On Location – Mauritius Day 2
One of our bloggers is in Mauritius at the moment. Check in each day to catch up on his latest island escapades…
Hello, this is Mauritius calling! Well, I arrived safe and sound. The trip over was a breeze. I think all flights should be A) on a Dreamliner (they’re pretty amazing planes) and B) a night flight (it makes long-haul a piece of cake – I was counting sheep most of way).
Ambre Resort & Spa
Anyhow, here I am on the island of Mauritius. I’ve checked into the Ambre Resort & Spa, which is part of the Thomson Couples range. As the name suggests, the hotel is adults-only territory with tables for two and double daybeds aplenty.
If I had to sum the place up I’d say it has has a chic yet relaxed vibe. The rooms are a case in point – they’re simple, stark white numbers accented with zingy shades of lime, orange and turquoise. Unsurprisingly, the focal point of the complex is the pool. It’s rather sexy – think big canvas parasols, comfy sun loungers and occasional sofas dotted here and there.
But the piece de resistance has to be the location. The Ambre Resort & Spa is pulled right up against the ocean. It’s a classic tropical scene with glossy palm trees, bone-white sands and aquamarine seas. Talking of which, I think it’s high time I road-tested the beach. Well, it’d be wrong not to. Catch you tomorrow.
