Dunk 2011-12 Rates: Full Board Will Cost Less
Tuesday, 30 November 2010 12:09
In response to feedback received, Dunk Island Resort will be changing its tariff to full board from 1st April 2011, with new rates including bed/break fast and lunch/dinner delivering a win for guests.
“The new Full Board rates are structured so that guests will pay less on the new tariff than if they currently stayed at the resort and paid current rates with added meal plans. For example, a couple currently staying in a Garden Room with a daily $69 meal plan (L/D) pay $486. Under the new rates, the same product will cost $475 - a saving of $11.00,” said Hideaway Resortsʼ chairman Rupert Greenhough. “Travel industry and guest feedback received since taking ownership of the resort one year ago, has lead us to this full board concept, which we believe will enhance the guest experience in tandem with the resortʼs full refurbishment we have just announced,” he said. The new rates are also fully commissionable for travel agents.
“For many families in particular, being food inclusive means mum and dad can relax and enjoy their holiday even more as itʼs one less decision to consider and we know spend is a key decision factor for both our domestic and international guests,” said Rupert Greenhough. “We will continue providing quality and variety in combinations of a la carte and buffet across the resort's restaurants.”
Currently, a $6.5 million upgrade is underway throughout the resort. The Plantation Bar and the Beachcomber Restaurant will undergo a full repaint and refinish, as well as undergoing some improvements to the buffet areas to enable chefs to interact more in food service delivery.
The Terrace Restaurant refit will feature new chairs and tables, some soft furnishings and work will continue on the Conference Centre to create a new, covered, external break out space. Air conditioning has been upgraded to all areas including the Conference Centre.
Dunk Island Resort continues to cater well to families, with children 12 years and under still able to stay free and eat free (off the kids menu and the buffet) when accompanying an adult. There are plenty of activities to keep children of all ages happy and occupied on Dunk Island, for them - and their parents - there's also the popular Dunk Island Kids Club.
