Hôtel & Lodge magazine, much respected French magazine that offers a unique view on hotels, private retreats and lodges across the world, has awarded the “Best Resort” commendation to Long Beach.

For the fourth edition of these awards, Hôtel & Lodge did a preliminary selection of 25 hotels in 2011 for the “Best Resort” category. The selected hotels all presented a very high profile and the list was then submitted to a jury composed of journalists, photographers and important readers.

In the category where Long Beach was a competitor, three hotels were nominated, namely Long Beach; the Six Senses Con Dao, located on an island in the North of Vietnam; and Kenoa, an ultra-design beach hotel in the Nordeste in Brasil.

Alexandre Espitalier Noël, Commercial Manager of Sun Resorts in France, was officially presented this prize at a gala evening at the Park Hyatt Vendôme in Paris on Thursday 12 January 2012. « It is a great honour for us to note that this commendation for Long Beach brings the hotel at the level of other hotels of the like of Amangiri, the Grand Hôtel du Cap Ferrat or still the Seven,” he says.

In September 2011, Long Beach had already been included in the ‘100 Best Hotels in the World’ 2011 list by The Sunday Times Travel Magazine, Britain’s leading travel magazine. “Only nine months after its opening, Long Beach wins another world class commendation. This contributes to position Long Beach as an exceptional and unique contemporary hotel in Mauritius and the region. I congratulate the Management and team members of Long Beach in their endeavour to transform the hotel into one of the best resorts in the region,” comments Arnaud Martin, Chief Marketing Officer of Sun Resorts.

The 25 hotels nominated in the « Best Resort » category are:
Long Beach, Six Senses Con Dao, Kenoa, O&O the Palm, Four Seasons Seychelles, Evason Ma’In Spring, Vitznauherhof Vital Resorts, Four Seasons Terre Blanche, The Residence (Zanzibar), Sofitel Mogador, La Ventanas al Paraiso, Villas Valriche, Finca Cortesin, Radisson Blu Split, The Oitavos, Al Husn, Six Senses Hideaway Zighy Bay, Six Senses Laamu, Taj Exotica (Maldives), So Mauritius, Raffles, Villas d’Albion, Maradiva, Le Pinarello and Matilde di Canasso Golf

Long Beach
Long Beach brings carefree piazza-style living to the longest and widest stretch of white-sand coastline of any Mauritian resort to date, with a spectacular beachfront 700 metres long and 40 metres wide. The adjacent lagoon, sheltered by a constellation of rare coral formations harbouring a rich underwater fauna, is a snorkelling and water sports paradise.
The new hotel of 255 keys, all with sea views, is a contemporary tropical 5 star resort for active men and women who appreciate culture and style. Long Beach is also a very “family-friendly” hotel, with spacious Family Rooms being offered together with an array of facilities and services. At Long Beach, there is a special feel of space. The area of the property is impressive and the architects and project management team wanted each and every guest to enjoy this unique “breathing & living space”.
The chic contemporary Long Beach designs blend together open-air and indoor living, which is the way the architects wanted the hotel to be. This hotel brings a totally new concept to the hotel environment in Mauritius and in the region. A never-seen-before feel which immediately strikes any guest who is stunned by the 109m² of own beach space available for each room.
The architecture of Long Beach combines tropical interpretations with a contemporary urban style softened by natural forms, local detailing and materials. The gardens, with almost 800,000 plants with 26 varieties of endemic species, are a key feature of the resort which blends seamlessly with the architectural structures and buildings.
In line with Sun Resorts’ environmental positioning, Long Beach is committed to deliver exceptional services whilst taking action to reduce the impact its activities have on the environment.
