Sun International recently organized a ‘Trade Appreciation Evening’ in Mumbai in association with the South African Consulate General, Mumbai and airline partner, Air Seychelles. The ‘evening was hosted by Andrea Kuhn, Consul General of Republic of South Africa; Sherene Allaman, VP - Sales & Marketing, Sun International; Vasudha Sondhi, Managing Director, Outbound Marketing (India Rep of Sun International Hotels) and Rakesh Bhandari, Account Director, Sun International to appreciate the contributions of trade and media.

The objective of the event was to meet and greet the Indian tour operators, MICE agents, wedding planners, and media and appreciate the constant support for generating the consistent business to Sun International from the India market.

Speaking on the occasion, Kuhn said: “The SA team in India is working hard to re-introduce direct flights between India and SA, especially considering that we will be celebrating 30 years of our bilateral relations in 2023. I also wish to extend my congratulations and appreciation to Sun International for a memorable evening and for bringing South Africa to Mumbai tonight.”

The event started with a brief on the destination, South Africa, and Sun International with its diverse portfolio of assets. Marking the end, a lucky draw was conducted where the winners won stay vouchers and the mega prize included free air tickets for a couple by Air Seychelles and a stay voucher for a couple at the Palace of the Lost City.

Allaman mentioned, “We are thankful to our clients in India who have been relentlessly promoting South Africa and motivating tourists to stay at Sun International Hotels. We have seen an extremely positive trend in the last 2 months where the business is flowing in from all possible travel segments including Leisure, Corporate, MICE, and Social Events. There cannot be a better time than this to celebrate our bond with our Travel Partners in India and that is why I decided to be here and appreciate their support and thank them personally through our Appreciation Dinner.”

Allaman   informed that Sun International has upgraded its hotels, services, and activities. “We are ready to welcome our guests with impeccable hygiene and the highest service standards. We are proud to mention that we have taken up the mammoth task of upgrading all rooms in our flagship hotel The Palace of the Lost City, including a brand new spa and gym. The Table Bay celebrates 25 years as we continue to deliver the most memorable experiences at the Best Address in Cape Town and are delighted to announce the inclusion of SIBA The Restaurant together with a renowned local celebrity chef infusing African and European dishes.”

Sondhi added: “Travellers are looking at experiences and South Africa has that rare combination of offering experiences at every level backed by great infrastructure and product. We are encouraged with the bouncing back of the business to Sun International Hotels and South Africa”.
