Wonderful hotel…

Stayed at this wonderful hotel for five days as part of our 35th Wedding Anniversary. From start to finish it was an unforgettable experience. The food in all the restaurants (including Le Bazar buffet) was top quality. Indian/Mauritian food at Safron was the best we have ever had when on holiday. This is saying something as we never thought we would taste better than the Indian restaurant at Shangri La Rasa Ria in Borneo. The Japanese restaurant Kushi was closed for refurbishment during our stay but the menu was available to anyone who wanted it at the Republik. We did not try it as it`s not our favourite food and as we were there for only five nights there was more than sufficient options for us at the other restaurants.
Our room was a Ocean View Suite in the Frangipani Wing and was stunning. Champagne on arrival, fittings and furnishings were exquisite. Bathroom fittings and toiletries of the highest standard. Mini bar restocked daily by the time we returned from breakfast. Great TV and Bluetooth speaker too. The staff throughout the resort are marvellous and a credit to the Manger Mr Bernhard Haechler, himself a great advert for Shangri- La hotels. Personally I cannot speak highly enough of Adash and Sebastian who worked at the republic Beach Bar during Happy Hour every evening. They looked after us like we were royalty. A great way to end the afternoon watching the sun go down. Vijay was marvellous at a la carte breakfast in Rebublik Beach Bar. The steak and eggs were delicious.
Thank You Mr Haechler for your personal time with my family and I and also the manner in which you treat each and every guest you meet. There are many hotel managers around the world who could learn a few lessons from your good self. For me the crowning glory is the spectacular Ile Aux Cerfs golf course situated on an island about a 12 minute ferry ride away. A memorable experience me for sure and one I was looking forward to for some time. It did not disappoint and a must for any keen golfer who visits the resort. It is by far the most spectacular course I have had the pleasure to play and a great test of golf off the white tees. Many thanks to all the golf course staff, too many to mention by name, for who nothing was too much trouble.
Finally, I am not one for going back to the same place twice as I think the world has so much to offer but I will definitely make an exception and return to Le Touessrok within a couple of years. I really can`t give this place a greater recommendation than that.
