A six-month renovation has transformed the iconic Le Touessrok resort into the latest star in the Shangri-La constellation. The 200-room property is set on the pristine east coast of this island nation, facing tranquil Trou d’Eau Douce Bay. Expect the brand’s Asian sensibility to infuse every aspect of the property, from the service to the spa to the cuisine, though much of the design salutes the country’s rich history and French-influenced style. The sunny, airy rooms are decked out in soothing, ocean-inspired tones and decorated using indigenous Mauritian materials and natural textiles. Dine out in style at one of four restaurants: Kushi, a sexy Japanese dining room with a master sushi chef and a yakiniku grill on every table; Le Bazar, a market-inspired restaurant serving Asian and global cuisine; Safran, an opulent spot for classic Indian dishes; and Republik, a beachfront grill for barbecued delicacies with a side of reggae music. Guests can while away the day under a perfect blue sky on the resort’s own private island, Ilot Mangénie, just offshore, where beach butlers will attend to your every need, or play a round of golf on Ile aux Cerfs, a championship golf course designed by Bernhard Langer, set beside a shimmering lagoon.
In the Area
The island of Mauritius offers plenty of diversions for all ages. Take mini-Jetsetters to the Crocodile and Giant Tortoise Nature Reserve in the southern part of the island, where they can get up close with the exotic reptiles, birds and butterflies on display. Near the capital, St. Louis, explore the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam Botanical Garden, also known as the Pamplemousse Garden, where you can admire the famous giant lily pads, among other botanical marvels. Black River Gorges National Park is a stunning wild place with many miles of walking trails through lush jungle. Get a taste of traditional Mauritian life in the village of Mahébourg, where the market is open every day but really comes into its own on Mondays. Shop for locally made silks and other textiles, then sample some Mauritian street food at one of the food stalls, which dispense snacks like gâteaux piments, dhal puris and biryanis.
How to Get There
This is undoubtedly the best holiday we have had. From the moment we arrived at the hotel to be greeted with a gong and music and dancing 💃
Everyone had big smiles and so so welcoming. Check-in was so easy and complimentary drinks, all our luggage was taken care of and straight to our rooms. It is just like paradise here, the prestine beaches the beautiful views from our room we had on the beach. The hotel itself is amazing but what made it very special to us were the people, the catered for our every needs and so happy all the time nothing was too much trouble. Would like to thank Simla for making our room special every day and for the beautiful Swan she had made us on our last day xx The food in all the restaurants was delicious and five star 🌟 and the Live music every night in the Saga Bar was amazing too. But undoubtedly the the highlight of our holiday was meeting Rishi (Director of Security) we became very good friends and will never forget him. We would like to give a very special big thankyou to all the staff and Resident Manager Naji Esta at the Shangri la Mauritius for everything and making our dream holiday perfect in every way. We will never forget you Rishi and a very big thankyou for everything. See you all next year.
The Hibiscus aisle is very nice and we have appreciated every moment at this hotel.
Many thanks to the great squad making the room (Dev Kumar, Isabelle, Ally & Messaline).
Having lunch at Mangenie is not to be missed. Do try the excellent pizzas made by Chef Khalid who is very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast are still lovely and the team (Chantal, Orine) is the best to be found in Mauritius.
God willing, we shall definitely return!
Truly blown away, sorry it took us some time to write this up. We had the most relaxing of holidays! This resort is top notch, the food is divine, cocktails a pure bliss and the staff is just perfect! Thanks again for making our stay so wonderful!
We look forward to being back again soon!
Last day, leaving with a heavy heart as we have had a most agreeable stay here at Le Touessrok.
From the moment we arrived with a warm friendly greeting and welcoming drink, there has been little to fault with regard to the level of hospitality.
Courteous staff are extremely well trained and with senior management clearly visible, rest assured that you will be looked after to the highest order.
Special praise must be given to Thierry - Assistant F&B Manager - for his professional and personal attitude.
He shows a real understanding of what is required to reach the top of his chosen path and fully expect him to continue to move onwards and upwards in his career.
At the other end of the career scale, for she has only just began, the Intern Karen also demonstrated a willingness and great
Customer skills- a definite star of the future.
I would be remiss to not give my thanks to the culinary team who were friendly and approachable ( this is not usually the case, and trust me, I should know!)
From housekeeping through to the reception and concierge desks, our every request has be fulfilled- well done to everyone.
A resort such as this could sell itself on its location and amenities alone, but coupled with the staff here, it truly ranks as a world class destination.
We look forward to our return.

It was a well spent day at the Shangri-La Mauritius hotel. Having travel all around the world, it was the first time I see staff being proactive. I would like to thank Jean Philippe from recreation Centre for assisting in the physical activities as well as Sunil for recommending me to choose the hotel.
Food at the Bazaar was tasty. My favorite dish remained the grilled lamb!
I will definitely recommend to my peers.
