What is the Tourism Enhancement Fund?
The Tourism Enhancement Fund (TEF), is a private sector initiative established on 1
October 2013, designed to allow the Tourism industry a greater opportunity to play an integral role in the sustainable development of our destination. The TEF is financed by a small, voluntary donation from our guests of $2 USD per night and goes towards community development and environmental projects and actions which will affect the livelihoods of our current and future generations. By collecting a small voluntary fee from our visitors, the Saint Lucia Hotel and Tourism Association will also be able to support projects specific to ensuring that our island is clean and safe for visitors and residents alike, including the beautification of specific areas of our island....
The TEF is managed by a Board of Trustees comprising representatives from the Public and Private Sectors
