Arrived in Mauritius early in the morning on 16th Janury 08 extremely tired aboard an Air Mauritius flight. We flew in from Delhi to Mumbai and after what seemed an eternity boarded the plane. Seat were next to the loo and after a while the stench became un-bearable (Will remember to never take a seat next to the loo again).
An hour plus drive brought us to our Resort (Le Meridien) where all I could think was to crash out. But the stupid people there have a policy of not giving rooms till 2 PM!! We sat it out in the lobby, drowsy, sleepy, tired et al till then and finally got a room. It was supposed to be one of the best as we were paying US$ 350 per room night but turned out to be ordinary stuff. Hotel Room service sucks ! Somehow got fresh and crashed out but couldnt relax. There went the first day.
A good hotel experience seems to be mandatory for a short holiday esp when you are there to unwind and decompress and are in no mood to rough it out. Next days were spent lazing around the beach, water sports and absorbing the magnificient sights of Mauritius. The sad story of the hotel was well compensated by the nice people of Mauritius and the beauty of the place.
