There was lots of new luxury hotel buzz at Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas. One of the hotels we’re most excited about is the Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort & Spa - which is scheduled to open on November 1 in Mauritius after a major renovation project. The legendary resort was closed earlier this spring, and will now be reflagged as the Shangri-La brand assumes management.
Along with the refurbishment of all public areas and the 200 water-facing guestrooms, the project imported the Shangri-La spa and restaurant concepts. One of the stand-out features of the hotel is access to the Ilot Mangénie, a private island offshore which is exclusively available to Shangri-La guests. Also nearby: The 18-hole championship golf course on the Ile aux Cerfs. The resort is expected to attract families with kids, and there are also extensive conference facilities.
Access to the resort is a one-hour car ride from Sir Seewoosagar Ramgoolam International Airport. There will also be helicopter service to the resort.
