Business in Mauritius

We all think of Mauritius as a paradise island… but what differentiates it most, apart from luxury hotels, beaches and friendly people, is a welcoming business environment and subsequent investment opportunities. Situated in the Indian Ocean, Mauritius is a central point for trading and developing business with Africa, Asia and Australia. Also, an advantageous taxation system, transparent regulation and a diversified economy combine to make the island an incomparable investment hub. Tourism plays a major part and the government has introduced the Integrated Resort Scheme (IRS), which is an excellent facilitator for property development. You’ll find that all Ninety-Six hotels offer world-class business facilities for conferences and meetings, the finest among them the Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel, with its revamped conference centre and capital city location. Let’s meet in Mauritius…

Destination Guide

Mauritius is so much more than a beach holiday; it’s a distinctive destination that offers a wonderful array of cuisine, culture, history, architecture, leisure, entertainment, sports, natural wonders, investment opportunities and business prospects.

Culture & History

Where cultures combine and history abides

In Mauritius, a dizzying but harmonious blend of African, Chinese, European and Indian influences is delightfully embodied in the island's cuisine, culture and history... in its remarkable architecture, too, and in the number of religions and languages. Such diversity is the inherent charm of Mauritius and a deep sense of pride and unity is evident in every warm Mauritian smile, at every cultural event or religious celebration, and in every tribute to tradition or history.

The pleasures of leisure in Mauritius

A few of our favourite suggestions include relaxing on an idyllic beach, cruising on a catamaran, diving or golfing or visiting the newly open Odysseo Oceanarium, the largest oceanarium in the Mascarene Archipelago and the first of its kind in Mauritius...Indulge every sense in delicious cuisine from Mauritius to the Med, East to West, or enjoy a fun night out with entertainment on tap. Cocktails, anyone? Plenty of hip and happening bars and lounges to choose from. If shopping`s your thing, join us on a craft market trawl or China Town explore. Afterwards, enjoy an I Spa massage or cool off in an open-air pool.

Great nights out

Always sunny by day, but at night the stars come out to play! Mauritius is host to a small but exciting nightlife and you will be warmly welcomed at lively clubs, beach bars, cinemas, theatres and sports bars. Enjoy live music events and dance till dawn with international DJs or sit back and relax at a concert with the island`s best musicians. At our hotels, get together with friends on Fridays, or kickstart the weekend with a glamorous fashion show or entertaining concert. Mix and mingle at a fabulous pool party or dance the night away with one of our resident DJs.

Made-for-you malls and markets

Make a beeline for Mauritius` craft markets and bazaars, which are uniquely appealing in their colourful, dynamic offerings shop till you drop in various shopping malls, or enjoy the wonderful atmosphere of the Port Louis markets with exotic fish and vegetables, clothing, hand-crafted local goods, such as baskets, wooden and traditional handicrafts, local jewellery and sensational souvenirs. The Caudan Waterfront shopping complex, with over 170 designer boutiques, is a shopper's dream with luxury clothing, jewellery and duty free shops.
We love all things festive and fun – and Mauritius wonderful festivals throughout the year celebrate the best in music, art, film, literature and drama. Remarkable festivals have, over the years, become highlights on the Mauritian cultural calendar, and include Porlwi by light, Festival Iles Courts, Chinese Spring Festival, the Bread Festival and Festival International Kreol. There’s something for everyone.

Family fun in the sun

Mauritius is a family-friendly playground and Ninety-Six Hotels provide perfect start points for all the activities and excursions you can imagine. Discover Casela Wildlife Park or picnic at Black River Gorges, snorkel in Blue Bay, don`t miss Ile aux Cerfs for beach and water activities, Domaine de L`Etoile for hiking, horse riding and zip lining or visit the Crocodile & Giant Tortoise Park or L'Aventure du Sucre Museum. Explore cultural diversity in Port Louis, enjoying friendly locals, cuisines and crafts.
