(CMR) The Cayman Islands was named Luxury Destination of the Year at the 10th Caribbean Journal's Caribbean Travel Awards 2024 last week.
This award comes weeks after Cayman was recognized as the most sought after destination in the United States.
“Luxury isn’t the same everywhere. And luxury also isn’t what it used to be. The definition is changing, and that’s precisely how the Cayman Islands has managed to cultivate such a sought-after collection of travelers, all drawn to a destination that delivers the height of luxury without the attitude. That means top hotel brands, world-class eateries, unmatched shopping, but where a blazer is never required. It’s the forefront of the new Caribbean luxury,” the Caribbean Journal stated.
The Caribbean Journal said the Caribbean remains the most sought-after warm-weather destination in the world; in large part as the result of changing travel patterns resulting from the pandemic, the Caribbean is also now a true year-round destination, drawing millions to its shores, all who realize what a dynamic, vibrant and endlessly exciting part of the world this is.
The Caribbean Journal’s Caribbean Travel Awards celebrates the people and places contributing to the Caribbean’s astonishing success, from the region’s best hotels to its top tourism executives to the islands setting themselves apart in fields like food, romance, sustainability and innovation, as selected by Caribbean Journal’s editorial team, the world’s leading experts on Caribbean travel and tourism.
“The Caribbean Travel Awards is the premier celebration of excellence in Caribbean travel and tourism, and this year’s slate of winners is as vibrant as ever,” said Alexander Britell, editor and publisher of Caribbean Journal.
“Congratulations to all those who work so tirelessly to solidify the Caribbean’s place as the world’s ultimate travel destination,” Britell added.
Among the awardees were Nassau Paradise Island which was named the Caribbean Destination of the Year, and Harbour Village Beach Club, Bonaire, the Caribbean Hotel of the Year.
