PowerPoint Presentation

December 2018 Edition

Dear Colleagues,

I would like to express my sincere thanks to each of you for your service, professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm for going an extra mile in order to make our guests’ stay more enjoyable and pleasant. Looking back at 2018, we have had an intense year, and the last three months were very eventful with the pop up collaboration of Steakmaestro, the launch of the Cercle des Ambassadeurs but most notably the resort’s 40 th anniversary celebrations and the festive season which came to its peak with the New Year’s night. 2018 was also a year of development of our team as we reinforced our continuous training programmes towards our personnel to hone your skills and interests to provide an exceptional service towards guests. The hospitality industry is becoming increasingly competitive and we have no alternatives but to continuously upgrade our services and culinary offerings. We want to show our competitors that we are a force to be reckoned with and deliver the true heart of Le Touessrok to our valued guests.

Lastly, I would like to seize this opportunity to wish you and your family a joyous and successful New Year.

Yours sincerely,

Gerhard Hecker & family


At SLTR, we marked the debut of an incredible festive season with the lighting of our grand Banyan tree, with enchanting performances of Christmas carols and cocktails with our lovely guests. We were humbled by the opportunity to unveil our gratitude tree on this very occasion, which allowed guests to extend their continuous contribution towards our CSR Embrace partners (EWAD and FIFI EK TIZAN schools). The purchase of each lucky star on our gratitude tree will churn funds for our lovely Kids.

Our People


At Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resorts & Spa, our colleagues engaged in our Master Chef competition. It

was challenging! It was fun! It was spectacular! 4 teams took the challenge and embarked on this

journey to create a tasteful, colorful and very Mauritian dish. The teams were judged on the

presentation, table setting, Taste, food safety & hygiene, as well as the originality of the dish. In 1st

position was our F&B team, followed by the Housekeeping team and Finance team. Our judges were

astonished by the taste and presentation of our teams’ dishes. Congrats to the winning team!


At Shangri-La Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, we wanted to acknowledge our retirees

for all the perseverance, sweat and passion that accompanied their wonderful work

by our side. We hosted them for a vibrant lunch at Le Bazar followed by a cake

cutting in the staff restaurant surrounded by our colleagues! The reunion was very

emotional when old friends, colleagues and supervisors met and shared their

memories and laughter.


PARTY 2018

ids Party 2018 at SLTR – This year’s Kids Party has been filled with even more laughter,

oy and a lot of shared gifts and memories. We were hosted by TerrOcean at Domaine

e l’Etoile surrounded by picturesque views of the mountain and rivers. The kids were

poiled with so many activities, like zip line, quads, boat rides, trampoline, cart, face

ainting and horse riding. Imagine how astonished we were when Santa flew down

rom the sky to meet the children!!

Our Corporate Social Responsibility


Watch out our Charity Dinner showcased in a sustainable way! At Shangri-La's Le Touessrok Resort & Spa, to celebrate the 40th Birthday of the Resort, our guests had the opportunity to be part of a stunning fund-raising dinner with the Cordon Bleu of Mauritian cooking - Jacqueline Dalais! Jacqueline is the granddaughter of the original owner of Le Touessrok, and is widely regarded as a master of Mauritian cooking, particularly seafood. She teased our guests' taste buds with a luxurious five-course meal! The dinner was filled with local flavours and delicious dishes, such as a sea urchin cappuccino with cassava fingers, a succulent pan-fried pavé of snapper as well as some selection of island-style sweets while contributing to a noble cause. Part of the funds collected at this special event were donated to our Embrace partner, Eastern Welfare Association for Disabled (EWAD), looking after less privileged children.


At SLTR we conducted a Fun Day for a group of 25 children from our CSR Embrace partner, EWAD (Eastern Welfare Association for Disabled). Around 20 guests participated actively in the recreational activities, such as musical hat and knot tying, in the Recreations Center as well as on Hibiscus beach.

To be an Ambassador, a guest must have 100 visits with us, and we were proud to gather with around 60 guests who were given the name of Ambassador of Le Touessrok.


Our whitest whites created a one-of-a-kind experience for our guests at SLTR and everybody celebrated a legendary night with Scarlett de la Torre, Roxanne Lebrasse and danced the night away to the beats of DJ David Jay on 29 December 2018.

“Once upon a time” it so happened that Mr. Lougoon and Miss Muir landed in Mauritius to experience the Sun,Sand and Sea at Shangri-La’s Le Touessrok Resort & Spa. However Miss Muir was not aware about the secret mission that Mr. Lougoon was undergoing during their stay at SLTR. One day, he called one of our team members in IRD and enquire about a romantic dinner to propose Miss Muir and the colleague took all the information based on the requirement of Mr. Lougoon. On that very day, the IRD team went an extra mile by catering for a dine-by-design which was beyond the expectation of the guest and Mr. Lougoon was thrilled to announce his proposal to engage Miss Muir. A WOW experience for this young couple, which will be remembered forever.
