Janet, our tours consultant, recently had the opportunity to visit Mauritius courtesy of Air Mauritius. These are her comments on her experience.
Mauritius, is an approx. 4hrs flight from Nairobi. The island boasts of its multicultural people, history, beaches, variety of hotels and quality cuisine.
We visited more than 10 hotels – Westin Turtlebay Hotel, Aanari Hotel, Anelia Resort, Leora Beach, La Belle Crique, Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, Le Victoria, Le Meridian, Le Recif Attitude, Trou aux Biches, Seapoint Boutique Hotel, Domaine Les Alizees, Le Mauricia, Zilwa Attitude and Le Ravenala Attitude.
Apart from the beach hotels, we also visited some of the tourist attractions – City Tour of Port Louis, Pamplemousses Gardens, Rum distillery, Chamarel 7 colored earth, Grand Bassin sacred lake, and also had a chance to do some shopping.
Air Mauritius (in conjunction with Kenya Airways) operates direct flights to Port Louis on Tuesdays and Fridays only. There is a wide range of Hotels and apartments to choose from – to suit all budgets. They also have quality spas and kids clubs. The hotel prices offer excellent value for money.
A great destination for couples and families. No visa required for Kenya passport holders.
