32 bed Commercial in Mauritius
The Wybrandt Hotel project represents a great opportunity for the discerning investor. The hotel will be the only 3-star facility, a mere ten minutes drive away from the Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport, Republic of Mauritius.
With its strategic location and the type of services which will be available the project is considered a significant development for airline operators. There are hardly any hotels which can cater and provide accommodation for transit passengers in the area.
The project has the support of major airline operators who view this as an opportunity to provide great facilities to their passengers and alleviate this particular bottleneck.
Wybrandt Hotel will occupy the second to the fifth floor of Patten Court, a centrally located luxurious commercial building situated in Mahebourg.
It will consist of 30-32 bedrooms and each will have an area of approximately 20 to 24 square metres as well as a reception hall, a relaxation area for customers and a business service centre. These facilities will all be on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th floors of the building.
The 5th floor will be dedicated to a fine dining restaurant and a conference room.
Parking facilities will also be available for up to 10 vehicles. It should be noted however, that most passenger transfers will be carried out by taxis or coaches.
In addition, the hotel offers a wonderful view of the surrounding areas. The magnificent South-East coast of the island is 250m from the building.
According to the Ministry of Tourism, the number of transit passengers has increased from 25,000 to 80,000 between 2006 and 2008.
This has created a significant bottleneck with regards to accommodation in the surrounding area for these passengers who have to travel 25km or more to the nearest hotel.
Wybrandt Hotel aims to address this particular gap in the market by providing accommodation for transit passengers and we have already gained significant support from airline operators as well as travel agencies who would be happy to recommend the hotel to their customers.
Moreover, 20% of tourists visiting Mauritius spend their holidays in the South-East.
This is another market which this particular project could tap into.
