The Edge Of Paradise
Long beach is a major new resort opening on the east coast of mauritius in 2010. It brings carefree piazza-style living to the longest and widest stretch of white-sand coastline of any mauritian resort. Beyond the beach, the tropical lagoon with its crystal clear blue waters and rare coral formations is a snorkelling paradise.
The focus of the resort’s layout and its life is the urban-style piazza with restaurants, shops and bars. Architecture brings tropical interpretations to contemporary urban themes, softened by natural forms, local detailing and materials. Buildings integrate with the resorts extensive lush tropical gardens. A unique architectural feature is the adjustable “wind breaks” that modulate the offshore breezes.
Long beach is being developed by sun resorts, which also owns and operates sugar beach and a pirogue, sister resorts on the west coast. Sun resorts’ five-star properties are le touessrok on the east coast of mauritius and kanuhura in the maldives.
