Mums are the heart and soul of every family, the tower of strength and comfort and
sometimes, mums need to take a well-deserved break to recharge, reload and revive with a lovely, lazy holiday in a tropical place like the island Mauritius where it’s all about beaches, blue skies, azure waters, luxury villas, sunsets, palm trees, cocktails, exotic food and relaxation. Here are 5 ways for mums to relax and enjoy Mauritius:
1. Luxury stays
First of all, make sure your base on the island is all about privacy, leisure and luxury. Lucky enough, Mauritius features great private pool villas with beautiful gardens and modern comforts. A perfect holiday home to recharge and reload, enjoying breakfast under the sun and taking a dive into the pool before going out to explore the island’s highlights. After a lovely seaside dinner, coming home to you island house is blissful every time! I would recommend picking a villa with a strategic location, close to the beach and popular towns such as Grand Baie – can’t go wrong with this!
2. Sip healthy coconuts and sunset mojitos at the beach
One island – tons of beautiful beaches, coconuts and locally produced rum – you know what you mums have to go! Go laze the day away on the white sandy shores with the most perfect azure blue crystal clear waters and leafy palm trees as the backdrop. Snooze in a hammock while sipping a healthy whole young coconut if it’s too early for one of those cocktails and later on the day, head to one of the island’s beach clubs to try out all of the cocktails and gaze at the sunset. Let the goodness of life pamper you! Soak up those sun rays to catch that gorgeous tropical island tan and let go of all of your worries or any thoughts at all that are not about holidaying in paradise. Mauritius features busy beaches with lively beach clubs and seaside restaurants as well as quiet and desolate beaches perfect for connecting with nature.
3. Massages and spa treatments
Mauritius has a rich blend of cultures, resulting in a wide range of… Yes! Spa treatments. Influenced by the healing traditions and ancient knowledge of India, China and Africa, you can be sure of great massages to revive your body, mind, soul and spirit. There are plenty of super deluxe spas to choose from, offering excellent spa packages that do the magic. Go on, mums, get pampered and spoil yourselves!
4. Nightlife in Grand Baie
You can’t be a mum every night and especially not this holiday. Tonight, it is time to dress up, put on some makeup and let your hair down, exploring the nightlife of buzzing beach towns like Grand Baie. Go dance the night away and let your body sway to the music. Look out for the ‘Sega Nights’ where you can learn some special moves of the local Mauritian Sega dance. Let your hips dance to the music and have fun! You will certainly be allured by the beautiful dresses and dances-moves of the locals.
2. Guilt-free shopping
Go splurge out and don’t hold back. Mauritius offers great quality products at affordable prices. Beautiful handicrafts, handmade bags, jewellery, local coffees and teas but also fashion branded clothing and more. There are lively, colourful markets around, great fun to stroll around on and there are also classy shopping malls where the money rolls more easily out of your pockets. You are a mum and you are free, do get some guilt-free shopping done. Go on a souvenir hunt if you feel like it and definitely be sure to treat yourself to something new(s) and beautiful or stylish as well. Don’t miss out on the grand bazaar in Grand Baie, the Port Louis Central Market and the brand-new shopping centre Bagatelle Mall.
