Windjammer Landing named as St Lucia’s Hotel

A luxury Caribbean resort was last week voted St Lucia's Leading Hotel at the World Travel Awards, dubbed the Oscars of the travel industry. Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort & Spa scooped the coveted award at the glittering red carpet awards ceremony in the West Indies after impressing a voting panel of more than 167,000 travel professionals. The 65-acre luxury resort is located in North West St Lucia near Castries and offers 247 suites and villas, all with spectacular views overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The resort is a big hit with celebrities, brides and grooms and families alike and offers a good selection of beach and hillside restaurants, a serenity spa and a nearby golf club. Next year the resort will be celebrating its 20th anniversary.

Anthony Bowen, vice president and managing director of the resort, said: "I'm thrilled that the Windjammer Landing has been recognised as the best in St Lucia. The award is testament to the hard work put in by all the staff here who go the extra mile to offer unrivalled service and a holiday with a difference.

"We aim to provide guests with the utmost in comfort and opulence - whether it's the view of the Caribbean Sea which can be seen from all villas or the host of recreational activities available here, organised by a team of personal ambassadors. Windjammer Landing is a hidden gem for the discerning customer that expects the very best and we're here to provide it".

The World Travel Awards is the most prestigious and comprehensive awards programme for the travel business. Now in its 15th year they are designed to acknowledge, reward and celebrate the achievements to be found in all sectors of the global travel industry.

Graham Cooke, chairman and founder of the World Travel Awards said: "Windjammer Landing Villa Beach Resort & Spa is a very deserving winner. The winning criteria examines every aspect of the resort from the accommodation and activities on offer to the level of service and cuisine and found them to be of the highest standard."

This is not the first award that Windjammer Landings Beach Resort Villa & Spa has received. Other accolades include being named one of the Top 20 Best Private Villa Resorts by The Sunday Telegraph and one of the Top Resorts in the World by Condenast Traveller.
