Mauritius is the new kid on the block for us – from May 2014, our 787 Dreamliners will be skirting the eastern edge of Africa on their way to this Indian Ocean isle. And, having pored over photos of white-sand beaches, Tiffany-blue waters and thick rainforest, we’re more excited than the day we all got a free Mr Whippy in the office.

It’s a tough job, but someone’s got to do it. I’ll also give you a preview of some of Mauritius’ best crash pads. I’ll dip my toes into infinity pools, work my way through the menu at fancy à la carte restaurants and flop onto king-sized beds – all in the name of research, of course.
