Discover the South East Coast of Mauritius at the New Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort and Villas
Nestled on Le Chaland Beach along the south-eastern coast of Mauritius, Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas is a tranquil hideaway, offering secluded luxury. Recently opened, the new resort offers something for everyone –foodies, beach lovers, culture and history buffs, nature enthusiasts and sporty adventurers. Located south of the island’s old capital of Mahebourg, this corner of Mauritius is less developed, relatively untouched and amplified by nature. The design reflects the melting pot history of the country, drawing influences from the rich architectural heritage seen in the capital Port Louis and around the island. Natural, locally-sourced materials take precedence, with the use of volcanic stone, basalt, driftwood crafted by local artisans, scattered light and wave-and-ripple patterns blurring the line between the indoor and the outdoor.
Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort’s 164 guest rooms and suites offer stylish bedrooms, bathrooms with a rain shower and separate bathtub, and a terrace or balcony with a daybed overlooking either the resort’s lush tropical gardens or the Indian Ocean. The clean design doesn’t distract from the view, rather it blends well with the terrain, echoing the sparkling shades of blue sea, powdery ivory beaches, amber sunsets, and rare yellow corals. Eight luxury Pool Villas –two with two bedrooms and six with four bedrooms –will launch in Q2 next year. Anantara Spa offers a range of therapeutic treatments including traditional massage therapies, detox treatments and rituals in the spa’s Turkish hammam. The focal point of the resort is the impressive 30-metre ozone-based swimming pool, one of many sustainability initiatives that are incorporated into the property.
