We also looked at Mauritius for part of our honeymoon–we were going to South Africa, and wanted a warm, beach-y type place where we could relax for a week. We looked at the Four Seasons, the Oberoi, and One&Only Resort. Ultimately, we decided to go to Benguerra Island in Mozambique instead–it was a little less expensive and seemed less touristy and sterile–it didn’t seem like any of the resorts on Mauritius embodied much culture of the island, but I’m sure you can find ones that do! Are you just going to be going to Mauritius, or will you be in other areas near there as well?

We’re thinking about Africa too but no clue what we want out of it.  We live in Hawaii, so we don’t want all beach.  We live in Hawaii but are having a mainland wedding and “popping” to Africa costs just as many miles for me as it would cost to go to Bali (our initial choice).  Unfortunately, the routings from Honolulu to Bali suck, and it takes 32 hrs to go a place that’s 10 or less as the crow flies.  

We think we want traditional “Africa” of Tanzania/Kenya and then maybe South Africa or one of the islands – Seychelles, Mauritius, etc.

Would love to hear what you come up with!

Oh wow, I missed this when you first posted. I really have no advice, but my ex husband is from Mauritius! We never made it over there together because it’s so expensive and every time we tried to plan the trip I was either pregnant or didn’t want to travel halfway around the world with one (then two) small children. 🙂 It’s supposed the be breathtakingly beautiful, and he told great stories of spending days at the beach and in water so calm and crystal clear. I am sure you’ll love it if you go! Most people get a blank look on their faces when I talk about Mauritius, so it was just neat to see it pop up here.

Good friends just returned from South africa and Mauritius and were very disappointed with Mauritius. They said beaches were sub par and service/food also disappointing. If you’re in that neck of the woods and want beach check out “Azure” in Mozambigue instead.

@nyc2labride: AHh!! That’s where we stayed!! We went to South Africa and then went to Mozambique and stayed at Azura Lodge. It was SO amazing and SO gorgeous–highly recommend it to anyone!
