Bahamas launches "From Bahamas with Love" romance promotion

The Bahamas Ministry of Tourism has launched a new promotion aimed at attracting more loved up couples to the islands.

The "From Bahamas with Love" will focus on a romance theme for every month, such as engagements, bachelorette parties, destination weddings, and honeymoons.

The campaign comes after it was announced that 2016 would be "A Year of Love" in the Caribbean, by the Caribbean Hotel Tourism Association.

"Because it is the year of romance, what we are doing is theming each month in terms of the romance months that we are going after. The month of February will be engagements."

Said Ellison "Tommy" Thompson, the Deputy Director General of Tourism, at a recent press conference in Nassau. Mr Thompson continued:

"When we move into March and April it will be the bachelorette parties. May will be the destination weddings and in June it's honeymoons."

The theme will continues throughout the year with In July focused on vow renewals; baby moons in August; milestone anniversaries in September; romantic escapes in October; engagements; and honeymoon registries in December.

Mr Thompson also explained:

"What we are doing is asking our partners from the Bridal Association, the Nassau/Paradise Island Promotion Board, Grand Bahama Promotion Board and Family Island Promotion Board to give something to feature. That way we will rotate something in all of the Family Islands to ensure that we get the coverage in all of the Family Islands."

In 2014, Romance Tourism attracted 76,000 visitors to the Bahamas, and Thompson is hoping to increase those numbers to 100,000 over the next two years, which would lead to $150 million in revenue.

The Bahamas is an island nation archipelago situated in the Atlantic Ocean, north of Cuba. The Caribbean country boasts a collection of idyllic islands with pink sand beaches, such as Bimini, Berry Islands, New Providence, Crooked Island Mayaguana, Acklins, The Berry Islands, Nassau, The Exumas, Grand Bahama Island, and Harbour Island.

Couples can enjoy beach weddings on pristine stretches of white sand, romantic ceremonies in fragrant tropical gardens, or vows on a luxury boat against the backdrop of the sparkling azure ocean.
