As a destination, Saint Lucia was honored to have captured the ‘Caribbean’s Leading Honeymoon Destination’ title for 2021. This win represents the island’s eighth consecutive title and twelfth overall, in that category.

Speaking at the event, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority – Thaddeus M. Antoine, pledged the continued commitment of his team noting; “as an Authority we are committed to fulfilling the mandate of creating strong demand for Saint Lucia in the global marketplace, and to stimulate sustainable development.

Adding his voice to the occasion, Tourism Minister-Hon. Dr. Ernest Hilaire congratulated the awardees and encouraged them to continue to strive for service excellence. “We know much hard work has been done in the past by yourselves and other administrators, but we cannot become complacent,, neither can we assume that we have already arrived because we’ve won a few awards. We need to challenge ourselves to be even better, every single time, and as we strive for that excellence, we want to call on all of you, our stakeholders, to join us as we chart the way forward where Saint Lucia can be even better recognized.”

These prestigious titles add value to the efforts of the Tourism Authority in keeping with the promise of integrating the brand’s concept into our local communities, welcoming visitors to enjoy Saint Lucia as if they are at home and more importantly adds value and a voice to the development of smaller providers.”

Saint Lucia, along with several service providers, are hoping to be named as winners in the World category of the 28th Annual World Travel Awards, which will be announced on December 16.
