Antigua Promotes Luxury Resorts at Expo

Renee DeSuza, tourism officer for the Antigua and Barbuda Department of Tourism

Sure, everyone knows that Antigua has some of the best, affordable family resorts in the Caribbean but the industry needs to learn more about the island's elite luxury resorts and it chose Luxury Travel Expo to get that message out.

“There is a lot that agents know about Antigua, but there is also a lot they don’t’ know,” said Renee DeSuza, tourism officer for the Antigua and Babruda Department of Tourism. “A lot of people don’t focus enough on the luxury products we have and that’s why we are here at this show.”

Hermitage Bay and Jumby Bay are just two of the luxury resorts the destination is promoting at this year’s show. “We have a lot of great properties for the luxury market and we aren’t just an all-inclusive destination,” DeSuza said. “I think we are really getting more and more popular in the industry, but we still need to teach agents more about us and this is the perfect place to do that.”
