Re: Mauritius or Seychelles
With no less than 3 airlines now offering direct flights from TLV to SEZ, I thought it's worth revisiting the topic.

I've been to Mauritius and it's amazing - great hotel redemptions, and a great Chabad Shalia'h, which provided us with all the food / wine we needed, and we always managed to make a minyan when somehow needed to say Kadish (it was in December / high season).

Sadly Mauritius is still closed for the time being (they require 14-day in-room quarantine).

SEZ has no Marriott hotel besides the famous North Island, where certs can't be used. However there are a few Hiltons etc

Anyone been there lately? Any feedback? Thx!
I was there about a year and a half ago and I regretted not going to Mauritius IMO. Haven’t been to Mauritius but it looked more developed and nicer. SEZ although beautiful and while I did visit the other islands and even stayed in La digue for the weekend I found it the accommodations to be pretty lackluster. There were several hotels under construction and I do believe with time it will be a more beautiful and luxurious place to visit! The beaches and the water were stunning! I just think the accommodations, at least compared to Mauritius and other places around the world I stayed, were lacking. Hope that helps! Haven’t gotten around to even starting that TR but I hope to one day finish it! In the mean time feel free to reach out for some info or pics

Re: Mauritius or Seychelles
In which hotels did you end up staying?

On main island it was Avani resort and on La digue it was "Le Relax Luxury Lodge" which I highly recommend avoiding. Pictures made it look nice and it was anything but that.

So... for two people for dinner, spend $50 on POM meals then $125 more on "meal prep." $175 a day for dinner.

Doesn't look like WA is in our future.
Always best to bring a roll of foil on these trips. When you want to heat up meals ask them to bring out the cooler. Wrap how ever many meals you want to heat up (usually 2-3) into one big “meal” and have them heat that up for one charge.
