A Steal on Barbadian Bliss, Off-Season Before the Holiday Rush

September 23, 2003 -- Once Labor Day barbeques go out, you know it's time to gear up for the craziness of Christmas/New Year holidays: from shop hoping to speed baking, it's all about physical -- and emotional -- stamina! If you plan on engaging in full-contact Holiday celebrations, you need to prepare yourself and book a pre-holiday retreat session preferably in a sunny climate, and quiet surroundings. Consider a pre-emptive strike with a visit to Barbados (and this one is a real bargain).

The proprietors of Barbados' Almond Beach Resort can offer you savings up to 35% off the usual prices at their all-inclusive resort with packages that start at just $939, including airfare. Their offer includes four nights' lodging with room service, all meals, snacks and beverages you may desire, a variety of sports and activities, including motorized water sports. All hotel taxes, service charges and roundtrip airport/hotel transfers are taking care of as well.

These rates are based on Miami departures, but many add-ons are pretty low:

  • $50 from Orlando or Philadelphia
  • $60 from Atlanta, Boston, Hartford, New York or Washington, D.C.
  • $90 from Norfolk, Raleigh and Richmond
  • $120 from Charlotte or Detroit
  • $130 from Pittsburgh
  • $140 from Chicago
  • $220 from Los Angeles

The $939 rate is per person for a four-night stay, based on double occupancy for a deluxe poolroom category and is subject to availability. Travel must be completed by December 20, 2003. US departure and security taxes not included.
