Hello from Jamaica and the Sandals STAR Awards. STAR stands for Sandals Travel Agent Recognition. Every year Sandals invites their top travel agencies to come down to a Sandals location for these awards. This year we are being hosted at the beautiful Sandals Whitehouse.
The Chairman and CEO, Butch and Adam Stewart were here and brought us up to date on some of the things that Sandals has been working on. Have you ever dreamed about an over the water bungalow but thought Tahiti was too far to go? Well dream no more. Sandals, is introducing their new over the water bungalows in St. Lucia in 2012. They are going to be stunning, with their in room Jacuzzi, glass floors and large outdoor patios. They will be something to watch for. Another huge announcement was that Sandals is going to be giving discounts for people in the Canadian Armed Forces. We will update you as soon as we have all the details in on that program.
Extensive renovations are under way right now at Sandals Ocho Rios and should be completed no later than February 2011. For those of you with children, you will be happy to know that Big Bird is coming to Beaches this fall and will be at the Beaches Resorts for the next year. With so many great things happening at Sandals, it’s hard not get excited about the resorts.
Last but not least, Uniglobe Carefree Travel was nominated for Top Travel Agency in Western Canada. It is great to be among some of the best agencies in the West!
I would just like to close with Sandals new slogan:
More Quality Inclusions than any other resort ON THE PLANET. If you have ever been to a Sandals Resort, you know that just about sums it up. If you are looking for a quality vacation this year, think Sandals.
A big Thank You to everyone from Sandals for hosting such a great event and we look forward to being invited again next year.
