A very merry white (sand) Christmas in the Caribbean

19th September 2011 Print
Peter Island Resort & Spa

Imagine a cold winter day giving way to pearl-white sand beneath your feet and turquoise-blue waters glimmering in the sun. If you dream of a luxurious Caribbean holiday getaway, look no further than Peter Island Resort & Spa.

Delight in the unveiling of an enchanting Gingerbread House at Drake's Lounge while the Old Time Christmas Carol Band plays. Relax on the famous Deadman's Beach, or take joy in making a sandcastle just in time for a visit from Saint Nicholas. A Grand Christmas Eve buffet, overflowing with the freshest island cuisine and finest fare adds to the holiday-inspired theme. Listen to the sounds of a traditional Caribbean steel band and raise a glass to toast a spectacular fiery red and orange sunset. Keep the holiday spirit in full swing with a Christmas Day buffet in the Tradewinds Restaurant, offering a variety of carving stations plus all the trimmings; a feast Ebenezer Scrooge would even celebrate. Guests looking to walk off a few of those holiday goodies can join Peter Island's General Manager, Wilbert Mason, on the courts for a tennis match, or on a 5K Walk to Sunset Loop.  Don't forget to take a camera to capture the gorgeous sweeping views.

For those who seek more than lavish buffets and musical entertainment, a relaxing trip to the spa just might be the perfect holiday treat. This year the Spa at Peter Island will feature a 'What's Under the Tree' special. Enjoy a "Mr. and Mrs. Claus" couples massage in one of Peter Island's beachside private bohios complete with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries or unwind with a Pumpkin Body Wrap that combines an exfoliation scrub, the power of pumpkin enzymes, and the nourishment of a body cream.

Overnight accommodations start at $1,225 (*£776) for an Oceanview Room or $1,640 (*£1,039) for a Beachfront Junior Suite, double occupancy with meals included. Guests can also opt for one of Peter Island's secluded villas: the recently renovated Hawk's Nest or Crow's Nest, or the signature villa, Falcon's Nest.
