A conference dedicated to luxury travel in the Caribbean is to take place in St Lucia.

The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association’s (CHTA) Caribbean Boutique and Intimate Hotel Conference will take place on the island from October 13-15.

The three day conference, which is designed with boutique hotels in mind, will be held at the Rodney Bay Marina which has recently been renovated.

It is a new version of what started as the Small Hotels Retreat and will feature a trade show element.
