Anantara Iko Mauritius is a hideaway coastal retreat on Mauritius' southeast coast, and recently has been awarded the “Continent Win in Luxury Ocean View Resort” at the 2020 World Luxury Hotel Awards.

Untouched with its deserted white beaches and natural, tropical beauty, this is the place to indulge in tranquil moments. Whether you rest your head in the 164 rooms and suites, or opt for a more opulent experience in one of the eight pool villas, all the accommodation is spacious and considered.

While protecting the precious marine life that lives off Le Chaland Beach, Anantara Iko Mauritius offers a variety of non-motorised water sports including kayaking, snorkelling and a glass bottomed boat that lets you view the magical marine worlds below the water. The dedicated resort staff can also arrange other activities including scuba diving and deep sea fishing.

When you’re not spending your day relaxing on the beach or enjoying the watersports offered here, you will find that there’s plenty of other experiences to indulge your senses.

Worship the sun and find inner balance with yoga classes, pilates and meditation on the beach. You might wish to join the Spice Spoons program where you can learn to cook Thai, Portuguese or local Mauritian dishes before watching the sunset with a Mauritian rum cocktail in hand.

Anantara Iko Mauritius has a kids club so any children you bring along are entertained while you take a tranquil dip in the 30 metre infinity pool, enjoy a signature hammam treatment at the Anantara Spa and Beauty salon, or workout at the fitness centre.

The resort can arrange to take you to Avalon Golf Estate, located 40 minutes away and home to a golf course with impressive ocean views, or to a nearby protected nature reserve where you can enjoy a guided tour with an expert naturalist. Or, you can simply stay at the resort and play tennis at the resort’s courts or explore the resort’s library and boutique shop.

Enjoy all day dining and speciality food at the various resort restaurants, which provide dramatic cooking displays and delightful views as you tuck into locally-grown produce. At night, you can head to the pool or beach bar where live entertainment will greet you.

The signature Anantara Dining by Design experience lets you decide the menu and location of a private dinner on Le Chaland Beach.

If you’re seeking a seamless, tranquil experience in a tropical paradise, then Anantara Iko Mauritius is the place for you.

About the location

Le Chaland Beach is tucked away in the Indian Ocean in the southeast of the tropical island nation of Mauritius.

Your luxury holiday in Mauritius should start and end with a tranquil stay at Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas, located on Le Chaland Beach, where idyllic all-year round temperatures invite you to unwind.

Take a scenic 15 minute drive from Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, the main airport of Mauritius, which will take you through fields of sugarcane and papaya groves before you reach Le Chaland Beach.

There’s much to experience at Le Chaland Beach, including sunset cruises, a round of golf with ocean views, and a visit to a rum distillery. You’re also just a ten minute drive from the first town of Mauritius, Mahebourg, which boasts a rich heritage.

One of the highlights of Le Chaland Beach are the eco guided adventures that you can enjoy at the protected nature reserve of Île aux Aigrettes, which is teeming with rare wildlife. Or, you might prefer to dive into the underwater worlds of Blue Bay Marine Park, home to endangered coral reefs.
