Stayed at: Berjaya Le Morne, a 4 star resort
Number of Days: 7
Stay Advice: A
2 star or 3 star comes cheap .. but Berjaya is worth your money since you are going to be
spending maximum time inside the hotel. The city goes dead after 7 p.m. so it is the hotel
where you spend a lot of time
so choose a nice, decent to keep you entertained.
Moreover, if it is raining (since it's a tropical climate) you may have to stay indoors!!
Berjaya Le Morne offers a swimming pool with a bar (formed in an island way), it has a
disco (pretty dead though), a gazebo (a stage where local dance is usually performed
during the evening). The cottages are surrounded with palm trees and the hotel provides
free golf cart rides to your cottage in case you don't feel walking that extra mile!
A ride to blue safari submarine. You are taken 130 feet deep in the ocean,where you
explore life as it is. You see what you can never see unless you dive that deep! For a
non-diver, it is a dream come true! A must-see since this experience is available only in
two places across the world.
A Scary Incident
We started at 9 a.m. on our Catamaran cruise (it usually takes 6 hours). We cruised with
food and drinks and merried till mid-sea. Then we had to stay in mid-sea and take a break
for some people who wanted to just dive the DO THE DEW way. The catamaran was halted and
we had 2 small boats to generally take us around in case you wish (while the cruiser takes
At the point of starting again
we noticed we were in low tide with depth as little as 5 feet (no one paid attention). The
Catamaran didn't move in that shallow depth. We abandoned the catamaran after one and a
half hours of trying in those small boats...pushing it and people trying hard to move it.
We (25 people) started to go off-shore in small boats then. In mid-sea we noticed that the
engine failed after 10 minutes. The second boat engine was tried to fit in this one, but
it didn't work so we roped our boat with the other boat and it started to pull us. It
pulled for 20 minutes and ran off petrol.The petrol was filled and we prayed it doesn't
finish now. We had to return by 3 p.m. and it was already 5.30 p.m. (getting a little
dark) and it started to rain. We asked for live-jackets but they didn't have any! It was
so scary. I then observed that my shoes were dancing away left to right in the boat (there
was water in the boat because of the rain and some small leakage).
