Totally Tropical Mauritius
The Yorkshire Post describes Mauritius as “a special, unspoilt dream of a holiday island” in a recent article. Its writer, Adam Jacot de Boinod, got to stay at a number of properties on the island and was wowed by the food, beaches, adventure available and, of course, the clear blue waters.
At the Four Seasons Resort, Boinod got to try the different flavours of cuisine on offer from Chef Nocilas Vienne at the hotel’s Italian restaurant, Acquapazza, which has great views over the lagoon. He says: “He ran me through the contemporary menu of homemade ricotta, spinach ravioli and roasted dorado, one of the local fish, along with ombrine, capitaine and the succulent marlin.”
Boinod also stayed at The Residence, The Hideaways and Lux Le Morne where he enjoyed the “seemingly endless expanse of white sand beach”. He says: “Boats are everywhere, attached to which some people paraglide and many waterski. Mine took me to Île aux Benitiers and the famous Bonsai-like Crystal Coral rock.”
Clearly bowled over by his visit to the island, Boinod finishes by quoting from Christopher Isherwood to describe the experience of being in the sea, a character who “staggers out, wide-open armed to receive the baptism of the surf. Giving himself utterly, he washes away thought, speech, mood, desire, whole selves, entire lifetimes, again and again he returns, becoming always cleaner, freer, less.”
