Mauritius bags two titles at World Travel Awards

DUBAI, October 28, 2021

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.
Couples choose to tie the knot in Mauritius due to its beach locations and accommodation options. The island scenery offers the ideal backdrop for romantic wedding ceremonies and providing an idyllic honeymoon destination.
Meanwhile, thrillseekers are heading to Mauritius in growing numbers for adventure holiday experiences, with mountain hiking, kitesurfing and other water sports attracting enthusiasts from all over the world.
Demand for vacations in Mauritius is increasing, as consumers respond to changes in travel restrictions. 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 October 1, vaccinated travellers have been free from quarantine on arriving in Mauritius providing testing requirements are fulfilled.
Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority Director Arvind Bundhun said: “It is an 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 proud of the range of experiences we offer to visitors, and we are delighted to see voters’ appreciation.
“Wedding days are the highlight of a couple’s life, and the fact that visitors from all over the world are choosing Mauritius as their ideal location to exchange vows is a feather in our cap. We have also seen many couples announce their engagements in our hotels and resorts.
“These awards are a testament to the hard work, commitment and dedication of our tourism industry workers over what has been a challenging period. We look forward to welcoming more holidaymakers and wedding parties throughout the summer season.”
