Tourism, a very important sector in Mauritius and also one of the main the topic of this study, has been an ever expanding industry in Mauritius. As the sugar prices have fallen on the international level and the production of textiles was not as profitable as before, the tourist industry has been the solution to be concentrated on. Tourist policy in Mauritius promotes high class tourism due to limited availability of space and the need to adopt environmental conservation measures while maximizing income. Preferring high class tourism by the way discouraging low budget tourism, the Mauritian government favors luxury hotels, four and five stars resorts with golf courses, and spas. Tourism in Mauritius is concentrated mainly on the high-spending European market.
Mauritius had approximately 18,000 visitors in 1970. Between 1985 and 2000, there was an increase in tourists’ arrival by approximately 340%. A big percentage of tourist arrivals are from Europe, with France supplying almost half. Moreover, Reunion Island is the most important short haul source market for Mauritius accounting for almost 13% of total tourist arrivals. Asian residents account for 6% of tourist arrivals, almost half of which came from the Indian Sub-Continent. Tourist arrivals in 2004 were almost 720,000. In 2008, 970 482 tourist were reported to Mauritius. Tourists are mainly French and British, Mauritius is considered to be an expensive tourist destination and therefore, air travel and accommodation are generally expensive. Most tourists are on package holidays and there is very little independent travel or backpacking. But still, there are tourists who come to Mauritius independently and therefore do not come on package holidays. So as to enhance up – market tourism, charter flight have been forbidden, high standards resort hotels have been built and there are high standard of cuisine and excellent service quality.
