Revamped oceanfront sanctuary on an idyllic bay with a private island, global cuisine and a lavish ayurvedic spa
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.
