Hotels Recovery Guide Seychelles & Mauritius
The Seychelles and Mauritius have enjoyed strong growth in hotel performance over the last decade, buoyed by robust growth in international arrivals. In 2019, we begun to see this trend slow and anticipated this to continue into 2020. The onset of COVID-19 has therefore, come at a particularly challenging time for both countries. Whilst we expect market conditions to be dramatically impacted due to the global pandemic, there are pronounced differences in the ownership profile and structure in both countries, which will ultimately influence the impact and pace of recoveries.
In this short guide covering Seychelles and Mauritius, we look back at the health of the tourism and hospitality sectors prior to COVID-19; assess the impact of the global pandemic; evaluate the recovery path as lockdown restrictions gradually ease; and provide areas to consider in optimising performance and value in a tough environment.
