Price War Results In Great Deals For Mauritius Travellers

A slight drop in the number of arrivals in Mauritius for the first quarter of 2014 has led to a price war among hospitality operators on the island nation. While that means fewer profits for hotels and resorts, it is very good news for travellers by way of lower prices. Travelling to Mauritius has never been more affordable than it is right now.

A May 12 report from Reuters cited Sun Resorts as one example of how the price war is affecting hoteliers. The combination of a 3% drop in occupancy and special cost-cutting promotions to attract new visitors ended up in first-quarter pre-tax profits of 24.5 million rupee (an 82 per cent drop).

It is no secret that the tourism trade has been struggling ever since the global economic downturn of a few years ago. In recent years, destination countries have been pulling out all of the stops to encourage more arrivals to their shores. In Mauritius' case, the country has done everything from building a new airport terminal to improving the roads in and around the capital. The private sector has been building new hotel properties and refurbishing old ones. Mauritius family holidays have also been at the forefront of tourism promotion. Where the island used to be thought of only as a romantic destination for couples and honeymooners, things have drastically changed. Tour operators and hotel owners have made a point of developing family-friendly options that include all sorts of accommodations and activities.

For example, it is difficult to find a luxury resort in Mauritius that does not offer a dedicated kids club. These clubs provide activities that will keep the children happy and busy throughout the day, all while being supervised by trained staff.

On Water and Land

Anyone who has been to Mauritius knows it is a great destination for any family, regardless of individual preferences. There is so much to see and do. For example, those who love the water can go diving, snorkelling, water skiing, parasailing and even touring the beautiful waters in a glass bottom boat. Onshore, you can go hiking, ride bicycles, play tennis, or enjoy a large selection of activities that take place right on the beach.

Of course, those who appreciate shopping and nightlife love the Grand Baie region on the island's north side. Those looking for a golf holiday have no shortage of world-class courses to choose from. No matter what your tastes are, there is something for everyone in Mauritius.
