The concept of IRS

Published on the

It is important to point out that the concept of Integrated Resort Scheme is in no case specific to Mauritius. Launched for the first time in Dubai, Integrated Resorts became more and more popular around the world particularly in Spain, Portugal, United States, South Africa, Bahamas and Singapore. In Mauritius, IRS has been implemented to allow foreigners to buy world-class luxury villas with commercial facilities and leisure amenities attached to the residential units such as :


  • International-class golf courses
  • Spa and wellness centers and gyms
  • Housekeeping services
  • Concierge services
  • Restaurants
  • Beach club
  • Boat house
  • Maintenance services
  • Rental pool services

It is noteworthy that an IRS unit in Mauritius is sold on an off-plan basis, more specifically by the VEFA (Vente en l’état futur d’achèvement) governed by the Mauritian Civil Code. IRS is meant for the development of luxurious residential units, on freehold land of more than 10 hectares.
