“Many of our guests ask to take over the island for special occasions such
as birthdays, weddings and corporate retreats,” said Terry Bechtold,
general manager of Little Palm Island Resort & Spa. “We decided to create
this package specifically for people looking to have it all taken care of
and then some,” added Bechtold.

The Million Dollar Weekend is based on availability, must be made at least
two weeks in advance of arrival, and is suited for 30 couples (60 persons
maximum.) Travel agent commission is standard 10% on rooms only.

For those that don’t want to spend a million dollars, but still want to
splurge a bit, Little Palm Island is also offering a “Swept Away Package,”
that includes private car transport, champagne upon arrival, spa
treatments and private meals created by the resort’s executive chef. This
five-night package is $7,430 from April 1 to June 30, 2005.

Little Palm Island Resort & Spa is an intimate and romantic tropical
hideaway. The resort’s 30 thatched-roof bungalows are discreetly nestled
throughout the island and offer private sundecks and ocean views. This
secluded hideaway, nestled amid hundreds of Jamaican coconut palm trees,
provides the ideal location for guests to completely detach themselves
from everyday life. The resort offers an Indonesian-inspired SpaTerre, a
private marina and acclaimed dining. Little Palm Island provides guests
with complete privacy and luxury.


Andrew Harper’s Hideaway, Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure and others
have rated Little Palm Island as one of the top resorts in the United
States. The resort has been recognized in the Zagat “Top 50 Small Hotels
in the US” and “Top Hotel in Florida” and is a member of Virtuoso and
American Express Fine Hotels & Resorts.
