Cer­tifi­cates of Ex­cel­lence for Lu­cian tourism

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - NEWSBITES ISLANDDIRECTORY -

It’s that time of year when the best op­er­a­tors in the tourism in­dus­try wait with baited breath for their Tripad­vi­sor Cer­tifi­cate of Ex­cel­lence to land in their in­box, and ev­ery year more and more Saint Lu­cian busi­nesses are hit­ting the mark with vis­i­tors to the is­land.

Ho­tels, restau­rants and tours are all hon­oured with the award and must sus­tain a min­i­mum 4 star rat­ing to reach the top. Among Trop­i­cal Trav­eller’s favourite win­ners this year are Or­lando’s Restau­rant and Bar; Chef Or­lando set up his hid­den jewel of a restau­rant in Soufriere in 2013 after many years lead­ing kitchens in the is­land’s top ho­tels, and his motto of “shar­ing the love” has cer­tainly hit home for ev­ery guest who sought him out for the past year.

The top tour at­trac­tion on the is­land is – of course – the Pi­tons, and valiant hik­ers who have braved the is­lands twin peaks find the trek more than worth the as­tound­ing view over the south­ern half of St. Lu­cia. If wheeled ad­ven­ture is your thing, Lu­cianStyle’s Seg­way tour of Mount Pi­mard comes top of the list for Gros Islet.

On the sea, day char­ter company Jus’ Sail have again reached the ex­cel­lence mark with their charm­ing old Car­ri­a­cou Sloop “Good Ex­pec­ta­tion,” and their laid back sail­ing tours. Fully cus­tom­ized to please, vis­i­tors can sail, swim, snorkel and even en­joy a pre­mium rum- tast­ing from St Lu­cia Dis­tillers’ finest prod­ucts.
