Luxury Travel: All-time Favourites
Sarah Lancashire, Marketing Manager at Carrier

Find out why Mauritius is Sarah’s all-time favourite.

I am very proud to say that I am half- Mauritian, and feel genuinely blessed that this picture-perfect dot in the Indian Ocean is somewhere that I can call a home from home. The moment I step off the plane, feel the warmth of the tropic sun and catch the faint scent of caramelised molasses from the charring of the surrounding sugar cane fields, a sense of contented-calm envelops me. Memories are filled with holidays visiting family on the island. My brothers, sister and I would wake up and run straight out onto the beach, spend the whole day snorkelling, swimming and kayaking, only returning for lunch at a huge table surrounded by family and friends and, again, at the end of the day, all sitting together to watch the sun melt into the horizon. For a small island, Mauritius has the biggest of hearts; a land that keeps on giving – a generosity truly reflected by the people who live there. And, quite simply, my favourite place on earth.
