Here are 3 things happening in Mauritius this week!

1) Rom-com “Resort to Love” filmed on location in Mauritius, starring Christina Milian and produced by Alicia Keys will be available on Netflix from 29th July.

Netflix’s new romantic comedy, Resort to Love starring Christina Milian and produced by Alicia Keys will air globally on 29th July.

Described as “a vacation for the eyes, heart, and soul” by the film’s director, Steven Tsuchida, Resort To Love follows Erica (Milian), an aspiring singer who lands a resident gig at a posh island resort and spa in Mauritius. Unbeknownst to Erica, her ex-fiancé Jason (Jay Pharoah) is getting married at the same location, and Erica gets roped in to performing at the wedding. As she tries to keep her past relationship a secret from Beverly, the bride-to-be, Erica begins to fall for Jason once again, and Jason’s brother Caleb (Sinqua Walls) strives to prevent them from rekindling their romance. With Jason caught in the middle of a complicated and hysterical love triangle, who will meet him at the end of the aisle: Beverly or Erica?

Resort to Love was shot last summer on location in Mauritius, presumably working around the COVID-19 pandemic filming restrictions.
