The Caribbean Travel Awards 2020

It’s been a stellar year for Caribbean travel. Stayover tourist arrivals are booming almost universally across the region. It seems like a new hotel opens up every week (and if you read Caribbean Journal, you realize it’s even more often than that). More and more new nonstop routes are launched every month from all over the world. And there’s a palpable excitement — both from the investors and risk-takers who continue to bet big on the Caribbean to the people who ensure every day that travelers have unforgettable experiences. 

“We’re proud to celebrate the best of Caribbean travel this year with the sixth edition of the Caribbean Travel Awards, honoring the hotels, destinations, experiences and, most importantly, people that make the Caribbean the greatest travel destination on earth,” said Alexander Britell, editor and publisher of Caribbean Journal. 

This year’s Caribbean Travel Awards includes winners across 21 categories, selected by Caribbean Journal’s editorial staff and its network of contributors. 

“It’s hard to believe it’s been six years since we first launched the Caribbean Travel Awards,” said Guy Britton, executive vice president and managing editor of Caribbean Journal. “Congratulations to all of the winners!”


Caribbean Destination of the Year: Antigua and Barbuda

It’s been a very strong year for Caribbean tourism, making this a particularly difficult selection. But Antigua and Barbuda’s combination of booming arrivals, surging hotel development (from a new Waldorf-Astoria on the way to a brand-new Rosewood resort in the pipeline) and a spirited, creative marketing strategy makes it the Caribbean Destination of the Year for 2020. Whether it’s the Caribbean’s leading portfolio of all-inclusive resorts, a diverse collection of  boutique hotels; a fascinating UNESCO World Heritage Site or the twin-island destination’s marvelous beaches, Antigua and Barbuda is right at the cutting edge of the region’s tourism sector – and it’s cooler than ever.
