Congratulations to Saint Lucia! Saint Lucia has been named the 2018 World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination. The island was bestowed the honour at the World Travel Awards (WTA) Grand Final 2018 program in Lisbon, Portugal on Saturday, December 1, 2018. Chairman of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority, Mr. Nicholas John, received the award on the island’s behalf.
The destination was nominated among the top honeymoon hotspots around the world. This is the island’s 10th World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination Award, but its first title since 2010.
No other destination has won the coveted title as many times – Saint Lucia’s closest rival is Mauritius, which has won four times.
Acting CEO of the SLTA, Mrs. Tiffany Howard, says, “This award puts Saint Lucia in a class of its own in the area of honeymoons and romance. To be named amongst the most amazing destinations in the world is a huge honour, but topping them all to win this title is a very gratifying achievement.”
To commemorate the award, the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority (SLTA) unveiled a massive billboard outside the Hewanorra International Airport on Sunday, December 2, 2018 announcing its most recent title and highlighting some aspects of the island that won its acclaim as the leading honeymoon destination.
