St Lucia holidays, capturing hearts and winning awards
Over the past few years, St Lucia holidays has been the recipient of several accolades and awards, and this year has certainly been no exception. One of this Caribbean holiday destination’s noteworthy achievements is having been awarded the World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination for no less than 6 times in the last 7 years! The main St Lucia holidays authority - The Saint Lucia Tourist Board in charge of promoting the island world-wide, credits these accomplishments to the island’s successful year-round marketing initiatives.
Just last month, the prestigious US-based travel magazine Condé Nast Traveler, announced that Stt Lucia holidays had been ranked number 6 in the category of “Top Islands” in this year’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards poll conducted by such magazine, which has a readership of more than 820,000. St Lucia holidays were also one spot from last year in the “Caribbean and Atlantic Island” category, praising St Lucia holidays’ efforts in the island’s many new developments, services, activities and amenities which made a strong impact on visitors and reviewers.
“This award from such a reputable and respected agency reinforces the fact that Saint Lucia is highly regarded as a leading destination with a top class tourism product. The Saint Lucia Tourist Board prides itself on being able to set Saint Lucia apart from other Caribbean destinations by positioning the island as having more to offer than rest and relaxation. ” – were the words from Director of Tourism Louis Lewis who sees this as an important endorsement for the St Lucia holidays appeal.
This year, thousands of readers participated in Condé Nast Traveler’s online questionnaire and voted on the categories of: activities, atmosphere/ambience, beaches, friendliness, lodging, restaurants and scenery.
Furthermore, The Saint Lucia Tourist Board acknowledged 3 exceptional on-island resorts who made St Lucia holidays proud– the Ladera, the Anse Chastanet and the Body Holiday by Le Sport—which also received high rankings from the Readers’ Choice Awards.
Ladera was ranked number 5 out of the “Top 10 Caribbean Resorts” making this the second year in a row that the resort has held onto the 5th spot, priding itself on its award-winning cuisine, luxurious spa services and unique design that offers unobstructed views of the legendary Pitons. Anse Chastanet followed in the 6th spot and The Body Holiday by Le Sport ranked 17th in this Category.
Condé Nast Traveler ‘Readers’ Choice Awards’ poll has been carried out annually since 1998 and since then it has analysed the travel preferences of the magazine’s readership in various categories, including cities, islands, airlines, cruise lines, hotels, spas, resorts and car rental agencies. Complete results and to see all the categories in which St Lucia holidays competed, the whole list is published on the magazine’s November edition.
