Long Beach: Ile aux Cerfs Golf & Anahita Golf
Couples or families staying at Long Beach on the East Coast of Mauritius are likely to be spoilt by the choice of both relaxing and energetic activities on offer: from the 4 pools, to lying on the beach, to water sports, tennis, gym, or just visiting the Cinq Mondes Spa for some indulgent indolence. Whatever your definition of a memorable holiday, it will surely become a reality at this 5-star hotel, which promises unforgettable experiences that are sure to create ‘timeless memories’.
Few resorts anywhere in the world are likely to offer the golfer access to three top championship golf courses, each one more spectacular than the next; and giving you the opportunity to play golf on both the East and West coasts of the island, with the unique proposition of enjoying a round at sunrise, and also with the setting sun at the Tamarina Golf Club!
To play a round, with free green fees for guests of Long Beach, at Anahita Golf Course has to be the experience of a lifetime for any golfer. The only USGA course in the Indian Ocean, with no less than 6 stunning oceanfront holes culminating in a final shot described by Major winner Ernie Els, the course designer, as ‘one of the most impressive in the world!’
Last, but certainly not least, is the Ile aux Cerfs Golf Club, where Long Beach residents again enjoy free green fees, a course where adjectives like magnificent, or spectacular, are not sufficient. Located on an iconic island made perfect for a golf course, with its coastline of little bays, inlets and promontories, all 18 holes have views of the sea. Golf Magazine UK recently voted it as the ‘No 1, of the Top 20 Must Play Golf Course of a Lifetime!’. A free shuttle is provided from the hotel. A golf initiation program happens each day at 11:00, is free for Long Beach hotel guests and is a great way to learn the basics of the game in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. A golf academy and its facilities are also available for novice golfers.
