The most Royal of Palms

Royal Palm, Mauritius. The name evokes  the utmost in exclusivity and charm. Add to that arrival by helicopter and you fall deeply in love with this pride of the Beachcomber chain…

Our visit was a daytrip to have lunch with our cherished partners at Royal Palm.
Helitours are always exciting...

We passed over one of our new Beachcomber resorts Trou aux Biches – a totally recreated five star resort on the site of the original popular four star one. Trou aux Biches commands an attractive beach washed by sheltered waters – a lovely resort of luxury villas and suites.

Returning to Dinarobin - A lovely journey,
