Coco Palm and St Lucia Holidays Showcased at Dublin Holiday Show

One of the most luxurious St Lucia hotels, Coco Palm, participated in the Dublin Holiday Show in January 2011, focusing its efforts on encouraging Irish travellers to keep booking their Caribbean holidays to the tropical island.

Coco Palm and St Lucia Holidays Showcased at Dublin Holiday Show

This year’s Dublin Holiday Show took place between 28th and 30th of January and was attended by St Lucia hotels and the St Lucia Tourism Board in a bid to entice Irish travellers to book holidays to the Caribbean island.

Coco Palm and its fellow hotel partners from Almond and Smugglers participated in the event which this year focused on value for money and bargain holidays.

It seems that travellers prefer planning their own DIY holidays these days as statistics show that the number of package holidays being sold in Ireland has dropped from one million in 2006, to just 400,000 in 2010.

Coco Palm focused on promoting their property towards these types of travellers who prefer to plan their holidays in St Lucia independently.

Managing Director of Coco Palm, Feolla Chastanet, attended the Dublin Holiday Show and said: “Despite the dire economy in Ireland, Coco Palm has enjoyed a number of Irish guests over the years thanks to both tour operators and the dramatic change in the way consumers book holidays being more independent which suits our motto of catering to the savvy traveller.”

Also present at this year’s show was Ryanair’s Managing Director, Michael O’Leary, who stated: “Don’t waste your time with tour operators and travel agents. Book your flights with us and your accommodation independently and you will save money.”

The annual Dublin Holiday Show was held at RDS and was attended by over 2000 travel representatives from over 70 countries across the world.

Celcie Lewis represented the St Lucia Tourist Board this year along with representatives from St Lucia resorts including Fiona Boss from Almond Resorts, Peter Grace from Smugglers Resorts and Feolla Chastanet from Coco Palm.

Coco Palm is situated in the heart of Rodney Bay Village just steps away from the award-winning white sand palm-fringed Reduit Beach. The luxury four star boutique hotel features a selection of accommodation for tourists enjoying St Lucia holidays including swim-up rooms, family suites and garden view rooms, all with modern amenities, luxury furnishings and a personal Concierge.
