Anantara to debut in Mauritius
POSTED 04 Mar 2019 . BY Jane Kitchen
Anantara Hotels, Resorts & Spas is entering the luxury hospitality sector on the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius with Anantara Mauritius Resort – a new property on the southeastern coast, which is scheduled to open in Q4 2019.

Anantara Mauritius Resort is being developed in partnership with Currimjee Jeewanjee & Co, a local entrepreneurial family-owned business operating in a number of sectors, including telecoms, cable TV, food and beverages, commercial services and hospitality.

Part of an integrated coastal development, the new resort will be located near Blue Bay Marine Park, one of the island’s premier snorkelling and diving destinations.

Anantara Mauritius Resort will feature 164 guest rooms and suites, with eight luxury pool villas – two with two bedrooms and six with four bedrooms – to be added in the first half of 2020.

Facilities at the resort will include a signature Anantara Spa as well as a gym, 30m ozone-based swimming pool, a healthy wellness-focused cafe and several other restaurants and bars.

The look and feel of the new resort have been created by Australia-based Ground Kent Architects, in collaboration with the Office of Global Architecture in Mauritius, alongside Abacus Design interior designers of Thailand.

The design reflects the melting pot history of the country, drawing influences from the rich architectural heritage seen in the capital Port Louis and around the island.

Natural, locally-sourced materials take precedence, anchoring the buildings in their natural setting. Taking inspiration from local colonial architecture, the overall effect evokes the vibe of a relaxing, tropical beach house with a distinctly modern feel.

The use of scattered light, basalt and volcanic stone, driftwood, wave-and-ripple patterns and neutral sandy colours blur the line between the indoor and the outdoor. Fabrics and art selected for the rooms are a contrasting combination of accents of orange, deep ultramarine and royal yellow as a nod to Blue Bay’s crystal waters, sandy beaches and legendary sunsets.

As part of Anantara and Currimjee’s commitment to sustainability, the resort will incorporate solar technology for water heating in all guest rooms. Other green initiatives include planting endemic flora within the hotel landscaping, reusing water for irrigation and cleaning as well as incorporating recycled materials into resort décor. The property will be plastic straw-free, an Anantara standard, and where possible organic farming methods will be encouraged throughout its restaurant supply chain.

Dillip Rajakarier, CEO Minor Hotels, parent company of Anantara, commented, “It was important for us to work with a local developer who shares our values and 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.”
