Seychelles’ Tourism Minister pleased with level of standard following visit to small and large accommodations on La Digue
Tourism property owners on La Digue truly understand the importance of the tourism industry and go to great lengths to offer high standards of care to visitors coming from all over the world.
The Minister for Tourism, Civil Aviation, Ports and Marine, Mr. Maurice Loustau-Lalanne said this on Friday last week, after visiting tourism properties on the island, as part of his ongoing door-to-door visits to holiday accommodations in Seychelles.
This was his first visit to tourism businesses on La Digue -- the Seychelles’ third inhabited island -- since he took charge of the tourism portfolio in December last year.
Accompanied by the Principal Secretary for tourism Mrs. Anne Lafortune, they visited 14 tourism establishments -- from a one bedroom self-catering apartment to a 70-room hotel – ranging from quite recently opened accommodations to those that have been standing for a good number of years.

The Seychelles Tourism Board not limiting efforts to market the destination through digital means in Brazil
The Seychelles Tourism Board (STB) office in Brazil has been increasing efforts to develop creative and diverse online marketing strategies to promote the destination, as it aims to increase the number of visitors from the South American nation.
Global Vision Access (GVA) -- a tourism marketing and communication company -- has been the Seychelles’ representation company for Brazil and South America since 2012. Founded by Gisele Abrahão in 2009, GVA’s vision is to effectively stimulate an important way of thinking for tourism trade and media professionals in Brazil -- a country with over 200 million inhabitants.
As part of its efforts to make Seychelles more visible, the Sao Paolo-based company launched a special Seychelles course on its e-learning platform at the beginning of the year. Ms Abrahão said
The Seychelles islands will once again be welcoming the Four Seasons Private Jet in October next year as part of its new 2018 ‘World of Adventures’ private jet experience.

For the 2018 expedition, guests joining the hotel industry's first fully-branded private jet, will be spending three weeks touring countries across multiple continents.
Starting off in Seattle on October 19, they will travel to Kyoto, Bali, Seychelles, Rwanda, Marrakech, Bogotá, and the Galápagos Islands before their voyage comes to an end in Orlando on November 11.
