On the centre stage
From the little details... From exotic welcomes by colourful Séga dancers, to perfumed cold towels and complimentary cocktails; from private Hospitality Desks for each group to tables, chairs, flipcharts, telephones and equipment for Tour Leaders; from branded corporate gifts to customised 'pillow drops' each night – we handle every aspect for your group.
To the biggest bashes...
Themed evenings include the Robinson Crusoe/shipwreck evening, which starts with a pleasant boat trip to Ilot Mangénie. A Polynesian dance troupe welcomes delegates to the hypnotic rhythms of native drums and guides the group to Robinson's Residence, where a beautiful pirates' buffet awaits the 'shipwrecked' guests.
Or, if your group's tastes run to the exotic, how about an Arabian Night? Begin with aperitifs in the Arabian souk and then move into a white tent on the putting green to recline on multi-coloured cushions and place your orders with waiters in Arabic dishdashas. End with oriental entertainment and a Sheherazade show.
Eager for a genuine beach barbecue? Enjoy a refreshing rum drink, gaze at the flickering bonfire and peruse the mouth-watering buffet laid out under thatched kiosks. Watch your food being prepared at live cooking stations, decked out in sails and fishing nets, and order from waiters wearing tropical shirts and festive hats.
Attend a glittering gala dinner, complete with deluxe canapés, aperitifs on the lawn and a red carpet. Enjoy the sounds of a jazz band and experience a colonial welcome by entertainers dressed in Louis XV costumes. Finally, seat your guests at elegantly laid tables, awash with pearl beads and ribbon, for a 20-minute show.
And everything in between...
We can also arrange Mauritian cooking demonstrations, competitive beach Olympics, a voodoo barbecue, an 'out of Africa' safari, a reggae rasta party, a lobster dinner, an evening of golf and fine jazz, a Chinese lantern evening in a genuine pagoda or an explosive fireworks display.
