St Lucia is leading Caribbean honeymoon destination again
The sun-drenched island of Saint Lucia will again have the envious opportunity of being able to use the internationally recognised 'Winner Shield' insignia of the World Travel Awards after capturing the coveted prize of Leading Caribbean Honeymoon Destination for 2014.
Saint Lucia was adjudged winner in a category that included long-time competitors, Barbados, Antigua and Jamaica, to name a few. In selecting Saint Lucia as the winner, officials of the World Travel Awards say the accolades exist to recognise, acknowledge and celebrate excellence in travel, tourism and hospitality, which was why Saint Lucia was chosen by fellow professionals across the globe for a World Travel Award.
"This hallmark of travel excellence will demonstrate to both consumers and fellow professionals that you are recognised by the industry as the very best in your region," the august body noted in a congratulatory note.
St Lucia tourism officials have expressed delight in winning the prestigious award for yet another year. "This is testament to not only our hard work across the entire industry but critically our robust efforts and innovative initiatives like the highly successful wedding symposium and the multiple hosting of the Bachelor series that have allowed us, as a destination, to not only keep our pulse on the weddings and honeymoon markets but to stay ahead of the game," said an elated tourism director, Louis Lewis.
Saint Lucia, he says, intends to use the World Travel Award Winner Shield on all its marketing, advertising and promotional communications.
