Travel: Le Touessrok

Often referred to as the foremost luxury resort in the world, Le Touessrok hotel in Mauritius is the height of nonchalant, contemporary elegance. Nestled on a picturesque stretch of sandy coast, looking out over tranquil Trou d’Eau Douce Bay, this five star resort with its Givenchy spa, personal butler service, and Bernhard Langer designed 18-hole championship golf course located on the surrounding Ile aux Cerfs, certainly surpasses the expectations of the most judicious of guests.

Apart from suites and rooms groomed and outfitted for royalty, the resort prides itself on their three discrete oceanfront villas – each with an infinity swimming pool, tropical gardens, and private entrance. The interiors are bright and undisturbed with large windows, and arched stilted ceilings. The interior designers working on the villas spent weeks making the bathrooms entirely extraordinary by adding sculptural stone bathtubs and French doors that lead out to private walled gardens and outdoor waterfall showers. Each villa has its own private chef, and waiting staff, as well as a personal manager, who arranges any individual guest requests.

The Givenchy Spa is certainly a favorite – understated, yet elegant and luminous. A must-try (and a certain celebrity’s go-to) is their Power Youth Face Revitalizer, a skin-energizer that reinvigorates and recharges, leaving the complexion looking fresh and luminous. It completely restores the skin’s original vitality and tone, partly thanks to an array of magical pomades by LVMH Laboratories, developed specifically for Givenchy.

Le Touessrok is truly luxury redefined, an influential, almost mythical Mauritian experience – a tropical episode leaving one tranquil, comfortable, and possibly slightly younger.
