“If a hotel could be described as 'fresh', this'd be the one!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2011

I've been to a few hotels in Mauritius now but as soon I turned into the hotel complex, I sensed that Long Beach was going to be something different; something new. Before I arrived at the main lobby area, I had already gathered a sense that this place was going to be unique.
Surrounded with a vast array of flora and fauna and peppered with contemporary sculpture, Long Beach offers more than an incredible 700 metre beach. In fact, it's more of a 'hub' for whatever you want!
'Fresh' - I think from it's design. The way Long Beach has been thought and mapped out. It just works! The heart of Long Beach is focussed on it's Piazza. Here's where you'll find all the bars/restaurants. I was amazed to learn that they're connected by a series of underground tunnels, giving easy access for the staff only. Facilities then spread from here out towards pool areas (main pool with its own bar), until eventually you reach the accommodation. Rooms are stretched away from the centre, therefore offering a quiet location wherever you are. I had a Superior Beachfront room (all located on ground level) with direct access to the beach. Rooms are equipped with UK, 3 pin-plug sockets - which was just as well as I had forgotten my adapter.
There's something for everyone here. For the younger ones - kids & teens are entertained from their individual clubs. For those who are more active - there's a complete activity centre, near the fully equiped gym (archery, cycling, football, jogging, tennis, yoga and evening a climbing wall and many more). There are cabanas around the pool areas - great for couples and honeymooners. A whole range of watersports are available directly from Long Beach's boathouse.
Nightlife is focussed in/around the Piazza area. At one end, there's Bombora nightclub while at the other is 'Shores' (cocktail and lounge bar). The hotel frequently hosts live entertainment, consisting of local bands, singers & dancers to acrobatics.
I found all the hotel staff so, so friendly. All of them were happy to help with any query or point me in the right direction.
So overall, would I go back? Absolutely!
Is there anything I could pick fault with? Not really - just that the hotel is so new some of the plants need to establish themselves.
I honestly came away as if I'd just discovered a new toothpaste!

I stayed here for 4 nights on business from 21st-25th May and was very impressed with the facilities offered.The hotel had just recently opened, and although the Spa was not quite finished, all the other facilities were up and running.

The lobby is very funky, modern and almost Mediterranean in styling, with a real feeling of space, invigorating a relaxed feel upon arrival.Unlike some 5* hotels, it is not stuffy or pretentious and the relaxed vibe to the hotel continues throughout.
I stayed in a large Superior Beach Front room which was directly on the beach, with its own terrace.Perfect place to watch the sunsets!

Room facilities were good with Ipod docking station and massive 42" tv with a good choice of International and English speaking stations.The free Wifi was a real bonus and internet connection was good at all times.It was nice to have a premium tea/coffee making machine as well.

The long sandy beach was very easy to access and the watersports centre was well managed, offering a good choice to choose from , at reasonable prices.Snorkelling from the shore was possible, and you did not have to venture far to see a great variety of fish, although there did seem to be a fair amount of seaweed at times.

Local fishermen were actually standing in the waters off the beach everyday, but this did not spoil my enjoyment of the beach area.Local beach vendors were few and far between, and were always polite and actually did take no for an answer.

Shores and Tides Bars well well stocked with a good cocktail menu to choose from.Shores in particular had a real "Cafe Mambo" vibe to it, with soft Ibiza style music playing in the evenings, and big comfy sofas to lounge in.

Large freeform pool had lots of areas to relax in although my favourite was the infinity pool on the terrace overlooking the ocean.They even had in pool jacuzzis, which were very effective and not just gimmicky.

It was also nice to be offerred two beach towels without having to ask.....nice touch!

Food quality throughout all the restaurants was of a high standard and service levels were very good.Can recommend Hasu the a la carte restaurant, and best restaurant at the resort in my opinion.

The Piazza where all the restaurants are located was a great spot to watch the evening entertainment, and provided a real central focus to the resort.

All in all, a high quality 5* modern resort, that wll appeal to young couples,honeymooners and families alike, and maybe even older couples who are young at heart.

Room Tip: Ask for room closest reception/piazza

I stayed here with fellow travel colleagues in May. The hotel is brand new and the furnishings and furniture are immaculte. The rooms are spacious, cool and have evrything you could need. the piazza dining and entertainment area is great as it creates a communal space for you to make new friends and feel part of the hotel community. the staff are helpful and friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
The beach is beautiful with plenty of room to sunbathe. The water sports centre offers many motorised and non motorised sports to suit everybody. I would recommend this hotel for weddings (you can choose where to get married from several location), honeymoons, groups and couples. A 5 star property with a relaxing and comfortable ambience.
