The Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority was chosen as the official partner of the event after the Indian Ocean island was named as one of the coolest destination for 2011 by British Airways and Futurebrand, and voted the “World’s Leading Island Destination” at the World Travel Awards 2010.

The two-year agreement was signed at this year’s ITB event during where the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority showcased holidays in Mauritius, luxury Mauritius hotels and beach resorts, and tourist attractions and sites in the region. The tropical island is famous for its pristine white sand, palm-fringed beaches, sparkling blue warm ocean waters, and array of luxury spas which allow travellers to experience upscale holidays to Mauritius.

The new partnership will allow Mauritius to drive forward the promotion of Island Tourism on a global scale while showcasing luxury tourism at the same time.

The beautiful island’s thriving tourism sector is under the leadership of the Minister of Tourism, HE Nandcoomar Bodha, and the Director of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, Dr Karl Mootoosamy.

Dr Mootoosamy said: “Our new partnership with World Island Awards will serve as an excellent vehicle to promote the core values of Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority – in particular our emphasis on people, the environment and the capacity to ensure customer satisfaction.”

Founder of World Island Awards, Graham Cooke, added: “On behalf of World Island Awards, I am delighted to have the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority as our partner.

“This nation typifies luxury tourism at its finest, and serves a benchmark for how island nations can travel and tourism for social and economic betterment.”

The World Island Awards will reward all areas of tourism throughout island nations across the world and will feature categories such as the “World’s Leading Island Resort” and “Asia’s Leading Island Resort”.
