Renovation of Maritim Resort and Spa
The Maritim Resort and Spa is set among the lush gardens of Balaclava and the 25-hectare property was one of the largest hotels of Mauritius when it opened in 1990.

The luxurious 5-star resort underwent an extensive renovation project which included refurbishment and extension works. The resort now boasts 272 rooms and suites, refurbished restaurants, bars, kiosks and other common facilities. The project also includes the new ‘Anno 1743’ restaurant, built from the original French mill found among the famous ruins of Balaclava. Prodesign was appointed to provide M&E consultancy services for the whole project which was split into different phases, a major achievement for us.


Prior to the beginning of the project, we carried out to survey of all of Maritim’s existing M&E services and equipment evaluate their conditions and compile a report with recommendations for the best way to move forward. Several of our MEP engineers and site coordinators have been involved in this project. Our building services engineers have carried out the design of the new block and the BoH building fully on Revit using BIM 360. Hot water production is ensured from a combination of heat recovery from chiller and heat pumps and solar water heating for BoH building. We have used Augmented Reality on site to check the buildability of our design, especially the chiller yard and the pump room. We had a dedicated team providing full-time site supervision during construction and handing over. We have been working closely with contractors to complete the renovation in due time for the re-opening of the hotel.
