A Week in Paradise

Monday, 26 December 2011

Mauritius is beautiful - plain and simple.

The colour of the water, the beautiful beaches, the charming people and their hospitality made it the perfect holiday destination.  As I mentioned before, Joe & I were really looking to relax this trip.  We've had a busy year full of ups, downs and travels so we were ready to head somewhere where we didn't have to do anything but had the option to do something in case we got bored.

We stayed at Hotel 20 Degres Sud and it was PERFECT.  Again, we chose something on the smaller side as the last thing we wanted was a giant resort with music blasting and big buffet meals.  20 Degres Sud has 34 uniquely decorated rooms and it was beautiful, tranquil and subtly luxurious.  It was so great that we didn't even really want to leave --- so we hardly did and we don't regret it.  Our days were filled with beach, books, drinks & food and instead of describing, I'll let you see for yourself.
