It is now six months since Fregate Island Private in the Seychelles joined the list of Masterpiece Hotels in the Oetker Collection and managed alongside the famous L`Apogee Courchevel of Courchevel in France, Brenners Park Hotel & Spa of Baden in Germany, Le Bristol Paris of Paris in France, Chateau Saint-Martin & Spa of Vence Cote D`Azure in France, Hotel Du Cap-Eden-Roc of Cap D`Antibes in France, and Palais Namaskar of Marrakech in Morocco.
This last Saturday it was the opportunity for Mr. Didier Le Calvez, the Senior Vice President Operations and Sales & Marketing for Oetker Collection, to present to Minister Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, the operational vision of the new company appointed to manage Fregate Island Private.
The island has also now introduced a weekly Creole Night where a band from Mahe is invited to perform for the guests bringing added culture to the Fregate Island experience.
At a meeting on Fregate Island itself, Mr. Didier Le Calvez gave a rundown on the upgrading works underway for which a budget of 4.5 million euro has been budgeted. Redecoration of the island`s spa and the tennis courts have already now been completed. The Villas are also being touched up as well as the main restaurant and marina.
Oetker Collection of Hotels is a family-owned business in Germany, and they have a list of some 300,000 addresses of 5-star clients who have previously stayed in their own hotels. “They have now successfully moved clients to Fregate Island Private, and as they continue cross-selling their properties through Appeal, their own Oetker Collection Magazine, and other sales approaches.
“I was happy to have heard from Mr. Didier Le Calvez their plans and marketing approaches for Fregate Island Private. I have seen the work in progress and appreciate that the owning company is reinvesting in their property. Fregate Island Private is one of our great properties, and we welcome the approach by Oetker Collection to upgrade the property,” Minister St.Ange said.
The Minister also welcomed the commitment by Oetker Collection to work with the Tourism Board and to support the Board`s efforts in the promotion of Seychelles.
