Foreigners arriving in Mauritius can enjoy greater levels of luxury once the island’s border fully reopens. Most players in the country’s travel industry, such as operators of Mauritius apartments for tourists, have invested heavily in refurbishments. They did these projects while tourism is on a lull because of the international travel restrictions following the coronavirus pandemic.
During this period in 2020, prime property development projects on the island also notably stayed onstream. 2Futures, for example, has its projects in Pereybere in the final stages of construction entering 2021. Furthermore, Les Residences de Mont Choisy another project by 2Futures in Grand Baie is scheduled for delivery in the second quarter of 2021.
The strong public health response of Mauritius to the pandemic has made it an attractive destination particularly for foreign retirees and senior citizens. This demographic more susceptible to Covid-19 can experience on the island not only higher levels of luxury. They also have access to facilities and services in a safe and healthy environment.
Le Domaine de Grand Baie is one great example of this amenity available in exceptional Mauritius apartments. Its complex is under the management of Aegide-Domitys, the leader in senior service residences in France. It provides an infirmary and medical coordination for its residents.
Other facilities contributing to the Le Domaine residents’ well-being include a fitness room, as well as a hammam and sauna. The property also provides indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a creative studio, a lounge and library, and a concierge desk.
Game-changer in Covid-19 vaccine
Mauritius is expected to revise its Covid-19 protocols on foreign arrivals as the country welcomes more visitors. Proof of coronavirus inoculation is one requirement certain to be added in the vaccination certificates needed on arrival.
Meanwhile, the government underscored the importance of the tourism sector, as it prioritised its workers in the country’s Covid-19 vaccination programme that began February 2021. In so doing, Mauritius became the world’s first to classify its tourism workforce as frontline and need full coronavirus protection.
The government has also successfully launched a Premium Travel Visa to encourage longer stays in the country. This visa is valid for 12 months and is renewable. It is suited for visitors set for an extended holiday on the island and retirees seeking a Covid-safe sanctuary. The visa is likewise attractive for digital nomads working remotely for clients overseas.
The new visa and other measures to prime up the travel trade bring bright omens for investors on Mauritius apartments for rent. Talk to a 2Futures consultant for the properties well-positioned to capture opportunities on the island’s rental market.
