Outrigger Hotels and Resorts bought the 181-key beachfront resort in May 2013 and an extensive refurbishment is nearing completion.
All 181 suites and rooms have a sea view with several having direct access to the white sand beach and the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean. Entry-level rooms are a generous 63 square metres.
“I believe the new Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa at Bel Ombre will quickly establish itself as an iconic and very innovative resort in Mauritius,” says general manager, Frederic Chretien.
As of January 15, a variety of services and features will open including the majority of guest rooms, the beachfront Edgewater restaurant, the vibrant Bar Bleu and most public spaces.
“Our suites, rooms and food and beverage options are unique for Mauritius,” says Chretien. “I believe the opening of Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa will herald an exciting new era of hospitality in the Mauritius tourism scene.”
Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa sits on the southern tip of the Republic of Mauritius, 2000 kilometres off the south-east coast of Africa and 1100 kilometres from the east coast of Madagascar.
Getting there is easy. Direct flights connect Mauritius with Perth, with flying time about 7.5 hours. Air Mauritius operates three weekly flights from Perth and code shares with Virgin from eastern seaboard states and New Zealand.
Direct flights also connect Mauritius to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chennai, Delhi, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Paris, London, Dubai, Johannesburg and numerous cities in Africa.
Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa is a 45-minute drive from the international airport (MRU) and a similar distance from the capital of Port Louis. The resort is surrounded on three sides by the nature reserve of Bel Ombre.
