Traveller Tales From Mauritius

I along with my wife went on this honeymoon trip to Mauritius through Thrillophilia. This was the first time we went on an organized trip and it turned out to be the best. Very nice arrangements done for our rooms and food. The package was very decent I should say with all the things included. I and my wife did parasailing at Belle Mare and undersea walking which was really fun. The ocean life was really beautiful; I have never seen marine life so close. Our journey to Plaine Champagne to Chamarel village was another best memory from the trip. But the best thing from the whole trip was when we visited the Chamare, there we could see the 7 coloured earth which is said to be formed by volcanic rocks. It was such a beautiful sight, we clicked many pictures there. Each of the days had something special for us, our guide too was a very generous man. He even helped us with the romantic dinner arrangement at Chez Tino Restaurant. It was a good vacation for both of us.

We went to Mauritius for honeymoon the next month after our wedding and that was in August 2016. Mauritius is a very peaceful place to relax while the beautiful nature and quiet weather would give you the best ambiance. It is always good to go through some travel agency after checking the packages well and we got a good Mauritius honeymoon package for 10 days and we had cover almost all the attractions there. There were a lot of spots to go, sit and relax for the whole day as well as to participate in many water based activities like boating, swimming and parasailing. Casela Park and Belle Mare were the main centres for parasailing and similar activities and also for quad biking and buggy riding and the bird park was so beautiful. Everything was included in the package like good hotel rooms, transportation, meals except lunch and so many activities.

The package was also very decent with everything included as they have mentioned. There are quite a lot of places with beaches and water activities. We did some water activities like underwater sea walk, scuba diving, and snorkeling. My wife did some shopping at the duty-free shops in Floreal. Our afternoon drive to nature park of Black River & Plaine Champagne was another best part of the trip. We saw the usual seven coloured earth when we visited the Chamarel, never saw anything so beautiful and unique before. We also explored the oldest horse-racing club, Champ de Mars another beauty here. Food and accommodation during the trip were really great. Thanks to the team for making our honeymoon a memorable one.

It was a very beautifully organized trip of us to Mauritius and we have selected one of the best Mauritius honeymoon packages with the help of Thrillophilia. Seven day trip made us enjoy the island completely. The tour included cultural and heritage sightseeing tour and also we went to climb the Black River Gorges followed by a visit to Chamarel as well as some of the nearby attractions. The lovely natives preserve the villages so beautifully. Quad Biking and trekking were the most interesting activities we have done and there was a candle light dinner at the resort we stayed on the previous day of our departure. It was so romantic and the candles were spreading a magical aroma. The trip gave us so many wonderful moments to be cherished.

Wonderful trip with lots of fun and adventure. We went in April 2016 just 5 days after our wedding. The package had everything that we were looking for. Right from our arrival at the airport, we received great hospitality from the people. I really loved the way they have decorated the room, it was really beautiful. We covered few of the famous places like Curepipe and Trou d’Eau douce, here we went for a speedboat ride, and another couple joined us here. We had so much fun together. We also did banana boat, ride, snorkeling, and parasailing. It was really good. Would definitely suggest this package to first-time honeymooners, Thrillophilia did some good work.

It is a paradise for beachgoers and sea lovers and honeymoon trips are the most sold packages in Mauritius I guess. We have seen a lot of couples taking photos on the beaches and resorts. The stay was awesome at a seafront resort with wonderful views of the ocean. Food was good especially seafood varieties. Locals were friendly and tour guide was really helpful. We got all that was promised in itinerary and the arrangements done by the organizers were amusing.

Our honeymoon tour of Mauritius was filled with so many water-based activities and sightseeing. All of them made us feel enthusiastic and urge to do more. It was less crowded when we visited except some pubs and casinos opened till late night. Drinks and food were available in plenty everywhere, basically sea food items. We stayed in a perfectly decorated room and of course the candle light dinner at the resort was fantastic.

Mauritius honeymoon tour was a remarkable experience for us and we did the trip in June.. The package included many water sports and adventure activities; both of us liked parasailing and diving very much. Ile Aux Cerfs was an astonishing beauty with huge green vegetation and perfectly preserved white sandy beaches. The seven coloured earth and the high falling waterfall in Chamarel were an unbelievable sight.

Nice package with 6 days’ proper planning and experienced driver and guide. Inclusions in the package were really good and the places we visited were truly amazing. I liked Chamarel and the seven colours of soil mixed at one point. Wonderful days for me and my wife. The roads were crowded and there were many shopping options in Mauritius. It is a happy and beautiful place for vacation.
