DNEW YORK, NY – Hotels and resorts across Martinique are rolling out the red carpet like never before for US travelers this summer by offering attractive discounts on four- and seven-night packages. Double occupancy rates start as low as US$68 per night for four-night stays, and US$62 per night for seven nights – that’s just a bit more than US$30 per person, per night, for an exotic Caribbean vacation on the Isle of Flowers.
Vacationers have a choice of 12 distinctive properties, including two of Martinique’s largest – Hotel Karibea Resort Sainte Luce (300 rooms) and Baie du Galion Resort (178 rooms) – both members of the Karibea Resorts chain, the largest hotel operator in the French West Indies with six resorts in Martinique alone. Both properties are offering “Fourth Night Free” savings on summer resort stays completed by September 30, 2010. For reservations and more information, visit www.hotel-caribbean-karibea.com .
