In December 2017 Veranda & Heritage Resorts in cooperation with Air Mauritius invited 8 top travel agents on a trip to Mauritius to experience our resorts and the multiple activities both VLH brands has to offer. First visit on the program was the charming and newly renovated Adults Only boutique Hotel Veranda Paul & Virginie, after the long flight and the transfer, we enjoyed the breakfast and the neck and shoulder massage in the Seven Colour Spa of the hotel.
After a shower we drove along the northern coastal road through Grand Baie to Pointe aux Pixments for a site inspection and cooking session in Veranda Pointe aux Biches – We were welcomed by a sega dance group and even had the possibility to join the dancing. After the self-cooked lunch it was time to go back for a few hours rest and enjoying the sun and the pools in Veranda Paul & Virginie and then get ready for dinner.
The second day we spend the full day on the Veranda Catamaran cruising in the lagoon, snorkelling, having a nice BBQ on the boat and then spending a few hours on a lonely island.
Late in afternoon we returned to the hotel where our transfer was already waiting to take us to our next stop Veranda Grand Baie. We arrived in time for second sega lesson and to enjoy the beautiful sunset. In the evening we had a really nice dinner on the beach with rum tasting and later we had a look at the night life in Grand Baie.
The next morning our trip continued, we crossed the island and drove to the east coast for a cocktail session and site inspection in our small All-Inclusive hotel Veranda Palmar Beach Resort. Located on one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island Belle Mare Plage.After a light snack we drove to the south, stopping at the sacred lake before reaching the domaine Heritage Bel Ombre, where we checked in the newly renovated 5* plus resort Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Wellness Resort. We enjoyed a very nice lunch in the newly build beach restaurant and then we had a breathing session in the Wellness Pavilion, a very special experience.
In the evening we visited the Heritage Chateau Bel Ombre, where we enjoyed the exquisite cuisine and the fantastic service in this very special setting. Later we had a late night drink in Heritage Awali and enjoyed the very special atmosphere in this African style hotel.
After breakfast it was time to get on the quads in the Heritage nature reserve for a two hour safari to watch the wildlife, the nature and the waterfall. Amazing tour and everybody were surprised to see the size of the domaine . In the afternoon the participants had chosen different activities, golf and stand up paddling and everyone enjoyed themselves.
On the last evening we enjoyed a very special meal in the GinJa restaurant on the beach. What a great way to round up a fantastic and intensive trip.
