The tourism sector is one of the key economic sectors of the Maldives, Mauritius, Seychelles, Sri Lanka and Zanzibar. Long favoured by holidaymakers from across the world for their crystal-clear waters and palm-tree fringed beaches, these Indian Ocean islands took a severe hit during the pandemic with borders closed in most of the countries.


The latest Hospitality Research report from JLL, Hotel Destinations Indian Ocean, offers an insight into how these key hospitality markets fared since the onset of the pandemic and what hotel investors and owners expect in 2022.

Pent-up leisure demand will provide a tail wind to destinations, yet border policy, air lift and destination marketing will be key.
