The perfect blend of an authentic Mauritian flair and distinctly modern design elements, the gorgeous five-star Long Beach is the ultimate retreat for guests looking to balance the laid back island lifestyle with thrilling activities. Situated on the exotic east coast of Mauritius, this magnificent resort provides guests with a huge selection of culinary options, signature experiences and incredible activities (both land- and water-based that include everything from tours of the endemic garden to an array of water sports); it’s a sensational choice for the intrepid traveller who enjoys adventures with a touch of luxury.
Sophisticated rooms, many of which are situated mere metres from the powder-fine beach and glittering lagoon, are designed with all the modern comforts in mind and every need is catered for, while state-of-the-art facilities allow guests to indulge in a session at the gym, a much-needed spa day or a day spent lounging by one of the incredible pools.
On top of being a remarkable hotel - one unlike any other in Mauritius - Long Beach has been honoured over the years with some special awards. Here’s a list of all the awards received by the hotel:
Top Affordable Honeymoon Hotel/Resort (International) - WeddingSutra Honeymoon Awards
The honeymoon is an extremely important trip for a newly-married couple. It marks the first adventure experienced together as man and wife. It’s also a special celebration of your union, which is why it’s vital to choose the right destination. In 2018, India’s leading bridal media brand, WeddingSutra, hosted their WeddingSutra Honeymoon Awards, which saw Long Beach named one of the five Top Affordable Honeymoon Hotel/Resorts for 2018.
Long Beach was up against some tough competition but managed to secure their award thanks to a host of esteemed judges. To be named amongst some of the best hotels in the world is an extraordinary honour.
Food Waste Champion & Gold Certification—Travellife
Sustainable and eco-friendly practices are extremely important not only to Long Beach but all of the hotels in the Sun Resorts portfolio. These incredible establishments do their utmost to ensure that they are taking measures to lessen their impact on the earth at every possible opportunity. From an endemic tropical garden and energy-saving light bulbs to recycling initiatives, an organic vegetable and herb patch as well as a role in community projects, Long Beach is doing what they can to impact the earth positively and setting a fabulous example for other hotels, guests and their staff to follow.
What’s more, their efforts definitely haven’t gone unnoticed. In 2018 Long Beach was recognised as the number 1 Food Waste Champion by Travelife and was also awarded a Gold Certification. Travelife has been set up in order to both acknowledge and assist establishments in the tourism for the initiatives already in place and to further their efforts.
While the Food Waste Champion award was given for their innovative ways of utilising and minimising their waste (and drastically reducing their carbon emissions and allowing them to save incredible amounts of water), the Travelife Gold Certification, which is valid until 2020, recognises them for a number of accomplishments regarding sustainability. Being so highly regarded by Travelife certainly nods at Long Beach’s remarkable efforts, and places them in a league of their own.
Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Hotel—World Golf Awards
Long Beach is known for many things; it’s sensational, modern architecture, its sublime stretch of beach, it’s signature hospitality, and it’s affiliation to Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club (designed by Bernhard Langer) and Anahita Golf Course (designed by Ernie Else), making it an excellent golf hotel for avid fans. At the 2017 World Golf Awards, Long Beach was given the extraordinary honour of being crowned the Indian Ocean’s Best Golf Hotel, despite stiff competition in the luxury tourism sector. This award, which was voted for by professionals working closely with golf tourism and travel, puts Long Beach’s overall excellence in the spotlight and marks it as a top golfing destination, one which holds novel experiences at its core.
Silver Accreditation—EarthCheck Certification
As mentioned above, Long Beach constantly does its utmost to ensure it is as sustainable and eco-friendly as possible with their array of projects, practices and programmes. Their commitment to sustainable and earth-conscious efforts has led them to be acknowledged by EarthCheck, as with the rest of the hotels in the Sun Resorts group, with their EarthCheck Silver Accreditation in 2017, which is an impressive achievement, based on strict rules and qualifying criteria. With a passionate commitment to ensuring they become more sustainable with every year that passes, Long Beach, along with its sister resorts, is working hard to upgrade this accreditation—who knows what the future will hold for this innovative and sustainable hotel.
Certificate of Excellence - TripAdvisor
For avid adventurers and jet setters, TripAdvisor is sure to be a well-known platform. This incredible site allows travellers to rate establishments based on a number of factors, but ultimately, based on their overall experience. This crucial peer-review platform can help to separate the wheat from the chaff when booking a magical holiday away, and it gives insight into other travellers’ opinions of establishments which range from resorts to restaurants and tourist attractions. It’s for this very reason why the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence is a highly coveted and well-respected award.
Long Beach has had the enormous honour of receiving this award—which takes time and a considerable number of consistently high ratings—not once, but multiple times over the years; more accurately, Long Beach has enjoyed this honour every year since 2015. Enjoying high ratings for its location, service, cleanliness and value, it’s clear that guests think highly of their holidays spent at Long Beach.
All the awards received by the hotel clearly place Long Beach in the upper echelon of luxury hotels and mark it as a sensational place to spend your holiday in paradise.
