Heritage Le Telfair Mauritius – A Top Luxury Mauritius Resort

Heritage Le Telfair Mauritius – A Top Luxury Mauritius Resort

I realize I say this a lot about trips that we take or meals that we eat, but in the case of Mauritius, I really had no idea what to expect. Having taken our first trip to the Maldives last year, Mauritius was really just another island on my Indian Ocean bucket list. But, what I found out was that we were headed for a luxury Mauritius resort, with way more to do than I anticipated, and with character entirely different from the Maldives. A week in Mauritius at the Heritage Le Telfair Mauritius was just what was needed.  Heritage Resorts Mauritius includes Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort, as well as its neighbor Heritage Awali, provided the perfect Mauritius escape. Together they are easily some of the top Mauritius resorts. Planning For Our Week at Heritage Mauritius I let Eric plan this trip. I was busy working on launching our online social media training school right up until the very end. In this case, a PR company asked if we wanted to promote a trip to Mauritius just after our business launch. We jumped on the opportunity for a well needed holiday at a Mauritius resort. Eric did all the planning, choosing the flights, and everything else. I knew nothing about Mauritius before we arrived, other than a quick Mauritius Wikitravel search. And, I kind of liked it that way. I was so unknowledgeable that a few days before we left, I had to do a Google Maps search to see exactly where the island was.

What to Eat in Mauritius – Searching for the Best Mauritius Food

Before traveling to Mauritius, I really didn’t know much about the island, or Mauritian cuisine. I made some assumptions (many of them wrong) but I was pleasantly surprised at the varied of foods to eat in Mauritius. And, during our time in Mauritius, I was excited to learn so much about Mauritius food. In this post, I share our recommendations on what to eat in Mauritius. What To Eat in Mauritius The food in Mauritius was entirely a surprise. Mauritius island is a melting pot, with a unique combination of African, Indian, Chinese, French, and British influence. The Brits probably have the least direct influence on the cuisine, although tea is very popular. This melting pot influence means you can eat curry, dim sum, and a Chateaubriand all in one day. Or, some Mauritian dishes combine the influence from these varied cuisines into one dish, a Creole-inspired dish. The Mauritius language and religion is a mix of all of these influences, melting together, as is the Mauritius traditional food. We ate some of these Mauritius dishes on a great Mauritian food tour, but others we were able to eat at one of the top Mauritius hotels, the Heritage Le Telfair, as well. It was a perfect mix of the best places to eat in Mauritius, from Mauritius street food to luxury places to eat in Mauritius, with a side of Mauritius rum!
