You just need to find the right hotel for your family holiday, and if equal measures of relaxing luxury experiences and heart-pumping activities sound like your family’s idea of a good time, there’s no better hotel than the magnificent five-star Long Beach. Located along the untamed east coast of Mauritius, this sensational resort is perfect for “active relaxation” and provides the ultimate backdrop for a memorable holiday in the sun.
Interested to find out what makes Long Beach the ideal hotel in Mauritius for children? Here are the top 5 reasons:
The family-friendly accommodation
The variety of luxury accommodation options at Long Beach ensure that you can choose the right room for you, your family and your needs. While all of the rooms share certain aspects—they are all artfully designed to enhance their modern aspects, have stylish furniture, tasteful pops of colour, an abundance of natural light and are complete with luxury amenities for a comfortable stay—the Family Suite is perfect for those wanting to be close to their kids on a memorable holiday away. After all, holidays are the perfect time to spend some quality time with your precious loved ones.
Each Family Suite has two separate bedrooms as well as bathrooms, ensuring that everyone has enough space while on holiday. Complimentary WiFi, Smart TVs, air-conditioning, luxury amenities and more are provided for a comfortable stay. These suites are located amongst lush, tropical gardens in close proximity to the resort’s exceptional kids club (more on this below!).
Long Beach’s fabled kids and teens clubs
While Long Beach is a mesmerising hotel for loved-up couples and honeymooners, it’s an equally enchanting place for kids of all ages. One of the highlights for little guests is the exceptional on-site Sun Kids Club, which caters to children between the ages of 2-11, with age-appropriate activities and a wealth of exciting experiences created especially for them.
The kids club has its very own pool, kids facilities, special areas for younger children and interesting and fun-filled daily programmes for kids between the ages of 2-11, which can include (depending on your child’s age and the programme for the day) everything from arts and crafts classes and “cooking” lessons (such as pizza-making classes) to tennis games, sports tournaments, water sports activities, nature excursions, movie evenings and much more.
The kids club is open daily from 10:00 to 17:00 and again from 19:00 to 22:00. Here, your little ones can have the holiday of their dreams with new-found friends while you indulge in a little R&R of your own. Babysitters are available on request for a small fee.
The Teenage Club for teens between 12 and 17 is the perfect place for older kids who would rather spend time with some people their own age! The teens club is based in the sports centre and the daily programme offers enticing activities, excursions and entertainment options. Special evenings are also arranged for them such as campfire barbecues, pizza evenings, a disco evening with a DJ and more. They are also able to make full use of the games rooms and outdoor facilities.
While expertly prepared sushi and Japanese delicacies at Hasu might sound like your ideal meal, it’s probably not your little one’s idea of fun. Another phenomenal reason Long Beach is the ultimate family hotel in Mauritius is that they have an array of kid-friendly menus and meal choices available on request. Dinners can be enjoyed at the kids club with other children their own age (while you make the most of the restaurants around the piazza) and lunch can be arranged at the kids club (with a supplement). On request, even baby food can be arranged. At Long Beach, you can rest assured that your precious children are eating appropriate (and tasty) meals while on holiday in paradise.
The Long Beach hotel itself
With a seemingly endless, powder-fine beach, reef-protected lagoon, vibrant tropical surrounds, endemic trail and more, Long Beach really is a wonderful playground for you and your family. Build sandcastles on the beach, observe incredible marine life in the lagoon together, explore the grounds or partake in one of the many activities available—Long Beach is a magical place for children and an incredible hotel that will inspire long-lasting memories with your most favourite people in the world.
The possibility for unique excursions and experiences
By choosing Long Beach as your home base in Mauritius, you also have the opportunity for some unique excursions and experiences which your tiny tots are sure to absolutely love. From complimentary glass-bottom boat trips at Long Beach to guided tours of the property's endemic trail, special kiddies treatments at the Cinq Mondes Spa and novel activities (such as archery or wall climbing), there’s so much here for them to experience.
From Long Beach, you and your kids can also enjoy road trips to Port Louis and the Casela Nature Park or a memorable day out at the fabulous Leisure island portion of lle aux Cerfs (complimentary boat transfers from the Pointe Maurice Jetty to Ile aux Cerfs are offered to Long beach guests)—the options are endless. One thing is certain: a holiday spent with your children at Long Beach will be filled with experiences and moments that will turn into Timeless Memories, never to be forgotten.
Does a holiday at Long Beach sound like something your little ones would relish? Then book your stay at Long Beach, make the most of the Family Offer—with benefits that include free accommodation and meals for two children under the age of 12 sharing with their parents—and enjoy a holiday of a lifetime with the people who matter most in magnificent tropical surrounds.
