Where's the best place you've ever stayed?
Le Tousserok in Mauritius was undeniably the best. I had my own Junior Suite and the view from my balcony was incredible, looking out to the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean on to the hotels stunning private island. The service in the hotel was impeccable, the dining experience was unforgettable and the Givenchy Spa was luxurious and the treatments amazing. My senses were truly exhilarated here. A magnificent property.
What's your oddest travel moment?
In Le Touessrok I was in the restaurant having breakfast and had fillied up my bowl with cornflakes and milk. As I turned to walk back to my table a person appeared in front of my and startled me and I spilt some milk on them. This person who turned out to be Noel Gallagher a famous British indie rock singer. I was mortified and starstruck, it was the weirdest moment. I apologised and didn't acknowledge that I knew who he was, as he was on a family holiday and didn't want to bother him. Luckily and surprisingly he was calm and simply said 'Don't worry love, you're alright' and got his own cornflakes. Bizarre.
Have you had a perfect travel moment?
I was recently in Australia and had the pleasure of snorkelling the Great Barrier Reef. It was unbelievable, the colours, the different species of fish. I kept having to come up for air and fix my mouthpiece because I kept gasping for joy. As I was swimming a massive turtle appeared, like Crush in ‘Finding Nemo'. The turtle swam around me so I froze and followed him until he swam deeper into the ocean. I couldn't have asked for a more perfect moment.
What are your suitcase essentials?
Elizabeth Arden 8 hour cream. This is miracle cream, seriously. Upon boarding a flight to Mexico, I could feel a cold sore coming. There is nothing worse and I tend to get them while I am away. My friend had the cream and advised me that it helps with any skin irritations. I simply put some on as the plane took off, had a sleep and would you believe 8 hours later the cold sore was gone. This product also helps with minor burns, chapped lips and has now introduced a sun defence system. My partner even has some!
Where's next on your wishlist?
Too many! Book Hawaii a lot - would love to travel there! Also, New Orleans, Memphis and Nashville.
"Lauren was extremely helpful, polite and friendly. She had been to Mauritius last year so was able to give me first-hand knowledge. She made booking our visit to Mauritius for our Golden Wedding, a joy. She has continued to be supportive over the phone with my questions."
