The wonderful warmth, color and exotic mixes that characterize Mauritius can now be experienced at the new Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa. The Hawaii- based company Outrigger Enterprises Group announced the opening of the Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa, which welcomed its first guests on January 30, 2014 (Mauritius time). The company’s portfolio of beachfront leisure resorts increased its presence across the Pacific, Asia and now the Indian Ocean. The deluxe 181-room, all sea-view resort is the first for Outrigger in the Indian Ocean and the company’s 45th property now open or under development in eight countries.
In Mauritius the absolute beachfront property has an idyllic location on the southern tip of the island in the Bel Ombre nature reserve, adjacent to the Heritage Golf Club. The new Outrigger resort is surrounded on the landward side by expansive sugar cane plantations.
Outrigger purchased the property in May 2013 and has completed an extensive refurbishment program.
“The Outrigger dream for Mauritius has come true. From today we are delivering our acclaimed Outrigger hospitality that blends the needs of the most discerning traveller with the charm and tradition of an early 17th century Mauritian sugar cane plantation on the island’s southern coast,” said The Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa General Manager, Frederic Chretien.
The new Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa is a 45-minute drive from the island’s international airport (MRU) and a 90-minute drive from the capital, Port Louis.
