TTG Asia's weekly roundup of new hotel openings.
Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas, Mauritius
Tucked away on the southeastern coast of Mauritius on Le Chaland Beach, Anantara Iko Mauritius Resort & Villas is a tranquil hideaway offering secluded luxury. Set around manicured tropical gardens, the upscale beachfront hotel offers 164 guestrooms and suites, with eight additional pool villas set to launch in 2H2020. Resort facilities include a 30m infinity pool, four F&B outlets, spa, fitness centre and a library filled with classic fiction and historical and cultural books of Mauritius.
Sustainable meets luxury at Nirjhara, which sits slightly further afield from the popular Balinese villages of Canggu and Seminyak. Nirjhara means “waterfall” in Sanskrit, which is befitting of the space nestled amidst natural wonder and mere minutes from tourist haven Tanah Lot Temple and scenic beach Pantai Kedungu. The 25-suite luxury hotel in Tabanan offers eight River Pavilions, four River Pool Pavilions, seven Canopy Suites, five Two-Bedroom Pool Villas, and private haven The Residence.
Nirjhara has launched a variety of eco-initiatives. Among others, Ambu, the hotel’s main restaurant, sources over 95 per cent of its ingredients locally, primarily from neighbouring farms in Tabanan. The resort’s menu of spa treatments draws inspiration from Bali’s rich tradition of village healers. Complimentary yoga and meditation classes are also available on-site.

MJ One Group by Major Development has launched the Maven Stylish Hotel Hua Hin, located right in the heart of the resort town of Hua Hin, next to the famous Night Market on Petchakasem Road.

On-site facilities include a cafe serving Thai delicacies, a pool bar, and a versatile function room.
