Pool loungers, beach sunsets and cocktails on tap: A recap of a very luxe week in Mauritius.

The new Alma Beach Bar – which overlooks a never-ending stretch of pristine beach – is a particular highlight, especially at sunset, when you can watch the sun, and all its pink, purple and golden rays gently melt into the horizon.

Club Med accommodation.

From a lush bed to a clawfoot tub and rainfall shower heads, the rooms at Club Med felt just as considered as the surrounding grounds. After spending the day soaking up the sun and utilising the resort’s many resources, my room felt like the perfect ‘home away from home’.

Room service, daily housekeeping and turn-down service (complete with a little treat) is included in every package, and parents can rest easy, knowing they can drop their little ones at the renowned Club Med Kids Club, which caters for ages 4-17.

There are two types of holiday people: those who love a buffet, and those who would rather graze on a tropical fruit platter. While both options were catered for at Club Med, if you sit in the former camp, then GREAT NEWS.

There was never a day I wasn’t completely blown away by Club Med’s culinary offerings. Wagyu steaks, grilled crayfish, pan-fried salmon, sushi, a made-to-order pasta bar, and countless other dishes were on offer, as were many ‘speciality plates’ from various cuisines like Chinese, Indian, French and Thai. There were also specific days when guests could sample traditional Mauritian dishes which draw inspiration from the island’s history of French, Creole, Indian and Chinese influences.

Coconut water pina coladas (for balance), made with local Mauritian rum and double buffet breakfasts.
