Press Release

John and Tricialouise MillardBasseterre, St. Kitts (Adams Unlimited): St. Kitts is being praised as an ideal place to honeymoon by the couple who married in a public ceremony at the Caribbean Fair at Grand Central Station on Wednesday, June 6, 2012, as part of the Caribbean Tourism Organization’s annual Caribbean Week in New York, June 4 to 9.  Having recently returned from their honeymoon on St. Kitts, their comments reinforce the island’s emerging reputation as a premiere destination for wedding, honeymoon and romance travel.

Groom John Millard said, “After just a short visit, the people, the culture, the music and the beauty of St. Kitts have become a part of me that I’ll always treasure and which longs to return."

Tricialouise Gurley, now Mrs. John Millard, added, “Winning our beautiful cake and our breathtaking honeymoon from St. Kitts is a gift that we will always cherish.  We were able to end our prefect wedding with a taste of St. Kitts and begin our ever after walking on the warm sand of St. Kitts as the sun set. We fell in love with the island and again with each other."

Highlighting the destination to the key wedding and honeymoon niche market in the metropolitan New York region, St. Kitts donated a honeymoon and wedding cake to the couple, Mr. John Gordon Andre Millard and Ms. Tricialouise Gurley, in celebration of their nuptials as part of Caribbean Week in New York activities for 2012.  As a result of the island’s partnering with American Airlines, the couple received two business class tickets to St. Kitts in addition to a four-night stay at the St. Kitts Marriott, provided courtesy of the resort. The St. Kitts Marriott also provided complimentary spa treatments at the Emerald Mist Spa to the couple.  St. Kitts’ own Brinley Gold Rum provided rum and MarryCaribbean.com organized the wedding. 

Most recently, the destination ranked #3 on a list of the 10 Best Islands in the World by US News & World Report following its ranking as #1 on the publication’s list of the 16 Best Caribbean Vacations in summer 2011.  On February 9, 2012, St. Kitts was named one of “5 Caribbean Islands to Discover Now” by MSNBC.  It was also named one of the “Top 12 Spots that should be on your list for 2012” by Caribbean Travel + Life magazine and the island’s Brimstone Hill Fortress was named one of “10 Great Places To Explore The World's Best-Kept Secrets” by USA Today.   Last year, St. Kitts was named a top destination for 2011 by both AOL Travel and British Airways.   

Located in the northern Leeward Islands of the Caribbean, it offers a diverse tourism product developed from the destination’s natural beauty, cultural heritage and rich history.  The island’s stunning variety of tourism attractions include hiking through the tropical rainforest, riding the scenic railway that connects the island’s former sugar plantations, visiting the Caribelle Batik factory, touring Brimstone Hill Fortress National Park, the only man-made UNESCO World Heritage Site in the Eastern Caribbean, and more traditional vacation pastimes such as watersports, golf, shopping, tennis, gourmet dining, gaming at St. Kitts’ exclusive casino or simply relaxing on one of the island’s sandy beaches.  Accommodations range from intimate plantation inns to larger hotels and resorts.
