Carla, our Intern shares with us memories from her Mauritius family holidays and how Canonnier Beachcomber will always hold a special place in her heart...
Mauritius is meant for family time
Enjoying family holidays in Mauritius for 17 years, Carla visited Canonnier Beachcomber "for holidays with my family, my parent's friends and their kids who are the same age as myself and my sister."
You'd be forgiven for thinking that family holidays in Mauritius are all about building sand castles and spending time in the pool. In reality there is so much to do at our Beachcomber Hotels that you and your children will never get bored with our kids club holidays. And there is lots to explore outside the resort as well, as Carla explains during every family holiday in Mauritius they would try to explore as much of the island as possible as it "is so beautiful and there are lots of things to discover." From exploring the geological delights in "Chamarel to sampling tea in the Bois Cheri region and visiting Casela" - the scenic nature park which is home to fruit bats, quad bikes, zip lines and much more!
Carla recalls how one year they "went on a catamaran trip with some friends for two days." Which she remembers as "one of my best experiences in Mauritius." Although she found it hard to sleep on the boat the chance to go "snorkelling, see lots of vibrant fish and even some dolphins - was simply amazing."
When it came to meal times, her family often went to "Navigator to admire the spectacular views of the beach and the surrounding islands." But there was always the option of choosing to eat with her new friends at the kids and teens club as well.
Fun activities at the Kids Club
With so many precious memories of days spent at the kids club at Canonnier Beachcomber, Carla reminiscences about her most fun experiences. Aged seven, Carla "took part in a fashion show, we wore clothes from the hotel shop and a make-up artist came to transform us into lions,tigers, butterflies and even fairies using brightly coloured face paints." The kids fashion show was accompanied by "music and watched by our parents - it was a lot of fun!"
She says, "I loved going crab hunting in the evenings." Armed with big buckets "we would pick seashells at the same time." Of course, there were loads of activities to enjoy during the day at the Kids club from "t-shirt painting to games in the pool and boat excursions as well."
In fact, the action-packed schedule of activities at Canonnier Beachcomber offer something for every young guest to enjoy which includes;
One of the greatest joys from a holiday is discovering the local culture, the Mauritian themed activities offered at Beachcomber kids clubs allow your children to fall in love with the diverse and fascinating Mauritian culture. From learning the sega dance and tucking into delightful picnics to taking Creole lessons and enjoying an immersive storytelling session about the famous and now extinct ‘Dodo who wanted to fly.’ Every day at the kids club offers a chance to broaden young minds and develop cultural appreciation from a young age.
Whether your child is a little Picasso or mini Nigella in the making, the creative activities available at the kids clubs give children of all ages the chance to express themselves through arts & crafts. Young guests can let their creativity and imagination flourish by producing beautiful flower arrangements and creating a holiday memento from the t-shirt painting sessions. A highlight for children staying at Royal Palm Beachcomber is the weekly cooking class, dressed in the traditional white hat and apron budding chefs can discover the secrets of cake-baking from one of the hotels professional chefs.
Dedicated to safeguarding the natural beauty of Mauritius, the Kids Club programme includes fun educational activities that educate young guests about important environmental issues. From taking part in recycling activities and discovering the impacts on marine environments to developing gardening skills, exploring the beach and making a positive difference with beach cleaning sessions.
Encouraging children to socialise and make lasting friendships the hotels host various fun events that the whole family can enjoy. From taking part in sega dance shows to embracing the spirit of Mauritius with Carnival days, the kids work together to produce outfits and demonstrate the skills they have learned.
Mauritius’ warm gentle waters and superb land sport facilities provide a safe environment for children to discover a new sporting passion or develop their favourite hobby further. With each of the Beachcomber Hotels offering a vast selection of complimentary land and water sports there are plenty of opportunities for your little ones to embrace their sporty side. Under the careful guidance of the sports instructors they can learn to windsurf, ace their tennis serve or golf swing and even master the waves with a water-ski session.
Little golfing fans will adore the 9 hole mini golf course at Canonnier Beachcomber Golf Resort & Spa which replicates the last nine holes of the magnificent Mont Choisy Golf course. Nestled within the resorts tropical gardens and lit at night it provides a fun environment for all ages to practise their swing whilst admiring breath-taking views. But if they feel like taking their golf skills up a gear, the golf induction and junior coaching sessions at Paradis Golf course and Mont Choisy golf course offer the perfect solution.
