Arrived in Mauritius – Discovering a Tropical Paradise

Belle Mare Plage Restaurant

After two 12 hour flights, Athena and I have arrived in Mauritius for a family vacation. We were exhausted yesterday but managed to take a few photos and have a nice dinner before heading to bed. Our schedule is packed full of family fun adventures and unique experiences so stay tuned for 9 days in a tropical Paradise.Β 

While we’re here, we’ll be staying at Constance Belle Mare Plage andΒ Constance Le Prince. We didn’t get to explore the first property too much yesterday but have a full day tomorrow to stay, play, and relax. We did take a few photos of the pools here before it got too late.

Here is the main pool from the reception area. One of my favorite views at any hotel is when the ocean sits just in front of the pool and they are the same color. Stunning!

We haven’t gone in for a dip yet but we’ll be sure to make our way in today. It’s going to be a hot, sunny day so we’ll have plenty of opportunity.

At night, we enjoyed La Citronnelle’s buffet and a walk around the grounds before climbing into our king-sized bed and drifting off to dreamland.

The lineup for this trip includes a photo safari, petting zoo, submarine, catamaran, crocodile park, beaches, pools, and a few surprises. Athena is already asking if she can pet lions and swim with dolphins. I’m going to have my hands full with this adventurous child.

      • I must say I have never been but after seeing the wonderful information you are sharing I can definitely say it is on my list of places to see. At this point I can’t even seem to make it to my house in Florida for a little fun in the sun 😦


  1. Been to over 70 countries.. Mauritius is one of my favorite for the attention to service and the excellence in accommodations. While the General populations has command of 3 languages (French, English and Hindi) most in the tourism industry speak a fourth as well. The Model Ship Building craftsmen are exceptional and when I was there I found great bargains on Cashmere garments. The Crab is usually caught that day and is delicious. Never liked in USA again after that. I stayed at the Le Prince Maurice for vaca.. and Labordonaise for business, Staff is always friendly, helpful and courteous. I am certain you will enjoy. HAVE FUN!

  5. Lovely! We’ve never been to Mauritius and we’ve haven’t stayed on anything classier than a backpacker’s inn or bread and breakfast! Hehehe! Hopefully one day, we can try staying in a first class resort like this. πŸ™‚
