Mauritius Tourism partners with Dnata to attract UAE travellers

Collaboration will showcase experiences beyond the beach

Mauritius Tourism has appointed Dubai-based Dnata Representation Services as its sales, marketing and PR representative in the UAE, to provide localised booking support, top rates, latest news and itineraries to UAE-based travellers.

In recent years, Mauritius has become an increasingly popular destination among UAE-based travellers. With a 62% increase in travellers from the UAE to the country recorded by Mauritius Tourism between 2015 and 2023, passenger arrivals continue to show steady growth in 2024. 

Popular locations across the island for UAE travellers include the beaches of Flic en Flac, Tamarin and Le Morne on its West and South West Coast, where visitors can experience impressive natural landscapes while staying in luxury resorts. Beyond the beaches, attractions include the '7 Coloured Earth' in Chamarel (pictured).

Dnata head of Representation Services Rakhi Purohit said: “Mauritius is a location known for its world-class beaches, but it offers much more for travellers. From hiking in national parks to enjoying diverse culinary experiences, as well as some of the world’s most unique natural landscapes and picture-perfect golf courses.”

Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority chairman Donald Payen added: “A key element we want to showcase to UAE-based travellers is what Mauritius can offer ‘beyond the beach’. The island offers a harmonious melting pot of culture, traditions, abundant immersive experiences and appetising gastronomy. Our all-inclusive offering in four- and five-star resorts is also impressive, and working with Dnata, we hope to bring top rates and experiences to the forefront for the UAE market.” 

Travellers can fly directly to Mauritius from the UAE with Emirates’ double-daily service from Dubai operated by A380. The flight duration is approximately six hours and 35 minutes.
