Long Beach Hotel, Mauritius

As hotels on the Eastern Coast of Mauritius are building up, nothing quite fits the atmosphere, amenities, and aesthetics of the new Long Beach Hotel. The credit of the stunning look of the lodge goes to Keith Interior Design, a seasoned vet when it comes to hospitality design, with the help of their partners at M2K Architecture.

The hotel lobby is massive in size, with ceiling heights reaching nearly 27 feet high! Tall wooden blinds open up, which allows for an abundant amount of fresh air to roll through the arriving space. The entrance even has a honed wood bridge with a matching door that opens and doubles as an awning. Be sure to spread out with your luggage upon arrival in the elongated lobby and enjoy the six-foot custom metal and gem light fixtures that dangle from the ceiling.

The arrangement of the 255 room hotel is designed on a crescent, so each room has a full view of the ocean! The chic contemporary designs of the rooms blend together open-air and indoor living as woods, whites, corals, and green tones are used to create a refreshing, easy-on-the-eye suite; a place easy to relax. The Long Beach Hotel is truly a one of a kind breathtaking luxury resort that you must see for yourself!

Each public space has its own styling and mood; the different languages were created by using different pieces of furniture. The teen center is modern and chic with bubble chairs, and minimalistic design elements. Dining in the family restaurant is like snacking on a rustic beach, while the fine-dining restaurant goes for a warm contemporary feel.

Although each public space is designed to give a unique experience, the architect noted that they "kept a strong link between the different areas by using dominant neutral tones, natural stones, raw timber and crisply finished aluminum."

The design of the Long Beach Hotel is what makes it a successful luxury resort-meets-family vacations type property, but it's the inviting architecture and refreshing vibe of the lobby that 'had us at hello.' Oh - and let's not forget to mention the infinity pool over looking the white sanded beach, but I don't think we need to explain the awesome factor in that!
