Nominated alongside 49 other destinations, Reunion Island won the 2015 trophy in the category “Tourist Offices.” After two Golden Travel awards were already scooped up in 2012 and 2014, Reunion Island has now won this coveted trophy for the third time.

Reunion Island was awarded their Gold Travel trophy during the gala evening held at the Pavillon Gabriel, situated in the 8th arrondissement of Paris, a few steps from the Place de la Concorde.

Nominated as favorite travel website of Internet users in its class, the new public web site of competed alongside over 300 other websites in all categories. Launched on January 9 as a state-of-the-art pro-active website for Reunion Island, the site highlights the major tourism attractions of the island. The ease of use and incorporating the latest website technology made the difference when Reunion’s website was selected as the winner.

This is a great reward for Reunion Island, which intends to develop its tourism economy with a strong innovative spirit. The new technologies of information and communication (ICT) are at the heart of the target policy, particularly through the development of several interactive and fun features.

Reunion Island won the 2012 Golden Travel Innovation in the “applications and tablets” category for their 3600 implementation and the 2014 Golden Travel as the most preferred Internet travel website in the “tourist offices” category. These previous victories have given it its status as “the geekiest destination” by Frédéric Vanhoutte, President of Eventiz and creator of the Golden Travel Award scheme.

About Reunion Island

An island of true contrasts, the French department of Reunion is unknown to many of the world’s travelers. That’s unfortunate! This unique island in the middle of the Indian Ocean is simply one of the most intriguing spots on earth.

Not as well-known as nearby Mauritius or the not-so-far-away British Seychelles, little Reunion seems but a speck in the vast ocean, dwarfed by Madagascar, located 500 miles to the west.

The French know the island well but only the very well-traveled have ever stepped foot on Reunion’s varied and enticing terrain.

With an active volcano on its south coast, 17 miles of warm, welcoming beaches in the west, and lots of mountains and forests in between, Reunion Island offers vacation opportunities ranging from relaxing to truly insane.

If you’re looking for a place to “chill out”, you’ll find it here. But if you’re the kind of vacationer who prefers an adrenaline rush over a sunburn, the possibilities are endless. From hiking Reunion’s unique “cirques” or canyoning the island’s many waterfalls to scuba diving or surfing in the clear waters that surround this tiny 30-mile-wide island, adventure activities abound for vacationers hoping to do something a little daring while on their Reunion holiday.
