With Island-wide Diamonds International promotion

SAINT LUCIA (May 16, 2012) – The Saint Lucia Tourist Board welcomes travelers looking to rekindle their love this summer with getaways as the island continues to be recognized as one of the most romantic destinations worldwide. Most recently Saint Lucia was voted number four on the list of “The World’s Top 20 Honeymoon Destinations” by Brides magazines in 2012 and for the eighth time recognized as the “World’s Leading Honeymoon Destination” from The World Travel Awards in 2011.

To celebrate the island’s appeal to lovers, the Saint Lucia Tourist Board has partnered with Diamonds International to offer a signature discount available to travelers booking hotel stays on the island. Diamonds International is creating a special Saint Lucia anniversary collection from their Crown of Light collection and offering a 20 percent discount on diamonds, with an additional percentage off to match the number of years a couple is married, up to 50 years. Visitors who book a romance package at participating hotels and travel to the island starting on June 1st, 2012 will receive their special discount card upon check-in. (Special conditions apply from retail. Not valid on branded jewelry or watches and cannot be combined with any other offer.)

In addition to the Diamonds International promotion, a majority of properties are offering special packages providing amenities ranging from couples massages and private dinners, to champagne and sunset cruises. Saint Lucia offers visitors a variety of enchanting engagement, anniversary and romantic celebration getaways with its charming culture, inviting beaches, intimate properties and heart-pumping activities. From large resorts to intimate villas, visitors can be sure to find the perfect fit.

“As couples continue to flock to Saint Lucia, a destination that’s an ideal backdrop for any romantic celebration, we are excited to be working with Diamonds International to add a little extra sparkle to our visitors’ experience” said Nerdin St. Rose, Vice President Marketing & Sales for the Saint Lucia Tourist Board.
