The Caribbean Travel Awards 2021
Miami, FL – The Caribbean Journal, the leading multi-media platform for coverage of the travel and hospitality sector in the Caribbean, announced today the winners of its 7th annual Caribbean Travel Awards. Twenty awards were announced, with WIMCO Villas taking home the prize for top Caribbean villa rental company.
Caribbean Journal Company of the Year Award
The Caribbean Journal is the world’s largest website covering the Caribbean, with original content and video focusing on travel and tourism across the entire Caribbean Basin — from new flights to luxury resorts to secret vacation escapes.
Alexander Britell, Editor-in-Chief of the Caribbean Journal and founder of the Caribbean Travel Awards describes the origin of the awards. “We first launched the Caribbean Travel Awards in 2014 to create a regional awards platform. Now in its seventh year, the Caribbean Travel Awards are the leading celebration of the best of Caribbean travel, honoring the people, places, and companies at the forefront of the industry”.
Britell acknowledged that the restrictions on travel in this extraordinary year reinforced its value to us. “Travel makes our lives interesting, it sustains us; it expands our horizons; it builds community; it deepens our souls. And for a good portion of this year, all that was taken away. For the Caribbean, the travel industry isn’t just something to dream about — it’s the backbone of the entire economy — it is essential; it is indispensable.
The process for determining who these nominees and winners were remained unchanged, despite the challenges of traveling in the coronavirus era, said Britel. “Each year we gather a team of experts in Caribbean travel and hospitality to review destinations, hotels, restaurants, airlines, and villa companies that the team has visited and reviewed over the course of the year.”
“This year our Caribbean travel experts voted to select WIMCO Villas as the Caribbean’s top villa rental and concierge services company. This award acknowledges the company’s broad reach in the Caribbean, it’s position at the top of the luxury villa rental market, and it’s focus on the kind of personalized service and curated experience that make the ultimate villa vacation.”
