Ask experts about luxury real estate in Mauritius, and they’d most likely cite the northern side of the island. Their rationale rests on solid grounds, given that the north is one of the most well-developed parts of the country.
The innovative Property Development Scheme (PDS), the template of many real estate projects in north Mauritius, helps bring this about. Wisely, the Mauritian government has injected a social dimension to the PDS concept.
The government requires each developer under this programme to set up a PDS Social Fund. The developers have to contribute to this fund MUR200,000 for each unit they sell in their PDS projects. As an alternative, the developers can support a social project in the region where their developments are located.
The government’s Economic Development Board (EDB) requires developers applying for a PDS certification to evaluate their projects’ social impact. This evaluation on the community impact includes the effect on small local entrepreneurs. The EDB also requires developers to submit a report on their projects’ social programmes for nearby communities.
Thanks largely to the meticulous social programmes of PDS developers, their projects have melded well in the northern Mauritius region. The main village here, Grand Baie, not only has kept its charm as one of the island’s top tourist destinations. It has also become a showcase for PDS luxury real estate in Mauritius.
There is so much to share amongst tourists and residents of the high-end residential developments in and around Grand Baie. The village takes pride in its Grand Baie Bazaar, shopping centres, street food stalls, restaurants, clubs, and bars.
This northern area of the island also features three public beaches—Grand Baie, Pereybere, and Bain Boeuf. The water-based leisure activities in these beaches can extend to small islands off the north coast of Mauritius. One of these, Gunner’s Quoin is ideal for snorkellers, while its neighbors—Flat Island and Gabriel Island—are great for picnics and swimming.
Ki Resort, a development of 2Futures, is one of the PDS projects which has cornered a coveted slice in the northern part of Mauritius. This amazing property is located near Pereybere Beach. It boasts of all the bells and whistles of the luxury real estate Mauritius has become known for. Living in Ki Resort replicates staying in a five-star hotel, as its amenities not only include concierge service and a private pool. Its residents can also access 2Beach Club right on Pereybere Beach and all the wonderful attractions in northern Mauritius.
