VIEUX FORT, Saint Lucia – Saint Lucia’s Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa has been selected as a Good Housekeeping 2023 Family Travel Award Winner in the category Baby-Friendly Vacation. The resort caters to families in its Splash Wing and the CocoLand Kidz Klub is celebrated for welcoming infants to 12-year-olds.
Judges made up of Good Housekeeping Institute analysts and travel experts evaluated hundreds of products and travel experiences that make vacations easier and more enjoyable considering attributes most important when it comes to family travel, such as convenience, value, service, quality, safety, innovation, inclusion and more. Analysts visited cities, resorts and local attractions to provide first-hand feedback on their experiences and the Good Housekeeping Institute Labs also surveyed their proprietary panel and reviewed responses from over 3,000 consumers that had taken recent trips.
“We are so proud to be recognized by the prestigious Good Housekeeping for our family programs and amenities,” says Mark Adams, President and CEO of Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa. “This award is only possible because of our wonderful staff including our dedicated CocoLand Kidz Klub team who makes magic happen each and every day for our young guests as well as our entertainment team bring families together to ensure they have fun and memorable experiences during their stay.”
Premium All-Inclusive Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa provides family-friendly amenities and activities from mealtimes to entertainment including Lil’ Menus for kids, weekly Family Tie Dye, and the Turtle SCOUTS turtle watching program.
