At Long Beach you can enjoy the following experiences:


Forget Long Island Ice Teas and oh so expected Pina Colada, and say hello to cocktails served with an elegant twist. Mixologist sorcery brings you an innovative new cocktail menu. Using local flavours, tonics and small-batch liquors, the cocktails are designed with medicinal healing properties.

From party drinks to party healers, there’s a glass to nurse a hangover or soothe the sunburn. Prepare to be wowed as expert bartenders confect molecular cocktails using dry ice and wizardry skill. And why not join the weekly molecular masterclass to mix your own tipples. First come, first stirred!

Start your biodiversity journey with a tour of beehives with lzzy the Bee, the new mascot of Sunlife, and watch 245 000 happy, buzzing bees busy producing their delicious golden nectar. Move on to the park’s nature trail and wander through endemic plants.

Discover the flora and fauna of Mauritius, including a rare ebony tree. Conclude your experience by treating yourself to a honey-tasting session and have a taste of the natural goodness grown in the herb garden.

Transforming the piazza

As evening falls, the Long Beach piazza transforms into its night-time persona, illuminated by a sequence of interactive artworks and light installations that flicker across the white buildings, palm trees and tessellated floor.

Long Beach illuminates with creative brilliance, combined with music and art, and the piazza comes to life as a stunning piece of performance art that showcases local visual artists. After dinner, visiting solo musicians and up-and-coming bands play anything from ambient sessions to slow jazz.

A few of Sugar Beach’s Come Alive Experiences include:


Embrace your inner ballroom diva and up your grooving skills with Strictly Sugar dance classes. Couples are shown by experienced instructors how to swing those arms and move those feet, all in double-quick time.

Classes are designed to progressively improve dance technique, style and stamina. Putting their talents to the test, on Saturday evenings, guest dancers are invited to showcase their best routines to the big sound and beat of the house band.

Crazy croquet

For a barmy afternoon of old-school fun, Sugar Beach presents croquet on the grand lawn. Enjoy a glass of pale rosé or a deeper-hued Aperol Spritz as you hone your skills with the mallet.

Brush up on the rules while competing in teams for the last hoop and peg. It’s a jovial bonding experience, but the dress code is strictly whites and Panama hats. When the mallets are down, over cucumber sandwiches and cordial, players can either celebrate their triumph or commiserate over missed swings.

Beauty bubble

A nail bar by day or a spa by night, our Beauty Bubble on the beach is an original way to combine pamper and play. The treatment menu includes wind-down massages and a variety of glamorous hair and make-up options ensuring that guests always look and feel their best.

While the therapists take care of you, a butler offers drinks from the trolley. For a cool daytime retreat, a sundowner ritual, or a fairy-lit evening of indulgence, the Beauty Bubble is the place to be for all things beautiful.
