The Sustainable and Iconic Long Beach Hotel on Mauritius
Stauch Vorster Architects designed the very elegant eco-glam Long Beach Hotel for Mauritius, a small island in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Africa.
Its unique two-story-height shutters allow the ocean breezes to whisk entirely through the heart of the iconic hotel.
A number of open air pavilions dotted throughout the resort are integrated seamlessly with the gorgeous tropical setting.
Lush and romantic, yet the bare-bones eco design takes advantage of the tropical climate for energy conservation.
The minimal concrete-and-wooden-shutters architecture style is refreshingly simple and elegant.
All of the guest rooms are positioned in crescent clusters to achieve the maximum sea views from all terraces.
Indoor/outdoor living is the order of the day for this kind of relaxed architecture.
Stone tile floors allow for sandy feet to pad right in directly off the beach for the best of seaside living.
Sometimes the ultimate in luxury is the freedom of this kind of relaxed lifestyle: Long Beach Hotel is a five star luxury resort.
