An all-inclusive hotel / resort is a holiday resort that includes at least three meals a day, soft drinks, alcoholic beverages, tips and possibly other services in the price. Many of these holiday resorts also offer various activities (eg sports activities) that are included in the price. The all-inclusive model has its origins in Club Med’s hotel package, which was the first to introduce the concept. Already in the 50’s, the first “Club Med Village” was created in Mallorca and an all-inclusive holiday in remote Mallorca was then considered a great adventure! Today, Club Med is known all over the world and in Mauritius as a leader in the concept of all-inclusive holidays.

Vaccinations and health
We recommend that you review your basic protection against diphtheria, polio and tetanus. Feel free to consult a doctor or local health center for advice well in advance of your trip to Malaysia. Check if you have insurance that covers care in Mauritius and also what it covers in that case. For example, home transport in the event of a more serious accident / illness can be extremely costly. You must also not forget to take your insurance documents with you on the trip. Feel free to bring a small set of “first aid” with patches, headache tablets, etc. Remember to drink a lot in the heat and be aware that the water you drink is either boiled or bottled. Wash your hands often – especially before meals. The pharmacy sells over-the-counter medicines for “tourist stomach” that you can take with you. There may be sea urchins and fish with a poisonous sting in the sea and at the shore, so it is good to put on bathing shoes to protect yourself. Bring sunscreen, sun hat and mosquito repellent.
