Hello All, I am looking for some expert advice!
I have booked a honeymoon for 12 days to Mauritius from 3-15th september 2011 staying in Beau Rivage Honeymoon suite (5* HB) for 4 nights, then moving to Maradiva Villas (5* Luxury Beach front Villa with plunge pool on HB).
My main concerns are over the temperature at that time of year, that I am informed is an average 24-26 degrees celcius. Has anyone been this time of year, what is it like? We are looking to have a relaxing, sunny, warm/hot sunbathing, beach and sea honeymoon where the beach is pretty much on our doorstep.
I have paid a deposit on this but I am willing to loose that if I find the "perfect holiday". The only thing that makes me doubt Mauritius is wanting the temperature to be a couple of degrees higher.
Due to my insecurities about my choice, I have had advice from a travel consultant that Bali would be a good place to travel to, staying near Seminyak, in a 1 bedroom pool villa at The Dunsun on B&B basis for 12 nights ( http://www.the-dusun.com/?ln=en ). But what worries me about Bali, what are the beaches like, the sea? Mosquitos a big problem? Safe? Food? Rain? Travel to get there, 15 1/2 hrs via one stop in Doha!
We are looking for a difficult ideal to find in September, Beach, white sand, heat, near beach, privacy, own pool/plunge pool, good food, character, good picturesque views.
Any opinions would be great
