Quarantine is over, offices have reopened and even though we are still on a curfew, there’s a part of me that sometimes forget that we are in a pandemic. I think we will be living with Covid-19 for the foreseeable future. We have to stay as safe as possible while having some semblance of normalcy and enjoying what we can. I am not ready to travel out of the country as yet, but I do plan to visit an out island for the August Monday holiday. In the meantime, between time, I’m thinking of having a staycation right here, at home. I’ve seen a few hotels advertising Bahamian/Resident rates and figured it would be good to have them all listed in one place. I’ll keep updating this blog as the deals come!
- Warwick Paradise Island: I literally was scheduled to stay at the Warwick the weekend the country was shut down due to Corona. I also had planned to do a day pass for a while now and kept postponing it. I’ve heard good things about their offerings and will definitely be visiting soon. The Bahamian/ Resident rate starts at $225 double occupancy. As an all inclusive brand, food, beverages and entertainment are included. Reservations can be made via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or (242) 363-2560. This special is valid for stays between July 1st to July 31st, 2020. Update: Warwick is offering an additional special for stays in August 2020. If you book from July 17th until July 24th, resident rates start at $199! Check out Warwickparadiseisland on Instagram to learn more.
- RIU Palace Paradise Island: Within the last 2-3 years, RIU has renovated and re branded as an adult only resort; I love that. It’s something about this hotel that screams baecation to me; maybe it’s the balconies, the romantic al fresco dinner offering or the infinity pool. The Bahamian Resident rate is $140 (per person/per night) single or double occupancy. Reservations can be made via riu.com or by calling (242) 363- 3500. This offer is valid for vacations starting July 1st to October 26th, 2020.
- The Island House: Island House is one of my favorite places on New Providence. A cinema, spa, restaurants and of course a boutique hotel all in one little community is simply paradise. For my birthday this year, I intend to bring it in fabulously with an island luxury vacay. I’ve been looking at hotels in Eleuthera and Andros, but have also been eyeing this property just in case I am not able to travel. The Bahamian Resident deal is $495 per night (inclusive of all taxes & service). This includes a welcome bottle of wine, $100 room credit at Mahogany House and 10% off any spa treatment. The offer is valid starting this Friday, June 26th to September 30th, 2020. If you’re interested in booking, you can email email@example.com or call (242) 698-6300.
Please note, that with all of these specials, terms and conditions do apply. The rates are subject to change and are based on availability. If you have any questions, please reach out to the various hotels.
Starting next week, indoor seating in restaurants will be allowed, spas and the beaches are FINALLY opening! Will you be taking advantage of any of these specials? Let me know in the comments.
P.S. Y’all still be safe and be careful though. We can definitely go back to Phase 1b real quick!
