Discover the Island’s Best-Kept Secrets with the Veranda Resorts Teams

There is no better way to learn about a country than by talking to locals. We asked several of our team members to reveal where they eat, shop and hang.

Suresh – Porter at Veranda Grand Baie

“On my days off, I go to the temple in Rose Belle with family and friends to pray. Every morning I go to the bazaar in Fond du Sac to buy fresh produce, which I take home. I enjoy cooking for my relatives -especially lamb curry.”

Virginia – Kids Club Coordinator at Veranda Grand Baie

Virginia

“I like spending time at Péreybère or Mont Choisy beach or browsing Port Louis’ tiny shops -a chance to grab a kebab from a street vendor. When I have some time of my own, I treat myself to the spa at the Veranda Paul et Virginie followed by a night out in Grand Baie with friends.”

Samuel – Cook at Veranda Grand Baie

Samuel

“I quite like to wander around the Caudan in Port Louis, chow down on a bowl of mine bouilli or fried rice in a little restaurant called Canton in Chinatown. I also like going to the beach in Péreybère and to balls in Cité Roma.”

Elvis – Barman at Veranda Palmar Beach

Elvis

“I live in Camp Garreau, near the center of Flacq, a big village I particularly like, and where you can find anything. There’s a friendly atmosphere and people here live in a community. I especially love market days and the more rural way of life. It is like we are one big family, regardless of community or skin colour.”

Dany – Sports & Leisure Supervisor at Veranda Paul et Virginie

Dany

“It is hard not to fall for La Prairie beach on the island’s south-west coast, which you reach by taking the gorgeous coastal road. It is a stunning route, simply grandiose.”

Nayeck – Gardener at Veranda Paul et Virginie

Nayeck

“I have a fondness for Belle Rive, my place of birth (also where Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam lived.) It is a tranquil village; I still remember gathering with the other village children at night to listen to stories told by our elders.”

Dave – Food & Beverage Executive at Veranda Pointe aux Biches

Dave

“Though the Pamplemousses Botanical Gardens are well-known, I find them to be the perfect place to take a stroll and to recharge. It’s a fun outing with kids, who can run around while the grown-ups revel in the nature of the gardens.”

David – Entertainment Manager at Veranda Pointe aux Biches

David

“I recommend a visit to the Aventure du Sucre museum, an educational and interactive stop. It is particularly well conceived and captivates both adults and children. The restaurant is delicious and the boutique carries a stock of locally-made products.
