Honeymoon - Le Victoria or Preskil Beach?

Hello

We would like to go to Mauritius for our honeymoon in September 2011. Please advise as to which hotel - Le Victoria or Preskil Beach is better. We would like to spend sometime relaxing but would also like some days out exploring the island, thank you.

Hi Karen,

Le Victoria is in the north west and not too far from the small tourist town of Grand Baie should you want to be near the action and Preskil is in an isolated position in the south close to the local town of Mahebourg.

Le Victoria is part of the large Beachcomber group and is pretty much a family orientated hotel. Preskil may be better suited for honeymooners and is set in the marine park.

Weather wise it can be cooler south than north west so bear that in mind.

Look at

www.beachcomber-hotels.com

www.lepreskil.com

www.world-weather-travellers-guide.com

There are lots of good hotels in Mauritius besides these two you might want to consider as well which cater well for honeymooners.

Regards

Bronia :)

Thanks a lot for the advice and links. What other honeymoon hotels would you recommend? I looked into Sands but it seems that they only do a full board option rather than an all inclusive option. Any other suggestions?

Karen does it have to be AI?

Sands is a lovely hotel in a beautiful setting and is worth considering. I've stayed here and Mazza, another DE stays here frequently.

La Pirogue and its sister Sugar Beach do AI as do the Hilton. These are on the same stretch of beach as Sands.

www.sugarbeachresort.com

www.mauritius.hilton.com

Legends in the north east at Grand Gaube attracts lots of honeymooners and offer an AI package.

Part of Naiade: www.naiade.com

Most Beachcomber hotels do AI. Look at Le Mauricia which is a few minutes walk from Grand Baie and Shandrani in the south at Blue Bay.

If you go HB you have more choice.

I love Belle Mare Plage and Prince Maurice on the east coast, sister hotels on beautiful stretches of beach but they do HB.

Also look at www.apavou-hotels.com

And www.veranda-resorts.com
