Speaking about the accolades, Mrs Bernadette Willemin, the Director General for Destination Marketing, stated that she is proud to see Seychelles continue to flourish as a destination.
“We are undeniably proud of our achievements; romance and cruises remain two important segments for the industry. Among the thousands of visitors yearly, Seychelles also receives a large majority of couples that come to celebrate their love in a remote tropical paradise. Our shores have witnessed countless fairytale-like engagements, weddings and honeymoons. We are humbled to be associated with the greatest feeling in the world,” said Mrs Willemin.
Upholding their title, in 2021, the archipelago was named by the World Travel Award as the most romantic destination in the world and the best honeymoon destination in the Indian Ocean.
Seychelles competed against other world-class Indian Ocean destinations such as Maldives and Mauritius. To be awarded the honour of the ultimate romantic getaway consecutively is a clear marker of the destination’s commitment to excellence.
