Under the palms again

Back in Mauritius, which we have been promoting among our elite clients for 20 years. It is a wonderful destination, all about sandy beaches, turquoise water and palms waving in the breeze as well as delicious fusion food and a wide range of sporting activities.

My long time favourite Royal Palm is as distinguished as ever. Lying in the sheltered north west, this elegant resort usually has calm water wonderful for swimming and all sorts of watersports. 

The gorgeous beach at Royal Palm

And for me tennis!

I love tennis. There are good tennis courts next to the Spa, and  Royal Palm has two very skilled tennis coaches.

Tennis coach Tiga is very good

Rooms! I was impressed with the renovations. There are now fewer rooms and all have a seaview.  They feel lighter and more open – lovely!

Healthy lunch
Haven't seen my friend Mika for a long time so I was thrilled to see her at Royal Palm.

Only 10 min walk along the beach you are in Grand Baie with shops and local restaurants.  

Here with Mika having a true local lunch of grilled fish at a shack

Back at Royal Palm...

Sophisticated atmosphere
Now my next mission - heading off to St Regis in the south….
