The look and feel of the stylish new resort have been created by award winning Ground Kent Architects, Australia, and Abacus Design interior designers of Thailand, in collaboration with the Office of Global Architecture in Mauritius. 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, drift wood 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 be launching Q2 next year.
