16 of the Island’s Resorts Participating
|NEW YORK, NY, June 6, 2006 – Visitors planning trips to the famed pink
sand beaches of Bermuda over the coming months can now do so with greater
peace of mind due to the first-ever “Hurricane Guarantee” program offered
by 16 of the island’s top resorts.
While the occurrence of hurricanes hitting the island has historically been rare, Bermuda’s Hurricane Guarantee takes the worry out of booking and provides guests with complete confidence that they will be able to enjoy a “Bermudaful’ vacation through the following program, created by the Bermuda Hotel Association:
“I applaud the Bermuda Hotel Association and its participating members for taking the necessary steps to provide peace of mind for our visitors,” said Dr. the Hon. Ewart F. Brown, JP, MP, Bermuda’s Deputy Premier and Minister of Tourism and Transport. “This is a very important step moving forward as we understand that even the threat of a hurricane interrupting the vacation that folks have worked so hard to earn can lead to a great deal of anxiety. We think this comprehensive program will offer some peace of mind and let them concentrate on enjoying all that we have to offer.”
Bermuda, just under two hours from East Coast gateway cities, stretches for 23 miles along turquoise waters, surrounded by a 200-square-mile coral reef plateau. Bermuda's diverse activities offer an array of vacation options, including more wreck dives than anywhere else in the world, championship golf, horseback riding, world-renowned deep sea fishing and smooth pink beaches to rest on by day's end. Bermuda’s accommodations range from luxury resorts to intimate guest cottages and family-run inns, all incorporating the sophistication and hospitality unique to the Bermuda experience.
