Creating a quality label for the Vanilla Islands

Creating a quality label for the Vanilla Islands ( The Vanilla Islands Organization has the mission of contributing to the development of tourism in the Indian Ocean and to promoting standards of quality and service.

To allow the development of inter-island combined efforts to spearheading its activity, it is essential to put trust in both tourism professionals and consumers.

For this reason, Xavier-Luc Duval, Deputy Prime Minister of Mauritius and President of the Vanilla Islands, announced upon taking office on June 10, that a mandate was given to the Mauritius Tourism Authority and especially to its President, Robert Desvaux, to establish a classification system for all tourist accommodations.

This ranking process will start on the island of Mauritius in the next few days and will quickly expand to the other islands and become a reference in the Indian Ocean. Representatives from the Seychelles and Madagascar have already made it clear that they will support this effort.

Gateways are planned with Atout France’s classification for Reunion Island and Mayotte, in order to present harmonization between the islands. This Vanilla Islands label will give confidence to tour operators and various customers, by providing an official guarantee of quality of service and comfort.

According to Pascal Viroleau, the organization’s Director, “We will be able to say, for example, that a three-star hotel in Mauritius corresponds to a three-star hotel in Madagascar, as well as the other islands.”
