About this property
MONT CHOISY BEACH
Mont Choisy Beach, just a few minutes walk from the western gates of the estate, is among the most beautiful in Mauritius. Stretching almost three kilometres from Trou aux Biches to Pointe aux Canonniers, this is the island’s longest beach: a gently curving strand of golden sand lined with a shady grove of filao trees on one side and by gentle, crystal-clear aquamarine water on the other. It’s the perfect beach for long walks, frequent swims and romantic sunsets.

CELEBRATION OF CONTEMPORARY ISLAND LUXURY
We have used the term ‘barefoot luxury’ to define the quality of the environment we are creating at Mont Choisy. Our choice of materials, finishes and colours engage with the environment to create a magical and sensual experience… A timeless and elegant dream getaway.
Designing in Mauritius is both similar and totally different at the same time. Similar in that one wants to capture the spirit of the place and different in that on an island, luxury is about tranquility, space and relaxation
Our simple palette of natural materials will be allowed to age and acquire a patina. Naturally bleached timber cladding will be complemented by walls of local stone. Interiors will feature granite countertops and travertine tiles. And everywhere, the principle of integrating indoor and outdoor living into a seamless experience will be echoed by the integration of the built environment into the magical landscape of Mont Choisy.
On what is without question the most significant development site in Mauritius, the talent of master architect Stefan Antoni of SAOTA , renowned throughout the world for their contemporary masterpieces, brings a 21st century interpretation of ‘island style’ living.

THE GOLF COURSE
Grand Baie’s only championship course by the world’s leading ‘land-listener’…
Set on the breathtaking Northern part of the island, the golf course is set to become one of the favorite and most popular golf courses in Mauritius.
The 18 hole course will feature unique Mauritian landscaping and the distinct feature will be black volcanic rock ‘outcrops’. The rocks and rolling grasslands will provide the backbone of the landscaping. Ponds and other water features will add character to the course and natural sand hazards will blend seamlessly in the grassy surrounds. Large palm trees around the clubhouse will keep a watchful eye on events taking place on the neighbouring greens
Following a successful international golf career alongside champions like Jack Nicklaus and Gary Player, Peter Matkovich found his true calling as a golf course designer. His uniquely organic design philosophy, which he describes as ‘listening to the land’, has succeeded in creating courses that have won acclaim and affection across Southern Africa.
Between the Vibrancy of Grand Baie and the Beauty of the Beach
The first hotels in Mauritius were built in Grand Baie for good reason. Vibrant sunsets and sunrises, deep-water lagoons, long sandy beaches and the offshore islands of Coin de Mire and Ilot Gabriel. Protected from the South-West winds and rains that affect the rest of the island, Grand Baie is by far the most popular tourist destination on the island.
Mont Choisy beach is recognised by Mauritians as one of the most beautiful on the island and this 3km strip is the western boundary of the estate. The Northern and Eastern boundaries being a vibrant mixture of shopping centres, restaurants and night-life.

Mauritius already attracts around 900 000 tourists per year and aims to increase tourism by 50% over the next five years, with its new airport opening in 2013, upgrades to the road network constantly in progress and an ever-increasing number of new shopping malls and entertainment facilities.
The island is connected to the SA-SAT-3 fibre optic cable, enabling high bandwidth connectivity with Europe and Asia. This, coupled with the fact that there are daily flights to Europe, South Africa and Asia, means that Mauritius is ideally positioned to do business on an international level.
Mauritius has been recognized as the one of the best administered economies in Africa and offers an ideal environment in which to do business. This is partly due to the low level of taxation, with a flat corporate tax rate of 15%. In addition, there is no inheritance tax, no capital gains tax and Double Taxation Agreements have been concluded with 33 countries, including the United Kingdom, France, South Africa, India and China.
