A week in Mauritius.

Mauritius, famous for its azure waters, is a popular holiday destination with its white beaches and luxury spas attracting tourists from across all continents. It clicks every check-box of a luxury beach holiday requirements list. Especially, for India where Mauritius is among the top Honeymoon destinations, there is a growing demand for a memorable honeymoon. However, Mauritius is not only for the rich and famous, we will see here a 7 day itinerary for luxury and budget honeymoon.

Let us start with a honeymoon plan which fits everyone’s budget – a budget 7 day holiday in Mauritius. Being honeymoon, we will want to avoid and B&B accommodations and public transport – hence you will have 1 car at your disposal for all days except Day 3 and 5 and all stays are at one hotel.

When planned more than 3 months in advance, you can pocket this trip at less than $999 (OR INR 65000) per couple (plus any supplementary adventure activities that you may want to take up at one of the islands) after you land in Mauritius. The flights plus visa are dependent on the season but will not be more than INR30000 if planned 3 month or more in advance. Breakfast and Dinner will be at Hotel every day

Day 1 – Arrival – Day at Leisure – Dinner at Hotel
Arrive in Mauritius, transfer to hotel and stay at Hotel Manisa / Pearl Beach Resort, Flic-en-Flac both are right across the beach and Flic en Flac is one of the most relaxed locations in Mauritius, far away from the hustle and bustle of Port Louis.

Day 2 – full day trip to Ile Aux Cerf Island
After breakfast, travel to Belle Mare beach to enjoy adventure activities like parasailing, undersea walk, waterfall visit or banana tube ride. After that, you will drive to Trou d'Eau Douce for a speedboat transfer to Ile aux Cerf, one of the most picturesque island in Mauritius. Spend some romantic time at the Island and capture lots of memories in your camera. Return to mainland by speedboat and transfer to the hotel. We suggest that you take a beach towel and an extra pair of clothes, swimwear, sunscreen and cap / hat if you do not want to get tanned face pictures on your honeymoon

Day 3 – personal time and relaxation at Hotel and beach
Its your honeymoon and whats better than a relaxing day with your loved one after a tiring full day trip. Ofcourse its your honeymoon and you need to spend some quality time together as well

Day 4 – South Island tour
After breakfast, leave for a trip to the Trau aux Cerfs, an extinct volcano. Post that visit Grand Bassein, a natural lake at the base of volcanic crater and a pilgrimage place for Hindus – its also called the Ganges of Mauritius - and Chamarel with its vibrant hues and waterfall. End your day at the city of Curepipe where you can pick up Ship souvenirs before returning to the Hotel

Day 5 – Day at leisure
Flic en Flac is one place where you would love to explore around with your partner. Have a sumptuous breakfast and book a spa at the hotel for a lazy afternoon – its available at all hotels in Mauritius. After that get in to your swim suits and step out for some fun time lazy time on the silver sands and glittering but clear waters on Flic En Flac. Its one time that you would want to live again after you are back from honeymoon. In the afternoon, romance yourself with a spa and in the evening you enjoy a candle light dinner at the hotel

Day 6 – North Island tour
After breakfast, drive to Port Louis, the capital city with its great French colonial buildings, the exciting Champ de mars racecourse, the exotic Caudan waterfront and visit the Citadel and its surrounding area.

Day 7 – departure
Post breakfast, leave for the airport with some amazing memories of Mauritius

While Luxury is very vaguely defined and can be limitless, we will limit ourselves to the upper class luxury and not at the level of the Tom Cruise or Khan’s nor the level of Ambani’s and Bezo’s of the world – for all you know they already have a few islands of their own and Mauritius is not going to be on t heir list.
Now if you want the 7 day itinerary for a ‘Luxury’ honeymoon, get ready to shell out upto $3000 (or INR 185000) per person
So what is different from what you get in the budget tour?
Well here’s the list
1.    Hotel - You get to experience luxury of a celebrity at hotels like Oberai Mauritius OR St Regis OR a Grand Villa with a private beach
2.    A suite room with personal pool / jacuzzi
3.    A Mercedes at your disposal for all days of your stay
4.    Champagne on arrival
5.    Luxurious Candle light dinner on the beach
6.    Sunset view from your room (Sunrise if you are on east coast)
7.    Private Beach for you to enjoy the crystal clear sea

While Day 1, 2, 4 and 6 remain the same, what changes is your experience on Day 3 and 5 – lets see how
Day 3 – Luxury Catamaran trip
While you are planning for some relaxed time with your partner, you get it on a private catamaran yacht after lunch in the middle of the ocean spending your time with the dolphins and enjoying beautiful sunset and no one else to disturb your

Day 5 – Trip to Ile des Deux Cocos
Enjoy a trip to Ile des Deux Cocos like your own private island for a day. It‘s an island of pure enjoyment of the highest standards with the snorkeling in the clear waters the icing. A day on the private paradise island of Ile des Deux Cocos, has been the highlight of many visitors’ stay in Mauritius and it is a visit not to be missed

So here you are, no matter what your budget, a honeymoon trip to Mauritius is one thing that you and your loved one will cherish forever.

And as I always say, cheers to a wonderful life.
