Mauritius is an exceptional site, set in a strategic location. It has become a financial hub and is recognised for international trading. The real estate market of luxury villas is booming.
The island is known for its climate, its beautiful scenery, the sandy beaches, the turquoise lagoons and its luxury hotels. Located in the heart of the Indian Ocean, it is accessible from all world capitals by direct flights or via Dubai, with Emirates, which offers a unique “first class” service. The brand new airport, opened in 2014, makes Mauritius the first and only island in the world served by the Airbus A380.
Mauritius has positioned itself as a haven of peace and stability, which ensures the quality and potential of real estate investments. Today, the country is known for the legendary friendliness of its people as well as a stable social, political and fiscal climate. In 2002 the government created certain laws allowing foreigners to invest in luxury residential real estate, offering exclusive and unique advantages.
High class residential resorts began to develop on the island set on the beachfront including luxury hotels with private beaches and golf courses of international renown.
The most successful of them is without doubt the Anahita World Class Sanctuary Resort, within which the Four Seasons Hotel is located and has been nominated best luxury hotel in the Indian Ocean / Africa with its 18-hole golf course designed by Ernie Els.
PRESTIGE MAURITIUS is proud to offer a selection of properties for sale or lease. The legal system in force in Mauritius is based on the French Napoleonic law, which guarantees the absolute and unalterable right to property, both on buildings and the land and offers major tax benefits: no real estate tax, no tax on capital, no right of inheritance.
In addition, buyers are automatically granted the status of permanent resident of Mauritius.
The luxury real estate market in Mauritius has been on an increasing trend since 2006, and has not been affected by the international crisis. Official statistics show that the financial value of the luxury properties increases on average by 20-25% per year, given the very high demand.
