The air of tropical chic


One of the most-loved hotels in Mauritius re-opened its doors to an eclectic crowd of celebrities, regular guests and prominent  Mauritians; the first people to see one of the most eagerly-awaited hotel refurbishments in years.

An elegant wooden bridge crosses to Frangipani Island, with its fabulous new Givenchy Spa, Matt Roberts Fitness Centre and Bastien Gonzalez Clinic. Barlen’s - the new, ultra-casual beachside restaurant - looks directly over the bay and 130 new suites follow the contours of the island so that every single one has an unimpeded sea view.
The suites are airy split-level layouts with chic off-white walls and porcelain tiled floors.
Six new restaurants and bars offer superb menus, each with its own unique ambience and design features. Free sporting facilities include water skiing, snorkeling trips, Hobie cats, lasers and kayaks, beach volleyball, table tennis and billiards. A brand new 18-hole golf course on the nearby Ile aux Cerfs will be opening on 1 November 2003, open to members of the public as well as guests.
Meanwhile golfers can use two stunning courses at nearby Belle Mare as well as a 2,540m long, par-33, 9-hole golf course designed by Gary Player, located at One&Only Le Saint Géran, sister hotel to One&Only Le Touessrok. Children can disappear into the forest at the exciting Robin Hood-themed KidsOnly, tucked away amongst shady trees.
“Every detail has been thought about. The number one priority at One&Only Le Touessrok is the guest,” a spokepserson said
