  Hotels

LABOURDONNAIS WATERFRONT HOTEL 5*
ISWCS 2004 will take place at the Le Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel. The hotel is a 5* Star Business Hotel situated in the Capital of Mauritius, Port-Louis. Five minutes from the financial and business centre, Le Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel is ideally located on the Caudan peninsula along the marina overlooking Port Louis harbour. The hotel offers direct access to the exclusive Caudan complex, Mauritius' premier commercial and entertainment centre (Theme casino, cinemas, 140 shops including a craft market, a mix of restaurants and fast food outlets and day and night entertainment throughout the complex) and is accessible to the main beaches and is approximately 45 minutes drive from them.

 

LE SUFFREN HOTEL & MARINA 4*

Le Suffren Hotel & Marina 4-Star is found just opposite the Le Labourdonnais Waterfront Hotel and is adjacent to "Le bassin du Caudan". It combines the unique charm of a nautical setting with the requirements of modern comfort and quality service, in a trendy decor of light wood and chrome metal. Its innovative artificial sandy beach, open-air swimming pool overlooking the marina, 'avant-gardiste' restaurant and trendy bar are idyllic venues for entertainment. Ideally located within walking distance of the central business distract and government offices, le Suffren is also within easy reach of the many cultural tourist sites in Mauritius and is accessible to the main beaches and is approximately 45 minutes drive from them.

Both hotels are easily accessible from the airport
