Seychelles has been gaining prominence in some of UK’s top publications.
Seychelles has been listed as a bucket list destination by Melan Mag – an online lifestyle magazine primarily (but not exclusively) for women of colour living in the UK.
Melan Mag’s article entitled ‘5 Long-Haul Holidays to Add to Your Summer Bucket List’ was published on March 1, 2018.
It describes Seychelles as an affordable destination, with new transport and accommodation options, while highlighting the islands’ glorious beaches, exceptional hospitality and natural surroundings.
“A lot of people don’t know about the island nation’s vibrant art scene, which features renowned painters, sculptors, writers, poets, musicians, and dancers to whet your appetite for some stunning works of art,” the article adds.
Having recently interviewed Oprah Winfrey and Reese Witherspoon, the online magazine, which features thought-provoking content on fashion, health, beauty, travel, and lifestyle, is quickly gaining momentum.
Recently, Seychelles was also listed among the 25 best destinations for winter sun by The Telegraph -- one of the biggest newspapers in the UK, with an outreach of almost 1.2 million.
The article published on February 28, features an eye-catching, dreamy aerial photograph of the Seychelles shoreline, beckoning anyone who sees for a visit.
The Telegraph describes Seychelles as a honeymoon haven, but also highlights its suitability for other holidaymakers, other than newly-weds.
“The idea of a ‘Lost World’ is implausible today, but this chain of Indian Ocean islands does a sterling impression of an escapee from an Arthur Conan Doyle novel,” states The Telegraph.
Other publications highlighting the Seychelles’ uniqueness as a holiday location in the UK since the beginning of 2018 include the Daily Mirror, the Express, Evening Standard and Mail Online.
The increased visibility is due to the relentless efforts of the Seychelles Tourism Board and its PR partners to ensure that the archipelago’s tourism attractions gain media exposure globally, from top tier to niche outlets.
The Chief Executive of the Seychelles Tourism Board, Sherin Francis said: “In an ever-growing competitive travel and tourism industry, it is important to stay one step ahead and push these efforts, ensuring widespread media coverage.”
