Nestled on a secluded section of Le Chaland Beach along the south-eastern coast of Mauritius, Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas is a tranquil hideaway, offering natural luxury where guests can immerse themselves in the sounds and colours of a garden sanctuary set amongst the gentle rustling of leaves and the soft lapping of water on the sands beyond. Float gracefully through the crystal blue waters and explore 353 hectares of marine park paradise. Swim amongst swathes of endemic island flora and fauna as the hidden world comes alive around you. Choose to snorkel or view from the comfort of a glass bottom boat and relax in the Indian Ocean sun or dive in to take a closer look. Venture out to explore the Royal Palm Forest and discover such a peaceful and astonishing place where mother nature abounds with a vibrant and tranquil habitat.
The resorts 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. The accommodations feature blade walls to create protected courtyards which define secluded spaces, provide natural lighting, and encourage breezy cross ventilation. Spacious balconies frame views of the ocean or surrounding lush tropical gardens. The interior design of the guest rooms has a contemporary feel with silk soft furnishings chosen in colourways that reflect the soothing blue tones of the ocean and the island’s golden sandy beaches.
Located just 15-minutes from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, via a scenic route of sugar cane fields and papaya groves, the resort perfectly balances coastal seclusion with historical Mahebourg, only 10-minutes away, revealing a rich cultural heritage and naval history. Explore tea plantations and rum distilleries, follow shaded trails beneath ebony tree canopies in protected nature reserves and invites guests to experience traditional Mauritian culture and the island’s spectacular natural wonders. From discovering tea plantations to hiking through tropical valleys, embrace the true beauty of the southeastern coast of Mauritius as you embark on an unforgettable journey of wellness and adventure.
