Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has unveiled Crystal, a unique meeting space in the south of the island. This new concept opens opportunities for the resort in the events and MICE sector, from meetings and conferences to exceptional gala dinners and weddings.
Crystal is a fully air-conditioned transparent marquee. It measures 33 x 17.5 meters, can seat up to 250 people in banquet style and sits on a rooftop area of the hotel giving a wonderful view of the Bel Ombre coast.
The resort setting is ideal for events: 181 sea-facing rooms offer a breathtaking beachfront location alongside the turquoise lagoons of the Indian Ocean. Nestled in the nature reserve of Bel Ombre, the property is only 45 minutes from the airport,
A permanent structure, Crystal can be adapted for many needs. It can be used as a classic conference venue with pitch-dark option, or semi-transparent with ocean views, both incorporating the latest audio-visual technology.
“Crystal is unique in Mauritius and repositions the Outrigger as a full-on MICE destination for events, incentive meetings, weddings and banquets,” says Cyrille Carmona, deputy general manager of the resort. “With Crystal, the sky is the now the limit.”
The Outrigger, highly acclaimed for its dining, now has five food and beverage venues which can deliver MICE events for up to 250 covers.
Carmona says the key MICE points for the Outrigger are its five food and beverage outlets, including Crystal; all the resort’s rooms and suites are sea facing with a private terrace and balcony; there are spacious beachfront, garden and poolside venues for events; customized menus for beach parties and weddings, all the way up to wine and gala dinners; advanced audio-visual services; technical and secretarial services for businesses; lighting and ambience support; live entertainment, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
The Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has a dedicated MICE team that tailors proposals and accompanies groups during their events. This team has created a range of original MICE services including team-building activities, nature retreats, personalized wellness experiences, themed gala dinners and private outdoor events.
“With the opening of Crystal at the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, I believe we now have a total package — a very compelling proposition for MICE event organizers worldwide,” says Carmona.
