Sugar Beach and Long Beach Golf Resort and Spa

Clive Wedderburn November 20, 2017

Mauritius, one of the most beautiful islands in the world, is also home to some of the world’s finest golfing experiences. For endless sunshine and dreamy landscapes, plus elegant beach resorts and world-renown hospitality, this Indian Ocean paradise is hard to beat. If you’re a golfing enthusiast searching for the ideal golf hotel to complement your holiday then look no further than these exceptional resorts: Sugar Beach and the Long Beach Golf Resort and Spa.

Long Beach Golf Resort & Spa Mauritius – East Coast

If you’re idea of holiday perfection is an activity-rich haven on the shores of a tropical lagoon, then the Long Beach Golf Resort and Spa in Belle Mare should top your travel wish-list. Modern and stylish suites greet you, exceptional gourmet experiences will tantalise your taste buds and attentive staff will always provide the legendary welcome for which Mauritius is famed.

Rest and rejuvenate in the Cinq Monde Spa and enjoy the Zen-like atmosphere of this tranquil wellness retreat. With tropical breezes tickling your nose, unwind with world-class treatments in the outdoor pavilion surrounded by manicured gardens, where expert practitioners will help rebalance your mind and body for inner calm.

And when the night falls, the entertainment continues with a wide range of live performances from Sega shows featuring dancers and musicians to exotic cooking demonstrations, and vibrant evenings at the Shores Bar on the Long Beach Piazza.

Sugar Beach Golf & Spa Resort – West Coast

From the moment you enter this opulent plantation-style resort you’ll feel you’ve entered a world of charm and sophistication. From the pristine white sands to the crystalline waters of its blue lagoon, or dining in its world-class restaurants from where you’ll witness amazing sunsets, Sugar Beach Golf Resort and Spa will surpass all expectations.

The guest rooms here are spacious and elegantly decorated featuring king size beds, complementary WIFI and LCD flat screen TVs.  For total indulgence the Aura Spa features its own Aura Hamman with heated pool to become your sanctuary from the stresses of everyday life, offering both couple’s and single’s treatment rooms and an extensive air-conditioned fitness centre.

Activities at both resorts abound for those who prefer to stay active on their holidays, from water skiing and windsurfing, sailing and glass-bottom boat rides, to PADI Certificated Dive Schools and snorkelling trips to explore coral gardens found just offshore to floodlit tennis courts to improve your game. There are many ways to combine the beauty of the landscape with opportunities for exercise; or, equally, you could spend your entire time relaxing by the pool with a chilled glass or two.

A golfer’s paradise

Guests at Sugar Beach can visit the Tamarina Golf Club just five minutes away from the resort. This 18 hole championship course designed by American Golf Architect Rodney Wright is considered one of the best golf experiences on the west coast. It’s a stunning par 72 golf course at a shade over 886 meters long that captures mesmerising views of Rempart Mountain and Tamarin Bay shimmering in the distance.

After your game at Tamarina Golf Club be sure to visit the restaurant Dix-Neuf to sample the international cuisine with a Mauritian twist while soaking up your gorgeous surroundings.

On the east coast and close to the Long Beach you’ll discover Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club. The excitement begins when you board your shuttle boat from the hotel jetty to be personally transported across the shallow lagoon to this dream island. Non- golfers will appreciate the tropical scenery, plus there’s a sailing club on the island should you wish to combine activities on land and sea.

The course was designed by legend Bernhard Langar and features undulating fairways that sweep across the island’s rich topography. Sometimes the course drives through beautiful tropical vegetation, while at others the lush turf borders on white sand beaches and cerulean waters – you’ll find it hard to tear your eyes away from the scenery to take your shot.

What’s more, whether you’re staying at the Sugar Beach or the Long Beach you’ll enjoy exclusive access to and complimentary green fees for both Tamarina and Ile aux Cerfs golf clubs.

The perfect family resort?

Here’s another incredible offer you should consider for unforgettable family holidays – for a limited time only, if you book now, children will stay and eat free (up to 2 children under 12 years sharing their parent’s room – 2 Adults – as per meal plan booked). Younger guests can also roam free and be entertained by the facilities and activities available at the Sun Kids and Teens Club, making a dream family holiday so much more affordable.

Combine Mauritius with...

To turn your holiday into an exceptional adventure we suggest you team your tropical paradise with a safari holiday in South Africa. Fly into Cape Town and you’ll have added a cosmopolitan city and beach adventure to your holiday. Or, if modern metropolises are on your wish-list, then surely a visit to the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, will prove a fascinating contrast to your Indian Ocean holiday.

Sun Resort Hotels are so adaptable; they make a cosy couple’s retreat, an activity-rich family resort or a sports fanatic’s dream destination. If you can’t decide which hotel you prefer, remember that it’s easy to create a twin centre holiday with a stay in both the Sugar Beach and the Long Beach to enjoy the best of both worlds.
