I recently got back from my trip to Mauritius Island and it was absolutely spectacular! It’s a fabulous country if you want to be spoilt in a 5-star luxury resort on your Mauritius honeymoon with spas, pools, amazing friendly staff and locals, or if you want to try something new and have an adventure.


It’s generally a very long flight from most parts of the world, but it’s worth it if you can afford it!
