Laura came to me needing help with planning her honeymoon. Although she had a few destinations in mind, she and Aaron were undecided on which would be the perfect choice for them.
After listening to their requirements and getting to know Laura a little better, I knew from first-hand experience that they would love the Trou Aux Biches Beachcomber Resort in Mauritius.
I am glad to say that I was right and have since booked several other trips for the adorable Laura as well as for her lovely family and friends.
When I recently enquired, she was only too keen to revisit their special trip...
I am not sure what I would have done without Susan. She stuck with me for months, patiently listening to everything we wanted from our honeymoon, answering all questions, changing itineraries, communicating everything superbly and always on the ball for us.
We eventually decided on Mauritius and the stunning Trou aux Biches Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa, which was the perfect choice for a truly special and memorable trip.
The resort sits right on top of a beautiful, peaceful beach and was amazing - exceeding everything we had hoped for.
Our large tropical ground floor suite was absolutely stunning, with a beautiful outside shower in addition to an indoor one and a large bathtub.
We had direct access to our own swimming pool area, shared with a couple of nearby suites but which was never busy at all and like having our own private pool, especially for our wonderful sunset swims.
I enjoy my exercise so I thoroughly enjoyed the gym facilities throughout my stay as well as some lovely runs along the beautiful beach.
Paddleboarding was brilliant, and we also tried water skiing along with another couple on their honeymoon, which was great fun and highly entertaining.
The food served in the restaurants and the buffet was exceptional. Our only issue was having too much great choice and it was impossible not to overindulge. The staff and hospitality throughout were top class and we felt like VIPs for the entire stay!
Already feeling truly pampered and relaxed at the resort, we topped it off with a couple of fabulous massages on the beach,
We were also keen to venture out and explore the island a little, so we hired a car for a couple of days to drive around and experience the real Mauritius. Seeing the natural beauty of the unspoilt island was just beautiful; the powder-white beaches and clear ocean were stunning.
Bizarrely, the further south we headed, the wetter the weather became. We left the north of the island in hot sun in the mornings and it was raining heavily by the time we reached the south.
We came face to face with the biggest turtles we have ever seen at a local sanctuary, where excitedly we got to feed and touch them too, and we were lucky enough to spot whales on a fantastic boat trip arranged via the resort.
After a delicious on-board lunch, we got to stop in an area of crystal-clear water and got to snorkel and swim with all the unusual, colourful fish.
It would have been great to see a little more of the island, but this is an extremely good excuse for returning one day.
This was a luxurious and memorable experience, which I would highly endorse to those looking for a treat, especially for a honeymoon and I can’t recommend Susan highly enough to organise everything - she was fantastic from beginning to end.
