Air Mauritius will boost its frequency from five weekly flights to a daily service to London and move its operations from London Heathrow Airport to London Gatwick Airport from 29th October 2023. The move is welcomed by British tourists and second home owners who according to a study by Trip Advisor put Mauritius as a top 3 trending destination in 2023.
As a holiday destination Mauritius attracts over 1.3 million tourists each year to enjoy its beautiful turquoise sea, lush tropical beauty and high end hotels. The island is also a popular place to live and own a holiday home. From 2014 to 2022 Mauritius issued a total of 1,198 residence permits to UK nationals of which 11% are retirees.
The lifestyle and 2,900 hours of sunshine a year are a big draw, but so too are the high-quality amenities, good infrastructure and services, and a hospital system that meets international standards. There are also many favourable tax advantages such as no inheritance or wealth tax, no foreign exchange controls, no capital gains tax and foreign ownership of property is allowed.
The leading resort community in Bel Ombre, Mauritius, Heritage Villas Valriche has welcomed the new flights and believes the improved accessibility will make Mauritius even more attractive to those looking for a holiday home in the sun.
Heritage Villas Valriche is a collection of 288 luxury villas and is in its last phase of development in a unique location in the preserved south of Mauritius.
Sales Manager Christophe Piquet says: “The additional flights are a bonus and makes the island even more accessible. With only a 3 hour time difference between us and the UK there is no jet lag when you travel here, and that also makes working from here easier too.”
The development has now introduced some stunning contemporary villa designs, with an excellent choice of ocean, golf course or mountain views. Beautifully arranged within mature landscaped gardens and palm lined avenues, the luxury collection of contemporary villas have been designed by a leading team of architects to complement the stunning natural surroundings. In addition, there is also a range of generous plots of sale for those who would prefer to design and build their own luxury residence.
Villa ownership comes with an electric golf cart to get around the estate, and privileged access to a range of world class facilities and services, including golf club membership, access to an exclusive sports centre and pool, a private beach club and to two 5* hotels Heritage Le Telfair and Heritage Awali with spas. There is also an excellent choice of first-class restaurants and bars to choose from.
The estate will appeal to nature lovers as it is close to an azure blue lagoon teeming with marine life and there is an enchanting nature reserve to explore, on the doorstep.
Each villa is built on a private land plot ranging from 600m2 to 2,600m2. 1 000 m2 plots start from $552,633 and off plan contemporary villas start from US$1,300,000 including land and registration fees.
The development is part of the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS) which gives owners residency rights for the owner and their family.
