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
Beautiful resort with all comforts you are looking for at this type of place. We were amazed by the consistently attentive and friendly staff in all parts of the resort. The only little negative from our side was that the variety of restaurants is somewhat limited. Make sure you book your dinner reservations in advance as there is high demand for the a la carte restaurants. All in all, we were very satisfied with our stay and would love to come back.
Beautiful hotel with a perfect service. Especially the room service was the best we ever had! Thank you Anisha!
A beautiful landscape and a fantastic golf course, not easy to play.
We miss nothing at all.
Requested Service in advance, which was well organised, incredible welcome when we arrived. Superb room and service throughout our stay, great food and drinks. Golf course is an experience like no other (apart from my awful playing on it), views and trip across bay is breathtaking. We had a couple of minor issues and the true mark of the service is how they were dealt with and the Shangri-La excelled.
The staff are like all Mauritians, incredibly friendly and welcoming.
Are there any negatives? Not really, although a suggestion would be to make a bit more of the Mauritian culture. Cocktail hour on the beach has poor music, yet there are a group of dancers that come round some nights at Dinner, get them out during this evening slot. The same applies during the day, there is more fun had out on the Island beaches that could be a guide to the afternoons on the beach in the resort, but these are minor suggestions in an otherwise fabulous holiday. We will be back.
Excellent services. Perfect for relaxation. The room was just like the pictures showed and very clean.The resort offers everything you might have forgotten at home (flip flops, beach bag, after sun lotion etc) and makes you feel very comfortable.
Best Choice! Beside the state of the art hotel you have this lovely beach directly in front of you. the staff spoils you with whatever you want. on the beach they bring you a ice box with water and freshly made fruit sorbet. its calm and perfect to relax. I can only recommend this hotel and the price is fair for what you get. just perfect!
