Residents urged to support Staycation Month

First Prev 1 2 Next Last

Residents can make the most of a stay in one of the island's hotels over the next few weeks after the launch of a Staycation Month yesterday.

The promotion, led by the Bermuda Tourism Authority, features ten properties in an attempt to help “stimulate spending and support industry jobs”.

Rates for residents start at $175 a night in September and some enhanced packages include meals, spa treatments, credits for use in the resort and rounds of golf.

Glenn Jones, the interim chief executive of the BTA, said: “In a year when many of us are not taking overseas vacations, this is a wonderful opportunity for locals to discover the charms of our own island, while supporting Bermuda's hospitality community.

“Whether it is a midweek getaway or a weekend retreat with the whole family, Staycation Month showcases a variety of hotels, packages and amenities to suit different needs, preferences and budgets.”

Azura Bermuda, Cambridge Beaches Resort & Spa, Grotto Bay Resort, Coco Reef Resort and the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club are among the hotels taking part. They were joined by The Loren Hotel, Newstead Belmont Hills Golf Resort & Spa, Pompano Beach Resort, The Reefs Resort & Club and Rosewood Bermuda. A total of 21 hotels and resorts were open and welcoming guests as of yesterday.

Stephen Todd, the Bermuda Hotel Association chief executive, said: “Our member properties participating in Staycation Month are extremely appreciative of the ongoing support local residents have provided.

“It comes at an opportune time, permitting hotels to reopen properties and once again welcome back to work our previously laid-off colleagues.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone.”
