Saint Lucia wins 'Best Island in the Caribbean' award
Published on June 5, 2013 Email To Friend    Print Version

CASTRIES, Saint Lucia -- Living up to its tagline as “Simply Beautiful,” the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia has again risen to the top and has distinguished itself amid stiff competition as it continues to receive awards and recognition from key travel influencers.

The 238 square-mile island, nestled in the heart of the Caribbean and home to the iconic twin-peaks -- The Pitons, a UNESCO designated World Heritage Site -- has copped yet another prestigious international accolade.

Tourism officials are basking in the news that the island has been adjudged winner of ‘Best Island in the Caribbean.’ The latest recognition comes from the US-based Global Traveler; a monthly magazine that focuses on business travelers including both business and lifestyle travel interests.

Boasting a circulation of over 105,000 readers, Global Traveler is available across the United States. The magazine’s awards were launched last year to recognize the best in leisure travel destinations, cruises, tour operators and resorts.

Responding to news of the latest award, director of tourism Louis Lewis said, “This is a testament that Saint Lucia is indeed a world class tourism destination and that the one-of-a-kind vacation experiences we deliver through our unique hotels and resorts, restaurants, sites and attractions and other soft adventure excursion partners, truly excites and lifts the senses of the thousands of visitors annually who grace our shores.”

According to Lewis, “We are not in the business to try to win awards but whenever we do, we are happy for the recognition as it speaks volumes to the hard work, commitment and dedication on the part of thousands of our industry workers to ensure that our visitors enjoy their stay with us. We are thankful to the readers of Global Traveler for taking the time to recognize our Simply Beautiful island.”
