With easy flight connections out of Johannesburg, and dozens of resorts across all price brackets, this easy-going tropical island has long been a popular choice for conferences and incentives. While most resorts offer their own in-house conference facilities, there are a handful of larger convention centers situated across the island. The Swami Vivekananda Conference Centre in Pailles is the largest on the island and can host up to 3,500 delegates at one time.
There is a bewildering array of activities available to keep meeting attendees entertained from dawn to dusk. Tourism infrastructure is well established, and efficient tour operators are used to working with large groups.
The island can lack‘wow’factor, with many likely to have already visited the island on another incentive, or on vacation. Resorts can be busy, and expensive, in peak season.
