Mauritius - One and Only St Geran

In mid- August Kingsley and I spent a week staying at a wonderful hotel and resort in Mauritius called the One and Only St Geran.  It's located on the East coast of the island about an hours drive by road from the airport, the hotel occupies a private peninsula with golden sandy beaches.  Of course, the views and the facilities are magnificent but more than that we felt immediately at home after our arrival.

Mauritius is an entire nation of immigrants, many of which are from India. Kingsley went to Universtiy with quite a few Mauritians who became his close friends.  Thus our trip back to visit these friends was very special for Kingsley after all of these years.  Creole is the informal language and is spoken in homes and between friends, but everyone also speaks English.

A good portion of the island is surrounded by an outer reef, which creates calm and piercingly blue lagoons for swimming and awesome water sports. We had a chance to kayak, water ski and do some amazing diving while staying at the resort.   

Overall I would highly recommend this hotel as a gorgeous place to stay in Mauritius.  I am hoping we can return to visit again someday soon.
