The AAA Four-Diamond resort, located on the island’s northwest coast, is offering the deeply discounted rates for stays as brief as a single night. The all-suite property features 85 spacious designer suites with rates beginning at US$445 per night for a one-bedroom Marina View Suite, not including taxes and fees.

While rooms must be booked by Sept. 30, the Summer Sale rates are valid for travel through Dec. 16, presenting an opportunity for substantial savings on getaways through late fall.

The Landings offers a true resort experience, with room rates including a range of amenities and activities. Resort guests have complimentary use of non-motorized water sports gear, ranging from kayaks, paddleboards and Hobie Cats to snorkel gear for exploring the azure blue waters and getting an up-close look at the region’s marine life. Access to the resort’s world-class fitness center and free Wi-Fi are also included.

Guests choosing an Ocean View or Beachfront Villa Suite will also have access to the services of a full-time butler who can serve as a personal concierge, make dinner reservations, arrange island tours or take care of tasks as simple as shining your shoes (provided you even bring dress shoes).

For families, the property has a Kid’s Club with a full day of activities for kids aged four to 12.
