Seychelles target high-end travellers

Article content

21 October 2009

The Seychelles islands have been highlighted as an ideal choice for luxury travellers.

Maurice Loustau-Lalanne, chairman of the Seychelles Tourism Board (STB), was quoted by Xinhua as stating that high-end holidaymakers around the world are being targeted.

"We don't want to make the holiday crowded or destroy the environment, so we make it expensive," he said. "It's a principle for our tourism promotion."

Mr Loustau-Lalanne was commenting as the STB held a seminar in Beijing in a bid to promote Seychelles holidays to those living in China.

According to the news source, the expert noted that 16,000 visitors travelled to the archipelago last year.

Meanwhile, Conde Nast Traveller has named three beaches in the Seychelles as being among the 16 most luxurious in the world.

Anse Source d'Argent, Honeymoon Beach and Bird Island all featured in the list, with the latter's corals and white sand noted as being particularly attractive to holidaymakers.
