For prices of food at the hotel you might want to email the hotel directly. As for what eating outside the hotel, there are some restaurants in the vicinity but I would rather go to Grand Baie and eat something there. As dinner and breakfast is included, I would go for something light such as fast food or even street food.

I would also visit several tour shops in Grand Baie to enquire about catamaran trips, there are plenty of shops to choose from, so enquire about packages and negotiate a price, look for discounts of at least 25%.

As for things to do, look at the top questions on your right hand corner.

You can shop around in Grand Baie for the catamaran cruise. All the operators sell the same trips - you are looking at about Rs1200 per person for full day cruise including lunch and drinks.

I was at the Casuarina in September and I enjoyed all the food. However, if you're looking for a change from the buffet in the evening, you'd probably find it hard to get a better a la carte, three course meal than at the Treetops Restaurant at the Casuarina itself. It has a lovely ambiance, great waiter service, fresh linen on the tables, together with flowers and candles, and an excellent, if slightly limited, choice of food at various price points.

Have a look at the menu when you arrive, but it's not open every evening, so book early if you decide to go for a special treat on your honeymoon. We went for my husband's birthday and we weren't disappointed - in fact we went again it was so nice!

Congratulations on your forthcoming marriage. Hope you have a wonderful time in Maurutius - and don't forget to take full advantage of all the free water activities the hotel offers on the beach - enough to keep you busy all week!

Cheers ❤️
