Beachcomber Resorts and Hotels in Mauritius launches new app for teens

Beachcomber Resorts and Hotels has rolled out a new app at two of its hotels in Mauritius which will connect teens during their stay. The Teens Club Beachcomber app and social network have been designed to connect teens to other young guests staying at the property.

Currently available at Victoria Beachcomber Resort and Spa and Mauricia Beachcomber Resort and Spa in Mauritius, the app will encourage teens to take part in fun activities at the hotels. Teens must meet with the hotels’ entertainment teams and have their parent’s consent to download it, and it is available on Android and iOS phones.

Aimed at teens aged between 12 and 17, the app encourages young guests to interact and enjoy activities together. Users will create a profile, specifying the dates of their stay and their interests. They will then have access to the hotel’s activities and they can create chats with other guests. Teens will receive notifications about events, and teens can even create their own. Using geolocation, the app will also tell users when their new friends are nearby. Once the guests leave the resort, the app is deactivated from their phones.

"When it comes to engaging with young people staying at our hotels, this mobile app is an asset: it's trendy, easy to use and dovetails perfectly with Beachcomber's vision of innovation. The creation of the app and its implementation at the Victoria and Mauricia was a memorable adventure."

Explained Rico Paoletti, the General Manager of the Victoria Beachcomber and Mauricia Beachcomber.

The app was created with the aim of enhancing the holiday experience for teenagers whilst keeping in touch with the trends of young people. Beachcomber teamed up with AGILEUM, a leading IT consulting and system integration company, to produce the app and social network and it was first tested at Victoria Beachcomber in 2016. The app will soon be available at the group’s Canonnier hotel.

Victoria Beachcomber Resort and Spa is located on the north-west coast of Mauritius and has family-friendly guest rooms, suites and two-bedroom apartments. The oceanfront hotel’s facilities including swimming pools, a beachside kids club, a teens club, a diving academy, four restaurants, and a luxury spa. Mauricia Beachcomber Resort and Spa sits on the north coast of the island overlooking the beautiful Grand-Baie. The luxury hotel has a variety of accommodation options including two-bedroom apartments, and facilities including a spa, swimming pools, sports centre with a hammam and sauna, three tennis courts, a diving centre, two restaurants, and kids’ clubs.
