Hotels and Resorts announced that it has purchased from Dubai-based
Kingdom Hotel Investments the 181-key Movenpick Resort and Spa Mauritius in the
island nation of Mauritius in the Indian Ocean from Dubai-based Kingdom Hotel
Investments. The transaction closed on May 29, 2013, for an undisclosed amount.
The Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa sits on the southwest
coast of the Republic of Mauritius, located roughly 2,000 kilometres off the
southeast coast of Africa. Just a 45-minute drive from the international airport
and a similar distance from the capital of Port Louis, the resort is surrounded
on three sides by the nature preserve of Bel Ombre. All 181 rooms face the
ocean, offering views of the resort's white sand beach and the turquoise waters
of the Indian Ocean.
When it reopens, the resort will have three
swimming pools, a 1,800 square metre spa, three restaurants, and a children's
club and pool. The renovated resort also will have an exclusive Club level of
guest rooms and suites with all the personal touches that Club guests are
accustomed to receiving.
The Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa will be the first
property for Outrigger in the Indian Ocean. Since starting its expansion into
the Asia-Pacific region in 2008, Outrigger has grown its presence to include
properties currently open or under development in Bali
Thailand, the two most popular resort destinations in Asia; as well as in Phi
Phi Island, Thailand;
Hainan Island, China; and Quy
