Garden
“The SSR Botanical Garden, commonly known as the Pamplemousses Botanical Garden, is a popular tourist attraction and the oldest botanical garden in the Southern Hemisphere.

Shopping Centre
“La Croisette is the most faithful representation of the Western World available in Mauritius. It is a wide, modern and well-maintained mall with many luxury shops, fine dining restaurants, and sophisticated public areas. Although it sure pleases, it is quite expensive for locals and is rather empty even on weekends.”

In the garden discover the rum and let yourself be tempted some tasting. Indulge your taste buds by savoring Mauritian dishes at the castle table.”
