Please Do Not Disturb ; Lazy Days: TV Presenter June Soaks Up the Sun at le Touessrok, Top


TWO of my best friends, novelist Kathy Lette and fashion expert GerryDeVeaux, had both been to Le Touessrok in Mauritius and said it was gorgeousand that I had to go.

Id been to the Indian Ocean before. Id holidayed in the Seychelles in a placefull of honeymooners not good if youre not on your honeymoon.

Thankfully, during my stay at least, Le Touessrok was a honeymooner-free zone.

My friends were rightLe Touessrok was sublime. I loved it. The people working there are so nice, theweather was generally fabulous and the hotel is stunning quite wonderful.

Le Touessrok is quite self-contained. It has Ile aux Cerfs, its own resortisland, which you can visit via a free ten-minute boat ride from the mainhotel.

But you really have all you want right at the hotel itself.

I dont like sitting on beaches. I like to be off exploring, but Le Touessrok isa resort that pampers you and satisfies your every whim.

Move your hand and theres a butler standing poised to serve you another drink.You can get a bit lazy on this sort of holiday I got very lazy.

Youve heard of couch potatoesI was a sun-lounger potato. I took no exercise and indulged in not theslightest physical activity.

It was bliss for meall I wanted to do was sit on the beach and read. Theres nothing better whenyoure on holiday than to get stuck into a really big book.

I read Alastair Campbells The Blair Yearsa weighty tome which threatened huge excess baggage charges. Ill have to sendAlastair the bill. That said, I really enjoyed it, it was wonderful to get thatsort of political insight.
