BEACHES Resorts across the Caribbean rolled out the red carpet for their loyal repeat clients between October 21 and 25, treating them to a week of exclusive island-themed parties, excursions and top-class events in celebration of the resorts' annual Fall Reunion Week.
Beaches Negril placed the best of Jamaica's cultural landscape on display as it jump-started the week of festivities and celebrated what was also National Heroes' Day with a Jamaica Day Jamboree, featuring an interdepartmental staff mixology competition and the riveting sounds of a local marching band. Guests later enjoyed a 'Welcome Home' Reception and Martini Extravaganza.
Also, never short on extravagance, Beaches Ocho Rios brought families through an action-packed week of Xbox competitions, an Island Adventures Fair, and like Beaches Negril, a Beach Olympics. "We had an amazing time during Reunion Week at Beaches Ocho Rios. The activities have been fun and it's something we look forward to every year. The staff have been wonderful and we are overjoyed by the level of appreciation shown by the hotel," remarked Diamond level returning guest Peggy Reznick, while unwinding around a communal bonfire.
Music, dance, and excursions were the order of the week as visitors partied in true Caribbean flair at on-resort Sesame Street Carnival Parades and aboard catamarans off the coast of Jamaica and the Turks and Caicos islands. All three properties in Negril, Ocho Rios and Turks and Caicos also came alive with water-themed revelry, including a signature Tropical Splash Pool Party and a Wet Fete Pizza Party at the resorts' Pirate Island Waterpark. Members of the much sought-after Beaches Select Rewards Club also had an opportunity to dip their forks into scrumptious local meal selections at dinners exclusively held in their honour.
"It was very successful and the resort is still pulsating from all the excitement," said Adrian Whitehead, general manager for Beaches Negril.
"Beaches is a complete vacation destination for adults and children alike — it's familial territory and tailor-made to suit the needs of everyone — and that is why our guests keep coming back every chance they get," he added.
'Beaches Reunion Week' was created over a decade ago to celebrate its repeat clients. It remains one of the most important events on the award-winning family resort chain's calendar and continues to affirm the luxury resort group of company's philosophy of exceeding guest expectations.
