Grand Lucayan, Bahamas Offers Caribbean Group Retreat, $100 Travel Credit

As the closest major Caribbean meetings resort to the United States, located just 55-miles off the coast of Florida, Grand Lucayan's Ride the Wave Package in The Bahamas offers exceptional amenities to groups looking for a Caribbean retreat, plus a travel credit to compensate for time spent en route.

Through December 2013, groups reserving at least 20 rooms per night for a minimum of three nights can take advantage of Grand Lucayan's Ride the Wave Package.

With rates starting at just $189 per person per night including taxes and fees and based on double occupancy, the package includes $100 per room travel credit, an Ocean View Guest Room, a one-hour Bahama Mama Rum greeting, one upgrade to an Ocean View One Bedroom Suite, round trip airport transfers for up to four people, one complimentary room per 25 paid, a general session with one screen and LCD projector, and more.

Boasting the largest meeting and events space on the island, Grand Lucayan offers flexible and modern meeting spaces, accommodating groups, corporate retreats, dinners, weddings, celebratory functions and other special events – not to mention it's just steps away from Grand Bahama Island's crystal clear ocean.

The sprawling conference center, equipped with cutting-edge audio-visual equipment and super-helpful staff, can easily be reconfigured and themed for formal or casual events. From the Grand Ballroom, which can accommodate up to 2,500 guests to the intimate ocean view meeting rooms in the stately Manor House, accommodating up to 287 guests, Grand Lucayan has an event space that fits every need.

For those that prefer an outdoor meeting or event, Grand Lucayan, Bahamas has more than 50,000 square feet of outdoor function space, including pool decks, the beach, the Great Lawn, which accommodates up to 2,865 guests, and Chop Beach, which offers seating for 1,700 guests. Full catering service and a business center is also available.
