Cascavelle Shopping Village has received a new lease on life since it reopened its food court on December 15th, following several months of renovation work. The previous food court has been completely remodelled into a friendly, modern, tastefully designed place of life and is home to some of Mauritius’ leading restaurant chains, including McDonalds, Dewa & Sons, Debonairs and Steers. There is something here for everyone, young people and families alike!
The launch of the new food court marks the first phase of Cascavelle Shopping Village’s new wing, which is scheduled to open in mid-2019. In addition to its many restaurants, it will offer leisure areas including a bowling alley and a splash pool for children, and will position the shopping centre among western Mauritius’ leading destinations for recreation and food.
During the festive period, a special atmosphere pervades Cascavelle Shopping Village. In part, this is due to the Christmas decorations that adorn it, but the highlight of any client’s visit will be the discovery of the new food court, whose fast-food outlets and restaurants offer cuisines from around the world. Having officially opened on December 15th, the Cascavelle food court will welcome some twenty brands by early 2019. The inimitable McDonald’s is already present, as are Debonairs, Steers, Olive Tree and Artisan Sandwich. Popular Mauritian brands such as dholl puri maker Dewa & Sons, Caprices d’Horizon and Juice Bar among others have set up shop in kiosks in the centre of the food court. While most of these establishments opened in December, other openings are planned for early 2019. These include La Rose de Damas, which offers Arabic cuisine, as well as Illico, Chutneys, Pitaya, Ni Hao, Jacksons and P-Cup.
In addition to new dining facilities, which have more than doubled in number, the food court represents a new space for life in the West. In addition to its modern and elegant décor and its generous volumes, green spaces are given pride of place.
“We have completely revamped the Cascavelle food court, maximising its space, but also refreshing its architecture and décor to create what is probably one of the West coast’s best dining destinations. The former food court has been expanded by 2,000 square meters and a leisure offer has been added. Once it is open, the mall’s new wing will offer Mauritians a friendly and welcoming environment as well as a first-rate dining experience”, explains Patrick Boullé, Operations Manager for Medine Property.
Cascavelle Shopping Village therefore aims to become the West’s favourite destination, by offering a wide range of shops and restaurants as well as spaces for leisure and entertainment and by meeting the needs of everyone, from children to young people and students to families.
The centre’s offer will in fact revolve around leisure. A new playground has been created, and from April 2019 onwards, the mall will be home to a 675m2 children’s splash pool offering sea views and allowing parents to do some shopping or go to the supermarket while their kids enjoy a refreshing water activity. The splash pool will be managed and supervised by a reputable operator from Reunion.
As of June 2019, the shopping centre will also be home to a 10-lane bowling alley – the first on the West coast and the largest in the country. Next to it, will be located an Italian and a Japanese restaurant as well as a lounge bar whose terrace will offer magnificent views of the West coast and the sea. And finally, Lakaz Cascavelle will shortly reopen in a brand-new space, expanding Cascavelle Shopping Mall’s leisure offer yet further.
“In addition to the redesigned food court that is already open to our visitors, a brand-new wing will be launched in the middle of next year. This new offering, which will be focused on dining and entertainment, will completely reposition Cascavelle Shopping Village in line with the vision for Uniciti, the Medine group’s Smart City”, emphasises Hubert Harel, Managing Director of Medine Property.
