LONDON (March 21, 2013) — Interval International, a prominent worldwide provider of vacation services and an operating business of Interval Leisure Group (Nasdaq: IILG), announced the affiliation of Fun Club Mauritius. The shared ownership apartments are within Plage Bleu, a gated beachfront development close to Grand Baie, a popular tourist centre on the island of Mauritius.
“This property is a tranquil alternative to larger resorts in the area, yet it’s only a short walk to some of the island’s best swimming beaches along Trou aux Biches and a short drive to shops and nightlife in Grand Baie,” said Darren Ettridge, Interval’s senior vice president of resort sales and business development for Europe, Middle East, Africa, and Asia.
The open-plan units at Fun Club Mauritius include 10 apartments, two penthouses, and two villas. The apartments have a private lawn or large balcony with barbecue and outdoor seating. Furnished to a high standard, the air-conditioned units have full kitchens and laundry facilities. En suite amenities include flat screen TVs with cable service, DVD player, and iPod docking station.
The resort’s manicured grounds surround a large swimming pool with shaded loungers. Guests also enjoy housekeeping and concierge services, and complimentary Wi-Fi. Just across the road, cars or scooters are available for visitors who would like to tour the island.
Renowned for its tropical beauty and moderate climate, with year-round temperatures ranging from 22 to 300C (72 to 860F), Mauritius is a popular vacation and honeymoon destination for Europeans because no entry visa is required.
“Our goal was to create a private and tranquil home from home experience for families on vacation,” said Mahendra Ghumundee, CEO of Fun Club Mauritius. “We are proud to partner with Interval International and confident that members who visit us on exchange will have memorable stays.”
Mauritius is approximately 1,200 miles off the south eastern coast of Africa and is served by major airlines, including daily flights from Johannesburg. The resort is a 50-minute drive from the International Airport Plaisance SS Ramgoolan.
