Jo-Ann Strauss enjoys family time in Mauritius

Blogger and former Miss South Africa Jo-Ann Strauss visited Club Med La Plantation d’Albion in Mauritius with her husband, Michael Held, and three children for some family reconnection time. 


The 5-trident village is set along the sandy shores on the west cost of Mauritius where the rich coral sea meets 21 hectares of lush garden. The Club Med village is ideal for families with its children’s clubs for children and teenagers aged 2 to 17 and its adults-only zen pool for parents to enjoy some time alone knowing their children are being looked after.

This is the family’s first international holiday as a family of five and they have had a great time.

Life has handed us lemons, but we’ve made lemonade. Resilience is essential. Being adaptable. Knowing that you can have it all. Understanding that dreams without work remain dreams. Having girls means that I have an extra responsibility to lead by example and show them that being a woman is an awesome gift with many different facets. This was our first international holiday as a family of 5 and we’re doing another crazy one soon. Can’t wait! #fashionablefamily #girls #lemons #southafricans #clubmedalbion #clubmedsa @clubmed @clubmedalbion outfits made for us by @mishacollection from @infin8ti_co #mauritius #modernmommy #momlife #ratherbeinmauritius #family #workingmom #mompreneur #womeninbusiness By the way, just noticed my fat roll on my waist. 4 years ago, I might have been more critical. Now, I smile at it and thank my body for being strong enough to carry 3 kids. #thatsme

In her Instagram stories, Jo-Ann shares how the resort and family holiday has given her and Michael to spend time reconnecting with their children one by one. She shares how they have enjoyed the beach, the adults-only areas, and the food.

The Club Med village boasts two restaurants, two bars, a spa, and a number of exciting activities to keep you well-fed, relaxed, and having fun.

Try the golf school where you can improve your skills (or learn to play); the Flying Trapeze school where you can learn the flying trapeze from skilled circus artists; and the archery school where you can learn to shoot a bow and arrow like a pro. You can also choose from a range or water and land sports such as sailing, scuba diving, snorkelling, petanque (boules), table tennis, and more.
