The holidays are rapidly approaching, leaving many of us scrambling to secure last-minute presents for the remaining names on our lists. You’ll be damned if you gift another impersonal leather accessory or a pair of socks.
Lucky recipients of the package will spend 2018 checking 12 islands off their bucket lists, one every second weekend of the month starting in February. The destinations include Grenada, Aruba, Barbados, and Bermuda, and though the specific location of each trip is a surprise, members are guaranteed a 4-5 star resort for 3 or 4 nights at every stop.
Round-trip airfare and accommodations are included in the price of the package and… well, that’s where we have good news and bad news.
The good news: all travel arrangements are made by the Beach of the Month Club, meaning zero hassle or stress for members who will never have to lift a finger unless it’s to drink a pina colada.
The bad news: that 5-star treatment doesn’t come cheap. In fact, it will set you back a blood-chilling US$19,999 per person.
Extravagant though that seems, your money goes to more than lounging in sugary sand and sipping the aforementioned tropical drinks. The Caribbean is still recovering from the colossal devastation of this year’s hurricane season, which left many areas without water or power, and damaged a number of restaurants, resorts, and other businesses.
“As one of the most tourism-reliant regions in the world, now more than ever is the time to visit the Caribbean,” says CheapCaribbean’s Senior Product Manager, Dan Marmontello. “While many are under the impression that the entirety of the Caribbean is closed following the recent hurricanes, we’ve found that the majority of islands are not only open for business but have suffered no negative impact from the hurricanes this season. Most of the islands remain great options for 2018 travel.”
The region is eager to welcome guests in 2018, and your tourism dollars will go a long way to helping paradise get back on its feet again. If you’re keen to help, have been struggling to spend the spare $20k burning a hole in your pocket, and want to be remembered as your squad’s greatest gift giver, check out the Beach of the Month Club here.
We won’t judge if you gift it to yourself.
