New Holiday Inn hotel opens in Mauritius
Dubai, December 12, 2013
Leading hospitality company InterContinental Hotels Group (IHG) has opened the new Holiday Inn hotel in Mauritius, its second property in the country.
The hotel is located just 700 m from the new SSR International Airport and 45 km from the capital, said the IHG in a statement.
The 140-room hotel is surrounded by gardens carefully landscaped to preserve the natural botanic diversity, it said.
The names of the hotel’s food and beverage outlets pay tribute to the proximity to the country’s airport and the history of air trips and travel in Mauritius: its all-day dining restaurant, ‘1933,’ is named after the year the first international flight was made from the island and ‘Piper Navajo,’ its bar lounge, is named after the first type of plane used to link Mauritius island to Rodrigues island in 1972.
The new hotel will also cater to the country’s growing business travel community with 450 sq m of meeting space, including a boardroom and four meeting rooms. It also features gym and spa facilities.
Jean-Eric Sirop, general manager, said: “The combination of the building and ground’s unique character, with its prime location close to both the airport and Mauritius’ beautiful beaches, will make this a popular hotel for business and leisure guests.” - TradeArabia News Service
