For many, Christmas is a time of warm, mulled wine, novel Christmas-themed jumpers, warm fires and icy weather. And while the idea of a snow-filled Christmas is wonderfully romantic, it also means absolutely freezing weather, dangerous roads, layers of clothing and potentially hours of shovelling snow from driveways! Which is why a Christmas in the sun is such a fantastic alternative, and if you swap the snow for the sand in Mauritius, you’ll very quickly realise that a Christmas in the sun can certainly be as magical as one in the snow.
This festive season, the gorgeous and contemporary Long Beach is set on creating unforgettable experiences and remarkable offerings to ensure that their guests have the trip of a lifetime this December. This festive season guests don’t only have the option of lounging by one of the dazzling pools, indulging in culinary treats at one of the five exemplary restaurants, embracing the active lifestyle activities or sipping their favourite tropical cocktail as they take in the gorgeous views—there’s so much more on offer.
