Dreaming of the Ultimate Family Beach Holiday
Winter school holidays are fast approaching. Have you booked your family holiday? World Leisure Holidays has the perfect family getaway for you at the world-class Anantara IKO Mauritius Resort. Located on the secluded South East Coast of Mauritius, you’ll enjoy absolute bliss at this luxury destination steps away from the pristine Le Chaland beach. Nothing beats making new family memories together, memories that will last forever.
Anantara Mauritius is an exquisite family resort with an eco-friendly design. Natural materials of volcanic rock, coral and driftwood complement the natural beauty of the ocean, sand and sunset. Accommodation at this award-winning destination is contemporary and spacious and all rooms have a terrace or balcony with a daybed that overlooks either the resort’s gardens or the Indian Ocean’s sparkling shades of blue. After a stroll on the white powdery beach, enjoy a rejuvenating rain shower or a pampering bubble bath in a separate bathtub. The infinity pool that stretches for days towards the Indian ocean magnifies the resort’s beauty. Why not ditch the hot chocolate and enjoy an exotic poolside cocktail?
No family beach holiday is complete without great food to fill the bellies and Anantara Mauritius will not disappoint. Horizon offers bountiful buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner, celebrating the fusion of the island’s different cultures. An alternative dinner option is Sea.Fire.Salt. with mouth-watering fresh seafood and an open-air bar to enjoy a nightcap while listening to a relaxing soundtrack. For the health fanatic, Bon Manzer (meaning “good food” in Creole), offers organic meals and healthy cuisine like smoothies, salads and wraps. Vegetarian and vegan meals are also on offer. Karokan Poolside Bar will keep you refreshed and hydrated throughout the day and night. Private dining in a wine cellar can be arranged for two to four guests along with a private chef, a personalised menu and wine pairing. To immerse yourself in Mauritian culture, sign up for a Creole cooking class with a chef and taste locally made lychee wine.
Tired of lazing around on the beach, (if that’s even possible!), enjoy a multitude of unique outdoor activities for the whole family. These include water skiing, kite surfing, diving, deep sea fishing and catamaran cruises. The resort is close to Blue Bay Marine Park, a nature reserve for the best snorkelling and diving experience on the island. The colourful coral beds, of which some are 800 years old, are a feast for the eyes. See surgeonfish, parrotfish, needlefish and many more tropical fish. You might even be lucky enough to spot a turtle, moray eels and the elusive clownfish.
For local exploring, the south east corner of the island is a gateway to different activities. Why not join in the hotel’s Cultural Guruon, a fun journey of discovery of the “old world” Mauritius. Visit the historical village of Mahebourg, the first capital of Mauritius. It’s known for its vibrant market, charming naval museum, and historical relics. And if that’s not enough, avid explorers can enjoy an outing to tea plantations and rum distilleries or a nature reserve hike in ‘Ile aux Aigrettes.’
Of course a family holiday might include a round or two of Golf and there are more than a dozen scenic golf courses dotted all over the island. These range from basic 9-hole courses to 18-hole signature courses. Whichever you choose, the most beautiful Mauritian landscaping is a delight. Imagine fairways lined with coconut trees, spectacular sea views and the sweet scent of frangipani blossoms.
Those seeking to nurture body and mind can indulge in traditional hammam spa rituals or a rejuvenating Thai massage at the hotel’s tropical spa sanctuary. An ideal spot to relax and unwind because you deserve it.
