Properties Offer Free-Nights, Special Deals and Savings

Saint Lucia (September 19, 2012) – As the days get shorter and cooler with the approach of fall, top hotels in Saint Lucia are offering Canadians value-added ways to hold onto summer longer, including free-nights, food and beverage credits and special discounts. With an array of upcoming events such as Saint Lucia’s “Elevate Yourself” 2nd Annual Health and Wellness Retreat from October 4th through 7th, 2012 and Oktoberfest, as a part of Saint Lucia’s “Creole Heritage Month” makes now the perfect time to getaway.

“Within the past year Canadians have been flocking to Saint Lucia in record numbers,” said Louis Lewis, Tourism Director. “We have seen a 10% increase in visitors from January to June, over the same period last year with strong numbers expected to continue for the fall and winter season. The arrival figures coincide with strong airlift via Air Canada and West Jet.”

Air Canada continues service from Toronto on Saturdays and Sundays through October 28 and will add flight service to the island to include Fridays from November 2 to December 13.  Beginning December 14 through April 2013, service extends to also include Mondays, with Montreal flights scheduled on Mondays from December 24 to April 2013. Additionally, West Jet offers flights from Toronto on Thursdays and Sundays year round.

Increased air and hotel promotions make discovering – or revisiting – Saint Lucia’s majestic Pitons, warm Caribbean breezes, pristine beaches and picturesque properties even more enticing. Current hotel offers include:
