matalaAt the end of the road leading to the entrance of the Black River Gorges National Park, we find the Matala IRS, conceptualised and developed by Andrew Smith. This sailing & outdoor enthusiast, who came to Mauritius 27 years ago out of his love for surf, sea & sun, was also the conceptualiser of what is today the luxurious Balise Marina. He has since then fulfilled his desire to integrate upmarket residences with the surrounding nature by developing the prestigious Matala IRS project. Matala is above all the vision of someone in love with life. It conjures values that are dear to him, such as sharing and integration. It is with this synergy that the designer has imbued this extraordinary IRS that has conquered the residents. Cosmopolitan and lively, Matala intends to be a village at the heart of the island’s endemic forest. And the least we can say is that Andrew Smith has met the challenge …

With large green spaces embodied with ebony trees and indigenous plants, a small stream running through, coupled with a breathtaking view of the Piton de la Petite Rivière Noire, this place is a real haven of serenity nestled in the midst of a luxuriant nature. To these should be added the monkeys, deer and forest birds, including the famous Pink Pigeon, which can be seen on the edges of Matala’s clearing at breakfast time! This residential development bordered by woodlands is only a stone’s throw from the only marina on the west coast…
