The Shangri-La Within
Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius is a place where life presses pause – it is a place that focuses on the present.

Heralded the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean, the forget-me-never blues of the relentless Mauritian skies and sun-kissed sands make this island nation the Elysium Mark Twain claimed it to be. Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius, is the second jewel from the Indian Ocean to join Shangri-La’s crown after Villingili in the Maldives. Upon arrival, a tour of the resort will reveal an impressive expanse of splendiferous vistas sprawled over an outstanding 34 acres of pristine beachfront ensconced in the eastern coastline. Designed to incorporate the natural environment, the newly renovated resort offers guests the choice between lavish beach villas and three distinct accommodation wings: Coral for tranquillity, Hibiscus for holidaying families and Frangipani for something in between with the added benefit of a panoramic view of the peninsula.

Tropical Indulgence

Boasting a veritable cornucopia of pleasures, the resort will see you off a few shades browner and a few pounds heavier. Tapping into the local contemporary culture scene, Republik Beach Club & Grill is set against the stunning view of Trou d’Eau Douce Bay and its menu is seasonally reinvented to showcase the works of Mauritian artists. Elsewhere in the resort, guests are transported on a gustatory voyage to Asia; Safran is the place to be for high-end Indian cuisine; Kushi, which means Geisha’s comb, is a suave Japanese restaurant with an on-site sushi master. Last but not least, enter the sizzling haze of Le Bazar for a tantalising open buffet of cuisines from the world over, and end the evening at Sega Bar, named after the national dance, for cocktails artfully composed of native flavours.

The gastronomic offerings of the resort are often accompanied by eye-opening cultural and traditional performances that celebrate the melting pot of cultures in Mauritius. Spectacular shows set the evenings ablaze with the finest local talents: flamboyant sega dancers, fire-breathing performers and musicians filling the air with boozy Mauritian blues. For something extra special, let Shangri-La’s Dine by Design service treat you to an unforgettable evening where the staff will sweep you and your special someone away for a romantic dinner by the shore, complete with fireworks in the star-spangled night sky.

Lap of Luxury

A quick ride on a speedboat will take guests to nearby Ilot Mangenie, a small island privately owned by the resort and open exclusively to guests. One can immerse in the pure bliss, undisturbed on this remote little strip of sand descended from heaven itself. In between basking in the glorious sun and paddling in the waist-high waters of the glassy lagoon, feast on grilled lobsters, tiger prawns and calamari with a crunchy Millionaire’s Salad as an appetiser, which stars hearts of palm grown over a course of seven years.

After a day of sunbathing, indulge in a luxurious Coco Massage – one of three themed massages using organic local products to create an authentic Mauritian sense of place. It starts with a sole-soothing Brown Sugar and Coconut Milk Foot Scrub, followed by five minutes of meditation to calm the mind and invigorate the senses. Slathered from tip to toe in hot coconut oil to the beat of relaxing rhythms, unravel under the expert fingers of the spa therapists at CHI, The Spa for an intense spiritual experience. The holistic treatment focuses on the transfer of positive energies and re-calibrating the balances between the mind, body and soul, and it will leave you glowing with contentment and filled with a sense of wellbeing.

Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius is a place where life presses pause – it is a place that focuses on the present. As your stay draws to a close and you dip your toes in the sunset-tinted waters for a last time, you will marvel at the sense of serenity flooding your soul. Providing the warmest service and anticipating the customer’s desires, the resort offers a truly intimate experience which will linger with you for a lifetime.

Something for the explorer:

  • Enjoy a swim to the romantic L’Ile D’Amour (The Island of Love – a man-made islet built in the shape of a heart and owned by the resort).
  • Snorkel the underwater kingdom with the recreation crew who know all the secret fishy ins and outs around.
  • Book a guided bicycle ride and cycle six kilometres to the charming village of Bel Air and explore the stone-faced Roman Catholic Church erected in 1865 as well as the local market.
  • Feeling like doing something different? Archery initiations are available every Sunday for those who haven’t had experience with the bow and arrow.
  • The gym instructors offer bespoke training programmes based on an assessment of individual needs and follow up with their clients even after they leave the resort.
  • Need some time away from the kids with your significant other? The staff at the Kids’ Club will keep the little ones busy for hours.
