Vatel decided to open a school in Mauritius in 2009 for two reasons. First, because of the worldwide recognition of the Mauritian hospitality industry. Secondly, because of the government’s vision to develop Mauritius as a knowledge hub. After 6 years of operation, our strategy, well supported by EDB, has been successful.
