Set on a strip of pure, white, sandy beach that melts into a crystal-clear, turquoise lagoon, this is a magical resort for the perfect honeymoon or holiday to get away from it all. It’s an absolutely gorgeous place, there’s no denying that, but then all Beachcombers are. However, what makes it stand out is that it is the first certified eco-friendly resort in the Beachcomber family, in fact it’s acutally the first in all of Mauritius, which is a big win for us. Knowing that we’re minimalising our impact on the local environment while we holiday is comforting. The hotel’s position on the North West coast, sheltered by the headland at Mont Choisy means that it gets its share of great weather and dramatic (romantic) sunsets. Our lavish beachfront chalet came complete with its own private plunge pool, crazy really considering there are six main pools on the whole resort. This meant we could escape from the madding crowd, whilst being directly on the beach – the discreet and private vacation we were looking for. Good job too, because the Trou Aux Biches is otherwise quite a large resort and golf club, but to be really honest we hardly noticed anyone else. This is escapism at its very best.
