Earlier this year, we were honoured to act as host resort for the crew from Sports Illustrated Swimsuit and had the distinct pleasure of welcoming the inspirational stars of the U.S. Women's National Soccer team ahead of the FIFA Women's World Cup this summer in France.
Marigot Bay Resort was home to the team for Saint Lucia's destination photo shoot in the 56th Sports Illustrated Swimsuit 2019, as they spent a week capturing stunning images of players Alex Morgan, Megan Rapinoe, Crystal Dunn and Abby Dahlkemper. As we now know, Captain Alex Morgan graces one of three covers for the ground-breaking issue that also featured its first burkini model, Halima Aden.
The spread features our resort on the destination opener and on the Saint Lucia travel page, spotlighting Marigot Bay Resort and Marina as the ideal locale for both relaxation and adventure while on-island. The feature highlights our unique indigenous spa treatments and Marigot marina, calling it "one of the Caribbean's most scenic yachting hubs."
With the largest magazine readership in the world, the Swimsuit Issue is published annually by the iconic American magazine company, Sports Illustrated. It’s launched some of the biggest names in the bikini business.
According to SI Swimsuit's digital edition:
