Reunion Island Tourism fam tour was a fab trip
Last week, heads of works, councils, and associations of members of the National Network of Departmental Group Club Destination (Rn2D) were on Reunion Island as part of a journey of discovery. For five days they were able to discover the tourist attractions across Reunion Island, between visiting hotel establishments, practicing some of the many leisure activities, participating in excursions, and traveling through the multifaceted landscapes of Reunion Island from the beaches into the interior.

After participating in the first workshop organized by the Club Rn2D Group in Brussels last month, Reunion Island Tourism (IRT), in collaboration with five incoming agency partners, received members of the network for an educational tour. From December 8-12, were five leaders of works councils and associations - Arts et Vie, Keolis Voyages, Voyages Girardot Organisation, Perier Voyages, and the Municipal Cultural Center of Rosny-sous-Bois visited Reunion Island to discover it on land, on water, and from the air. 

The program of the five-day fam trip for the group was giving them the opportunity to visit two hotel establishments that have opened their doors in 2015: Dina Morgabine*** and Le Saint-Pierre***. They also discovered the architecture and services provided by La Villa Delisle****, Le Nautile***, the Iloha Seaview Hotel&Spa***, Le Saint Alexis****, and The Bellepierre****. 

The recreational activities provided enabled them to fully experience the essence of Reunion Island, especially when setting sail with a catamaran at sunset over the Indian Ocean; while doing the hike to the Roche Merveilleuse in Cilaos; when visiting the Museum of Decorative Arts Indian Ocean (Madoi); when taking the ride in the lagoon kayak; the excursion to the island's active volcano, the Piton de la Fournaise; when doing the walk in the colorful alleys of the open market of Saint-Paul; and last but not least when visiting the interior region of Salazie and the village of Hell-Bourg.
Across the year of 2015, the IRT has continued to bring travel agents, travel writers, bloggers, and journalists of print and electronic media to the island to promote travel to Reunion Island, and successfully, as in all likelihood the island will see another visitor record this year as a result of relentless marketing and promotional activities.
