The Old Manor House, which is situated near Plaisance Airport, is going to be converted into the first Holiday Inn Mauritius. Mauritius is continuing to see an increase in visitor numbers and with that, an increased demand for a range of accommodation options.  With Holiday Inn, we are responding to this demand by catering to the mid-scale market and offering a global brand that people know and trust.  A Holiday Inn at the airport is a perfect complement to our InterContinental Resort Mauritius which opened in 2009, and we’re delighted to be expanding in this market.” said IHG's COO, Pascal Gauvin.

I believe in setting goals and working very hard to achieve them. My goal was a weekend on the Sinfonia, so how surprised I was at the office when a Sinfonia cruise from Durban was announced
 as an incentive at our opening meeting for the New Year. This was one boat trip I wasn’t going to miss. Being the only person from Cape Town to achieve the criteria to qualify for this cruise was unbelievable!!! People teased me saying that I would be alone, little did they know about the “THE MSC SINFONIA” hehaa!!! I travelled with Mango Airlines to Durban and had an AWESOME Flight, best seat on the plane and enjoyed sunrise up in the skies. At King Shaka Airport the friendly  MSC staff greeted me & directing the way. There were quite a lot of people at the airport and we were assisted quickly. The excitement started  building on the shuttle from the airport to the harbour and the rain couldn”t even stop us. Wowww what an amazing sight when you are up close with this vessel. The minute I set foot on the Sinfonia all my fears sank and I was speechless. All the staff on the Sinfonia, you guys rocked my world! I have never experienced such hospitality, from that 1st step, the buffet, the restaurants, the shops, the cabin maids & just everybody. YOU WERE ALL  ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! Keep it up. The entertainers wow wow what a ball I had. I participated in a show & I must admit “WHAT A SHOW”. I bought the DVD & some photos and hopped onto my Mango flight from Durban. At home, my friends & family asked if I was at a photo shoot. They re-played the show on the screens everywhere on the boat & I felt like a celebrity. I’m saving every penny as I wish to take my family along on my next cruise. The 1st words from my hubby on my return at the airport was: ”Did you ever sleep?”  I must confess I hardly slept there was just so much to do …… I got my friend so excited she’s  booked her family on the 2014 cruise.
