Roy and I already knew we wanted to travel to a tropical and unique destination months before we booked our last holiday. We decided to go on an early Summer holiday in May this year and after researching some destinations and doubting between a couple of them, we decided that Mauritius was going to be our next destination.
It’s actually already been 3 weeks ago since we came back home, but the island is still on my mind. The island Mauritius is located in Africa and is described as a tropical and luxury destination. After two flights of both 6,5 hours and a 4 hours transfer on Dubai Airport, we arrived at Mauritius. Quickly in between: we flew with Emirates in their Airbus A380, seriously the best plane and airline I’ve ever travelled with! It was already sunny and pretty warm and we immediately felt we were somewhere tropical.

We were taken to a small bus – which really looked like how you would portrait a African bus – which drove us to the resort. Our resort, Sensimar Lagoon Mauritius, was just gorgeous. We were welcomed with a refreshing drink and everyone in the hotel was really polite. Not only upon arrival, but during the entire stay. We spent most of the time at the resort and went out twice, once by car (a post about that will follow soon) and once on a speedboat to watch dolphins and swim in the ocean. The island itself is weird and pretty at the same time. The urban areas are like Africa: not really modern and just how you expect Africa to be. The tropical woods, however, are just gorgeous, I’ve never seen such beautiful forest areas before.
I can tell you a lot more about the hotel, the island and the weather (the weather is weird; you can have sunshine and a lot of rain within 30 minutes), but I just want to share some photos with you. I didn’t make a lot of photos and some will follow in other posts, but I feel like they describe how the hotel area and the island were. Hope you like them..
What’s your Summer holiday destination this year?
