Beachcomber of Mauritius delegation meets Seychelles Minister of Tourism

Beachcomber of Mauritius delegation meets Seychelles Minister of Tourism ( Mr. Norbert Couvreur, the General Manager of the Seychelles Beachcomber Sainte Anne Resort, accompanied Mr. Robert de Speville, the Commercial Director of the Beachcomber Hotels Group of Mauritius, and Mr. Francois Venin, the General Manager of the Le Canonnier Hotel and of the Le Mauricia Hotel of Mauritius, for a meeting with Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, at his offices at the National Cultural Centre in Victoria.

When he welcomed the Commercial Director of the Beachcomber Hotels Group and his delegation, the Seychelles Minister said that he managed his ministry with an open-door policy and that he was happy to see all the tourism trade members and discuss matters pertaining to their very own establishment.

The Beachcomber Hotels delegation wanted to get the minister`s impression on the tourism industry`s performance for 2014 onwards and to be updated on air connectivity, new hotel developments, etc. The Beachcomber delegation also wanted to keep the Minister responsible for Tourism in Seychelles updated on plans for the Beachcomber`s Sainte Anne Resort. “We have Francois Venin, the General Manager of Le Canonnier Hotel and Le Mauricia Hotel of Mauritius with us as he worked with Norbert Couvreur in the past so that together they can present the list of things to do to further upgrade the Sainte Anne Resort to give it a new `wow effect` from stepping on the Victoria Marine National Park island of Sainte Anne," said Mr. De Speville, the Commercial Director of the Beachcomber Hotels Group of Mauritius. Discussions on getting the Beachcomber Sainte Anne Resort to become a partner hotel of the Indian Ocean Vanilla Islands Organization was also on the agenda at this meeting. Today, the Vanilla Islands already has Constance Hotels and the Mauritius Hotel Group with hotels in the region as one of its partner hotels.

The Seychelles tourism industry has been performing well since Seychelles President James Michel personally relaunched the industry some five years ago and launched the “Seychelles Brand” of tourism which saw the appeal for the Seychellois to claim back their tourism industry by being themselves more involved than before and to move to have culture, and in so doing the people of Seychelles, as the base in the marketing of Seychelles.

This approach by Seychelles has been working well for the islands, recording growth in visitor arrival numbers to be over three times the population of Seychelles and where last year the islands recorded a record in yield from the tourism industry.
