Shangri-La Le Touessrok opens in style
Shangri-La Le Toussrok Resort and Spa was officially opened at a gala event on 11th December in the presence of the Prime Minister of the Republic of Mauritius, Sir Anerood Jugnauth and other dignitaries. In a night celebrating Mauritian culture, the glittering inauguration witnessed a specially commissioned performance, staged by more than 30 artists, in front of 580 guests.
Guests were able to experience a wide range of festivities with circus style performances, and imaginary creatures popping up everywhere. A light show culminating in a fireworks display dramatically marked the rebirth of a Mauritian icon.
The evening concluded with the internationally acclaimed music label Hed Kandi with superstar DJ Carl and Peyton, resident vocalist for Blue Marlin, Ibiza, performing Gospel & Disco House music on the beach, where guests revelled until late hours.
Located on the east coast of Mauritius in one of the island’s most breathtaking bays, Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa has been extensively remodelled; its 200 rooms and suites offer infinity views across the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and guests have exclusive access to Ilot Mangenie, a private island.
Located on the beach and facing the ocean, all accommodation in the three wings – Coral, Hibiscus and Frangipani – have a private balcony or terrace to encourage outdoor lounging. Three beach villas are designed to instill a sense of peace and privacy. With 24-hour butler service, the villas feature a separate entrance, three bedrooms, an infinity pool and private beach access. For more see: www.shangri-la.com.
