I stayed at the bubble lodge for my birthday in 2020 during the COVID lockdown which as it turned out made it even more special.
We were greeted on the East Coast of the island and taken by boat across to Ile Aux Cerfs where we were introduced to our private butler who would be looking after us during our stay. From there we were driven by golf cart to the reception area which is the Ile Aux Cerfs golf course clubhouse and finally taken down to our bubble lodge on the beach.
Staying in a bubble lodge had been an ambition of mine for a number of years and I wasn't disappointed. It is truly magical sleeping under the stars and even better in the safety (away from mosquitos!) of your bubble that provides all the creature comforts you would expect in and good quality hotel.
We enjoyed a meal on the beach at the beach bar where the staff had lit small fires lining the water's edge. What made our stay even more special was on the first evening we were amongst eight other guests on the island but the following evening, on my birthday night, we had the whole island to ourselves and as the staff, all take the boat back home leaving just the two of us plus a security guard. Very Robinson Crusoe!

ENSO, LA GAULETTE
ENSO is the creation of Rok Flander an ex World Champion snowboarder from Slovenia that has taken to that took to the Mauritian surf many years ago. The surf vibe is immediatley evident when you arrive at Enzo's which is above a surfer shop in La Gaulette shopping centre. This is very good quality comfort food that you can enjoy time and time again and the theme that runs through the ENSO/Wapalapam Bar Restaurants, rightly, has agained quite a following.
My favourite dishes are the Lamb Bunny Chow which is a hollowed out small loaf of bread filled with an aromatic stew/curry/casserole. The crispy Salt & Pepper Calamari, Chilli Prawns and the Fish Curry. The fact is, I haven't been disappointed with anything that I have tried at ENSO's so, I
will progess through the menu on an on going basis!
