Mauritius - Sofitel Mauritius L'Imperial Resort & Spa

- this post may contain affiliate links, read more on  disclaimer/contact page    -  In Dec 2012 we took a little break over to Mauritius. We had five nights at the Sofitel L'Imperial Resort & Spa.  It was a beautiful resort in Flic En Flac. Breakfast was included and was stunning, we'd sit there for ages overlooking the pool and the gardens, sampling all the delicious breakfast items on offer! The hotel was a little far from the small town, but there was a bus that you could catch into the town. It was nothing special, quite a rickety old thing, but it cost pennies and got you there safely!  In the town there were a few restaurants, gift shops, where I bought a beautiful sarong and a Spa supermarket. I must admit we were pleased that there was a supermarket near by, so we could stock up on a few room treats! One of the restaurants we went to was Hippocampe, just around the corner from the Spa.

The Westin Langkawi Resort and Spa

This week, I've been looking back on when hubby and I went to Langkawi in May '10 for a couple of days. At the time we were living in Kuala Lumpur. We were only a quick flight away. The scenery was absolutely stunning. Very tranquil. We stayed at the Westin Resort and Spa, which was set in amazing grounds and we even managed to bag ourselves a room upgrade to a suite! The resort has two pools. An infinity pool, which has a swim up bar and was a great place to sit and admire the breathtaking views.  The rock pool was where we spent most of our days. Cooling off under the jets of water! Set in beautiful grounds, surrounded by lush green trees, mountains and a long pier, which was perfect for a romantic stroll.   We were very impressed with the hotel. Definitely lived up to the Westin standard. x Heather  ~ find me on ~ facebook  ∙  twitter  ∙  instagram

Seychelles

We went to the Seychelles in August 2011 and January 2012. The first time we went, we stayed at the Berjaya Hotel, Beau Vallon Bay, Mahe and the second time we were booked into the same hotel, but we could only cope with one night before we relocated to the Kempinski Resort, Baie Lazare.   Berjaya Hotel, Beau Vallon Bay, Mahe Aug 2011 We chose the area Beau Vallon Bay, as my husband went there with his parents when he was a little boy and has fond memories of the holiday. They stayed at the Coral Strand, which wasn't available at the time when we wanted to go, as it was in the middle of major renovations. Berjaya Hotel was the crew hotel for the airline my husband worked for at the time, so we thought that it would be a perfect one to book into. To be honest the hotel was really disappointing. It was very dated and felt quite shabby. It was clean enough though, so we thought 'it will do' as we were only there for a couple
