Marie France MacGregor, the owner of the Treasure Cove Hotel & Restaurant at Bel Ombre, simply said, “I must be doing something right,” as she pulled the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for 2015.
This new home-grown hotel with its breathtaking restaurant overlooking the island of Silhouette is being run with a family touch where the owners are hands-on. Marie France MacGregor is personally on hand herself and has her partner and brother as the property’s Executive Chef and her sister-in-law overlooking the service in the restaurant.
“We salute the recognition Treasure Cove has pulled. We wanted to see more Seychellois get into the tourism industry of Seychelles when we launched the appeal for ‘Seychelles to claim back its tourism industry.’ Today when we see success stories like Marie France MacGregor and her Treasure Cove hotel and restaurant, we feel vindicated. Her property runs at a very high occupancy level and it is clear that owner-operator concepts works well for a tourism destination like Seychelles that prides itself on a personalized approach to tourism,” said Alain St.Ange, the Seychelles Minister responsible for Tourism and Culture, when informed by Marie France MacGregor that her property had been listed by Trip Advisor as for Excellence.
