A World of Tranquillity at Long Beach’s Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat

November 13 2017

A World of Tranquillity at Long Beach’s Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat

The spectacular Long Beach unfurls along the breathtaking and untamed Belle Mare on the East Coast of Mauritius. Phenomenal stretches of pristine beaches melt into tranquil topaz waters that are nothing short of picture-perfect. The gorgeous contemporary, island-chic resort centres on the unique concept of “active relaxation”—where the huge array of exhilarating land- and water-based activities offered are balanced perfectly with activities centred on holistic wellbeing. At the core of Long Beach’s wellbeing practices lies the spa—the quintessential place to realign mind, body and spirit. If you are heading to Mauritius, a treatment at the Long Beach Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat is an absolute must, here’s why:

 

It falls under the exclusive Cinq Mondes brand

The spa at Long Beach is certainly no ordinary spa; it’s a Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat. This phenomenal Parisian brand is known for its luxurious treatments and stellar products which draw on powerful healing traditions and beauty rituals from around the world. The Cinq Mondes products are of the highest quality and sensorial appeal and are used liberally for the ultimate pamper experience during treatments influenced by ancient civilizations and modern techniques to ensure guests are able to embrace the healing and calming benefits of each treatment fully.

 

It’s a wonderfully secluded

The beautifully designed spa at Long Beach has been specifically created to be a tranquil oasis, situated apart from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the vibey resort. Nestled in a secluded area of the property, the spa is seemingly surrounded by water—from the free-flowing water features in the architectural design itself to the small pond on its periphery—and imbued with a sense of calm and tranquillity. The ultimate retreat for weary travellers and those looking for a space to unwind, the Cinq Mondes Spa is peaceful perfection.

 

It’s more than a spa; it’s a wellness retreat

As the name suggests, the Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat transcends any normal hotel spa, offering basic treatments you can find anywhere else in the world. Here, the focus is holistic wellbeing, where mind, body and spirit are truly in harmony. Apart from the extensive list of body treatments, facials and beauty services, the spa has been masterfully created to be a holistic retreat, with a series of detox rituals as well as yoga and Qi Gong classes which are offered on the spa’s secluded wooden pavilion overlooking the pond, offered to ensure lasting inner peace and to promote overall health and wellness.

 

It’s not only incredibly beautiful, it’s wonderfully unique

The traditional elegance of the Cinq Mondes brand fuses wonderfully with the gorgeous natural Mauritian surrounds of Long Beach to create a truly exceptional and unique spa, characterised by Zen-like decor and a sense of peacefulness. Inspired hugely by nature, the spa has been constructed using natural volcanic rocks, stone and wood and is organically designed to create a type of labyrinth made up of winding paths laced between secluded treatment rooms (nine single rooms, two for couples and two special scrub rooms), spa facilities, relaxation areas and the reception. At Long Beach’s spa, you have the opportunity to embark on a sensorial journey to reconnect with nature, your incredible surrounds and yourself.

 

It has an outstanding list of treatments

The treatments at Long Beach’s Cinq Mondes Spa and Wellness Retreat are able to transport you to distant lands and bygone eras. Here, the options are virtually endless: from incredible beauty rituals (inspired by a myriad of countries from Thailand and Japan to Egypt and Brazil) to exotic bath and body rituals and from glorious facials to sensational massages—you are sure to find the right treatment for your pamper session. Waxes, nail care and hair services are also offered but the “Ritual Stays” are arguably the most tempting option. These remarkable spa journeys take place over between three and five days and are a combination of treatments that are designed to leave you looking and feeling your absolute best.

Another phenomenal thing about this spa? It’s not only reserved for the adults; it has a range of excellent treatments specifically created with kids in mind (between the ages of 6 and 11) with special treatments marked as being suitable for slightly older kids (between 11 and 17).

 

The relaxation area is unparalleled

There’s nothing like that pre- or post-treatment relaxation session to ensure that your spa experience either gets off to the right start or the benefits of it linger for much longer. And the relaxation area at Long Beach’s spa is unbelievably special. This phenomenal area is (literally) set amongst the lush tropical vegetation and magnificent trees, and boasts an amazing view of the spa’s pond. Enjoy your complimentary detox juice while making the most of the hanging loungers overlooking the water or hidden amongst the trees and soak in the peacefulness and beauty of an unparalleled relaxation area, so stunning that you may be tempted to spend the rest of your day there.

 

It’s worth a visit just for the spa facilities

When you book any treatment at Long Beach’s incredible spa you are entitled to complimentary use of the hammam and steam room. It’s recommended to come about half an hour early for your appointment so that you can make the most of these facilities and so they don’t impact your treatment time. If you don’t have any spare time on the day of your treatment to use them, you can speak to the spa therapists about booking the use of the facilities for another day (at no extra charge).

 

The Cinq Mondes products are exceptional

The Cinq Mondes brand prides itself on embracing the cultures of the world and each treatment is inspired by a different place. Similarly, the products are created through the use of carefully selected ingredients from around the globe. Each product is dermatologically tested and Cinq Mondes themselves say “...[the products] combine state-of-the-art cosmetology with sensory appeal and comply with our Natural Laboratory Charter developed by a Doctor of Pharmacy”. So not only are the products of a high-quality and wonderfully aromatic, they are also made with organic and natural main active ingredients and are devoid of any parabens, phenoxyethanol, silicone, artificial colourants and mineral oils. And what’s more, if you fall in love with the products used in your treatment, you can buy them at the spa itself, with your therapist's guidance of which products, in her expert opinion, she thinks would be best for you.

 

Each treatment is perfectly tailored to you

The attentive therapists at Long Beach’s spa ensure that each treatment is perfectly tailored to their guests’ individual needs and preferences. Before you begin your spa journey, you will be required to fill out a questionnaire where you are able to express the areas that concern you, your preferences and any health-related history that would be applicable. The high standards of training that all Cinq Mondes spa practitioners and therapists undergo, ensures that you can completely surrender to serenity knowing that you are in your therapist’s very capable hands.

If you are looking for an incredible holiday in Mauritius where you can indulge in some much deserved “me-time”, then look no further than a stay at Long Beach. This incredible five-star hotel is nothing short of spectacular and it’s perfect for families and couples alike. Experience the energy of Long Beach as you relish your holiday in paradise.
