Summer Holiday: Mauritius 2014

12 February 2014|

It may have been a whole month ago already, but on many a day I find myself dreaming of sandy beaches, crystal clear oceans, burning sunshine, buffet meals, ice cold cocktails and sweet memories with our little family of 3,5 and I can only smile at the thought of our recent summer holiday in Mauritius. 

Last year, MC and I made the impulsive decision to book a summer holiday for the “3 of us”. Little did we know that this would be our first and last holiday, as just the 3 of us (and technically our little baby bump was with us anyway!) But looking back, a weeks break with our little SJ is exactly what we all needed – a long and hectic year of work, social engagements, moving and always being around others. 

Mauritius is a quick 4 hour plane ride from Durban and there are so many beautiful hotels and resorts to choose from. Obviously traveling with SJ meant a more child-friendly and less luxurious approach and Long Beach turned out to be a great choice – SJ enjoyed their buffet meals every day, an unbelievable kids club and trustworthy babysitters as well as a flat and shallow beach and heated, shallow pool to enjoy in the sun. 

A fun but laid back and very easy travel destination, as well as pure paradise for these parents – Mauritius, we will be back!

  1. What a precious family and beautiful pictures. It's always amazing how things work out in a way you wouldn't expect. The perfect last trip as a family of 3 and now you can take many more with your sweet addition. Have a great day friend.
