Industry Involvement and Awards

Saint Lucia

Saint Lucia offers intimate settings in a genuine, natural landscape of gorgeous palm-fringed beaches, within the rainforest, among embattled ruins or at the foot of the Majestic Piton Mountains.

Saint Lucia, the fairest Caribbean island, with all its rich culture and history is the most enchanting place ever created. While British customs and traditions prevail, there is a decidedly French influence that permeates this paradise island in local accent and rich, refined cuisine.
