Blue Bay Marine Park, Mauritius, September 25, 2021 / TRAVELINDEX / The beautiful Indian Ocean island of Mauritius offers the perfect antidote to lockdown-weary travelers and is reopening to vaccinated travelers for quarantine free travel on October 1st. With exquisite natural scenery, miles of jaw dropping coastline and unrivalled experiences, the island is the destination of choice for discerning guests seeking a combination of luxurious adventure and holistic wellness. One of the newest properties on the island, Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas is welcoming back guests with the introduction of daily activities focused on wellness and active wellbeing and the launch of its brand-new pool villas.
Upon reopening, the Resort will become a choice destination for those looking for an active and relaxing holiday with a daily schedule of multiple immersive activities. Guests can enjoy activities such as nearby guided forest walks, local cultural tours, snorkeling in the Blue Bay marine park, plus a selection of wellness therapies ranging from yoga, meditation, tai chi and stretching to de-stress and unwind in pure natural surroundings amplified by nature.
For those looking for a tailormade programme also incorporating spa, the new three, five and seven-day packages offer a series of therapeutic experiences making use of the award-winning spa and fitness facilities at Anantara Iko Mauritius and connecting guests to the rugged scenery of the locale. The full seven day ‘Back to Basics’ package includes a wide selection of personalised experiences for guests to pick from and can also be adapted for shorter stays.
A haven of modern tranquillity, the Anantara Spa forms a pivotal role in the wellness retreats of any length stay and guests are invited to surrender to the expert hands of highly experienced therapists to pamper and wind down. Indulgent treatments include Shirodhara Massage and Avant-garde musicotherapy to counter balance the effects of regular exercise on tired limbs. The 90-minute Anantara Signature Massage combines indigenous ingredients such as locally sourced salt scrubs and essential oils infused with flora and fauna native to the island. A schedule of spa therapies is included within each of the programmes.
Delectable dining is the pièce de résistance of any five-star retreat, and Anantara Iko Mauritius delivers all this, whilst showcasing the eclectic mix of cuisines from the island’s cauldron of cultures. Foodies will be satiated with daily wellness smoothies and a wide variety of healthy breakfast options on offer at the all-day dining Horizon, whilst vegans and fitness enthusiasts will delight at Bon Manzer offering innovative clean eating; for luxurious dining experiences, Sea.Fire.Salt offers signature seafood and grill with divine Indian ocean views with a feet in the sand option.
The luxury five-star resort is also delighted to soon unveil its Two- and Four-Bedroom Anantara Pool Villas, which are set within tropical gardens and combine modernity with indigenous design in homage to the serene surroundings of the southeast coast of Mauritius.
The new Anantara Pool Villas offer the luxury of flexibility, with in-villa check in and private entrances – guests simply choose between soaking up the sun on the spacious deck, taking a dip in their private pool, or just relaxing ensconced in privacy and luxury. With 270 sqm of space, the Two-Bedroom Pool Villa has all the comfort and amenities required to provide a perfect balance of togetherness and alone time. Generously sized at 395 sqm, the Four-Bedroom Pool Villa is perfect for a multi-generational family holiday allowing loved ones to reunite in absolute comfort while retaining a true sense of tranquillity and escapism.
Nestled in luscious and secluded surroundings, the Anantara Pool Villas are exquisitely designed with a continuation of the resort’s laid back luxe colour scheme and textiles. Inspired by the pristine white sands and accented with pops of tropical colour reflecting the sparkling shades of the Indian Ocean, golden beaches, amber sunsets, green sugar cane fields and rare corals. Indigenous materials honour the warmth and detail of local Mauritian architecture and craftmanship. Spaciously designed, each villa features a comfortable living space with a smart TV, a fully-equipped kitchenette and an alfresco dining area for feasts prepared by a private chef.
A tailor-made experience awaits with a personal butler on hand to cater to guests’ every need, from organising a private breakfast on a desert island or making restaurant reservations, to arranging cultural tours in the nearby cultural and historic town of Mahebourg together with in-room spa treatments.
