PALMAR BEACH

October 16, 2013 docdivatraveller 39 Comments

After week long festivities, its time to relax!! I had a crazy time having fun during durga puja  and so today I need to write about a laid back vacation which makes me crib about my mundane life!! Whenever I think of anywhere pampering or luxurious, only one place comes to my mind...Mauritius!!

The pristine beaches, turquoise waters and the amazing beach resort...all redefine divinity!! I may sound a bit partial towards Mauritius as it was my honeymoon destination, but believe me it deserves my every word of praise that I have for this place!!

We had a week long retreat at the Hotel Ambre which is situated on the Palmar Beach in Belle Mare. When I had reached our resort after a week long intercity wedding and reception followed by an eight hour flight followed by a hour long drive through the winding pathways, I was in no mood to enjoy my arrival. I was sitting half dead in the reception as hubby was filling out the details. But as soon as we were taken to our room and my tired eyes fell on the Indian Ocean, I was immediately recharged!! I just jumped in joy at the sight of the turquoise water!! Hubby was taken back indeed at  my sudden and drastic recovery!! But of course he was more than happy...after all, who wants to start ones's honeymoon with a sulking sick wife?? :D

The following pictures are from a leisure day..that is when we did not go for any sight seeing and were lazying around. We started walking on the resort part of Palmar beach to the pulic beach gradually. The skies were absolutely clear when we started, but suddenly it became overcast and began to pour horrendously!! We could not even run for cover and got drenched in distilled water instead of saline!! :D Due to the cloud cover during the dry half of our stroll, the photos did not turn out as I would have liked them to be!!

love the view of the sea from our resort...

thats my favourite hobby..getting drenched in sea water...

after frolicking around, its time to relax!!

trying to emulate a famous Bollywood movie scene :D

really wonder how these shrubs managed to grow in the sand!!

the overcast sky playing spoilsport :(

hubby and his animal antics :D

this is what my husband calls me...no longer a secret :p :p
