An elite partnership offers Antigua savings

By: By Michael Lowe

American Airlines and Elite Island Resorts are teaming up to celebrate American Airlines’ new nonstop service between Miami and Antigua. Clients booking all-inclusive Caribbean vacations on Antigua for seven or more nights in September or October will receive resort savings of up to 40 percent plus roundtrip airfares of $299 from all major East Coast gateways.

Travelers from the Midwest and West Coast areas will be subject to airfare supplements of $100 and $200 respectively.

Flights and accommodations must be booked by Sept. 15 for Elite Island Resorts’ Fantastic Fall promotion available for three Elite Island properties, The Verandah Resort & Spa, St. James’s Club & Villas and Galley Bay Resort & Spa.

The Verandah Resort & Spa is an eco-friendly resort spanning 30 acres of Antigua’s shores. Hiking and eco-adventures abound outside the resort, while 700-square-foot, oceanfront suites can be found within. The property is an active participant in reducing greenhouse gas emissions, rationing its use of energy and conserving the natural resources of Antigua and the Caribbean.

Galley Bay Resort & Spa is an intimate tropical hideaway and top-rated adult retreat. Travelers can book oceanfront luxury suites or lagoon-view Gauguin cottages with Tahitian decor and ambience. Here, guests can enjoy the Caribbean sun by day and live music, cocktail parties and Caribbean barbecues by nightfall. For some respite and relaxation, Galley Bay’s Indulge Spa — which recently opened in January — boasts a full menu of massages, facials and salon treatments, as well as a full line of Pevonia Botanica products.

St. James’s Club & Villas is located on a 100-acre peninsula and caters to couples, families and singles. With two white sand beaches, travelers can pick up snorkel gear or a kayak and head out into the open water. Four distinct pools, a kids’ club, a spa and a salon ensure that there’s something for just about everyone. Guests staying here can choose from sea view suites designed with tropical decor or 1,600-square-foot, two-bedroom villas suitable for families or for those who like to spread out in style.
