For the last two decades this specialist hotel sales and marketing company has been celebrating excellence at their collection of luxury boutique hotels in the Caribbean

Exclusively Caribbean, the brand is one of the longest standing trade representation companies in the region. Their aim has always been to provide an incredible range of UK sales support to their tour operator partners and specialist travel agents for the fabulous hotel collection that they represent.

The company was founded on 5th April 1999 by Annette Quinn and Helen Edwards, both of whom already had more than a decade’s intimate knowledge of the West Indies through their work in the industry. Over the subsequent 20 years they have built a portfolio of independent hotels with character. They have never ventured away from hotels within the Caribbean islands, so retain and continually improve their specialist knowledge of the region. Their whole team love sharing their passion for these boutique gems with their travel trade and potential guests.

Helen comments ‘We are proud that Essential Detail’s reputation has been built around personal service, synonymous with our privately owned resorts that are recommended for their uniqueness, their impeccable service, and delicious food. We encourage travel agents, tour operators and travellers to tap into the extensive, in-depth knowledge of the islands that our team has and we hope our endless enthusiasm is infectious!’

Whilst Annette has always encouraged island hopping through the beautiful islands and says ‘there are always new experiences to explore with every destination you visit, every time you visit. We are asked so often if we have a favourite island or hotel which is an impossible question to answer as they all have a unique appeal.’

The whole team are excited to be celebrating Essential Detail’s 20th Anniversary – the brand has always specialised in authentically Caribbean boutique hotels and remains true to this vision working with some of the best-loved hotels in the region, and promoting to the best loved travel specialists.’
