Press Release: Celebrate July 4th Island-Style at Westward Look

Posted on June 28, 2013

Tucson, Ariz. (June 27, 2013) – Looking for a different way to fit in a tropical escape this July 4th weekend while sticking close to home? Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa is offering travelers the chance to take a virtual trip to Barbados while staying in Arizona with its Tropical Escape. Starting at just $99 per night from Thursday, July 4th to Sunday, July 7th, guests can visit the award-winning resort and feel like they’ve run off to the Caribbean with a stay inspired by the sights, sounds and tastes of Barbados.

Guests booking their Tropical Escape will enjoy themed happy hours and tropical music daily. At the resort’s Lookout Bar & Grill, Barbados-inspired drinks will be served, including the Tropical Highball, which blends Barbados’ world-renowned Mount Gay with Angostura bitters and ginger ale, and the ice-blended Banana-Mango Freeze, a refreshing, healthy option after a day on Westward Look’s tennis courts or at the Sonoran Spa.

As part of the Barbados experience, guests can snack on Mahi Mahi “Cutter” sandwiches; Bajan chicken and pineapple stir-fry, served on a bed of ginger beer-scented rice; and Bajan bread pudding, baked with plump raisins and served with rum sauce. Made with fruits and greens grown in Westward Look’s on-site Chef’s Garden, these dishes will be served from poolside street food carts. The resort’s award-winning fine dining restaurant, GOLD, will also feature specialties influenced by the island.

Upon arrival, guests will receive a “passport” highlighting the resort’s various outlets and activities, including on-site hiking and biking trails and the Sonoran Spa. Guests can visit designated areas in exchange for a passport stamp and valuable discounts and at the end of their stay, they can turn in their stamped passport to the front desk for a chance to win a free Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa vacation in 2014.

This Independence Day celebration is part of Westward Look Wyndham Grand Resort & Spa’s Tropical Escape tour, showcasing different island getaways each month throughout the summer through Sept. 6, 2013. Rates begin at $99 per night; for $119 per night, guests can receive a $25 food and beverage credit when they book.
