    DSC04976 Min


    Maradiva Villas Resort & Spa, Mauritius kept their tradition for the second year of hosting friends of the brand on Tuesday 20th June 2017 at Royal Ascot Racecourse, where CEO Mr. Sanjiv Ramdanee and their Global PR/Brand Ambassador Mr. Thierry Macquet welcomed the happy few in their box in the Royal Enclosure, only 2 doors away from that of Her Majesty.

    Despite the heat wave, everyone came in their impeccable attire for the occasion and enjoyed champagne as well as lunch and canapés with some VIP guests having flown from Mauritius for the occasion.


    Celebrity designer Isabell Kristensen spoke about fashion trends at Royal Ascot (of course) to millinery Lady Laura Cathcart-Cash, while husband William Cash spent much time with his long-time friend BBC World presenter Tim Wilcox.

    Her Highness Princess Olga Romanoff (the Queen’s cousin) and Lady Colin Campbell (known as Lady C) arrived in grand style, while New York socialite Amanda Mosle-Friedman and her best friend Countess Josephine d’Otrante nearly missed the first race as their Limo had a flat tyre!

    Francis & Charlotte (The Lord & Lady Northbrook) were delighted to catch up again with neighbours Baron Federico von Sanden and his wife Countess Euphemie von Zech, looking much forward to their summer holidays together.

    Meanwhile, Wine guru Tom Harrow gave a full brief to all about which wines would be the most appropriate to serve during heat waves at Royal Ascot (and he did also include Mauritius in his most theatrical/amusing speech), which made Chelsea society playboy Guy Linzee-Gordon laugh as he rightly stressed that heat waves are seldom a problem on his family estate at Cluny Castle in Aberdeenshire!

    Were also present the Chairman of the Mauritius Tourism Promotion Authority, Mr. Raj Bujohory, Mr. Sanjaiye Rawoteea, Head of Private Wealth at the State Bank of Mauritius and Mr. Ian Nash, Regional Manager UK & Ireland for Air Mauritius.
