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.
The Four Seasons Private Jet landed in the Indian Ocean archipelago for the first time in November last year as part of its ‘Cultural Escape' tour.
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.
An up-close encounter with nesting seabirds, endemic bird species, giant land tortoises, and depending on the season, a nesting sea turtle -- these are what conservation lovers are being invited to discover by visiting the small Seychelles’ island of Cousine.
Located some eight kilometres off the west coast of Praslin -- the Seychelles’ second most inhabited island -- Cousine is now offering day visits for small groups.
The new excursion experience on the secluded island, also home to a small boutique hotel, is open to both Seychellois and tourists.
Describing what the excursion has to offer, the Guest Relations Manager on Cousine Island Mrs. Michelle Pretorius said visitors would be welcomed by the conservation team upon arrival, who will brief them on the island’s conservation programme.
Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas, located at Cote d’Or on the Seychelles’ second most populated island must be doing something right to impress German visitors.
For the fourth consecutive year, Le Duc de Praslin has been rated highly by HolidayCheck -- the largest German-speaking portal allowing Germain visitors to review their travel and holidays experiences.
HotelCheck Awards are given to establishments scoring highly based on excellent reviews received from visitors.
Le Duc de Praslin Hotel & Villas was awarded a grade of 5.6/6 for 2017.
The owner and General Manager of the hotel Mr. Robert Payet said constant effort to improve services and standards is essential to keep up with clients’ growing expectations.
