Arriving in a new place after dark can be a little bit disorientating BUT it also feels like the night before Christmas because when the Sugar Beach Resort & Spa in Mauritius is your destination, you know that palm trees and blue skies are on the other side of a good night’s sleep. We left Cape Town at 7am before transiting through Johannesburg, collecting some of our #Supababes along the way, and eventually touched down in le république de Maurice after dark. It was then a smooth transfer to the resort, just in time for welcome piña coladas and a delicious French buffet. A true Mauritian welcome!
This morning we had a leisurely start to the day with another glorious buffet at the resort and some location scouting for the week ahead. It also gave the crew a chance to unpack their bags, get all our beautiful bikinis organized, and do a few fittings for our first round of shooting. First up today... The gorgeous Tamara Francesconi! Here she is getting her make up done by our make up artist Renee De Sambento.
Just before lunch on the water’s edge we headed off along Flic en Flac (one of Mauritius’ most beautiful beaches) for some behind the scenes filming for Supabets.
All that was left after that was a breathtaking sunset... Our first sunset shoot was nothing short of sensational and has left the crew in high spirits so we’re off to have dinner and celebratory cocktails before bed because we have a sunrise shoot waiting for us in the morning. We are SO excited for the rest of the week and to show you what we’re creating!
Here are a few more behind the scenes shots from Day 1...
