The objective of the seminar was to update the travel trade partners about the latest developments in Mauritius. Vivek Anand said, “The responses of the travel trade partners in all five cities were awe-inspiring.” More and more Indian travellers are planning to travel to the affordable luxury destination ‘Mauritius’. We are getting enquiries for quite a few Indian weddings. Film producers are also showing interest in shooting Bollywood movies in Mauritius.
He added, “Mauritius offers amazing activities for adventure lovers like sky diving, ziplining, quad biking, seakarting, submarine rides, helicopter tours and also life time experience of walking with the lions and safari. Rum and tea tasting tours are also gaining popularity among the tourists. Those who are sports minded, can enjoy a game of Golf at one of the many championship level courses in Mauritius. Indians while in Mauritius will definitely enjoy long drives, shopping, night life, delicious cuisines or simply rejuvenate themselves at the world class spas. Mauritius is a perfect MICE destination. Besides its natural splendour, the island has all the key facilities required for organising successful meetings, conferences and events. Luxurious hotel accommodations and attractive wedding packages make Mauritius a popular wedding destination. The DMCs and hotels are geared towards providing all facilities required for large Indian weddings.”
