Honeymoon in October

Jump to last reply

I am trying to find a good place for a Honeymoon in October and heard that Mauritius is very beautiful at this time of year. I would appreciate any tips or advice on Hotels etc.
Many Thanks

    My only experience of Mauritius was our honeymoon at Le Tousserok, which I can highly recommend. Amongst other attractions it has its own private island and most watersports are free. It's a great place to relax. You can hire a taxi for a day at a reasonable rate to go to Port Louis including the market, the Pampamous gardends (sic) and other attractions. Tousserok is on the east of the island, about a 45 minute taxi ride from the airport.

    Dear William

    We spent the last 10 days of our honeymoon in Le Touessrok (October / November). It is a perfect time to go to Mauritius. We were not too impressed by the hotel though. It was a little too 'in your face' for us - down to having your sunglasses cleaned on the some. Some people love that sort of thing, but I would prefer to have been left alone.

    We visited some other excellent hotels on the island - La Residence, Paradise Cove & Royal Palm. Less impressed with Saint Geran (same reasons as Le Touessrok).

    It's entirely a matter of personal taste - we had just spent a couple of weeks on safari in Zambia and were very sorry that we did not spend our entire honeymoon there. On the plus side - the two islands off Le Touessrok are a big plus (one private, the other, Ile aux Cerfs, for watersports). There are a couple of excellent restaurants there (the French & Italian ones), but we did not rate the half-board restaurant that highly (except for breakfast). The beaches at Le Touessrok are, in my opinion, the best in Mauritius. Most of the other hotels have much narrower strips of sand, Le Touessrok has a range of wide beaches surrounding the hotel.

    Our big gripe with Le Touessrok was that it was too big (about 200 rooms) - arguably something that we should have taken into account before we booked it - but I had read such excellent things about it that I overlooked its size. They are planning on building some new rooms - not sure when though.

    Bear in mind as well that it does not have a gym etc. The rooms are tired compared with hotels like The Residence and the Royal Palm - the bathrooms in particular are unimpressive.

    Sorry to be so negative, some people love Le Touessrok (see previous message). If you have any specific questions - feel free to e-mail me directly.

    Enjoy - whatever hotel you choose.

    Anna
