“guaranteed Getaway” Hurricane Policy For Tourists Booking Caribbean Holidays At Breezes And Hedonis

After Hurricane Isaac stormed its way through the Caribbean and southern states in America last week, tourists staying at Breezes and Hedonism resorts in Jamaica and the Bahamas are being offered “Guaranteed Getaway” policies.

If a hurricane strikes while travellers are enjoying holidays in Jamaica or the Bahamas at any of the resorts, they will receive reimbursement for the value of disrupted nights as well as a voucher that can be spent in the same month, the following year.

If tourists are disrupted by a storm or hurricane as they travel to their holidays in the Caribbean, Breezes and Hedonism Resorts will provide complimentary extensions to make up the number of nights missed. Guests who have to reschedule their Caribbean holidays due to a hurricane will receive vouchers that can be used at a later date.

Holidaymakers are provided with a “sunshine guarantee” where for every day the sun is not shining, the resorts will offer a credit voucher to the value of their room. The vouchers must be used within a year and can go towards future holidays to the Caribbean.

The Breezes and Hedonism brands are operated by SuperClub Resorts and the Caribbean hotels and resorts include Hedonism II in Jamaica, Breezes Grand resort & Spa in Negril Jamaica, and Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas.

The Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas is situated in Nassau on the white sands of Cable Beach and tourists taking Bahamas holidays can enjoy facilities including four gourmet restaurants and four bars, swimming pools and Jacuzzis, tennis courts, and a variety of fun watersports.

Indian Couples Choose Malaysia For Weddings Abroad

The growing trend of getting married overseas is spreading around the world and while many couples from the West are choosing India as the magic exotic and location for their big day, many Indian couples themselves are heading to Malaysia to say “I Do”.

In November last year, Malaysia saw its largest wedding to date and the families and majority of wedding guests attending were from Bangalore.

Mohd Izal bin Mahd Nor, the director of the Malaysia Tourism Promotion Board spoke at a recent road show in Bangalore about the recent rise in weddings abroad.

“In recent times, Malaysia has become a luxury travel destination for weddings and honeymoons. We’ve had close to 40 weddings in the country in 2011,” he said.

The director explained that Malaysia is well prepared for receiving Indian couples choosing destination weddings and its hotels are offering a range of services to cater for Indian weddings.

“We’ve groups in hotels and resorts who are trained in Indian weddings. They help in decors, dress, mock trials and other rituals. We’ve trained them specifically for these sectors,” he commented.

Beach hotels and resorts in Malaysia are among the most popular venues for romantic weddings abroad in Malaysia and if permitted, many opt for beach weddings with a backdrop of the lush jungle to one side and the sparkling azure ocean to the other.

Mohd Izal bin Mahd Nor continued: “Since they take packages for four or six days, the flight operators, along with hotels owners, give them a big discount for a wedding with 200 to 300 guests. A small wedding in Malaysia costs about Rs50lakh in all.”

One advantage to weddings abroad is that the occasion often brings family and friends closer together because they are often staying at the location for up to four nights where they will have meals together, go shopping and enjoy entertainment.

According to Mintel Research, one in five couples in the United Kingdom is opting for destination weddings in an exotic destination.

There are many reasons that offer wedding packages in the UK this but the most common scenario is couples looking to save money with an overseas wedding. The average cost of a UK wedding is nearly £20,000, while a wedding in the Caribbean, for example, is just £6,500.

India is a popular wedding destination and in 2010, pop singer Katy Perry and British comedian Russell Brand got married at the Aman-e-Khas resort just outside the Ranthambhore tiger sanctuary in northern India.
