Mauritius is a golfer’s dream destination with an astonishingly high number of golf courses dotted across the island ideal for both amateurs and seasoned pros to enjoy. During our trip we tried and tested two championship courses on the island. With the stunning majestic Le Morne mountain as our backdrop we improved our golf technique with lessons at the superb 18-hole championship Paradis Golf course. Our skills were then tested on the island’s newest and only course on the north west coast, the Mont Choisy Le Golf course.
Whilst others choose to quad bike through picturesque sugar cane plantations and some took to the skies for a zip lining adventure we choose to zoom around the south west coast on a 1-hour Sea Kart tour. As we speed our way through tropical waters we were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of dolphins in the distance.
The warm, turquoise waters provide excellent conditions for water sports ranging from sailing, water skiing, windsurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and kite surfing. Exceptional PADI dive centres offering comprehensive diving programmes and expert advice.
Mauritius is full of diverse and spectacular landscapes and is ideal for island exploration whilst offering a great opportunity for some team bonding. On our trip we were put into teams, given a car and a map and encouraged to set out on an exploration of the island. It certainly made for a fun group bonding exercise as road signs aren’t always obvious on the island and it helped us to discover some amazing sights located off the beaten track. We soon discovered the most famous natural sights including the dormant Trou Aux Cerfs volcano which offers 360-degree panoramic views of Curepipe and the coastal plains.
We delved deep into the tea production process in Bois Cheri to enjoy a tasting session of black, coconut, exotic fruits, earl grey, vanilla and green tea before admiring the sacred Grand Bassin lake. We also enjoyed up close wildlife encounters with baby crocs and giant tortoises at La Vanille Nature Reserve.
Being away whisked by speedboat, out beyond the reef, for a sunset catamaran cruise was an ideal way for people to come together. It certainly had the wow factor and allowed for shared experiences and lasting memories.
For those that were not so keen on adrenaline activities our trip also provided the perfect opportunity to sample true island life and to experiment with exotic ingredients, spices and flavours in interactive cooking classes. A visit to the Rhumerie de Chamarel situated in the vicinity of the Coloured Earths allowed for the tasting of some of the finest rums around.
A bit of fun friendly competition helped to get everyone talking and at the evening beach party we competed to create the best cocktail professionally judged, with much amusement, by the hotel bar staff. The gala dinner and beach BBQ were a wonderful way to enable everyone to reconvene for nightly awards and to share their experiences of the day.
