Lighthouse Bay Resort, Barbuda’s ‘All in the Family Together’ Reunion Package is Ultimate in Private Island Vacation Escape

May 3, 2012

A couple arrives by helicopter to Lighthouse Bay, a private island resort in Barbuda.

Lighthouse Bay Resort (www.LighthouseBayResort.com) in Barbuda is offering the “ultimate” private vacation escape with a seven-day/six-night “All in the Family Together Reunion.” Privacy is paramount with only nine suites allowing groups of up to 23 people to virtually “own” a private island for a week with luxurious accommodations, superior service and 17 miles of pristine pink sand beach.

The seven-day/six-night “All in the Family Together Reunion” package includes the entire island buyout of Lighthouse Bay Resort which features nine suites, all meals and drinks, and use of a private fresh water pool. In-room amenities include: flat screen satellite televisions, iPod alarm clock CD players, complimentary international telephone calls, personal laptops and iPads for guests’ use while on property, and Wi-Fi Internet connection. For added convenience, complimentary laundry service is available.

Other highlights of this package include the following for all members of the group:

  • · Day charter complete with lunch, snorkel and sail gear
  • · One hour of horseback riding
  • · Group cooking class with Chef Lennox
  • · Beach BBQ and bonfire
  • · Personal photographer and commemorative album with photos

The “All in the Family Together Reunion” package is available through Aug. 12, 2012 with all-inclusive package rates starting at $38,999 for up to 23 people per night. Transfers to the resort can be arranged for an additional cost to the package.

Exclusivity and seclusion are premium at Barbuda’s five-star Lighthouse Bay Resort. Situated on its own private island upon a narrow stretch of land between 17 miles of unspoiled pink sand beach and the clear turquoise water of the Caribbean Sea to the front and the blue-green serenity of the Codrington Lagoon to the rear, privacy is guaranteed as the property is only accessible by air via The Caribbean Helicopters. The other option of transfers is S.V.G. (St. Vincent and The Grenadines) Airlines that flies to Codrington Airport and then guests are transferred via land and water taxi to the resort.

Lighthouse Bay’s fresh, innovative cuisine and personalized daily menus include homemade breads and pastas, seafood and seasonal foods, all combined by the resort’s highly-trained executive chef to create an inspired dining experience at each meal.

Lighthouse Bay’s location on a private island is ideal for relaxing and renewing at the beach or by the freshwater pool while taking in the spectacular scenery. Guests who want to venture off-property can visit the world’s largest frigate bird sanctuary or enjoy sailing, fishing, horseback riding and other active pursuits arranged by the hotel staff.

For more information about the hotel, call 1-888-214-8552 or 1-646-688-2903 or contact the resort’s USA Representative, Wendy Friese, at 212-616-5032, visit www.LighthouseBayResort.com and www.facebook.com/lighthousebayresort, or e-mail: info@lighthousebarbuda.com.
