Caribbean tourism stakeholders are joining forces to provide aid to Dominica following the widespread damage caused by Tropical storm Erika in September. The Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association (CHTA) is partnering with the Dominica Hotel and Tourism Association (DHTA) on “Caribbean Hotels Unite for Dominica,” an online auction to benefit the island in Erika’s wake.
Conceived by Karolin Troubetzkoy, CHTA’s first vice president, the initiative features an online auction of two- to seven-night vacation packages donated by hotels across the Caribbean. The auction proceeds will go into a special DHTA account, with the funds to be distributed in Dominica under guidelines created by a joint CHTA/DHTA committee. The vacations are being auctioned on Charity Buzz, an auction website.
“It was rewarding to see how quickly and enthusiastically our Caribbean hotels responded to our outreach — we are a large Caribbean family who can rely on each other in our respective times of need,” said Troubetzkoy.
The auction offers are available at resorts and destinations across the region. Curacao’s Santa Barbara Beach and Golf Resort is offering a three-night stay in a resort view room, while St. Lucia’s Jade Mountain is offering a five-night stay in sun category “sanctuary” accommodations.
Also available are a two-night Stay at the El Conquistador Resort, A Waldorf Astoria Resort in Los Croabas, Puerto Rico; a two-night Stay in a Deluxe Room at Marriott Frenchman’s Reef in St. Thomas; a seven-night stay in a superior room at Anacaona Boutique Hotel in Anguilla and a five-night stay in a deluxe oceanfront room at Dominica’s Fort Young Hotel.
