Grenada: Caribbean Destination of the Year
July 23rd 2018
Grenada, the island nation that also includes the Carriacou and Petite Martinique islands, is celebrating after capturing two prestigious titles in the Caribbean Journal’s Travel Awards 2017.
Grenada was named “Destination of the Year 2017” and Chief Executive Officer of the Grenada Tourism Authority (GTA) Patricia Maher was named "Caribbean Tourism Director of the Year 2017".
“I wish to thank the GTA team who have been working hard to ensure that the world discovers and enjoys our islands. We appreciate all our public and private stakeholders who work along with us to create memorable experiences, and the Grenadian people for their warm hospitality," said Maher.
Thanks to one of the fastest growth rates in the Caribbean and a surge in hotel development, Grenada was an obvious choice. With the Kimpton Kawana Bay properties in the pipeline and a new branding push, Grenada offers travellers a place that has long been one of the Caribbean’s most underrated destinations.
Grenada was also recently featured in several major publications. Travel and Leisure Magazine recognized the destination as No. 3 out of the 50 best places to travel in 2018. Grenada was also featured in mic.com as one of the 26 best places to travel in 2018.
