About Us

It all started with a dream …
“Since times immemorial, human beings have been searching for the fountain of youth. They have yearned for everlasting beauty, power, wealth, wisdom… an eternal carefree summer.
SummerTimes was created to respond to this basic human ideal. Our objective is to contribute in fulfilling this cherished dream. We endeavour to provide our guests with carefree, relaxing, quality time on our paradise island. Our vision is to ensure that they have a memorable holiday experience with SummerTimes. ”
Philippe Hitié, CSK - Managing Director & Founder - SummerTimes

SummerTimes started its operations in August 2000 offering a complete range of inbound services as a Destination Management Company (DMC), specialising in the handling of meetings, incentives, conferences and events (MICE) & passenger cruise ships.

The company is today a leader in the Mauritian tourism sector, with a highly dedicated team of experienced and knowledgeable staff; some with over 25 years hands-on experience in the field. All our staff have a vast knowledge of this dream destination.

Our head office is ideally located in the centre of the island in Quatre-Bornes, allowing ease of operations.

In 2004, SummerTimes Voyages was set up in Port Louis Waterfront and quickly became an IATA approved travel agency. During the same year, we proudly secured the exclusive franchisee for SIXT Rent a Car in Mauritius. Since 2006, SummerTimes has further extended its activities, becoming the general sales agents for Corsairfly - France.

SummerTimes is duly licensed by the Ministry of Tourism & Leisure. The company is a founder member of both AIOM (Association of Inbound Operators Mauritius) and ITMA (Incentive Travel & Meetings Association), and is also member of BAR (Board of Airlines).

CORPORATE SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

SummerTimes is committed to making a valuable contribution to our country’s development and welfare, in line with our organisation’s beliefs and values.

We are involved in the protection and conservation of the environment, to help preserve the unique and precious wildlife that makes our island so beautiful and rich.

As part of our initiatives, we support the Mauritius Wildlife Foundation (MWF) in its Ile aux Aigrettes programme, by offering a donation for every participant joining our excursion to this island. The programme fights against the degradation of the Ile aux Aigrettes nature reserve, precious refuge for a wide variety of endangered species.

In addition, SummerTimes provides funds to the Friends of the Environment association for the restoration and conservation of the Martello Tower, a landmark national and cultural heritage site on the west coast of Mauritius, vestige of the British Empire’s occupation of the island.

We also support investment in social development and endeavour to help the neighbourhood of Quatre Bornes, where our firm is located. In this spirit, SummerTimes provides support to the orphanage 'Crèche Coeur Immaculée de Marie' and to the 'Abri de Nuit de St Jean' for the homeless - both in Quatre Bornes. SummerTimes vows to continue to sponsor similar initiatives.
