Stress-Busting Caribbean Packages

The Jr. Suite at Hotel Le Toiny in St. Barth.

Stress is a universal concept that just about everyone is familiar with. While some experts say activity will get rid of the tension, others like you and I know that a beach vacation can also make a world of difference. But why take any chances? When your clients come to you in need of a getaway, point them in the direction of an active beach vacation like one of the three Caribbean packages here.

Stress-free Sailing A nautical adventure might do just the trick to get your clients back in ship-shape. Consider St. Barths’ Hotel Le Toiny, offering an Into the Blue promotion that invites guests to sail around the Caribbean for two nights aboard the Sea Flower sailboat, and get their land legs back with a 3-night hotel stay.

The maritime portion of the escape comes complete with skipper, gas, equipment and daily onboard breakfast, plus two scuba diving opportunities. Meanwhile, on land, guests will stay in one of the property’s 15 Villa Suites overlooking Le Toiny Bay, each featuring its own recently updated private heated pool and terrace.

Also included in the 5-night package is a bottle of chilled white wine and gourmet snacks as a welcome gift; a three-course dinner at Restaurant Le Gaiac, which serves gourmet and traditional French cuisine with a Creole accent; two 1-hour spa treatments; a Smart rental car; daily breakfast and roundtrip transportation from St. Barths’ airport or harbor.

The Into the Blue promotion is available April 10-Dec. 19, with rates starting at $5,965 dbl and including all immigration charges when sailing. For more information, call (800) 680-0832 or visit
