After an eventful Academy Awards, the 2022 edition of the prestigious World Travel Awards is now in full swing, and Antigua and Barbuda has a clean slate of nominations.

Nominations are in for the twin-island state as the Leading Beach Destination, Most Romantic Destination, and Honeymoon Destination. The V.C. Bird International Airport is contending for two major titles: Leading Airport and Lounge while Antigua & Barbuda Tourism Authority is vying for the Leading Tourist Board in the Caribbean category.

Curtain Bluff has been nominated across four categories and other top hotels and resorts include: Admiral's Inn, Blue Waters, Carlisle Bay, Cocos, Galley Bay, Pineapple Beach Club, The Inn at English Harbour, and St. James's Club & Villas. Tour nominees include: Stingray City, Creole Antigua Tours, and Tropical Adventures.

With 365 beaches and one to best suit your personality, it's no surprise that Antigua and Barbuda has been nominated in multiple categories year after year. To see all the nominees, of all the categories, in one place, please visit here and vote by May 3.
