Elite Island Resorts’ new addition The Club Barbados Resort & Spa is to hold a blogathon this month to promote the hotel and the island.
The resort will host four bloggers over four weeks to share their experiences at the hotel and the island, with the separate blogs focusing on couples (Matt and Debbie Preston from travelwithamate.com and placestogo.com); young female travellers (Abigail King at insidetravellab.com); affordable luxury travel (Jayne Gorman, 40before30.com) and foodies (Niamh Shields, eatlikeagirl.com).
Each blogger will work with the hotel’s own blogathon butler Kevin Warner to develop local stories. Before leaving the island they will pass the baton onto the next blogger and spend a day sharing tips and information via social media.
“Inviting our bloggers to select and tell those stories that best suit their subscribers makes the Blogathon a great way to share beyond the brochure copy,” said Paula Whitehead, managing director at Elite Island Resorts. “It’s a fantastic way to bring the resort and island alive in real time, and we’re very excited to launch a new fun initiative.”
The Club was previously an Almond Resorts property.
