Press Trip to Reunion Island – October 2017

Written by Cat

This month began well for CPRK Consulting!

The company was appointed to coordinate a press trip to Reunion Island with 4 Indian journalists.


With a direct flight from Chennai operated by Air Austral, the Island has a lot to offer to Indian travellers.

This journey aimed to introduce the emerging destination to a small private group of journalists.  During five days, they discover the many assets of the Island : active volcano, lagoon, primary forests, waterfalls, creole food and the warmful welcome of Reunion inhabitants.

Guided by Vincent, the journalists enjoyed the safe drive of Isabelle from Elite Tour who brought us around the Island. From the “samossa” or “bouchons” snacks to the beach-Creole picnic by the Far Far Kreol to the fine-dining experience at the Orangine (Lux*), they could savor the delicacies of the Island.

If the helicopter ride was a must along with spotting the whales from the beachfront, it is the generosity of Reunion Island’s inhabitants which truly moved them.
