Mauritius’ Top Features For Weddings And Honeymoons By Bella Shearer

With its miles of white sand beaches, surrounded by lush forests and dramatic volcanic peaks, Mauritius is made for romance. From the first swim-up pools on the island to sea-urchin tasting at sunset, Mauritius has a host of new and exciting wedding and honeymoon experiences for 2018….

Experience the new swim-up rooms at the Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa

From January 2018, the Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa will introduce its new adult-only wing, the Victoria for Two. The new accommodation will consist of 40 two-person terraced rooms, each of which will open up to the marine park and private beach. 17 of these are the first swim-up rooms to launch on the island, all of which will be sea-facing and open up onto the swimming pool. The wing will also see the opening of a brand new restaurant, the Moris Beef, boasting spectacular sunset views and a new swim-up pool bar, the Nautil Café. The new concept has been designed to meet the needs of a different type of clientele – the couple travelling child-free and desiring quiet, comfort and a breadth of facilities, perfect for a honeymoon getaway.

Experience the new sea urchin tasting experience at LUX* Le Morne

Located on the southwestern tip of the island in Le Morne, the five-star LUX* Le Morne is set on one of the island’s most attractive lagoon-facing spots. Guests to this UNESCO protected part of the island are invited to relax under the palm trees by the sea and explore the Black River Gorges National Park. Newlyweds are guaranteed to enjoy the culinary delights of the hotel, some of which include beach barbecues and authentic island cuisine, as well as the new ‘‘Sea Urchin Tasting At Sunset’’ experience. Just before sundown, the resident guest experience manager and Sea Urchin Ma, Vik Chutter, heads into the lagoon in search of fresh sea urchins, one of Mauritius’ most special delicacies. The sea urchins are then cut, cleaned and served fresh to guests on the beach during sunset.

The five-star Four Seasons in Anahita have launched their newest wedding package, where couples desiring a quiet wedding experience are invited to the new wedding venue on the islet of the Quiet Beach.
