A hidden gem on the quieter, untouched south-east coast, Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort offers a tranquil retreat beside a long white sand beach, close to unspoilt nature and ideally located for discovering the rich heritage and authentic colonial culture of Mauritius.
Set beside the pristine Le Chaland beach near the Blue Bay Marine Park, Anantara Iko Mauritius offers a delightful mix of contemporary spacious rooms and suites. Opened in October 2019, lead-in Garden View Rooms are scattered around the lush tropical gardens, while Deluxe Ocean View Rooms overlook the beach and provide easy access to the white sand and turquoise waters. All offer inter-connecting options, making them an ideal family choice. There are also several larger one-bedroom Suites with separate living area, as well as superbly-appointed 2-bedroom Family Garden Suites which sleep up to 4 adults and 2 children. A collection of sumptuous 2 and 4-bedroom villas will open later in 2020.
The resort has excellent dining options: Horizon, the main restaurant, caters for all tastes with local and international cuisine, daily themed evenings and live cooking stations; while the signature restaurant, 'Sea.Fire. Salt', has grills and seafood; Bon Manzer offers deli options based on organic and sustainable food. The main pool bar opens daily from early until late with live entertainment up to three times a week, while the beach bar is the perfect place for a light bite or a sundowner. For special occasions, there's a variety of private dining options including the wine cellar and private areas on the beach or in the tropical gardens, all perfect for a romantic honeymoon in Mauritius.
For relaxation, the Anantara Spa is an oasis of tranquillity with an array of holistic wellness treatments, Thai massage, traditional hammam and yoga classes. Children are well catered for with a daily activity programme at the Dodo Nest kids club. For the more active, Anantara Mauritius has two tennis courts, a main infinity pool, plus a variety of non-motorised water sports including snorkelling, kayaks and paddle boards. Motorised activities such as jet-skis and parasailing are not permitted here. Diving and fishing excursions can be arranged as can a round or two of golf at several championship courses within just a 30-minute drive, such as Avalon, Ile aux Cerfs and Anahita.
The area around Anantara Iko Mauritius is tremendously unspoilt and offers the chance to discover a little of the cultural and colonial diversity of Mauritius.
