Market Spotlight | Mauritius

Posted on April 25, 2016 by sothebysrealty

“Referred to as the ‘Pearl of the Indian Ocean’ and renowned for its pristine beaches, lagoons and reefs, Mauritius has been a successfully colonized region by the Dutch, French and British until its independency was achieved in 1968. A tropical island with a myriad of sea and land produce, Mauritius showcases an encompassing urban life with contrasting beautiful mountainous interiors of rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and native fauna. Its 330 kilometer coastal line and in-land lifestyle make it a prime tourist destination and a heavenly island blessed with a multitude of cultural influences. Since 2004, the government opened up the island to foreign homebuyers with access to permanent residency, creating high demand for homes, giving rise to luxury residential developments. Access to golf estates, beachfront resorts, integrated villages and marinas make Mauritius an ideal market for the Sotheby’s International Realty® brand. We are truly excited about our investments here and our goal is to deliver exceptional customer service through our best in-class associates, whom reflect our prestigious brand position.”
