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 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.
The Republic of Mauritius is located 2,000 kms off the southeast coast of Africa and 1,100 kms from the east coast of Madagascar. 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 renovation program.
