    • Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport SLEEP OVER

      Mauritius Mar 24, 2016 at 5:16 AM

      Hi everyone.

      I am flying in to Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport from Singapore in the evening and fly off again the following morning to Reunion.

      Being a cheapskate, my question is "Can I stay on air side overnight?" If not, how about on land side?

      I will have my onward boarding pass for the Mauritius-reunion leg when departing from Singapore.

      Thanks in advance

      Hello, I'm looking for a venue place (NOT a hotel facility) for a Hindu wedding preferably in the North of the island (250 guests / 3 days). It should have a beach access, decoration and catering service. If you're aware of another venue place (even without a beach access) around the island, please feel free to share the info.

      Best regards, Scarlettt_O

    • Advice on which area to stay in

      Mauritius Apr 23, 2015 at 2:33 AM

      Hi all,
      I am currently planning a trip to Mauritius in November together with my girlfriend and I would appreciate some advice as to which area to stay in. We are primarily looking for a relax-holiday with the odd side-trip to Port Louis and some natural highlights (Black River, Ile aux Cerfs).
      I'm currently considering breaking up our 2 week holiday into 2 parts, spending a week in one area of the island and a week in another one. I am thinking about 1) Flic-en-flac/Wolmar area, 2) Grand Baie or Trou aux Biches and 3) Belle Mare / Trou d'eau douce area.

      Basically I would like to spend one week in an area with some more 'action', where we would have the opportunity to eat out every night (rather than in the hotel restaurant(s)) and sample some local cuisine; then we'd spend one week in a quieter area in a resort just to relax.

      So now my question is: does any area in Mauritius offer the combination of a nice beach with some options to eat out along the beachfront? Any particular resort that would qualify? Is wind something that I should take into account while choosing an area to stay in November?

      Many thanks for your help!
