Ben KilbeyBarbados is something of an institution with wealthy British travellers who enjoy the trade winds and turquoise waters of the Caribbean. A strong hold for celebrity jet setters and a haven for those who like the finer things in life, Barbados has enjoyed unprecedented success over the last few years, with gongs from the World Travel Awards and other industry leading official’s. To sum it up, life is good, life is sweet. Caribbean Travel News spoke to the Marketing Manager of South Beach Resort, Gemma Lewis, to garner what’s happening on the island and why Barbados is such a success. Gemma, born in Wales yet now a true feature on the Caribbean island, explains that; “I can’t understand why anyone would want to life away from Barbados, I came here to study for my masters and I have not looked back since, I really don’t understand why anybody would want to life in a big smog filled city. Life here is great!” With such an enthusiasm for life it is easy to see how Gemma has succeeded as she has, yet it’s not only her enthusiasm but also keen eye for attention and a competitive edge that have rewarded the young lady so kindly.
