Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has appointed Global Destinations as its sales and marketing arm in India, effective immediately. The Republic of Mauritius, located in the south west of the Indian Ocean, attracted nearly 76,000 Indian visitors in 2019.
On 1 October, Mauritius reopened its international borders to double-vaccinated international
travellers, including those from India. Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort, managed by Hawaii-based Outrigger Hospitality Group, offers guests 181 ocean-facing rooms beside a white sand lagoon in the south of the island, adjacent to the nature reserve of Bel Ombre. It is known for its serene setting, premier amenities, locally inspired entertainment and diverse dining options, including Mauritian Creole flavours.
“We are honoured to welcome back guests from India to Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort,” said the property’s General Manager, Cyrille Carmona. “With our new partner Global Destinations, we look forward to showcasing both our beachfront resort and the scenically beautiful south of the island including where Bollywood movies were filmed.”
Carmona promised to deliver a unique Mauritian vacation, offering both tranquility and adventure to major segments of the Indian market, including couples, multi-generation families, honeymooners, dining, soft adventure, and ecotourism enthusiasts.
Pranav Kapadia, Founder of Global Destinations, said: “With Mauritius opening its borders, there couldn’t be a better time to announce our new partnership with Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort.” He said the aim would be to build a strong Outrigger brand presence in the Indian market. “Our objective as Global Destinations is to generate business for Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort from multiple segments such as FITs, couples, honeymooners, weddings, families and more,” he said. Snorkelling, kite surfing, mountain biking, e-biking, forest hiking, waterfall discoveries and educational flora and fauna tours in the adjacent UNESCO biosphere reserve are all popular with resort guests. The lagoon fronting the property is home to more than 70 species of tropical fishes and abundant coral – preserved, in part, by Outrigger’s ZONE (OZONE) global conservation initiative. In the resort, children can delight in fun activities at the complimentary Coral Kids Club while adults find tranquility at the Navasana Spa. “Whether your clients are a family or couple seeking relaxation, spa pampering or an adventurous getaway, the Outrigger Mauritius Beach Resort has something for everyone,” said Kapadia.
