Silver Beach - Beach Towels Provided?

We were due to fly to Thailand on Monday but our plans were cancelled due to the volcanic ash. We have now rearranged and are flying to Mauritius on 2 May.

This destination was always my husbands first choice, we are looking forward to this trip very much.

I have a couple of questions though, does the Silver Beach provide beach towels and hairdryers as this would leave me room in my case for lots more clothes!!!! and is it worth hiring a car for a look around the island as it seems the hotel is fairly isolated (which is a bonus for me).

I can sympathise with you! I'm due to fly out to Mauritius Saturday and have been having kittens all week, but things looking good now.

Silver Beach provides beachtowels, hairdryers, safe and minibar so more room for your clothes. (Very important!)

We always hire a car for the total duration, but you can hire a car for a couple of days at a time. Well worth it, as armed with a good little compact guidebook like Globetrotters Guide to Mauritius, with good pull out map, you can see what you want when you want at your own pace.

Driving is on the left same as the UK.

Silver Beach is isolated like all hotels on the east.

We will be north of you at Belle Mare Plage!

Have a lovely holiday,

Best Wishes

I sympathise too. Having seen your posts on the Khao Lak forum I think we were both meant to be on the same flight!

Is that an offer I can't refuse Bronia ;-)

Joking aside, we're working on it. We elected to cancel completely as we are slightly restricted with dates due to work commitments but if the price came in right for MRU in a time where we could we'd be on it.

No you can't refuse Rob! ;)

Keep working on it, who knows, we might see you there?

So sorry you had your flight cancelled Monday.

It took BA to force the CAA and government's hand on this one, and not before time.

Lots of stress for lots of travellers.

Good luck with your searching Rob,

All the Best,

Bronia :-)

Cheers Bronia,

It might work out and i'll be back at The Sands. Not sure I can feed my Sands and new found Maldives addiction in the same year though!

Bronia - thank you for your reply, destination experts always offer such great advice.

Rob - I think you are right we should have been on the same flight and I was disappointed as Thailand has been on my wish list for some time and Le Meridien sounded fabulous, it also looks like you live very close to me in the UK (small world!!!)

I am looking forward to my holiday in Mauritius as I am a big fan of anywhere in the Indian Ocean since visiting the Maldives, so I am hoping to do some snorkelling (hopfully on the hotel beach)

Thanks again,

Anne

Hi Anne,

Indeed, small world. We were looking forward to Khao Lak and Le M also. Onwards and upwards though as they say. Have a great time in MRU.

Cheers

Hi Anne,

you will have great time at the SBC, like you we are fans of the Maldives, having done them 7 times [8th in feb 11].

there are beach towels provided which can be changed everyday.

we holidayed here 2 yrs ago & are returning at the end of may . we like the charm & peacefull atmosphereof the whole area , but with taxis,& buses its easy to get out& about to experience the mauritian way of life.

have a fab time

regards jude60
