    Trou aux Biches, located in the north-west of Mauritius, reopens in November following an exciting re-build. Capitalising on its prime location, the original Trou aux Biches was completely demolished and rebuilt with a focus on tropical elegance, privacy and luxury. Blending harmoniously with the exceptional ocean-side setting, the hotel has created its buildings and facilities to conform to the most demanding environmental standards. From solar panels to supply hot water, a waste water treatment plant and high efficiency cold-water production units, every effort has been taken to ensure the new Trou aux Biches operates with the minimum impact on its environment. Behind the luxurious new-look, Trou aux Biches has a very ‘green’ heart. The whole hotel has been redesigned to embrace and protect the environment in which is sits. New measures now include 1,000 m² of solar-heating panels to supply hot water; a composting unit able to handle up to 5 tons of green waste every day; drinking water and cold-water pumps have been fitted with flow regulators that will produce a 40% drop in electricity use; a waste-water treatment plant recycles 450m³ every day, of which 300m³ is used for irrigation; and high tech swimming pools fitted with the latest computerised control systems. Additionally, to enhance sustainability, a salt-water desalinisation plant will provide a daily supply of 450m³ of drinking water. This will all ensure Trou aux Biches remains one of the leading Mauritian hotels for many years to come.

    When it reopens on 1st November 2010, the contemporary five-star, village-style resort will provide a range of facilities unique in Mauritius and world-class environmental credentials will ensure its pristine natural environment remains just so.
