Marriott International plans to launch its Aloft brand in the capital city of Mauritius with the signing of Aloft Mauritius Port Louis.
Slated to open in early 2019, the hotel will be the brand’s first adaptive reuse project in Africa. Located in the central business district area of Port Louis, the existing nine-floor office building will transform into the city’s newest destination sensation complete with 150 rooms, accessible technology and a hip, social atmosphere.
Designed for today’s always-on-the-go and in-the-know traveller, Aloft Mauritius Port Louis will introduce stylish and affordable accommodation and amp up the island’s hotel scene with tech-forward features, distinctive design and buzzing social spaces. Delivering urban-influenced design and an energetic guest experience, all rooms will offer harbour or mountain views and feature platform beds, large walk-in showers and complimentary Bliss amenities. Guests can also expect the brand’s signature WXYZ bar, a buzzy public space where they can catch up on emails, read the papers, play a game of pool or grab a drink with friends, as well as a Re:mix lounge – Aloft’s twist on the traditional lobby experience.
Designed with the needs of the savvy next-generation traveller in mind, the hotel will offer SPG Keyless, a keyless entry system that enables guests to use their smartphone or Apple watch as a room key.
Other features will include a Re:charge fitness centre; a rooftop destination bar and pool with stunning views, Re:fuel by Aloft, a 24-hour deli option for those on the go; as well as two meeting spaces supported by an In-Touch business area. Fast and free wi-fi will be available throughout the property.
