NEW YORK, NY – February 24, 2015 – Martinique’s status as one of the Caribbean’s top luxury destinations was validated recently by U.S. News & World Report, which ranked Club Med Buccaneer’s Creek, the island’s preeminent all-inclusive resort, on its “Best Hotels for 2015” list.
“This is a great honor for Club Med and our hospitality sector in general,” said Karine Roy-Camille, commissioner of the Martinique Tourism Authority. “Together, as a unified tourism body, the local government and private sector partners like Club Med have worked tirelessly in recent years to elevate our product to meet the needs of today’s modern traveler. This designation confirms that we’re moving in the right direction.”
Annual U.S. News & World Report “Best Hotels” rankings are determined by the prominence of industry accolades a hotel receives, along with its reputation among professional travel experts, guest reviews and hotel class ratings. The aggregate opinion of travel experts – expressed through awards, recommendations and ratings – is combined with consumer evaluations measured through TripAdvisor. Hotels identified as “Best” are considered the top 30% of all luxury hotels within their respective destinations.
Nestled along the calm, clear Caribbean Sea in southern Martinique, Club Med Buccaneer’s Creek has a long and distinguished history of hospitality excellence. The 293-room property, extending over 48 lush, tropical acres that once served as a coconut plantation, was the first Club Med village resort of its kind in the Western Hemisphere, dating back to 1969. A comprehensive $60-million reconstruction and remodeling program completed in 2005 elevated the property to luxury status, with an exclusive new on-site spa, expansive infinity pool, gourmet dining options, flat-screen TVs, plush bedding, and other choice amenities establishing Buccaneer’s Creek as the new upscale flagship resort in the Club Med portfolio.
