SUN RESORTS’​ COVID-19 UPDATE – FRANCOIS EYNAUD GROUP CEO Comments Off on SUN RESORTS’​ COVID-19 UPDATE – FRANCOIS EYNAUD GROUP CEO 1579

We are facing an unprecedented situation since COVID-19 has been declared a worldwide pandemic. Most of the countries around the world have opted for a lockdown to stop the virus.

In Mauritius, confinement measures have been extended to the 4th of May 2020.

As a consequence, we at Sun Limited have temporarily suspended all our operations in our 7 properties, namely Long Beach, Sugar Beach, La Pirogue, Ambre and Ile aux Cerfs in Mauritius and Kanuhura in the Maldives, as well as our branded hotels Four Seasons Resorts Mauritius at Anahita and Shangri- La’s Le Touessrok Resort and Spa.

We have taken all precautions to make sure that our associates are staying safely at home. As a family, we contact them regularly to ensure that they lack nothing.

We ensured that every single guest from our resorts reached home safely.

We are already missing them all!

As per our plan, we have decided to maintain the last phase of renovation for Sugar Beach as soon as the lockdown will be ended. Our guests will enjoy a great new experience as from October with a fully renovated hotel.

For Long Beach, La Pirogue, Ambre, and Kanuhura, bookings are open and we hope to welcome back our guests as soon as the borders reopen.

 Our reservation teams are working from home and are available for any help in planning your next holidays.

To facilitate any decision, we have decided to set up flexible policies. Until further notice, for all new bookings done through our website or reservation centre, modification, change or even cancellation up to the day prior to arrival without any cancellation fees will be possible.

If bookings are done via online travel agencies, tour operators, travel agents or any third parties, their respective cancellation/refund policies will be applicable.

Stay safe! We are looking forward to welcoming you back soon.

François Eynaud

CEO of Sun Ltd

HOSPITALITY SENTIMENT SURVEY 2020 – DELOITTE Comments Off on HOSPITALITY SENTIMENT SURVEY 2020 – DELOITTE 1126

The COVID-19 outbreak brought the world to a standstill, and the hospitality sector is one of the hardest hit economic sectors, mainly due to the introduction of travel restrictions. In Mauritius, the hospitality sector represents a fair share of the economy and one of many forecasts made about the impacts of the pandemic is a contraction of 20 percent, which will span over the next three to five years.

The sanitary crisis has also other unquantifiable impacts on the tourism sector including the loss of livelihoods of locals, loan repayment commitment of impacted businesses, low to no occupancy rates of hotels that may lead to temporary or permanent closure, and cash flow issues.

In the face of these hardships, the Government has come forward with certain supporting measures such as the extended Wage Assistance Scheme for tourism sector, prolonged loan moratoriums and low interest rates, the waiver of the rental payment of state lands for the upcoming financial year to tide over the liquidity issues. The Mauritius Investment Corporation (MIC) has also been set up to propose investments in eligible companies through different investment tools including both equity and quasi-equity instruments. 

The Deloitte Hospitality Survey report provides the market sentiment of the leaders from the major hotels, resorts, villas, and business hotels in Mauritius on the budgetary measures, the current challenges, key focus areas, and the way forward for hospitality industry in the current and post-COVID times. Whilst the report conveys what people shared during the survey, it also provides Deloitte’s point of view based on our global and industry expertise.
