Mauritius Poised To Exceed One Million Arrivals In 2014


Ever since a slight downturn in 2009, Mauritius has been steadily making progress in its goal to eventually see more than 1 million arrivals during a single travel season. Now it looks like there is a good chance they will reach that goal in 2014. The number of arrivals from Europe and China has been pretty impressive thus far, despite a minor drop in the first quarter of this year.


News reports say the number of Chinese visitors to Mauritius has already doubled over the same period last year. The UK, Germany, and South Africa have also contributed larger numbers than in the past. If current trends continue as expected, Mauritius could hit that golden number of one million before the year is out.


What is so important about one million arrivals It is important in the sense that tourism is the number two industry in Mauritius. What's more, both the government and private sectors have invested a lot of money in the tourism sector since the crash of 2007/2008. All of that investment has been designed to return the island nation to that place it occupied on the world stage prior to the economic meltdown.


All indications suggest that Mauritius is on the right track. It is developing its tourism trade with new resorts, like the newly opened Outrigger Resort & Spa, as well as concentrating on bringing more competitive sports to the region. And of course, Mauritius golf holidays are unlike anything else in the Indian Ocean. The island has a number of championship level courses combining idyllic settings with challenging golf.


In anticipation of growth that is expected through 2023, the government has also opened a brand-new terminal at the nation's main airport. The terminal can accommodate enough arrivals to boost airport capacity from 2.7 million to 4 million. That is important given the distaste international travellers have for slow and inefficient airports.


Looking to the Future


If the Mauritius tourism sector is to enjoy the steady growth it is expecting, the island nation will to need also continue developing infrastructure. That means new roads, upgraded utilities and easier access to the parts of the island tourists want to see most. From Grand Baie in the north to Bel Ombre in the South, Mauritius has too much to offer to make certain regions difficult to access.
