Which Island in the Indian Ocean?

Jump to last reply

We are trying to decide between ending our Botswana/South Africa vacation with a 4 or 5 night stay in Seychelles or Mauritius. I have read previous posts, and get the impression that Mauritius is more commercialized than Seychelles. Is this true?
We are looking for an intimate hotel on a fabulous beach that offers good snorkeling and scuba diving. Hotels that appeal to us (at least based on their websites) are: The Oberoi (Mauritius), The Royal Palm Hotel (Mauritius) and Lemuria (Seychelles). If you have stayed at any of these resorts, and can comment on your experience, that would be helpful. The rest of our holiday will include Mombo and Singita, so we are looking for the same level of luxury on one of the islands.

Thanks for your help.
