The Kuoni’s Cup in Mauritius
The first edition of the Kuoni’s Cup was held at the 5 hotels in the Sun Resorts group, at the end of a sales challenge organised from 1st March to 20th April 2013 for Kuoni, Sun Resorts and Air Mauritius, in partnership with the MTPA and Summertimes. So 25 travel agents and top salesmen took part in the challenge and were selected to participate in the final in Mauritius ; most importantly, they discovered an icon in Mauritian hostelry, La Pirogue.
The warm welcome at La Pirogue
After a wonderful flight with Air Mauritius, the participants were welcomed to the beautiful surroundings of the Hôtel La Pirogue in Mauritius, to the sound of musicians and traditional Sega Mauritian dancing. They enjoyed a really relaxing breakfast on the banks of the lagoon, before being divided into 11 teams of three people each, fighting fit for the first trials of the day.
Trials really bringing out enthusiasm
The KUONI CHEF trial (its name derived from ‘MasterChef’) was a great success for the participants, in the gardens of the Hôtel La Pirogue with the Chef Murday and Clency Romeo, the hotel manager as the board for this tightly-fought competition. After a much-needed lunch in this typical Mauritian resort, the teams battled it out in the KUONI EXPRESS trial (its name derived from ‘Peking Express’) in which they discovered all of the hidden treasures of the 4-star Hôtel La Pirogue in Mauritius and its sister hotel, the Sugar Beach. On this first day, the “Hibiscus” team won, as it awaited the final result, which was won at Le Touessrok.
