Long Beach Mauritius manages to be vast but still charming as rooms and suits have a ‘beach living’ design with spacious green and white décor and chic bathrooms complete with fluffy bathrobes. While floor to celling windows let in that morning light and beds are so vast that catching up on sleep will never have been easier.
The main hotel is based around the black and white tiled piazza, shaded by palm trees. Wander off along one of the many paths and take your pick of the main swimming pool complete with floating beds or the amazing infinity pool, a secret escape that overlooks the resort.
The two beach bars, Shores and Tides, offer an afternoon retreat from the hot sun where you can sit with salt on your skin and sand in your hair sipping on fruit infused cocktails and snacking on fresh gazpacho and local fish dishes. Yes please.
