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
9th visit to Mauritius and 6th to LT. we came here in 2012 for our honeymoon and this place continues to get better and better, we love it. The island with Ponnen, Ashok and Johan was exceptional, love seeing those guys again. Thanks to Jocelyn for your boat trips to the best golf course in the world. Course always a test. Food and staff at hotel fantastic, great to see Laura again and visit to villas fab. Recommend Frangipani junior suite on HB, FREE cocktail hour and mini bar, room fantastic with unbelievable views. Hopefully back again soon.
My husband and I travelled with our one year old daughter. All three of us enjoyed the clean beaches and really good food. Especially loved the boat rides to the private island. All their restaurants served excellent food. We weren’t disappointed even a single time. The Indian restaurant Safren especially serves authentic Indian food. Thanks to Chef Ramesh Bundi and his team for their hospitality. To add to it, their spa services were very relaxing thanks to Joshila and Lavina. They also have a nice play area for kids with cooking classes and activities. The resort on the whole is lush green with beautiful beaches and loads of activities when the weather permits.
One of the best trips I've had so far. Amazing staff who welcomed us warmly, attended to perfect room service and gave us the best tips on how to make our stay memorable! Rooms were kept super clean, requests were quickly attended to and we felt pampered by the little attentions.
