Party Like Rihanna In Barbados at the Famed Crop Over Festival–But Hurry Up! Aug. 1 Is the “Last Lap”

cropover.barbadosYou have seen pictures of singer Rihanna celebrating Crop Over festival in her native Barbados. So why not join her this year, especially since you can stay at Mango Bay all-inclusive hotel for off season rates.

The beachfront boutique-style Mango Bay Hotel, with just 76 rooms, is located nearby the festivities on the vibrant west coast. The Crop Over Festival, which began on June 4, 2016, is quickly approaching one of its biggest events, Grand Kadooment, which happens on Aug. 1, 2016. Grand Kadooment–aka “Last Lap”– features the island’s top costume-designers and bandleaders who come together to fill the streets with color, music and lively entertainment.

The rates? Mango Bay Hotel’s off-season all-inclusive rates start at $535 per room, per night, based on double occupancy. But you get: all meals, afternoon tea, local and brand name drinks including wine with dinner; various watersports including water-skiing, kayaking, hobiecat sailing, pedal boating and snorkeling; complimentary offering of scuba diving lessons (on-property); off-property sightseeing excursions such as a glass-bottom boat trip and a catamaran sail; as well as nightly entertainment. And if you are traveling with the kiddies, children three years of age and under sharing with two adults stay free-of-charge and children 4 to 18 years old get a reduced rate.
