As if Mauritius couldn’t get any more romantic, Veranda Resorts has introduced a dreamy way to explore the picture perfect volcanic island and the Indian Ocean; on board the resorts’ own private catamaran.
The catamaran, called ‘Deep into the Blue’ is available for private hire as well as group trips. A private trip on ‘Deep into the Blue’ is deal for couples who wish to take a romantic trip in an intimate atmosphere. Couples can watch the sunset and enjoy grilled lobsters on-board. To take things up a notch guests can even have a private butler on board.
A private, romantic trip for two on the catamaran costs MUR 15,000 (approx. GBP 291).
Another romantic option is the ‘Romance at Sunset’ trip on Mondays. This adult’s only trip involves cocktails on-board while watching the sunset, followed by a candlelit dinner.
The Romance at Sunset trip costs MUR 8,000 (approx. GBP 155) for two people.
Guests from all four Veranda Resorts hotels can book trips on the catamaran. The group trips depart from Veranda Paul & Virginie, an adult’s only hotel, popular with couples. The hotel is named after Paul et Virginie from Bernardin de St-Pierre’s novel, who are often referred to as the Mauritian equivalent of Romeo and Juliet. This intimate hotel oozes romance, with double sunbeds and love seats scattered through the grounds. There is also a thatched gazebo overlooking the turquoise lagoon, a perfect spot for a Valentine’s Day drink, or perhaps even a proposal. Couples truly are at the centre of this magnificent resort.
The catamaran is a great way to visit the most beautiful parts of Mauritius, such as the Grand Gaube lagoon, one of the largest lagoons in Mauritius, or to the superb Ile aux Bernaches, is a small islet which is popular with couples as it has a stunning, secluded beach on its south coast. The island is surrounded by a lagoon perfect for swimming. With many sites protected by coral reefs, Mauritius offers a number of exceptional marine landscapes, and the new catamaran allows guests to get closer to these sights. So what are you waiting for? Mauritius is waiting…
‘Deep into the Blue’ has 22 seats and a crew of 3 skippers. The hotel guest relations team will help guests with any queries regarding trips.
Rooms at Veranda Pointe Aux Biches start from £85 per night (2 sharing; B&B)
