportunity to cook has to be taken! Mauritian food is a blend of Chinese, Indian and European not to mention the French influence is becoming stronger and stronger. Now if there was ever a perfect mix then that would be it.
We all love our light curries, like Thai so you could imagine how happy we were when the chef told us we would be cooking chicken and prawn curry, perfect!
Myself, mum and dad have booked into play golf tomorrow
