Honeymoon Destination - July 2013 - First Time Traveller

Hiya everyone,

I'm getting married this July in Malta (small island in the Mediterranean) and me and my wife to be still haven't sorted out a honeymoon. We'd really like a Caribbean type trip but we've never travelled and I'm finding it kind of daunting with all these different options. We like what we've heard about Mauritius so I thought I'd start here.

We're on a tight budget of around 3,000 euros. Could anyone recommend some hotels for honeymooners? And would you suggest a full board basis, or would it work out cheaper on just a BB basis and eating at local restaurants?

I would look to go at least half board so that is breakfast and lunch dealt with. If you stay near Grand Baie then you will not be too far from other restaurants, bars and fast food places.

Look at Coin de Mire, Veranda Grand Baie. For a more budget hotel Pereybere Hotel & Apartment.

You dont say how long you want to go for or whether your 3000 Euros budget is pp or for both of you.

July is winter in Mauritius. Weather is best on the north/north west/west coasts - like an English summer.

I too would suggest somewhere north as you would be close to the town of Grand Baie which is handy for eating out.

If HB you get breakfast and dinner and just need to pay for lunch and drinks - lots of places in Grand Baie.

My mistake; HB is breakfast and evening dinner.

Hello,

I plan to go to Mauritius with my wife in the last week of July for 6 nights/7 days.

1. What should be a good locality to stay in Mauritius? I am looking for a 3 or 4 star property. The idea is to relax and do a little site seeing.

2. Any details about renting a bike or a car in Mauritius

3. How would be the weather at that period of the year?

Ash - most of your questions have been dealt with in this post already.

Many hotels have bicycle hire available. If you are mean a motor bike then there are lots of companies who hire out scooters in Grand Baie and other areas. For car hire many of us use the following company.

Preston,

Just one smal query, what's difference between Dinner & Evening dinner, as clarified by you in your earlier post in this thread.

Thx in advance

Dinner at HB tends to be evening dinner.

On full board or All Inclusive lunch is also included.
