Paradise does not necessarily mean hours of long airport queues and turbulence.
In fact, it couldn’t be a simpler process to pack a light bag, lock up your home, roll down the car windows and feel the tropical breeze in your hair as you head 40 miles east of George Town to The Reef Resort.
And it needn’t put a dent in your wallet, either. With room rates starting from as low as CI$119 for a studio suite and with 10 per cent off spa treatments at Soleil Spa and 10 per cent off any White Sand Watersports excursion, along with tempting drink specials, you are definitely making a savings.
This staycation offer has been running all summer and is now being extended, although rates may increase at peak times.
According to the Director of The Reef Resort, Tom McCallum, the staycation promotion has been very popular among residents.
“Oh yes…. local business is up by a big amount… lots of locals out each weekend,” he says.
And it seems guests are really enjoying themselves.
“Mike Flowers’ revamp of our beach bar Rusty Pelican is a big factor,” says McCallum. “It is now the new place to hang out in the Eastern Districts. Plus White Sand Watersports, on the beach next to the beach bar, offers great beach activities such as paddle boarding and power snorkelling.”
So what’s stopping you? Pick up the phone, or type an email, get your loved ones psyched up and prepare to have the island paradise holiday of your dreams, without the stress of getting there.
