Saint Lucia ushers in the new year with a record of nearly 100 awards and new accolades as the new year begins. The most recent include: recognition as a Top 10 Caribbean Island by TripAdivsor, Travel Weekly’s 2013 Readers Choice for Best Caribbean Destination (December 2013), four properties listed on Travel + Leisure’s Top 500 Hotels (January 2014), and four resorts featured on Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List (January 2014).

“We are honored and very proud of the awards received in 2013 and the beginning of 2014. Each award is a testament of the hard work and commitment of the government, hotel and tourism partners and the employees of the Saint Lucia tourism industry,” said Louis Lewis, Director of Tourism for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
