The Twin Republic destination recently won an award for the 'Best Destination for Nature Holidays' at The Caribbean Tourism Organization’s (CTO) silver anniversary ball on Thursday 25 June presented by UK’s best-selling author and TV personality, Simon Reeve at the Millennium Hotel, Mayfair.
The UK Chapter of The CTO teamed up with The Telegraph to launch the Caribbean Travel Award* where Telegraph readers voted for the awards via the Telegraph’s website. These awards follow on from the Telegraph “Best of the Caribbean” supplement which appeared on 18 April 2015.
The award highlights Trinidad and Tobago’s nature credentials that combine natural beauty and fascinating bio diversity. The dual island destination has a unique positioning within the Caribbean and plays to its natural strengths of eco soft adventure, birding, wildlife and heritage to attract visitors. There is so much more on offer than just a relaxing beach holiday, alluring lush green rainforests, rare bird species, colourful sea life and nature trails, is a setting not to be missed.
Warren Solomon, General Manager of Marketing at the Trinidad & Tobago Tourism Development Company said, “We are absolutely delighted with winning this award in conjunction with the CTO and the Telegraph Group. It is a great honour that the readers have recognized that Trinidad and Tobago offers bespoke holiday experiences for nature enthusiasts. We are so proud to see visitors are getting off the beaten track to explore the destination and we’re continuously improving the needs of future travellers, in particular with the launch of the new ecotourism trail development project to open up more nature trails for hiking, biking and birdwatching tours”.
The evening was attended by more than 270 guests, comprising visiting ministers and their delegations, as well as UK Chapter members. Other key guests in addition to Simon Reeve included host of the evening, Angie Greaves, radio presenter at Magic 105.4 FM.
