Refined Mauritian Island chic now even more beguiling.
The resort legend known as Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa has had a little holiday of its own. Closed for half of 2015 this darling of the tranquil east coast has undergone a refurbishment to add a contemporary chicness to its former classic quality. The emphasis here is still personalisation and refined luxury – and you’ll find it in profusion. What you will also discover, especially if you are a returning guest, is the addition of plush, fashionable design in the rooms, suites and common areas.
More style in your room
Having undergone a thoughtful renovation your personal, beachfront sanctuary will now incorporate rich, tasteful furnishings and indigenous island touches; it will have large bay windows and may include an expansive balcony or terrace with direct access to the inviting, undisturbed beach. The whole essence of the space reflects the surrounding natural beauty with native colours, materials and textures reflected in their design.
Junior Suite Hibiscus Beach Access
With a position on the ground floor you will find the warm sand just one step from your private balcony; if you have the family with you, imagine their delight at having a beach and ocean as a front garden! From the comfort of your balcony or even your bed you’ll have far-reaching views across the ocean acting as a constant reminder that you are indeed in paradise!
Frangipani Wing – Elite Islet
One of the unique delights of staying at Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa is the resort’s elite islets. Accessed only by bridge the exclusive Frangipani Wing takes hospitality up a level with exceptional personalised service beginning with your effortless in-room check-in. Your privileges continue with a Champagne welcome, club a la carte breakfast, use of an exclusive swimming pool, complimentary minibar and daily sunset cocktails. There are spacious suites for two as well as for families with the two bedroom Deluxe Suite complete with lounge and two secluded terraces.
The Absolute Oceanfront Address
Possibly the country’s leading shoreline properties, the three elite Beach Villas at Le Touessrok have a history of welcoming the affluent, the influential and the royal. Undoubtedly the finest accommodation at the resort your stay begins the second you arrive at the airport, with a personalised VIP welcome indicating the level of hospitality that is to follow. Expect discreet 24-hour butler service, private beaches, pools, gardens and separate entrances; imagine 423sqm of space, lofty ceilings, copious natural light, large soaking tubs, outdoor waterfall showers and sumptuous day beds – 100% bliss!
More to do
Your holiday time is precious which is why you’ll find Shangri-La Specialists on hand to help arrange your unique experiences and with the diversity of sports and activities available here we’d highly recommend you take up the offer of assistance! You’ll find water sports of virtually every type, many of which are complimentary. Practically essential are trips out to Ilot Mangenie (exclusive to Shangri-La’s guests) and Ile aux Cerfs with its spectacular 18-hole golf course, whilst those seeking holistic wellness will find the divine ‘CHI The Spa’ simply irresistible. On land there is a tennis club complete with four floodlit courts and a host of other racquet sports plus archery, yoga and a gym; the whole family will love following nature trails on foot or exploring the beautiful landscape by bicycle – and then there is the rest of Mauritius to consider!
Holidays are synonymous with food and at Le Touessrok this concept is taken very seriously indeed! Let’s look at the sensual, moody Kushi, which features eclectic Japanese cuisine and a sushi bar; you will find a Yakiniku grill at every table and this lively venue also entertains with innovative cocktails and a DJ in the evening. For a brighter, lighter location, le Bazar creates more of a marketplace feel with an Asian and international menu centred around engaging show kitchens. Step into contemporary India at Safron with its open kitchen and romantic ambience, perfect for an exotic evening overlooking the Indian Ocean.
Panoramic Beachfront Entertainment
The Republik Beach Club & Grill offers exclusive eating and drinking with the most sublime of ocean views. Mealtimes are endorsed by a musical urban and reggae soundtrack – enjoy communal eating if you like to mingle - look out for the speciality barbecues, smoke house and terrific infused tequilas.
Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa encompasses pretty much everything that a sophisticated island resort should and this is now enhanced with a more contemporary styling and we love it!
