Mauritius tourism stakeholders will be pleased with the outcome of the World Travel Award Ceremony earlier in the week in Qatar, when the country scooped several major awards, against stiff competition from amongst others their fellow Vanilla Island competitors. The Trou Aux Biches, operated by fancied Beachcomber resort group, was given the much coveted World’s Leading Beach Destination award, while Air Mauritius scooped the Indian Oceans Leading Airline recognition. Needless to say, Mauritius international airport Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolan International, already crowned best airport in Africa last year, was voted as the Indian Oceans Leading Airport too. Mauritius overall was also declared as the Indian Oceans leading destination to the delight of Mauritians present at the award ceremony. Hilton rounded up the winning announcements when their Hilton Mauritius Resort and Spa was named as the Indian Oceans Leading Resort.
Well done indeed and congratulations to Mauritius and the tourism industry for their extraordinary effort to get into the award books once again.
