HONOLULU—Outrigger Enterprises Group opened the Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa, which welcomed its first guests on January 30, 2014. 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 expansion of the Outrigger brand into the Indian Ocean is the latest development showing the strategic commitment of Outrigger to open stunning resorts in desirable and iconic warm water beachfront locations around the world,” stated Darren Edmonstone, managing director, Asia-Pacific, Outrigger Hotels and Resorts.
“Ownership of the property in Mauritius gives Outrigger the unique opportunity to share the locally-rich sense of place and discovery that guests look for when they go on holiday,” he said. “The wonderful warmth, color and exotic mixes that characterize Mauritius can now be experienced at the new Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa.”
Outrigger purchased the property in May 2013 and has completed an extensive refurbishment program.
The Outrigger Mauritius Resort and Spa General Manager, Frederic Chretien, stated, “The Outrigger dream for Mauritius has come true. From today we are delivering our acclaimed Outrigger hospitality that blends the needs of the most discerning traveller with the charm and tradition of an early 17th century Mauritian sugar cane plantation on the island’s southern coast.”
