Anantara to debut in Mauritius
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas has announced plans to open its first property in Mauritius.
Anantara Mauritius Resort is scheduled to join the brand’s portfolio in Q4 2019.
The luxury development will boast 164 guest rooms and suites, as well as a selection of restaurants and bars, a spa and a 30-metre swimming pool.
Eight pool villas are also set to be added to the complex in the first half of 2020.
The resort is being developed in partnership with local multi-sector business Currimjee Jeewanjee & Co and forms part of an integrated coastal development in the south east of the island, located just 15 minutes from Sior Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport.
It plans to have a strong sustainability focus, with initiatives including solar technology, recycled materials incorporated into resort décor and reusing water for irrigation.
Dillip Rajakarier, CEO of Anantara’s parent company Minor Hotels, said it was important for the firm to work with a local developer who shared its commitment to sustainable business practices.
“In Currimjee Jeewanjee & Co Ltd we found a like-minded business partner with strong ties to the local community and it’s our shared belief that together we can make Anantara Mauritius Resort the centre-point of this new integrated coastal development,” he said.
Currimjee Jeewanjee’s hospitality managing director Dinesh K. Burrenchobay added: “We are excited to be opening soon the first Anantara resort on our beautiful tropical island of Mauritius, in partnership with Minor Hotels.
“On a unique site on the island’s South East coast, Anantara Mauritius will provide guests a complete immersion in the natural habitat and culture of its surroundings. In line with Currimjee's long term vision of sustainability for the next generation, the hotel has a number of unique sustainable initiatives integrated in its design and facilities, for its future guests to enjoy.”
