Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels – one of the pioneers among the renowned hotel groups in Mauritius – has long been committed to the promotion of cultures and traditions through local artistic creation. This is why the group has now launched Be Artstanding: a remarkable and innovative initiative, aiming at freshening up its entertainment offer through its 5* hotels.
Art, in all its splendour!
With the success of “The Art of Beautiful”, which has set its creative positioning, Beachcomber Group wishes more than ever to reflect these artistic values. Be Artstanding, designed in partnership with Move for Art, aligns with the group’s strategy to enhance and sublimate customer experience. This initiative promises original and contemporary creations through two signature shows, namely Tropical India and Wild Island, as well as light shows in the hotels’ gardens.
As pointed out by Geraldine Koenig, Chief Officer Operational Excellence de Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels,
“We wish to give a new dimension to Art within our establishments. This begins with highlighting our local cultural heritage and supporting Mauritian artists through entertainment.”
A beautiful mix of culture with Tropical India
This unique show, directed and choreographed by Yashvynee Dhonow and Anna Patten, gives a beautiful and colourful picture of Mauritian and Indian influences and cultures. Beachcomber group thus pays tribute to the richness of this cultural and artistic syncretism anchored at the heart of the Mauritian heritage.
Wild Island, an ode to the traditional sega
This rhythmic performance translates the island’s musical and cultural heritage. Immerse in an emblematic universe staged and choreographed by Nicholas Mandarine, Guilllaume Jauffret and Jérôme Couchart. Between the crackling sounds of a fire lit on the beach and the jolting rhythm of the ravanne, Creole songs with spellbinding melodies intermingle with the Mauritian sega typik and its folk dance.
Luminous fairy tale experience
While Beachcomber’s customers have been lulled by Be Artstanding’s songs and choregraphies since the beginning of 2020, an artistic initiative was launched last year to create a dreamlike experience in the gardens. Le Chant des lucioles and Networked Trees, designed by Naziha Mestaoui, call for contemplation, as projections and light devices blend in the elegant setting.
Beachcomber hence offers to its clientele, from its eight resorts, exceptional moments through the island’s art of living and multiculturality, enhanced by its craftsmen’s know-how.
