Saint Lucia has again been named “World’s Best Honeymoon Destination” by the World Travel Awards for the third year in a row and for the twelfth time overall.
In addition to winning the world’s number one honeymoon destination, Saint Lucia was also nominated in three other categories: world’s number one island destination, world’s number one wedding destination and world’s most romantic destination 2020.
Saint Lucia held its first underwater wedding in September 2019 when Next Door travel agent Julie Gilchrist married Sean Gillen. TravelPulse Canada was there exclusively to attend what was truly a remarkable event.
Commenting on the award, the Minister for Tourism, the Honorable Dominic Fedee, said; “Saint Lucia’s world-renowned status is what we strive for daily in our strategic marketing and promotional efforts. The destination undoubtedly boasts genuine passion in all key niches and among its hidden gems. It is indeed an honor for Saint Lucia to once again be named the best honeymoon destination in the world, a sincere reflection of our culture and the people who power the industry.
The World Travel Awards are voted on by travel and tourism professionals worldwide and are recognized as the travel industry’s most prestigious awards program, recognizing leaders in the tourism, airline, hotel and hotel industry.
