It’s always been one of the Caribbean’s most romantic places to visit, from the three-walled gems of Ladera and Jade Mountain to luxe resorts like Cap Maison and Sugar Beach, a Viceroy Resort.
And now Saint Lucia is looking to capitalize on its romance with the launch of a major new romance “summit.”
The island held its first-ever “Say Yes to Saint Lucia” summit this month, drawing travel advisors from the island’s top global markets, including the United States, the United Kingdom and the Caribbean.
Groups learned about the destination and explored dozens of sites ideal for marriage proposals, destination weddings and romantic getaways.
“What Saint Lucia offers is an experience that really cements the bonds that togetherness brings. So many locations in Saint Lucia recognize the special moments of romance, weddings and honeymoons,” said Saint Lucia Tourism Minister Dr Ernest Hilaire. “Choosing Saint Lucia is simply saying yes to an authentic, world-class destination with unmatched experiences.”
Host hotels included East Winds, Sandals Resorts, St. James Club Morgan Bay, StolenTime by Rendezvous and 25 Collection de Pépites.
“Saint Lucia has extraordinary natural gifts, accommodations, varied experiences, and the precise service excellence today’s romance travelers not only seek, but are willing to pay a premium for. The Global Romance Summit provided the ultimate showcase and immersive educational experience, which will undoubtedly pay future dividends within this essential market segment for Saint Lucia,” said Senior Sales Manager of the Saint Lucia Tourism Authority and Lead on the Global Romance Summit, Richard Moss.
