JOURNALISTS, BLOGGERS, hoteliers and Caribbean elite met at the trendy Hoxton Hotel in celebration of St. Kitts and Nevis booming tourism industry.

The event, hosted by The St. Kitts Tourism Authority and Nevis Tourism Authority, was an exclusive networking opportunity for the islands to connect with influencers here in the UK, and provide the opportunity for the little known islands to expand their reach and let the world know they're open for business.

Hoteliers including Oualie Beach Resort, Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino and Yu Lounge were in attendance, as they discussed the beauty of the two islands and why it’s a must to visit in 2018.

Alicia Warner, the sales manager of St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino talked extensively about the beauty of St. Kitts and the many amenities that the luxury hotel provides. "The Marriott is one of the largest hotels in St. Kitts. We're large but we're quiet intimate."

"Our hotel has a little bit of everything. We have rooms which offer views from the ocean, garden to mountain views, we have a golf course - an 18-hole champion golf course and we're the only hotel to have that, as well as a spa, restaurants, swimming pool and beach bar and so much more."

Tracy Denman-Hughes represented the newly opened Mount Nevis Hotel,and detailed some of the exciting things the island has to offer. "Nevis is just a wonderful place. The first time I was there I just got off the plane and was feeling a little groggy, but then I got on a speedboat which took me to the island and I just felt light and instantly relaxed. Nevis really has that affect on you," says Denman-Hughes.

"A great feature about St. Kitts and Nevis is that you can swim to each island. It takes 40 minutes and is a phenomenal experience or you can take five-minute speedboat too. Also there's the opportunity to climb the mountains, relax on the beach - Nevis really offers an experience for everyone."

While the event celebrated the prosperity of St. Kitts and Nevis, there was an appreciation for the neighboring nations who lost their livelihood in Hurricane Urma and Hurricane Maria.

Greg B. Phillip, CEO of Nevis Tourism Authority said: "While we are here to tell the story of St. Kitts and Nevis and let the word know that we're open for business, we can't forget our neighbours right now."

"There is such thing is a Caribbean brand, and as much as we are hear to promote our individuals islands, we are the Caribbean. We fly the flag for the Caribbean and we are all one," said Phillip.

The Chief Executive Officer also spoke about the difference between the two islands. He said: "The beauty is that St. Kitts and Nevis are beautiful islands but they're oh so different. Nevis is great for relaxing and really is a reminder of how the Caribbean used to be. That's why we don't have fast food or large cruise ships - we are purposely unique."

"St. Kitts is great for enjoying the nightlife, and to explore the restaurants, parties and more. Both islands provide what you need for the ultimate holiday experience and we can't wait to welcome more people to experience both islands in all their glory."
