New resort opens at Anahita, Mauritius

afrol News, 2 October - Mauritius is host to a new family resort that will expand tourists' adventure beyond clear long and hospitable sand beaches, offering a closer interaction with Indian Ocean island nature.

Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts yesterday opened new resort in Mauritius at Anahita, a tropical sanctuary that takes its inspiration from dense mangroves and lush greenery that line east Mauritian coast.

"Many people are familiar with Mauritius as a beach destination," explained 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."

According to company, all-pool villa resort is part of Anahita world class sanctuary, a private mixed-use development that includes private residences and golf club Anahita, featuring an 18-hole championship golf course designed by top player Ernie Els.

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 which is about 4.5 hectares (11 acres).

All elements of the Resort feature a contemporary Mauritian style, designed to invite interaction with surrounding nature, with 123 single-storey pool and residence villas arranged around existing landscape, resulting in unique and 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, the company said.

A secluded over-water Spa - influenced by island's ancestral healing rituals, ingredients and therapies - combines with the Golf Course, three sand beaches, and other facilities, such as kids and teen clubs makes resort a spot for families.

The Resort also facilitates a range of activities to bring the family closer together through interaction with natural environment, including swimming in the clear pools below cascading waterfalls of Grande Riviere Sud Est; snorkelling or kayaking around the Ile aux Chats and visits to island's many nature reserves and gardens, including Ile aux Aigrettes, a sanctuary for plants, animals, reptiles and birds. "Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita is a very unique place where families will want to come spend time together year after year and we look forward to welcoming them," added Mr Harrison.
