Mauritius has been honoured with the titles of the Indian Ocean’s Leading Adventure Destination, and the Indian Ocean’s Leading Wedding Destination, at the World Travel Awards 2021.
Happy couples choose to tie the knot in Mauritius due to its exotic beach locations and superb accommodation options. The stunning island scenery offers the perfect backdrop for romantic wedding ceremonies, providing an idyllic honeymoon destination.
Meanwhile, thrillseekers are heading to Mauritius in growing numbers for unique adventure holiday experiences, with mountain hiking, kitesurfing and various other water sports attracting enthusiasts from all over the world.
Demand for vacations in Mauritius is increasing rapidly, as consumers in its key markets respond to changes in travel restrictions, which have made holidays easier to arrange. Air Mauritius has ramped up flight capacity from France, South Africa, Réunion and the UK over the coming months, and other airlines are doing the same.
Since 1st October, vaccinated travellers have been free from quarantine on arriving in Mauritius providing testing requirements are fulfilled. Recognition at such a prestigious awards ceremony is expected to increase demand still further.
Arvind Bundhun, Director of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, said: “It is a real honour for Mauritius to be recognised as the Indian Ocean’s Leading Adventure Tourism Destination for 2021, as well as the Leading Wedding Destination in the region. We are very proud of the range of experiences we offer to visitors, and we are delighted to see voters’ appreciation.
