Discover the alluring “Joie de vivre” on a Mauritius holiday

13th August 2014

Whisked away on her non-stop Air Mauritius flight from Perth, Travel Associates consultant Bronwyn Kazmer, soon found herself relaxing in the idyllic setting of the world-class Club Med d’ Albion. With six blissful days to spend at this beachside oasis on the pristine and secluded beaches of Mauritius, Bronwyn gleefully basked in the warm ambiance of the tropical island country, getting to know its diverse landscape and its welcoming people. When asked to describe Mauritius, Bronwyn quickly responded with three simple descriptions, “relaxing and picturesque with stunning sunsets.” For a small country, Mauritius certainly has a lot to offer and at the top of its list is its stunning natural beauty.


From the romantic beaches and hidden creeks to the rolling hills and mountains of the interior, Mauritius is a study in enchanting contrast. Another island favourite and popular port city since the early 1600s, Port Louis is the nation’s capital and offers a lovely harbour cityscape with a great mix of festivals, history and culture. Upon arrival in Mauritius, Bronwyn was off to Club Med’s La Plantation d’ Albion. Located less than an hour’s drive south of Port Louis and the international airport, this striking resorton the Indian Ocean coast was the perfect place in which to relax and unwind. The incomparable Club Med hospitality and first class facilities were yet another reminder of the royal treatment that can be expected when staying here. “Club Med resorts are fully inclusive, and of high quality,” said Bronwyn. Happy to extoll the virtues of this alluring resort, Bronwyn went on to say, “the resort is very family friendly with Kids clubs too! Happy days!The whole Club Med experience was fun, theatre shows every night, dancing without having to leave the resort, not having to pay for drinks. We spent the days relaxing in the sun and could party at night!” Luxuriously appointed suites and rooms are just steps from the beach where plush daybeds and lounge chairs can be positioned for the perfect ocean view. Just some of the many activities on hand are diving and snorkelling, sailing tours, golf, tennis and even a flying trapeze for both beginners and the more advanced. If it’s a leisurely swim you’re after, head to the stunning swimming pool. This freshwater pool offers spectacular lagoon views and offers a beautiful tropical setting in which to relax with a drink and a good book. As Bronwyn found, Mauritius is no ordinary destination, and La Plantation d’ Albion Club Med is certainly more than just your standard accommodation. It’s a complete holiday experience, and one that Bronwyn will happily recommend to her valued clients.
