KPMM has recently extended beyond South African borders and is now registered in Mauritius, which it views to be a country that is stable, politically sound and with promising growth potential.
KPMM (Mauritius) Ltd has identified a breath-taking, untapped section of coastal land in the south west region of Mauritius that lends itself to the establishment of a hotel and leisure resort. KPMM (Mauritius) Ltd has teamed with the Minor Hotel Group to build and operate the 5-Star AVANI Bel Ombre Mauritius Resort and Spa.
MINT is a major player in the tourism industry at the global level and officially opened a regional office in Johannesburg with a view to strengthen its position and maximize opportunities in Africa. Minor Hotel Group, a subsidiary of MINT is an international hotel owner, operator and investor currently with 155 hotels worldwide.
Following discussions with MINT, KPMM believes the most suitable brand for this property would be a 5 star Avani. Be it a leisurely family break or romantic escape, AVANI hotels and resorts provide the right space for relaxed and inspired comfort. Discerning service, relaxed dining and engaging recreation facilities for all guests are a given. AVANI Bel Ombre Mauritius Resort and Spa fits perfectly into today’s fast-paced lifestyle, appealing to millennial-minded global citizens. People who aren’t defined by age but by mind-set and common values. They share a love of design, technology and are adept at balancing work and play.
The core notion driving AVANI is that the brand is social-at–heart. It beats with energy, creativity, friendliness and spontaneity. The open spaces and service style, honest food, business offerings and communications, all exude a social vibe.
The design aims at taking advantage of the 475m of pristine beach frontage. A major feature of this design is that we have retained the majority of trees present on site and used them within our design to create a unique vibe and experience. Due consideration has been given to climatic factors prevailing in Bel Ombre. We have oriented the buildings in a staggered manner to protect strong winds from getting into the buildings, to give them views towards the sea and to maintain privacy. Extensive terraces have been provided to the rooms for the tourists to enjoy the enchanting atmosphere around.
As the guest enter the property, they enter the main lobby overlooking the main restaurants and swimming pools. The buildings have been positioned in a logical manner to have easy control of both the tourists as well as any visitors while still creating a relaxed and jovial atmosphere. The 150 room, 5-Star hotel will include 3 luxurious restaurants serving a wide range of cuisines form part of the dining facilities for the hotel and are located in such a way that they can be easily accessed and serviced. In addition, guests from the three restaurants will have a good view both the swimming pools and the beach while enjoying their meals; we have also provided a beach restaurant. The complex is planned in a relaxed manner. Gardens create cozy spaces and we have planned for an Artist corner, which shall allow tourists to have first hand experience of various possible forms of local Arts & Crafts. In line with the requirements of a 5 star hotel, a full gym as well as a kids play area has been provided. A Spa providing a full range of wellness services has been strategically located under the existing trees.
One side of the site will accommodate 12 luxury villas with separate access and parking spaces. The villas will offer a private and luxurious retreat for the guests. The villa’s will consist of four luxurious bedrooms, all en-suite, with splendid views of the beachfront while having a private pool.
Bel Ombre is situated on the South West coast of Mauritius. The Site has 475 meters of beachfront protected by reefs resulting in safe swimming areas in a tranquil environment. It has over 69000 m2 of flat land area covered by exquisite lines and rows of beautiful trees.
