Holiday in Mauritius – Day 11
Today is a busy day for us on our holiday in Mauritius, day 11, as we are spending time looking at 2 of the other Veranda resorts. The Veranda Grand Baie and the Veranda Pointe aux Biches. We take a taxi to the first hotel and are introduced to the manager, who shows us the resort.
It is in a great location, only a 5 minute walk in to the centre of Grand Baie.
It has it’s own small beach, or it is a short walk to a choice of 2 public beaches. This hotel caters for families, with a kids club and games room. Rooms are modern, the hotel having been refurbished 4 years ago. After the tour we try the lunch, which was very nice and a sample of their homemade rum. The vanilla one was good, the chilli spicy one was nice, but it did have a bit of a kick.
After a delicious lunch at the Veranda Grand Baie, which includes some rum tasting, we take a taxi over to the second hotel.
This is much more modern, having been refurbished in September 15. It is very much a feet in the sand hotel, welcoming you by asking you to remove your shoes and with this any stress you feel.
This hotel caters for families, but does have a privilege section, just for adults, which we were very impressed with. Lovely modern rooms, all light and airy and this resort had the bonus of a lovely long stretch of sandy beach. This hotel has a kids club, which features loads of fun activities for children to get involved with, but no electronic games.
After the tour we stay at the adults only bar and try out a cocktail and some typical Mauritian nibbles, before leaving. We get our taxi driver to drop us back in Grand Baie and spend time looking around and doing a bit of shopping. It’s a hot day so we stop for a cold drink before catching the bus back to our own resort. All in all it has been a very informative day for us.
