Anantara Iko Mauritius Reopens with New Wellness Programme & Pool Villas

Mauritius is reopening to vaccinated travellers for quarantine free travel on October 1st.  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.

The Resort is reopening with a daily schedule of multiple immersive activities including guided forest walks, local cultural tours, snorkelling 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.   These therapeutic experiences can be incorporated into new three, five and seven day programmes tailor-made for guests with spa treatments offered by Anantara Spa.

The Anantara Spa offers a wide range of treatments including Shirodhara Massage and Avant-garde musicotherapy to counterbalance the effects of regular exercise on tired limbs and a 90-minute Anantara Signature Massage, which combines indigenous ingredients such as locally sourced salt scrubs and essential oils infused with flora and fauna native to the island.

Anantara Iko Mauritius showcases an 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 can dine at Bon Manzer offering innovative clean eating; for luxurious dining experiences, Sea.Fire.Salt offers signature seafood and grill with Indian ocean views and a feet in the sand option.

New Two and Four Bedroom Anantara Pool Villas

The luxury five-star resort is also soon set to 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 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. With 270 sqm of space, the Two-Bedroom Pool Villa offers privacy and luxury with a private pool and spacious deck. Generously sized at 395 sqm, the Four-Bedroom Pool Villa is perfect for a multi-generational family get together.

Situated in tropical and secluded surroundings, the Anantara Pool Villas are designed with a continuation of the resort’s laid back luxe colour scheme and textiles. Inspired by the white sands and accented with pops of tropical colour reflecting the shades of the Indian Ocean, 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.

A Two-Bedroom Anantara Pool Villa is bookable with special rates from USD 692 per night on a bed and breakfast basis.  The offer is valid until the end of October 2021. Wellness packages start from USD 475.
