St Regis Hotels and Resorts has recently celebrated the official opening of its first hotel on the African continent.

The St Regis Mauritius Resort made its debut in the African and Mauritius hotels industry last week and the opening celebrations were enjoyed by celebrities and the island nation's Prime Minister.

St Regis Hotels and Resorts belongs to Starwood Hotels and Resorts Worldwide and as part of its expansions the brand has recently opened new properties in Hainan and Shenzhen in China, and Doha in Abu Dhabi.

"As we add new, must-visit destinations to our global portfolio of hotels and resorts, the opening of The St. Regis Mauritius Resort truly marks an important milestone for the brand," commented Paul James, the Global Brand Leader of St. Regis, The Luxury Collection, and W Hotels Worldwide. "Celebrating Mauritius' rich and diverse cultural heritage, we look forward to welcoming guests to the best address on the island, offering bespoke service and refined elegance both befitting of the destination and true to the St. Regis legacy."

The festivities at the launch celebrated the history of the St. Regis brand from 1904 to 2013 and included speeches by the Prime Minister of Mauritius, Dr The Hon Navinchandra Ramgoolam and the President and CEO of Starwood Hotels and Resorts, Frits van Paasschen; cocktails and an epicurean tour; and a spectacular fireworks show and live music.

The luxury Mauritius hotel is located on the south-western tip of the Indian Ocean island surrounded by the pristine white sandy beaches and turquoise lagoon waters of the Le Morne UNESCO World Heritage site.

During Mauritius holidays, guests can relax in luxurious accommodation in 172 spacious guestrooms and suites that range from 700 to 2,300 square feet and boast ocean views. The St Regis Villas has four bedrooms with private pools and gardens, a private entrance, entertainment and dining areas, an infinity pool and private spa treatment room.
