We are very proud to be announcing this next step in our international expansion, said Thirayuth Chirathivat, chief executive officer of Centara Hotels & Resorts. Our first resort property in Mauritius, Centara Poste Lafayette Resort & Spa Mauritius, opened in December 2012 and is already proving to be a great success within the industry, and with our guests. Opening our premier five-star brand on the island gives us a very strong presence, and we feel there is enormous potential in the Mauritian tourism sector.

Centara Grand Azuri Resort & Spa Mauritius is part of the Azuri oceanfront complex, a 400-acre development that is home to luxury residences, a private school, retail outlets and sports and marine services.

By offering a five-star premium-brand resort and a four-star core brand resort in Mauritius, we will be in a very strong marketing position, and it further enhances our presence in the Indian Ocean region, which we have targeted as part of our expansion strategy. We believe that Azuri will very quickly become a destination in its own right, as it delivers the total vacation experience for couples and families alike.
