The Caribbean Tourism Development Company (CTDC), the Caribbean region's tourism marketing and business development unit, is re-launching the website www.CaribbeanTravel.com and only hotels that are members of the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) will be featured on the newly designed website.
CHTA-member hotels will be displayed with a fully comprehensive listing on the website that includes descriptive copy about the property, resort photos, links to videos and more.
Hotels that have not joined CHTA or renewed their membership still have time to do so and be included on the redesigned website. Membership dues are based on a hotel's room count. For example, a hotel with 45 rooms would pay a $250 annual membership fee, which includes the website listing and a host of other benefits offered to CHTA members. The membership fee is capped at $2,500 for a property with 1,000 or more rooms ($2.50 per room, per year).
The website will be viewable across all media platforms including tablets and mobile devices and will contain unique rich content about the region featuring 36 Caribbean countries in total, including over 600 CHTA hotel members, and editorial provided by select travel publishing partners.
The rebuild of the website has been funded by CHTA, CTO, the U.S. Virgin Islands and The Bahamas.
