Something Blue - Royal Palm Beachcomber Hotel

Something Blue – Mauritius

This months something blue is the beautiful, clear shade of the Indian ocean.

Back in February this year we were very honored to attend Brides Magazines 60th anniversary ball at the very beautiful Goodwood House in Chichester (which also makes a very beautiful wedding venue!) To make the evening even more special we were lucky enough to win a 7-night holiday to Mauritius courtesy of Elegant Resorts in association with Brides Magazine!

This month I jetted off to Mauritius to relax in the luxuries of the Royal Palm Hotel, all seamlessly organised by the amazing team at Elegant resorts. ( I couldn’t recommend them more!)

Located on the sheltered north-west coast, stretching along a pure white sandy beach, Royal Palm is a tranquil tropical haven with an uncompromising commitment to excellence. I have to say it was the most beautiful place I have ever laid eyes on.

Royal Palm is the stylish flagship property of Beachcomber Hotels and offers the pinnacle of Mauritian luxury and hospitality. This boutique-style resort is one of the most prestigious in Mauritius and is a longstanding member of The Leading Hotels of the World. Royal Palm is a tranquil hideaway set in an idyllic location beside a white sand beach and the sparkling turquoise waters of the Grand Baie Lagoon.


Each of the spacious suites features elegant furnishing and appointments with a sea facing balcony or terrace. Guests of Royal Palm enjoy signature haute cuisine and an excellent range of leisure facilities including land and water sports and a Mini Club for children.


It also had a Spa! The Spa by Clarins offers luxurious body, massage and beauty treatments in a serene tropical setting, perfect for relaxation. With exquisite all-suite accommodation, superb facilities and impeccable service, Royal Palm provides the perfect setting for a luxury holiday in the heart of the Indian Ocean.

Personally tailored to create everlasting memories, the choices are endless. From an intimate beachside ceremony to an extravagant family affair, the resort offers a range of elegant and charming venues, surrounded by the beauty of nature. This ultra-luxury resort will leave you and your guests with lifelong memories of relaxation, indulgence and adventure.

This small island with its turquoise lagoon and coral reef is as naturally colourful as its cultural mix.

The people, the food, the beaches, the island and not forgetting that clear blue sea… it really was paradise. The Royal Palm Hotel was the epitome of luxury.

  1. When considering a destination wedding, I think the best wedding location is Mauritius. It’s just breathtaking with the white beaches and palm trees, plus staying in a luxury hotel in Mauritius is an experience no one could ever forget!
