  1. Pip said: “…it is a haven of love, tranquility, and natural splendor”, but forgot to complete it accurately by adding, “where shootings, stabbings, and beheadings are fast becoming weekly occurrences..”

  2. Chastanet is the only one who believed that tourism would not die. When PJP was referring to Chastanet as foolish for believing in tourism, Chastanet knew better.

  3. WOW!
    Congratulations to all St.lucians!
    Whatever we are doing good lets continue.
    Congratulations 🎊 again!!!

  4. @Nigel St. Omer. Are you freaking crazy? Is your head is so far up in his rear that you would make such foolish statement

  5. @paul foo. educate yourself. 15th does mean saint lucia placed 15th like it took part in a 100 metre race, Saint Lucia won the title of leading Honeymoon Destination 15, Fifteeeeeennn Times for 15 years. do some research

  6. @Paul foo. No, it doesn’t mean what you think. It is actually the 15th time that St. Lucia has been awarded this.

  7. Paul Foo I think you are really losing it. How does winning an award the fifteenth time reflect our ratings going down. Stop just spewing out shit because you are a hater. When it is excellent applaud it and give constructive criticism when it is not.
    Likewise I have to call out Crow for suffering with Scarlet Fever. Nigel St Omer is on queue, spot on, correct. Mr Pierre and Helaire criticized Chastenet relentlessly saying that he was the only fool who thinks that tourism would bounce back. So Crow stop having selective amnesia. Let me take you back to December 2021, when tourism figures were on the rise and Mr Pierre made the statement that he never realized the importance of the tourism industry to St Lucia and the impact it had on our economy.
    I wrote a comment under that news caption on SLT, that this should never come out of the mouth of a former tourism minister.

  8. Thank god for the three sandals properties, conducting three to five weddings a day . When it’s good say it good πŸ™Œ

  9. Does PJP only have a problem with “white” St.lucians? What happened to the slave vs slave master narrative they’ve been pushing? He looks thrilled accepting the white man’s award.

  10. Congratulations slu..time will tell you are correct these people in opposition the act like wild animals..they were wishing bad for the country now under their watch the country is SINKING playing dirty politics confusing the idiots not me
