With the holidays right around the corner, everyone is just itching for the days prior to go by faster. Whether you’re celebrating a winter wedding, staying home with your loved ones, or running from the cold and retreating to the warmth of the Caribbean, here are some tips to help you make the most out of your holiday weekend.
When a big extended family gets together for the holidays, it can be difficult to please everyone: Grandma and Grandpa want to spend time with the grandkids, Mom and Dad want to relax and de-stress, and Aunt and Uncle want to make fun plans or go on an adventure. The various ages and stages of life can make it very overwhelming to choose a holiday destination for the whole family. This is why we make it easier: Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa has accommodations, food, and activities for every member of your family.
Coconut Bay is divided into two areas. First, there’s Coconut Bay’s Splash Wing, our family-friendly area of the resort. The young (as well as the young at heart) will be beyond delighted with all the activities available. Here you can enjoy CocoLand, Saint Lucia’s largest water park, featuring a huge activity pool, lazy river, and exciting water slides.
Not your thing? Challenge your companions to a paintball game, visit the animal sanctuary, or try yoga in the gazebo. Whether you want to be active and participate in water aerobics or simply chill out with a good book by the pool, the options are endless. The best part: the kids will be so entertained, they’ll forget to ask for the iPad.
The second area of the resort is Coconut Bay’s Harmony Wing, an adults-only romantic retreat. You can unwind in a private cabana, sunbathe by the pool, or visit the soothing oceanfront Sanctuary Spa without any interruptions. The Harmony Wing is perfect for those in your family looking for a romantic, quiet, and relaxing vacation.
If you’re traveling with young members of your extended family, don’t worry — you can still visit them at Splash for some holiday family bonding, eat dinner together at any of our signature restaurants, or experience snorkeling in the Caribbean as part of an excursion.
Trying to have a winter wedding, but without the “winter?” There’s no better place than gorgeous Saint Lucia to enjoy the best of both worlds. A destination wedding during your holiday vacation has many benefits:
- More of your loved ones will be able to attend the wedding since most people wait for the holidays to use their vacation days.
- There are usually exclusive holiday deals for people booking holiday vacations, which will entice more friends to save money while attending your special day.
- You and your honey are guaranteed to have the most unforgettable holiday vacation of all time.
For couples who want a tropical wedding, Coconut Bay Beach Resort & Spa is honored to be Saint Lucia’s premier destination wedding resort. In fact, we are the proud winner of the 2018 British Wedding Awards’ Best Destination Wedding Venue for the second consecutive year.
We offer several wedding packages that will transform your dream wedding into reality. From a personal wedding coordinator to private island tours to adventurous activities for you and your spouse, our wedding packages guarantee an incredible wedding experience.
Stay at Home for Christmas
Staying at home for the holidays? Make it interesting by starting a Secret Santa gift exchange for the entire family, roasting marshmallows over a fire, or even better: take advantage of this opportunity to save for your next holiday vacation. Add cash gifts to a dedicated vacation savings account and make it one of your New Year’s resolutions to add a specific percentage to the account every month. And of course, join a loyalty program to take advantage of special savings all year long.
Coconut Bay’s rewards program is perfect for the holidays since it doesn’t have blackout days or enrollment fees, and your points will never expire (yes, you read that right). You can even earn points from home by referring other guests.
Whether you’re traveling abroad, having your wedding ceremony, or even staying home for the holidays, Coconut Bay Beach & Spa Resort can help. We wish you the happiest of holidays – and we hope to see you soon!
