Island Xclusive to visit Guyana, features Sonia Noel on Christmas Day

Come Christmas Day, the travelogue Island Xclusive will feature interviews with Guyanese fashion designer Sonia Noel; St Lucian Joyce Destang, owner and managing director of the Bay Gardens Beach Resort & Spa and Caribbean Nobel Prize winner Derek Walcott.
Island Xclusive, touted as the ultimate guide for travellers who want to escape the everyday routine, is hosted by St Lucian Jeanille Bonterre. Each episode includes a TV show, a travel blog and webisodes; seasonal promotions are offered via its interactive website Jeanille, who met and interviewed Sonia during a recent trip to St Lucia, has reportedly been inspired by the very persuasive Guyanese to visit these shores, particularly the eco resorts and Kaieteur Falls.

According to reports, Sonia got the opportunity to outfit Jeanille for one of her shows and Jeanille expressed that she had long wanted to wear a Sonia Noel piece.

Jeanille’s repertoire includes hosting Downtown Island on the former MTV Tempo, as well as the concert series Live and Direct and being the spokesperson for the Caribbean AIDS awareness campaign Choices.

Island Xclusive, which she also produces, is broadcast on CBS affiliate One Caribbean TV in the US, Central & Latin America and the Caribbean. It is also online at islandxclusive. com.
