August 18, 2015 - The countdown to the unveiling of Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius on 1 November is underway, with the extensive six-month renovation of the legendary Le Touessrok nearly complete and pop-up events being held in London, Paris and Dubai in late September and early October set to showcase the resort's experiential offerings and provide a taste of paradise with Mauritian musicians, artists and flavours flown in for the occasion. 

Located on the east coast of Mauritius in the stunning Trou d'Eau Douce Bay, the 200-room Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort offers #nofilter required Indian Ocean views from all guestrooms, suites and villas; talcum-white sand beaches; and Ilot Mangénie, a secluded private island reserved exclusively for guests that features 3.5 kilometers (about 2.2 miles) of pristine beach, a stylish beach club and on-island butlers. 

For over 40 years, cosmopolitan jet-setters from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas have revelled in this paradise day and night. Now, after significant investment, the resort has been re-imaged, bringing together the renowned hospitality of Shangri-La with the legendary Mauritian island chic of Le Touessrok Resort. 

"Our vision is to create a private hideaway that can be our guests' own personal paradise," said Gabriele Lombardo, general manager of Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa. "In an always-on world, our senses are constantly barraged. We want to give guests space for imagination and serendipitous discovery." 

As part of the major renovation, the resort's tropical bohemian chic has been revitalized and enhanced by vibrant contemporary styling referencing Mauritius' diverse cultures and dramatic landscape of volcanic mountains, lush rainforests and blue lagoons, as well as Shangri-La's Asian sophistication and heritage. 

The use of organic and natural materials along with touches of European glamour enrich the intimate ambiance of the resort, which has the feel of a Mediterranean-style village. Five new dining and bar concepts - such as Republik Beach Club & Grill, which features Mediterranean cuisine and barbecue specialties and a lively bohemian beach lounge, and Sega, a rum and Tiki bar where exciting local talents play reggae, seggae, jazz and the blues - burnish fan favorites such as Safran, the resort's acclaimed Indian restaurant. 

In addition to its two pools and extensive aquatic and land-based activities, there is the T-Club for children aged between 4 and 11 and an Active T-Club for those 12 to 17 years old. Guests also have access to the 18-hole, par 72 championship golf course, which was designed by two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer and is located a few minutes away by boat on Ile aux Cerfs. 

Open for Imagination 

The guest experience at Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa is entirely personal, with on-island Shangri-La Specialists available to custom-design activities to meet guests' interests.
