Furaveri Maldives organised a FAM for travel agents from Western India in association with Youngistan Travellers
Furaveri Maldives, a premium resort property situated in the exotic Raa Atoll in the Maldives, recently hosted a group of travel agents from the western India region. The FAM was done in association with Youngistan Travellers – a leading destination management company (DMC) for the Maldives. A total of 9 agents from Surat, Ahmedabad & Mumbai were hosted for the special FAM.
The purpose of this familiarization trip was to create property awareness and achieve better arrival numbers by bringing travel agents from the Indian market. Furthermore, the trip was aimed to promote the resort, highlight its salient features to the agents and educate the travel agents about the destination, which will help them to make curated packages for the Indian audience.
The 3-night 4-day trip offered a great understanding of the property and helped agents to experience its amenities. The itinerary included a guided tour of the property, water sports, spa sessions, theme nights, and meals at sunset point amongst others. The agents had a great experience at the Furaveri Wellness village and were amazed at Indian culinary options prepared by Indian chefs for Indian travellers.
“We are seeing a steady increase in tourist arrivals from India which is mostly attributed to our Indian travel trade partners who understand the uniqueness of Furaveri Maldives and are promoting the same to leisure travellers. We are elated by the feedback we received from the agents. Maldives is a hassle-free destination with visa on arrival and direct flights from many Indian cities. We look forward to hosting more trade partners in the months to come and create a positive aspiration for Furaveri Maldives” says Ali Shiyad, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager, Furaveri Resort, Maldives.
