Grenada a Top Three Destination for Travel Recovery From the USA

Grenada has been cited as one of the top 3 performers in terms of percentage growth of arrivals, over 2019 figures from the USA.

This is according to information from the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA), in their ‘2022 Performance and 2023 Outlook’.  

CHTA is the leading association representing the hospitality industry in the Caribbean.  

President of CHTA Nicola Martin Greg shared that as of March 2, 2023, Grenada recorded a 39 per cent growth in visitor arrivals from the US market over 2019 figures with Curaçao and Antigua and Barbuda recording a 53 per cent and 26 per cent increase respectively.  

Grenada was commended for its outstanding efforts to maintain a safe, welcoming, and sustainable tourism industry in the face of global challenges.  

Minister for Economic Development, Planning, Tourism and ICT, Creative Economy, Agriculture and Lands, Fisheries and Cooperatives, Lennox Andrews, stated, “This growth is testament to the hard work of the team at the Grenada Tourism Authority, our industry partners and the Grenadian people all across our tri-island state of Grenada, Carriacou and Petite Martinique, who have worked tirelessly to provide an exceptional experience to those visiting the islands. We are dedicated to offering great value for money and ensuring that we consistently evolve and improve our product in a sustainable and responsible way. In 2023 we will welcome the first Six Senses branded hotel in the Caribbean, as well as Beach House, the sister property to the luxurious Silver Sands hotel.”

The annual survey by CHTA evaluates the performance and prospects of destinations in the region based on feedback from tourism stakeholders which include hotels, airlines, tour operators and a number of consumer surveys.  

The results provide valuable insight into the trends and issues affecting the Caribbean tourism industry and highlight best practices for enhancing competitiveness and sustainability.
