Expedia records significant increase in hotel bookings in St Lucia

The online travel company Expedia has recorded a significant surge in hotel bookings on the tropical island of St Lucia.

During the first quarter of 2015, demand in travel to St Lucia has increased by more than 20 per cent, compared to the same time last year.

Demand for four and five star hotels and resorts has increased by 25 per cent, and package bookings have also increased by 25 per cent.

Package holidays usually combine flights and hotel and travellers often stay twice the amount of time than standard bookings.

"St. Lucia has always been an important Caribbean destination for the Expedia group, and to highlight that we now have a dedicated team member based locally in St. Lucia."

Commented Demetrius Canton, the Director of Lodging Partner Services for the Caribbean, at the Expedia Group. He also explained:

"Between our global reach, technology investments and our local market presence, we've enhanced our ability to effectively serve our partners and support the continued growth of this destination."

St Lucia is an island nation located in the Caribbean Sea, north-west of Barbados. It is home to some of the world's most magnificent natural landscapes, from white sand beaches, and turquoise ocean waters, to rolling green hills, soaring mountain peaks, and cascading waterfalls.

The island boasts unique sites including one of the world's only drive-in volcanoes and the soaring UNESCO designated emerald-sloped Pitons. The annual St Lucia Jazz Festival is a popular event that attracts international visitors and musical talent, and Pigeon Island National Park, which is home to the old British military base Fort Rodney, is one of the most visited sites on the island.

The 238-square-mile island certainly lives up to its tagline ‘Simply Beautiful' and as the recipient of multiple international awards, it is a hotpot for romantic destination weddings, honeymoons, and family holidays.
