In the early 1970’s, Mr Claude Berthier was working as a sales representative for Saint Gobain a French company and for his business activities, he was traveling around the world and notably visited all the African countries.
During his last mission in Africa, he decided to expand his business in the Indian Ocean islands among which was Mauritius Island.
In May 1982, further to the demise of Vivian Noël de Roquefeuil, Mr. Lois Levieux and Mr. Paul “Rico” Chasteigner du Mée took over his investment and provided support to the growth of Casuarina.
In 1989 a second phase of construction began with the development of 52 extra rooms. Then in 1999-2000, the hotel was entirely redesigned to reach its actual size of 94 superior rooms and 15 bungalows, still maintaining the same architectural style and the tropical gardens environment.
In December 2003, Mauritius Commercial Bank took over the stake of Mr. Lois Levieux and heirs and confidently supported the development of Casuarina. In 2006 the Management decided to introduce a unique experience for body and soul to its guests through the opening of a Balinese Spa.
In September 2010, Casuarina became Alizée Resort Management Ltd and launched its second hotel. Le Cardinal Exclusive Golf Resort & Spa was inaugurated by the President of the Republic of Mauritius, Sir Anerood Jugnauth.
The 2 hotels are now part of Alizée Resort Management Ltd which main objective is to preserve its heritage and adapt to the evolving needs of its guests. Alizée Resort Management Ltd remains one of the few independent players in the hospitality industry.
