If you have been dreaming of going to an island paradise, you may be interested to know that a new hotel has opened in Mauritius.
An island vacation means mornings lounging on palm-fringed beaches, afternoons swimming in the sea and nights dining by candlelight in secluded restaurants, and if you’re looking for all of these things, then the new Trou Aux Biches Hotel & Spa in the island could be the place to stay
Located in the northwest of the island, it is close to the traditional Mauritian village of Grand Baie, a perfect place to soak up the local atmosphere and immerse yourself in the island’s culture.
But if you want to get away from it all, at Trou Aux Biches you can stay in private wooden chalets or opt for large two- and three-bedroom villas. As the rooms are located directly on the beach, you are never too far from the silky soft sands.
In fact, this is a great destination for couples in love to take long romantic walks along the beach holding hands and sitting under the palm trees gazing into each other’s eyes, which is why Mauritius has gained popularity among grooms and honeymooners.
Here, they can take a break from the normal stress of wedding preparation and just enjoy being alone. They can relax on the island’s tranquil beaches or take a dip in the sea with its vast marine life.
If you want to see more of Mauritius’s wildlife, there are a number of diving and snorkelling trips available, where you can swim with moray eels and giant tortoises, as well as a great selection of multi-coloured fish. There are even night diving and honeymoon excursions for those looking for a new experience by diving into its crystal clear waters.
Alternatively, you can opt for an underwater safari, which will probably be a trip you haven’t done before. Or you can try some of the other water sports activities like jet skiing and jet skiing.
If you’re interested in getting active on your Mauritius vacation, you may want to explore the tropical gardens surrounding Trou Aux Biches. Or, for those looking for something further afield, they can walk through the island’s lush forests filled with fruit trees and brightly colored flowers.
Labourdonnais Orchards is a popular destination and visitors can hike or try mountain biking through the area to get a closer look at the Mauritian greenery. Or, you can travel further inland to see its changing landscape. Here, you can see extinct volcanoes, natural lakes, and national parks.
In the evening, you can indulge in special dining experiences when you head to one of the hotel’s six restaurants: Blue Ginger, La Caravelle, L’Oasis, Il Corallo, Le Deck and Mahiya. Couples can have quiet, romantic meals eating dishes from all over the world, such as the Mediterranean and Asia. Or, if you want to try Mauritian food, you can sample some of the island’s traditional cuisine.
There is also plenty to do in Mauritius for families and Trou Aux Biches is ideal for children and groups of more than two people. You may want to stay in some of their larger villas, which come with their own pools, and enjoy use of their kids’ and teens’ clubs.
At Trou Aux Biches, there’s something for everyone to enjoy, whether you’re planning to propose, just got married, or want to bring your kids to enjoy this stunning island paradise.
