A panoramic view of the new Anahita World Class Sanctuary in Mauritius

MAURITIUS based Anahita World Class Sanctuary is opening its doors on June 1.

Managed by Anahita Residences and Villas, this vast 213 hectare property at Beau Champ, Grande Rivière Sud Est, is set in luxuriant vegetation and bordered by a coastal lagoon.

Alec Bathfield, regional sales and marketing manager for the company will be at Arabian Travel Market to discuss the new opening.
The Anahita development forms part of the Deep River Beau Champ Sugar Estate on the eastern coast of Mauritius, a coastline renowned for its calm lagoon waters.
All facilities and amenities are designed and constructed to the highest international standards and reflect the eclectic combination of cultures and the coastal fusion of traditions and styles that are distinct to the island of Mauritius.
