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
Very calm and relaxing atmosphere, nice and clean environment, very kind staff, taking care of customers requirements and specific needs. Employees are asking if treatment is how it should be, wishes and needs are respected - very professional SPA.
Just got back from amazing 10 night stay and can only endorse excellent reviews about this hotel. We stayed in Hibiscus Junior Suite with great view from first floor of beautiful beach & Indian Ocean. Highlights for us were the friendly staff, private island, wide range of sports & activities, the daily newspaper & the food a la carte breakfast, first class buffet option for both breakfast & dinner, lunch on the beach & Republik Grill for dinner.
Only downside was at dinner we were charged over £4 for water that was free everywhere else which seemed excessive & unnecessary.
Trips to private islands were a real highlight for us both Ilot Mangenie & the private beach at the golf club at Ile aux Cerfs both accessed by a short boat trip & well worth the visit plus turtle island in the hotel’s gardens where there were 3 giant tortoises.
Our fight was at 9.15pm, late checkout was easily arranged & gave us a hassle free last day.
Overall a memorable holiday in a genuine 5 star hotel with facilities, service & beaches to match, highly recommended.
Had a great stay at the Shangri-la Le Touessrok resort! Fabulous service throughout the hotel with very friendly professional staff members. From the clear crystal turquoise water, the Ilot mangenie private island, sunset drinks and an amazing Saturday BBQ at the Republik restaurant, music and live entertainment, water sports activities and a relaxing adult-only pool, couldn’t have asked for more! Thank you for the memorable stay.
