Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts
recently opened the Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita, a tropical sanctuary that takes its inspiration
from the dense mangroves and lush greenery that line the east Mauritian coast.
“Many people are familiar with Mauritius as a beach destination,”
said Andrew Harrison, General Manager, “but Four Seasons is keen to
introduce guests to the many ways to appreciate the island beyond its shoreline by interacting with its natural offerings, whether that’s through
sporting activities, adventure, discovery or relaxation.”
The all-pool villa
resort is part of the Anahita World Class Sanctuary, a private mixed-use development that includes Private Residences and the
Four Seasons Golf Club Mauritius at Anahita, featuring an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Ernie Els. The
resort borders one of
Mauritius’ largest lagoons and occupies its own stretch of coastline, extending across wooden bridges to encompass a private island, Ile aux
Chats (4.5 hectares / 11 acres).
All elements of the
resort feature a contemporary Mauritian style, designed to invite interaction with the surrounding nature. The 123
single-storey Pool and Residence Villas are arranged around the existing landscape, resulting in
authentic features like waterfront
gardens behind the mangroves. All villas feature extensive outdoor living spaces that include an al fresco shower, a large verandah, plunge pool
and private garden filled with indigenous plants and trees.
A secluded over-water
spa – influenced by the island’s ancestral healing rituals, ingredients and therapies – combines with the Golf Course,
three sand beaches, four swimming pools, Fitness Centre, Boathouse and Diving Centre to offer
some of the most comprehensive leisure facilities on the
island. There are also four restaurants and a lounge bar, serving Southern French, Italian, Pan-Asian, and international cuisine, all with a modern
twist, in keeping with the Resort’s contemporary styling.
Families are catered for with the Teen’s Club and Kids’ Club Village, where the complimentary Kids for All Seasons Programme enriched by the
resort’s tropical environment, expansive grounds and traditional Mauritian elements.
resort also facilitates a range of activities to bring the
family closer together through interaction with the natural environment, including swimming in the clear pools below the cascading waterfalls of
Grande Rivičre Sud Est; snorkelling or kayaking around the Ile aux Chats and visits to the island’s many nature reserves and gardens, including
Ile aux Aigrettes, a sanctuary for plants, animals, reptiles and birds.
