My own love affair with the Indian Ocean began many years ago and nothing melts my heart and stirs my soul more than being given the responsibility to arrange one of life’s memorable experiences in this very special part of the world.
And I am extremely proud of my track record.
Pristine palm-fringed white sandy beaches, sparkling crystal-clear turquoise waters, picturesque landscapes and year-round warm weather, Mauritius is simply a perfect destination for a relaxed wedding or honeymoon.
I have worked for many years with the wonderful people at Beachcomber and as the very first hotel company in Mauritius, they secured highly enviable beachside locations on the island.
Each of their eight properties offer luxurious accommodation options, award-winning à la carte dining, impeccable service and a dreamy setting ideal for all your romantic desires.
If tying the knot, then I work with a dedicated, creative and forward-thinking planner within resort to create an extraordinary wedding, ensuring that your special day will be stress-free from start to finish.
A selection of packages are available providing various inclusions and extra touches along with all the essentials for a Mauritius wedding, including legal procedures, fees and documentation.
There is an abundance of beautiful tropical setting options, but in my experience, nothing comes close to a beachside wedding in the late afternoon sunshine whether it’s a sophisticated wedding ceremony or simple vows taken barefoot on the beach.
Oh, and of course, I will also be able to organise everything as economically as possible for those invited loved ones you wish to share your day with. If, like many, your wedding itself is happening closer to home then please know that the foundation of my business is built on successfully organising many honeymoon experiences, especially to this wonderful destination. Unique to Beachcomber, honeymooners can choose from five very different “experiences” at each of the eight hotels:
a day’s mini-moke hire
a horseback ride around Le Morne
parasailing over Grand Baie for the more adventurous
a full day boat trip with lunch
a romantic sundowner cruise
If heavy duty relaxation or a post-wedding detox is more your order of the day, then perhaps a couple’s massage at a luxury spa or discovering the art of wellness with a sunrise yoga session on the beach appeals.
At Holidaysplease, we also have a fabulous gift list service, where friends and family can contribute towards honeymoon activities. One that unsurprisingly gets snapped up swiftly is the idyllic private candlelit dining experience under the stars in a secluded beachside setting surrounded by flame torches and a personal waiter. Just a tad romantic!
There are also options to go all-inclusive with honeymoon packages offering a broad choice of high-quality cuisine and a plethora of fantastic water and land sports all delivered with impeccable service.
Mauritian cuisine provides a real treat for taste buds with a unique blend of Creole, French, Chinese and Indian flavours and its diverse landscapes provide opportunity for plenty of exploration adventures whilst the warm Indian Ocean currents ensure a location excellent for paddle boarding and diving.
If you’re ready to say ‘I do’ on a powder-white beach overlooking sapphire waters, then give me a call and I’ll arrange every detail (spouse not included).
