Hotel Updates: Denis Private Island

Sunsets, Sushi and Sparkles

The global demand for sushi and sashimi-grade fish has created a billion-dollar industry around ways to quickly shuttle precious raw fish all around the world.

Luckily for the guests on Denis Island, and the chefs who cook for them, it all comes much easier. With Denis situated right on an ocean precipice that makes it one of the richest and most diverse fishing grounds in the world, freshly caught fish in the form of world-class sushi is becoming more and more of a fixture on the island.

Mason's Travel News: Corporate Social Responsibility

Perseverance pays off for Bertrand Vidot 

Bertrand Vidot always dreamed about playing football, but to do that he’d first need to be able to walk under his own power.

Thanks to the dedication of his mother, a local fundraiser, and several partners who have been able to help him with his condition, he’s now getting closer to that dream.

Bertrand, who was born with a club foot and up until recently required crutches to move under his own power, walked unassisted into the Mason’s Travel offices yesterday to visit the staff.

Now 13 years old, Bertrand has undergone two surgeries in Chennai, India.
