The episode, thankfully, wasn’t a total loss. I was completely enamored with the gorgeous island of St. Lucia, where Jake spent the last two episodes wooing the ladies, with over-the-top an romantic rendezvous that included activities such as yachting adventures and private beach dinners. I visited the island years ago for the St. Lucia Jazz Festival but didn’t spend nearly enough time — and now, of course, I’m dying to go back.
And, now I can — and you can, too. More than 20 of Saint Lucia’s resorts, along with American Airlines, are participating in the “Red Rose Romance” Promotion with packages including Bachelor-esque offerings such as a scenic helicopter rides, couples massages, and romantic sunset cruises. Getaways must be booked by March 31 for travel by the end of the year. Check out www.stlucianow.com for individual hotel rates, rules and regulations, and to book.
Or even better, win a trip through the ‘As Seen on The Bachelor’ sweepstakes. Enter to win eight nights at the four luxury resorts featured on The Bachelor- two nights at LeSport The Body Holiday, Cap Maison, Jalousie Plantation and Jade Mountain (which happens to have the most stunning hotel rooms I’ve ever seen in my entire life). Also included is round trip coach class airfare on American Airlines (from the U.S. and Canada only), meals and round trip airport/hotel ground transportation.
Now you can have the same experience as the ladies on The Bachelor. Only you won’t have “On the Wings of Love” playing in the background. And that’s a good thing.
