Exciting news from Mauritius today: Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts has signed a management contract for Le Touessrok, a beachside resort. The group will take over management of the property in August and will reflag and launch the hotel as Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, Mauritius in September 2015 following a renovation.
The announcement follows the signing of a joint venture agreement between Shangri-La’s holding company, Shangri-La Asia Limited, and the resort’s owner, Sun Resorts Limited. Shangri-La Asia has taken a 26 percent stake in the property.
Located on the east coast of Mauritius, the five-star resort has three villas and 200 guestrooms and suites, all of which have sea views. Along with water and land-based activities, guests have access to Ilot Mangenie, a private island with 2 miles of beaches, and Ile aux Cerfs, with an 18-hole, par-72 championship golf course designed by Bernhard Langer.
The resort will continue to operate as Le Touessrok until it is renovated and then reflagged. It will be Shangri-La’s third resort located in the Indian Ocean, joining Shangri-La’s Villingili Resort & Spa, Maldives and Shangri-La’s Hambamtota Resort & Spa, Sri Lanka, which opens summer 2015.
