Facebook Giveaway, Too
In addition to the Twitter “12 Days of Travel” contest, there is a separate Facebook sweepstakes with an additional chance to win a trip give away to any one of MARCAM’s nine resorts.
To enter this contest, simply:
- “Like” both Paradise by Marriott and CheapOair on Facebook
- Any time during the “12 Days of Travel” (December 1, 12pm EST-December 13, 12pm EST) post a comment on the CheapOair blog post stating which of the nine Marriott and Renaissance resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico you would visit if given the chance to go to any of them
- A randomly selected winner will receive three free nights to the resort he/she picks in his/her blog comment.
Note, among these two giveaways (Facebook and Twitter) you cannot win two prizes. Keep that in mind as you Tweet if you really have your heart set on that Grand Prize, or a stay at a particular resort.
So, What’s the Spa Connection?
By now you might be wonder, what the heck does this have to do with spa travel? Well, each of the nine resorts that make up the MARCAM collection has an on-site spa! I can vouch firsthand for the fabulous facilities at the Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino, as I checked out the hotel’s Balinese-inspired Mandara Spa firsthand a couple years ago. And I’m told the JW Marriott Cancun Resort’s spa is particularly impressive: it’s a whopping 35,000 square feet and is consistently ranked one of the best spas in all of Mexico.
Bet you can guess which spa-centric resort I’d like to visit if I win! Then again, my brother and his wife had an incredible honeymoon at the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort… and I’ve always wanted to go to St. Kitts. So many options! Off to do some thinking about how to comment on that CheapOair blog post tomorrow…
