Travel Counsellors to Mauritius

Trevor Smith on 20 September 2008
My 'working' holiday to Mauritius was a Travel Counsellors Incentive Educational that we, that’s myself and twenty other colleagues, had won earlier in the year as part of a team building and sales competition between the one thousand Travel Counsellors from the eight countries around the world. We enjoyed our direct flight to Mauritius with AIR MAURITIUS and were greeted by our hosts and escorted to our first hotel in Mauritius – staying in two different hotels during our stay and visiting a further fourteen hotels, covering the North West, North East, West, East and Southern parts of the Island.

We were welcomed; as all guests at all hotels are, with a refreshing flannel as well as a tropical cocktail to make us feel very special in the Indian Ocean and Mauritius.

We visited so many great hotels, from three to five star luxury, to get ideas for all types of holidays – from couples, friends and families, as well as requirements for honeymoon and wedding packages.

All the hotels that we visited had different styles and standards for the various requirements of so many discerning guests. I have my own preferences now for some and know that I can match everyone's requirements for a holiday to Mauritius.

There is so much on offer for a holiday to the Indian Ocean and Mauritius: from Golf & Spa Resorts to kids clubs and special occasions like honeymoons, anniversaries and of course the complete wedding package tailored made to each and every special couple. Many hotels only offer one wedding per day as a standard maximum so every bride & groom can experience that extra special touch and to made to feel so special on the very special occasion.

Whilst here I have experienced fine cuisine from around the world at all the hotels with a choice of between three and nine restaurants depending on the hotel of your choice. There is so much variety with seafood playing a large part at all the hotels, and then other restaurants offering, Indian, Chinese, Italian and also traditional A La Carte menus at all.

There were lots of water sports, land sports, golf, beach volleyball, and of course the many infinity swimming pools at many of the hotels. I was spoilt for choice! Large swimming pools, sometimes for adults only, give all the hotels a great sense of calmness and tranquillity as well as a sense of purpose for the overall ambience of the hotels with Feng Sui playing a role in some of the hotels that we visited.

That very special meal for a wedding couple, right through to the beach BBQ for a group of friends or even perhaps a group of work colleagues for a conference are all on offer to ensure that you return back home with many happy memories of your visit to Mauritius.

After a fantastic time here in this paradise land I am now able to help my clients even more now with some great choices of hotels to suit any requirements with a far greater understanding of Mauritius, its culture, the people, the hotels and the distances involved for various visits. Whilst here I enjoyed visiting Grand Bay, Port Louis and its market and the famous Pamplemousses Gardens where I had a peaceful day and was able to see the collection of exotic tropical trees and vegetation.

I would certainly love to return here one day.
