    Destination Specialist

    “For any keen golfer, the 18-hole championship course on Ile aux Cerf is like no other I’ve ever played. All greens are kept absolutely pristine, but the most attractive thing about the course is the stunning panoramic views over the Indian Ocean. I’d recommend staying at Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok, located on Trou d’eau Douce beach. Only a short boat ride away, guests staying here can enjoy complimentary green fees to this fantastic course.”
