Bring your incentive group to Four Seasons Resort Mauritius at Anahita for a memory-making event on the island once said to have inspired heaven. Air access is easy. It’s a six-hour direct flight from Dubai, a seven-hour direct flight from Singapore, or a 12-hour direct flight from London.
This 26-hectare (64-acre) private sanctuary on Mauritius’ east coast offers 136 villas and residences. The ideal group size ranges from 30 to 40 rooms, with options for flexibility. The Resort offers multiple outdoor event spaces, as well as a formal meeting room seating up to 110 people.
Your guests can thrill to the oceanfront finish on the Ernie Els golf course or fine-tune their game at the Golf Academy. (Learn more about Four Seasons golf events!) They can explore all kinds of watersports adventures, or relax with a range of indigenous treatments and wellness classes at the over-water Spa.
The expert Four Seasons event team has also created a variety of uniquely Mauritian activities to make the trip utterly unforgettable:
1. RACE IN A MINI COOPER RALLY: Explore the stunning Mauritian landscape in fun Mini Coopers. Your group is split into small teams of two to four people per car, with a lead driver to guide each team. The teams are provided with a map of the island and a list of different assignments. They might need to cook samosas in a typical Mauritian home, collect a piece of fresh tamarind fruit, or find out which local mountain is known to look like the head of King Kong. The winning team is the one that scores the most. (Note that Mini Coopers are available for groups of up to 20. To accommodate more people, jeeps may be provided.)
2. SHOP TO WIN AT THE LOCAL MARKET: “Anou al bazaar” means “Let’s go to the market” in the Mauritian Kreol language, and that’s what your group will be saying when everyone sets out for a fun shopping game. Your group will be split into teams of five or six people and provided with a set amount of local currency, along with a shopping list of local items – including fruit, vegetables and chicken – and the phonetic spelling of the product names in Kreol. Each team will have to negotiate the price for all of the different items on the list. The winning team is the one that returns with the largest amount of money remaining. On return from the market, group members will use their newly purchased items in a Mauritian cooking class with the Resort’s chefs.
3. MAKE YOUR OWN SUGAR CANE JUICE: Sugar cane is a popular crop on Mauritius, and your group can learn all about it in a delicious first-hand experience. Just a five-minute drive from the Resort, there’s a small sugar cane factory where your guests can witness the production of sugar, before going out into the fields to cut sugar cane for themselves. They then bring the sugar cane back to the Resort, and with the help of Four Seasons chefs, produce their own fresh sugar cane juice from a sugar cane crusher machine. There can even be a cocktail class, so people learn how to use this sweet and refreshing liquid in a variety of drinks.
4. SPONSOR A HORSE RACE: The famous Champs de Mars racetrack in the Mauritian capital city, Port Louis, is the oldest in the southern hemisphere. Its location between the waterfront and the mountain backdrop makes it even more special. In this unique setting, your group or company can sponsor a horse race, taking place every Saturday. The race can be named after your company and various branding opportunities are available on the podium and starting gates. You can watch the races from the racetrack’s lodge, which can also be branded for the day. Four Seasons staff will be on hand to explain the betting rules, and help everyone get into the spirit of the race.
5. SAIL IN A PIROGUE REGATTA: Get your group onboard a fleet of Mauritius’ iconic, multi-coloured pirogues – small traditional fishing boats. Each boat holds a maximum of four people, plus a local fisherman to act as the guide. Groups set sail from the Resort’s beach for a morning race, heading south along the east coast. The fastest team gets bragging rights when the boats arrive for lunch at a coastal restaurant, serving up local seafood specialties.
6. PLAY CLOSEST-TO-THE-PIN GOLF… AT NIGHT: Gather your group for a gala dinner at the golf clubhouse. But begin the evening with a friendly competition. Play the floodlit 18th hole, as competitors chip their golf balls to see who can land closest to the pin.
Various theme nights and evening entertainment can also be arranged, including a gala dinner on the beach, an African dance and fire show, or a party with a transparent dance floor above the swimming pool. Just ask for more details!
