Homes Go Fast

4 November 2011 - Homes Go Fast

Homes for sale in Jamaica are once again part of an award-winning tourism industry, after the country picked up several accolades at the World Travel Awards this month.

The World Travel Awards Caribbean & Americas were dominated by Jamaica last week as the country won multiple prestigious awards. The ceremony, which took place in Montego Bay, crowned Jamaica Caribbean’s Leading Destination for the sixth year in a row, while the country’s landscape was labelled Caribbean’s Leading beach Destination and Caribbean’s Leading Cruise Port.

Unsurprisingly, the Jamaican Tourist Board also won Leading Tourist Board, on an evening regarded to pay Jamaica back for all of its hard work in promoting the destination to overseas visitors.

Tourism Minister Bartlett told Incentive Travel: “As the leaders of the sector, we are humbled to be rewarded by the global tourism community for the energy and hard work which the team has done over the past year.”

The success is good news for the Jamaican economy, which relies upon tourism to power the country’s financial growth. Investors will be pleased to see recognition awarded to resorts and developments around the country, and homes for sale in Jamaica can expect a strong boost in interest from foreign buyers.

Bartlett added: “Jamaica remains a very attractive destination and the country’s performance and that of our resorts and partners at these awards have proven once again that our country will continue to see good results in terms of arrivals, guest satisfaction and indeed new developments.”
