Il Maurice, more than just a resort getaway.
May 03, 2016 When many think of Mauritius; idyllic beaches, turquois waters, romantic sunsets and 5-star resorts probably spring to mind, and while it is all of those things, it’s so much more… Think dolphin diving, walking with lions and feeding giraffes. Think of tasting the world’s finest sugars and premium rums. Imagine ornate temples and towering Hindu statues. Discover natural phenomena like the 7 Colour Earth and giant water lilies. Picture an exotic island founded by seafarers and explorers… Visiting Mauritius will unveil a whole new way of thinking of this paradisiac jewel in the Indian Ocean.

Travelling opens our eyes to a world much bigger than ourselves. When we explore other cultures, we find that the things that make us similar are greater than the things that make us different.
