Imagine a room overlooking the ocean, a private patio leading directly to a freshwater pool the size of a lagoon. Imagine relaxing and not having to getting out of bed. Imagine letting yourself slide gently into silky smooth water or cooling off in the midday sun on a deckchair on the edge of a crystal clear stretch of water hugging the winding curve of the shore.

It is said, “Two are better than one,if two lie down together, they will keep warm.”
Don’t we all dream of  sitting in the water drinking to the happy times shared with that special person, sheltered from the noise and clamour of children, in total peace and quietness?

For the first time in Mauritius, these magical yearnings have become tangible reality. The daydream has come true. And Beachcomber is the proud initiator.

For the Victoria Beachcomber Resort & Spa has planned this wonderfully new human and architectural adventure, by designing the Victoria for 2:  a part of the Resort set aside set aside exclusively for adults, away from the crowd and right in the heart of the natural landscape.

Enjoy a unique experience in one of the 40 rooms facing the ocean and the marine park, including 17 Swim-up rooms, right on the water’s edge, leading directly into the huge (800 square metres) swimming pool. And the dream continues: the ‘Nautil Café’ and the gourmet ‘Moris Beef’ restaurant (named for the vintage car parked outside the entrance), together with the private beach, are all reserved for the special guests of the “Victoria for 2”. 
Inside the room and outside, the generous amount of space is over present.

The bright spacious rooms are enhanced with splashes of emerald green and opal blue, and adorned with natural materials: wood, white linens and cottons, wicker furniture and lamps. A harmonious décor made for sharing and relaxing. One thing is sure: that magical dream is not about to stop!

Getaway with your beloved this New Year and let IRIS Reps take care of all the arrangments. We are only a call away!

Coco Collection – Manta Rays

It’s that time of the year again, and this means that we have good news at Coco Bodu Hithi… MANTA RAYS! The animal kingdom is home to fascinating and mysterious creatures that can amaze your heart. We love having the Manta Rays from December till April every year.

are found to be distributed only in tropical, subtropical and temperate waters of the Indian, Pacific and Atlantic oceans. They visit North Malé-atoll as part of their migration around the Maldives. Coco Bodu Hithi, is only 15 minutes away by Dhoni is Rasfari North reef, a cleaning spot that Manta rays frequent for small fish to clean them. If you are lucky, there is a chance to spot these mesmerizing rays while snorkelling at this reef.
Reef Manta Rays are mostly solitary creatures, coming together only to mate and feed. When feeding, they can form loose aggregations of three, and large aggregations of as many as 150 individuals! When a Manta Ray is feeding, the cephalic lobes which are usually rolled like spirals on either side of their heads are straightened out to help funnel food into their large gaping mouths.Their diet consists basically of zooplankton.
You can even contribute to our citizen science projects and assist our marine biologist by taking pictures to identify Manta Rays.There are two species of Manta Rays: the reef manta (Manta alfredi) and the giant manta ray (Manta birostris). Both species are classified as “vulnerable” in the Red List of the International Union for Conservation of Nature. To identify a Manta Ray, you need to look at its underside as each individual has a unique pattern of spots on its belly. This ventral view is not only important to identify individuals but it also reveals the sex of the Manta. The largest species is the giant manta ray, whose central disc can measure up to 9 meters wide.
Manta Rays have been observed jumping out of water, presumably to eliminate parasites or to communicate, although there is also the possibility that the act constitutes a game. They are agile and elegant swimming makes them being compared with birds flapping their wings during flight.
