WHERE’S HOT Antigua
LOOK OUT FOR After some re-scheduling that only served to increase the anticipation, new hotel Hodges Bay by Elegant Hotels has pencilled in a November 2018 launch date. Just in time to take early 2019 holidays to Antigua up a notch. Plus, now that we’ve guaranteed our prices for the rest of 2019 and into 2020, there’s even more choice for when you visit Antigua and beyond. Barbados, Cancun, Grenada, St. Lucia, Tobago, Turks & Caicos, Dominican Republic and Jamaica all feature in our selection of islands bookable now for 2020 holidays to the Caribbean. We also know how popular the Caribbean is for families, so we work closely with our airlines to secure exclusive flight availability for these key school holiday dates, that won’t be beaten.
STILL HOT Antigua’s timeless island charm never goes out of style; its beachfront hotels are always ready to impress Caribbean visitors new and old. Still in vogue and set to be as popular as ever in 2019 are: Starfish Jolly Beach and Blue Waters for family-friendly fun; Galley Bay and Sandals Grande Antigua for adults-only tranquillity; and, well, all of the above for dream weddings. If you’re planning your big day in 2019, why not choose a stunning beach venue and take your first steps as newlyweds in paradise?
KENWOOD TIP With literally hundreds of beaches sharing both Atlantic and Caribbean coastlines, plus year-round sunshine as one the West Indies’ north-eastern islands, Antigua will be perfect whenever you visit. But plan your Antigua holiday for summer 2019, and you’ll be witness to one of the biggest and best cultural events in recent years. Antigua Carnival 2019 will take to the streets from Friday 26th July until 6th August 2019. Join the procession for ten days of reggae rhythms, sizzling barbecue, colourful costumes and beaming smiles. Not to be missed.
WHERE’S HOT Orlando
LOOK OUT FOR Every season is Star Wars season at Hollywood Studios, and fan’s are about to be treated to something bigger and better than ever before. Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge is opening in Autumn 2019. Expect to experience a galaxy far, far away where you’ll be able to explore the Planet of Batuu, pilot the Millennium Falcom and board a Star Destroyer (all whilst immersed in an intergalactic battle against the First Order.) We predict this being an early favourite on your next 2019 Disney holiday.
