MAURITIUS EXPLORE

WE ARE CURIOUS TO KNOW HOW THE PROJECT MATERIALISED?
The Curious Corner of Chamarel was an idea that was first formulated over five years ago. We wanted to create a really unique attraction that would appeal to both local and international visitors and people of all ages from 3 to 103. We have had a team working on this concept for the last 4 years with construction starting in January 2013. The team consisted of a number of Mauritian craftspeople, the CCC shareholders (David Hartshorn and Paul Rose) and a number of
renowned UK artists/designers as well as a genius called Edward Gray who did a truly amazing job.

WHEN DID YOU OPEN TO THE PUBLIC AND WHY MAURITIUS?
We opened at the end of February 2014. Why not Mauritius? We looked and could see that many Mauritians were looking for ‘alternative’ and new leisure based things to do away from the more traditional activities. Chamarel is a great location with fantastic climate. The site has wonderful
green vegetation that has provided the Curious Corner of Chamarel a beautiful tropical garden setting for our cafe and boutique. Chamarel is also home to one of the world’s great natural ‘curiosities’ - the iconic Seven Coloured Earth, so it seemed an obvious location for the Curious Corner to be situated.
HOW HAS THE PUBLIC RESPONSE BEEN SINCE YOU OPENED?
In the 18 months we have been open, we have welcomed many more visitors than we anticipated and have received many many great reviews on Trip Advisor and Facebook. The response has been very satisfying, after a lot of hard work and effort, it has far exceeded our expectations and has been achieved mainly by ‘word of mouth’ marketing, plus the help of IslandInfo.

HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR ESTABLISHMENT?
‘Curious’ a building and garden where nothing is quite as it seems? Where seeing is believing …. Or is it? As the famous French writer, historian and philosopher Voltaire said ‘Illusion is the first of all pleasures’ Or Albert Einstein ‘Curiosity has its own reason for existing’

WHAT IS YOUR ‘STAR’ PRODUCT?
That would be telling! Everyone has their own favorite. One of the great things, is talking to people who have visited and seeing how different people like different exhibits. But the world’s best mirror maze is close to the top of most visitor’s lists. There are multiple interactive attractions and some fantastic photo opportunities for capturing some weird and wonderful
memories.

WHAT IS THE MISSION OF YOUR COMPANY?
The goal of the company is very simple - for all our visitors to have a truly unique and enjoyable experience and go away with a great big smile on their face and ‘curious’ twinkle in their eye.

WHAT MAKES YOUR COMPANY UNIQUE?
Please pay a visit and you will discover!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE TO ADD?
All the team at CCC would like to say a huge thank you to all the people who have visited the Curious Corner and then told their friends, shared their experience, liked us on Facebook or reviewed us on Trip Advisor. Or helped to ‘spread the word’ about the Curious Corner of Chamarel in any other way – merci beaucoup. We really appreciate the generous support we have received from the many ‘curious’ people out there. I personally and on behalf of my partner would like to say well done and thank you to the Curious Corner of Chamarel Team – for their fantastic efforts in helping to create the ‘CCC Experience’. We have received some fantastic comments from our many visitors - so congratulations, thanks, well done and keep it up.

WHAT CAN CUSTOMERS EXPECT IN THE NEAR FUTURE?
We are very pleased to announce that phase II of CCC is almost complete with our new garden based exhibits and photo opportunities being recently opened – with still more to come, so please come and see what’s new. We are now working on our ‘Curious Cuisine’ that our visitors will be able to sample on one of the World’s most unusual dining tables!!!! We have many other ideas in the pipeline to further add to the unique ‘CCC Experience’.
