IC Mauritius Opening 2009

I saw on ICHG website that the Intercontinental Mauritius resort is opening in 2009. See link below

http://www.ichotelsgroup.com/interco...tels/mauritius

Does anybody know where exactly it will be and when it is due to open?

I went to Mauritius 5 years back on my honeymoon, stayed at the excellent The Residence which was a fairly new hotel back then, it is now one of the best hotels in Mauritius with prices reflecting that at around 350 per night for a standard room.

Being RA I would love to go back and get the perks such as suite, club access and of ocurse free minibar.

All info will be appreciated.

The IC will be located in the bay of Balaclava, just north of Mauritius' capital, Port Louis.

It was scheduled to open in late 2008, but apparently they now pushed back the opening to 2009.
