VIEUX FORT, St. Lucia – Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa has been named one of the best large hotels by Caribbean Travel & Life, as part of the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards.
Coconut Bay was recognized as one of the top four Caribbean hotels with 150 to 299 rooms. Thousands of travel enthusiasts voted in this year’s survey.
“At Coconut Bay, we have strategically developed a concept that features two worlds in one. The resort’s layout physically provides separate areas for adults seeking a tranquil oasis and families looking for a tropical playground.
As a result of our design we are able to cater to families, couples and singles, which makes us a favorite destination among a variety of vacationers,” said Bridgette Charles, sales manager. “We take pride in being chosen as one of the Caribbean’s best large hotels. The management gives our sincere thanks to all of our guests who have acknowledged us with this honor and we commend our staff for providing the friendly service that makes Coconut Bay a top choice for travelers.”
With the action-packed CocoLand Kidz Klub providing educational and fun activities for guests ages three through fourteen, parents can relax knowing that their children are experiencing Coconut Bay’s tropical playground to the fullest, including the island’s largest water park as well as its beautiful natural environment.
While the kids are living it up, amenities like the adult-only pool area and the Kai Mer Spa provide a peaceful retreat for parents and couples. Coconut Bay also has top-notch restaurants for diverse tastes and seating schedules to accommodate both families and those looking for a romantic dining experience.
The island of St. Lucia was voted as one of the top four best adventure destinations and Coconut Bay’s Adventure St. Lucia service allows guests to get out and experience all of the island’s finest activities. Land based adventure excursions include zip-lining through the treetops on a canopy tour, riding ATVs, mountain biking in the rainforest and hiking the Piton Mountains. For those who want to take to the water it’s also possible to arrange for sailing, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, windsurfing and kite boarding.
“The strategy for the island as a whole has been to create an ideal tourist destination,” stated Mark Adams, management consultant to Coconut Bay. “We have spent a great deal of time making the necessary changes and upgrades to our resort, as have several of the other properties on the island. We are proud to see that our efforts have had an impact on the perception of our visitors.
St. Lucia has a great product to offer vacationers and this is clearly shown through the variety of recognition we received as a destination in this year’s Caribbean Travel & Life poll. Coconut Bay wishes to congratulate all of the other recipients and we are pleased to be listed among such a highly acclaimed group.”
