Heritage Resorts and Veranda Resorts were present at the World Travel Market in London, from November 3th to 6th. It was the occasion for the two Mauritian hospitality brands to present their new projects and reward their business partners during the Heritage Resorts Award ceremony.

Veranda Resorts launches Pop-Up Moments

Veranda Resorts has seized the opportunity of the WTM to present the brand new attraction it will offer its guests as from end of November: the pop-up moments (Pop-Up Moments). This new, simple and attractive concept is about a bunch of surprises tailored to vacationers’ quiescence. The signature phrase – “One day. One set-up. One feeling.” – defines it all.

Once a week, guests are unexpectedly invited to live a magical and fleeting moment on the beachfront. They can choose between two distinct ambiences to make the most of their holiday retreat.

With Coco’lidays, vacationers are invited to enjoy a 100% natural coconut water drink in an informal setting. Ideal for adults as well as for kids, it allows for a cool break before taking a dive into the pool.

With the Sunset Moments, a truly Mauritian experience awaits our guests as the sun goes down. While Veranda Paul & Virginie will favour a romantic atmosphere for couples, Veranda Grand Baie, Veranda Palmar Beach and Veranda Pointe aux Biches will set a festive atmosphere in line with the local art of celebrating.

During the presentation of its Pop-up Moments at the WTM, Veranda Resorts has taken the opportunity to provide tasting of the so-exotic and trendy coconut water. Coco’lidays was launched in partnership with Coco Up, a Mauritian brand which markets 100% natural coconut water.
