It's been resort filming day here at The Oberoi, Mauritius ... and thankfully the weather has been GLORIOUS! The resort is on the north-west of the island and in the distance I can see the capital Port Louis.

The resort opened in April 2001 ... and has just 71 villas & pavilions ... including two Royal Villas ... one of which is MINE! The resort is set in 20 acres of lush garden.

There's a no tipping policy ... fab.

So - early morning drive up to meet the General Manager - Marc Denton ... a thoroughly lovely Swiss chap ... who is very tasteful in his dress sense!

After interviewing him about the property ... by the Ocean ... we headed to my Villa. 650 m2, infinity swimming pool, living room pavilion with sofas & armchairs - fertility symbols on the wall (!), kitchen, whisky, cigars and rather fine champagne, hammock, large bedroom with TWO showers, free standing bath ... and LOADS of personalised stuff - stationery, bath robes ... LOVELY!

The boys are VERY impressed.

Up early tomorrow as we head ONTO the Ocean!

Song of the Day: Love Me Tender/Witchcraft - Elvis and Sinatra (amazing!)

Film of the Day: Out of Africa ... a classic!


Note: photo of two of my babies!
