MHG Signs Anantara Resort in Mauritius

Thailand's Minor Hotels Group has signed a deal that expands its portfolio of Anantara Hotels and Resorts to the Indian Ocean island of Mauritius.

 The Anantara Mauritius Resort, scheduled to open in Q4 2019, 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, F&B, commercial services and hospitality.

As the two companies share the same sustainability goals, the resort will incorporate solar technology, reuse water for irrigation and cleaning, and incorporate recycled materials into the resort's décor. The property will also 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 Group said, “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.”

Part of an integrated coastal development, just 15 minutes from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, the new resort will be located near Blue Bay Marine Park – a leisure destination boasting a protected marine park, crystal-clear Indian Ocean waters and powdery white beaches. Blue Bay’s coral reefs make it one of the island’s premier snorkeling and diving destinations.

Anantara Mauritius Resort will feature 164 guest rooms and suites, with eight 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 Sea.Fire.Salt – a specialty grill and seafood restaurant with courtyard and beach dining, an all-day dining restaurant, private dining with a wine cellar, a healthy wellness-focused cafe, two bars – one by the poolside and one facing the beach, a 30-metre ozone-based swimming pool, a gym, a signature Anantara Spa and a kids’ club.

Dinesh K. Burrenchobay, Managing Director, Currimjee Jeewanjee Hospitality Division, said, “We are excited to be opening soon the first Anantara resort on our beautiful tropical island of Mauritius, in partnership with Minor Hotels. It is also the return of our group in the Mauritian Hospitality sector with the beginning of our journey for our integrated development to create a unique coastal living lifestyle. 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 our 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.”

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