The stratospheric rise of tourism in Mauritius may be easing, but that doesn’t mean the island paradise is going the way of the dodo.
In addition to 171 guestrooms and 20 suites, the retreat offers two ultra-exclusive presidential villas with private terraces and water views worthy enough for real presidents (Mauritius counts Nelson Mandela among its chic-set) and men who have played presidents (that would be Michael Douglas).
And though there’s an endless list of water sports (think snorkeling, diving, kite-surfing), you can also explore the island’s terrestrial treasures on tours of Mauritius’ exotic interiors.

The swimming pool may be modest, but its position on the island's loveliest stretch of coast in the north, near the lively resort of Grand Baie, makes this an irrelevance.
Protected by a reef, Mauritius is surrounded by water that is warm, calm and emerald-green, so the sea swimming is superb.
The Royal Palm is far too grand to have any truck with concepts, gimmicks or even much in the way of facilities except a gym, a Maghreb-style Decléor spa, squash and tennis courts (whites must be worn), a 'miniclub' (where guests can deposit their children), water-skiing and pedalos.

 Le Défi Media Group - The Air Mauritius scandal
The Air Mauritius scandal is the embodiment of all that is corrupt in Paradise Island and the tentacles of corruption reached the very heart of our democratic institutions.
I have often criticised our legal system for appearing to be too cavalier with the notions of justice and for the many imperfections that blight court procedures to such an extent that many cases take decades to achieve complete resolution.
The Air Mauritius scandal is a terrible indictment of our constitutional obligation to maintain the principles of an Etat de Droit; so far, the only person who has been punished is the very individual who blew the whistle on this scandal and accepted his guilt from the beginning.

The close association of the United States and Australia during the War was such that when President Franklin Delano Resevelt died on 12 April 1945, Prime Minister Curtin announced that Australia would honour his memory and that association by establishing a special collection of American material in the Commonwealth National Library.
The objective of the collection, stated the Prime Minister, was to document the rise and development of the American civilization in all its aspects, to an extent that would encourage understanding of the United States, its problems and its achievements.
Its coverage included printed books, microcopy of a vast mass of manuscripts of presidents, public figures and of government archives, of newspapers and of publications prior to 1820, and maps, films and music.
