The Ultimate Guide To Mauritius – Paradise Awaits

I often looked at the dot of an island called Mauritius but the even bigger dot called Madagascar and thought it could only be experienced in the movies. I not only made it to Mauritius but fell deeply inlove. Mauritius is paradise and here is how I saw the island. I flew from Ottawa, Canada to London along to Savanne Mauritius ( Depending on where you are located, flights may be a little easier.

Clear Blue Water with exotic fish everywhere and fresh coral. 😍😍😍😍

I know what you are thinking and no this is not my pool but this gorgeous turquoise water is the in the Indian Ocean. Warm, beautiful and will literally take your breathe away. The first stop on my list was the Outrigger Mauritius (South Of The Island)

Only a short 40 min scenic drive with amazing views. We were welcomed with a delicious local cane juice beverage and a papaya cookie #nomnom. We were then escorted in true Mauritian style to our ocean front accommodation. The water and view was something that will stay with us forever. If that wasn’t enough we walked over to one of the beautiful restaurants onsite to experience a world class buffet of creole and western dishes. The flavour and tastes were unbelievable.

Mauritius Overview

Though sedate in nature, this mountainous island in the Indian Ocean offers some of the most adventurous activities, as well as stunning beaches for pure relaxation. It also is home to one of the most exceptional Mauritius resorts. Indeed, our property is known among the best Mauritius holiday and honeymoon resorts, though its tranquil setting, luxurious amenities, lively entertainment, and astounding cuisine appeals to anyone, any time of the year. When looking for Mauritius beach hotels, look no further. Enjoy the resort experience of a lifetime! (I couldn’t agree more)

Nature Walks and Hidden Gems
Taking a Stroll with Mom
Mauritius is known for its gorgeous ocean and Aquatic Life. We found a crazy amount of fresh coral and tropical fish.

The only question is do you love cuisine, swimming, snorkelling, relaxing or the adventure of this island? What I liked most about the Outrigger resort was its independent character filled with amazing people who go above and beyond. I truly believe in the magic of travel and I wanted to get know more about the people of Mauritius. The concierge arranged transport to our next location which was the Intercontinental Mauriti us Resort Balaclava Fort about 1.5hrs North.

Paradise Of North Mauritius

Welcome to the Intercontinental Mauritius Balaclava, This gorgeous property is located in the North on one of the most pristine stretches of beach overlooking Balaclava, Mauritius. We were welcomed by the sounds of beautiful birds on the property. The staff went out of their way to show us around. We decided to try all the award winning SPA Intercontinental for a 90 min HOT oil massage and its exactly what we needed. Don’t miss the traditional Mauritian BBQ evening for a Saga Dance lesson ocean front. The fireworks display was truly impressive.

  • We recently started a family recipe book that highlights our absolute favourite dishes. The kids think this is the best thing ever and are totally into documenting everything. We basically started a tradition and this makes me sooo happy ❤️ Life’s small gains are huge #wins @goop #ingoophealth
  • Flowers from my baby girl is the sweetest way to wake up on a Saturday morning. I think I need to do an entire segment on mother’s and daughters. Love each of my kids alike with all my heart but there is something unique when a daughter is growing and learning from her mama ⭐️🌸
  • Walking into the weekend with an enthusiastic stride 🌸🌸🌸🌸 I’m on the hunt for Cherry Blossoms to go with my outfit. If you see any in your city, let me know.

  • Following my appointment and GLO peel last week at @jagcosmetics, my skin was feeling amazing - smooth and glowing! (What a treat!)⭐️We went home with a number of @vivierskin products, including the full GrenzCine line, which includes the GrenzCine Serum, Eye, Neck, and Body. The line is great for anti-aging, skin rejuvenation ,but also a perfect line for post-treatment that’s easy to do at home. It helps boost the hydration of the skin and keeps it looking luminous. My skin has definitely managed to maintain it's glow and I'm loving the anti-aging effects I'm seeing already. Excited to see my continued results with these products! Promise to keep you posted! #vivierskin #thebeautyofresults #ad
