For the ultimate in last-minute gift ideas or just an opportune time to jump on seasonal discounts for future family travel, check out Grand Isle Resort & Spa’s Give the Gift of Travel package.


Offering 20 percent discounts on the best available guest rates, travelers and family can plan for an ultra-luxury getaway for less. The package extends to one- to four-bedroom villas for any vacation plans through June 30, 2020.


Picture the long stretch of beach, pristine accommodations and crystal-blue waters of Emerald Bay on Great Exuma, Bahamas. That’s Grand Isle Resort & Spa.


Plan for a family vacation for all ages, with more water sports, activities and family-friendly fun than you’ll know what to do with, or make it a couple’s retreat with more than enough leisurely fun and relaxation opportunities to go around. ‘Tis the season!


Get on island time at Grand Isle Resort’s newly opened 23 North Beach Club, offering an escape within an escape. Take a dip in the infinity pool after making your way off the beach and unwind in the nearby daybeds, cabanas or cozy up to the indoor/outdoor bar while the kids make sand castles. Peruse the Bahamian-Asian fusion menu with the sunshine on your back and light breeze blowing by — sounds a little better than a polar vortex.


There’s plenty of fun off the resort as well, with visits to local swimming pigs (a favorite among tourists). Visit Exuma’s 365 Cays to immerse yourself in nature while feeding iguanas and swimming with sharks. Refuel with lunch at Chat ‘n Chill, or head back in the water and swim with stingrays. Keep your snorkel on and dive a little deeper to view vibrant reefs below the surface, or kick off your flippers and make your way into Georgetown.


The options are nearly endless and there’s no rush to choose right now, so you’re basically on island time already. Book using the promotion and plan for a warm-weather getaway.
