Tatabye Tours, a recipient of the Top Producer Award (India market) at TTM 2023, organised the longest familiarisation (FAM) trip to the Maldives for their top producers from India, the Middle East, and Sri Lanka. A total of 15 people arrived in Maldives on August 25, 2023, and explored nine different properties in a span of 10 days.
With this FAM trip, Tatabye outshone its own record of the longest FAM trip from the Indian market with nine resorts and 15 people over the previous year’s eight resorts and 13 people.
Tatabye Tours is a nine-year-old company based in South India and one of the strongest wholesalers for Maldives in the region with 140-plus direct contracted resorts. Tatabye Tours/Tatabye Maldives has a major market share in Maldives from the Indian as well as the Middle East market.
Roshan Jain, Founder, Tatabye Tours, headed the group and extended a warm welcome to the guests arriving in the Maldives, which he considers his home. The team consisted of the best travel professionals from Dubai, Colombo, Maharashtra, Karnataka, New Delhi, and Tamil Nadu.
The group was hosted at nine different properties, including Hard Rock, SAii Lagoon, Sun Siyam Olhuveli, Kurumba, Velassaru, Centara Grand Island Resort, Villa Park, Siyam World, and Centara Ras Fushi, where they experienced the world-renowned Maldivian hospitality, unique experiences such as whale shark snorkelling, dolphin cruises, sunset cruises and different cuisines at their hosted properties.
Roshan Jain said, “The purpose of this trip was to create awareness in the market about how the Maldives has recovered as a destination after the pandemic and the unique products and experiences they have to offer for visitors. The travel agents will be able to market Maldives holidays with more precision and dedication after experiencing the products and service standards for themselves.”
