Currently under construction by four grade A contractors, the village of Azuri will be delivered in the last quarter of 2013.

The Azuri site is located in the North East of Mauritius, 25km from the capital city of Port Louis and provides a truly unique proposition whereby residents are able to acquire freehold

Azuri is devoted to the celebration of a mauritian lifestyle.

with the year round events calendar, enhance the experience and make it the focal point for an entire region.

The North of Mauritius now benefits from the existence of a superior road network to that found to the South of Port Louis. As such, journey times are far quicker and offer easy access to the extensive range of facilities and activities to be found in the North and East of the island.

Whether you’re looking for a holiday destination or a place to call home, Azuri is the ultimate experience for anyone in search of a better way to live.

Azuri’s value proposition Azuri is today the fastest selling property development in Mauritius, with over 200 residences already sold to both Mauritian and Foreign buyers. •

It is a truly innovative concept, designed by a team of highly experienced international consultants.

It introduces the first truly multi-cultural integrated project on the island – offering a balanced mix of international visitors and local mauritian residents.

A stunning freehold ocean front location overlooking an exquisite lagoon, harnessing a myriad of land and ocean based environments.

The creation of a true year round community that does not leave stakeholders disillusioned at activity drop off in the non peak seasons.

The Azuri team has sought to include the best facilities conducive to a true mauritian lifestyle allowing for easy living and leisure pursuits.

The project is conceived so as to create an open community that is part of Mauritius, not a fantasy world separated by high security barriers.

Azuri is currently under construction and will open its doors during the final quarter of 2013.

Centara Grand Azuri Resort & Spa, Mauritius The Azuri development sits on the unspoilt North East coast of the island – the location of choice for all of the “World Class” hotel properties located in Mauritius. We are delighted to have partnered with Centara Hotels & Resorts to provide the management of the 85 bedroom 5 star boutique hotel and Spa. Centara is an award winning Thai hotel group, with 10,000 hotel rooms across South East Asia, Indonesia, India, Africa and the Indian Ocean. The property will add to the management and range of facilities available to all the residents of the village; not least of which will be a 300 m2 Spa facility and Health Club. One of the benefits to the project of the inclusion of a hotel at Azuri, is the ability to increase leisure and recreational facilities without a requirement to fully support these facilities through the immediate population on the site. In addition, the hotel will be utilised to provide full management facilities for any residential properties on site that will be entered into the “Rental Pool” and as such benefit from providing services to a far wider clientele. The choice of a boutique hotel format is strategically based on the fact that this niche is: •

Poorly provided for in comparison to the saturated 4 and 5 star resort hotel market.

A bespoke proposition in line with the rest of the project.

On a scale that can easily be accommodated without dominating the rest of the project.

A growing format of choice for international tourists.

Leisure activities The unique environment at Azuri provides a wonderful setting for a myriad of activities both within the initial phase and throughout the wider site area. There are six distinctive marine environments within 500m of the site: • River area above the weir • River estuary • Protected lagoon • Area inside the reef

• Beach front • Area outside the reef

This diverse offering has the potential to provide a unique maritime environment and result in a diversity of activities for both residents and visitors. This variety allows both novices and seasoned experts to maximize their enjoyment whether it be underwater or above. Variety is not only restricted to the water. The flora and fauna on the site create a diversity of environments for young and old. Leisure activities as sedate as picnicing, walking or pétanque can be accommodated on a site that is intended to also entertain more high octane sports such as equestrian eventing, mountain biking, “Go Aping” and quad biking. Golf The Azuri team have secured an arrangement with the world famous Le Touessrok Hotel to provide resort membership packages to the residents at Azuri to play their international championship golf course, designed by Bernhard Langer, and voted one of the top 10 courses in the world by “Golf Magazine”.

IRS benefits IRS is short for Integrated Resort Scheme. Residences sold under the IRS regime must form part of an approved development of properties, built to international standards, with world class amenities and facilities. The acquisition of a property for residential purposes by a foreigner under the IRS rules, allows the purchaser, and his/her dependant family, to reside in Mauritius for as long as they retain ownership. A property can be acquired off plan or during the construction phase. Under the IRS regulations, a minimum of USD 500,000 investment is required for the acquisition of freehold immovable property, inclusive of land. However, the majority of other properties developed to date, have been targeted at a much higher price level and the average price for other IRS properties on the island is currently USD 1.6 million. Any of the following will qualify to acquire property under the IRS regulations: •

A non-citizen of Mauritius (including his or her spouse and dependants).

A citizen of Mauritius.

A foreign company registered under the Mauritian Companies Act of 2001.

A person who intends to acquire immovable property under the scheme for residency, and who is a non-citizen, must make an application for the status of resident (in accordance with the Immigration Regulations 1973) in respect of himself/herself and his/her spouse and dependants. When such an application is approved, a residency permit will be granted.

There are two straightforward applications that buyers will need to complete: •

Authorisation to purchase (after signing the Reservation Agreement and depositing 5% to be held in an escrow account).

Residency and Occupation Permit after signing the Deed of Sale and paying the

taxation; levied at USD 70,000 or 5% of the purchase price – whichever is the higher. Pricing In order to establish the Azuri project with occupants at an early stage the pricing strategy we have developed is targeted at being affordable to a wider selection of the local and international market than has previously been possible. Pricing for Azuri starts from USD 500,000.
