St Lucia Gets Best Island in the Caribbean award 2013

St Lucia, home to the iconic twin-peaks The Pitons, a UNESCO-designated World Heritage Site, has won another international accolade.

The 238-square-mile island, billed “Simply Beautiful”, has been adjudged winner of “Best Island in the Caribbean” by the US-based Global Traveler, a monthly magazine that focuses on business travellers and includes business and lifestyle travel interests.

Global Traveler, which has a circulation of over 105,000 readers, launched the awards last year to recognize the best in leisure travel destinations, cruises, tour operators and resorts.

In response to the latest award, St Lucia’s 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.

“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.
