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
Our expectations for a summertime holiday is very well met. Especially, Ilot Mangenie island is a paradise to be seen.
Many thanks to all hotel personnel for their kindness and hospitality during our memorable vacation, much appreciated.
Wonderful, peaceful place to stay. Very nice, suit in a modern style. Big bathroom. From our room on the adults island we had a great view to the sea. We had a lot of fun by booking a E-Biketour with Rosario !
This is resort is everything you dream for
Your vacations. I don't even know how to start:
Checking in was very efficient: at our room since we where pretty tired and with a baby when we arrived-5 stars
The room: we stayed at Fangipani wing. It's more expensive but worth it. Spacious room, free mini bar, very comfortable bed, nespresso coffee machine and a astonishing view to the ocean that bought the extra for an wonderful wave sound to our room. Two downsides: the blackout system doesn't exist and the sun gets into the room very early - although the hotel managed to put some curtains after we complaint, they are not the best solution.
The staff: there is in every corner someone smiling and whiling to help. Very well trained, 5 stars service. Room cleaning was the most impeccable I have seen so far in years- flawless. The only team not so friendly was at the republic restaurant.
the chef Kalid from beach bar Margenine Island and chef from bazar restaurant were outstanding in meeting my son's food requirement by preparing special food for him with a big smile in their face- priceless
The breakfast has everything you can possible imagine and at good quality . Someone making fresh juices at demand, great choice of breads, etc etc . Couldn't ask more too
The kids club: very big with all the facilities: team very well trained and very friendly
The hotel atmosphere : lovely! Great shops, in the afternoon at the lobby there is someone making crepes and icecreams, and at night with music and lights the atmosphere is great too !
The beach : plenty of space in the beach around the hotel, but the jewel of te crown is Ille Mangenie: the hotel private island : boat leaving every 20min, 10 minutes ride and you find paradise ! The water, the send, the team serving you, the food, and the nature. Makes you feel the most lucky person in this world for been able to experience that.
The pool: one adults only, another for kids too. Not amazing , but ok. Heated
The spa: very nice atmosphere, the staff and quality of treatments are not aligned
With the rest of the services at the hotel
Any issue , you grab your phone or talk to someone at the staff and it's sorted . They don't say no at any
Indian restaurant and Japanese very good. Buffet at bazar quite expensive, be prepared, as well as everything from drinks to food at the resort- but it's Worth any penny. It was a great choice, I would chose this resort all over again, and I am grateful for the holidays and care they have provided.
