  Site Where: Jumeirah Road, Dubai, United Arab Emirates

And so the expansion of Four Seasons Hotels continues apace: we told you about Moscow (we’re still in shock over the prices), Boston round two, Kyoto being years off but in progress, and now Dubai (above) and Johannesburg are opening at the same time later this year. Having a little wander around the internet, we found reference to other Four Seasons Hotels coming to Puerto Rico, Oman, Barbados, and more as well.

Whether it’s a dose of winter sun in the Middle East, or summer sun and safari in South Africa you’re looking for, reservations are open from December 1 at either property.

In true Dubai-style, the Four Seasons at Jumeirah Beach does things big: 237 rooms starting at over 750 square feet, 10 restaurants and lounges, three swimming pools and spa, and a private beach. The design looks fairly typical Four Seasons, with all rooms having some form of outdoor space. Also big? Nightly rates, with an introductory offer ringing in at 2,204AED, or just over $600.

Some Celebrities Went Ham Over The Holidays

January 2, 2013 at 6:21 PM | by | ()

It look like celebs have been living it up over the holidays. So much so, we’ve had to condense it into a mini digest. Here’s what’s been going on with the bold faced and the beautiful.

KimYe Are Expecting a Baybay:Some people announce that they’re expecting with a cute little sonogram or something more demure. Not Kanye West. Nope. He had to deliver the news to thousands of folks at Atlantic City’s Revel Resort in this endearing manner, by saying during his December 30th concert, “stop the music right there and make noise for my baby mama," smiling in the direction of his boo, Kim Kardashian. Yes, that’s exactly how one wants to be referred to when revealed we are carrying your child, Yeezy!

Is Rihanna The Right Way for the BTA?

Where: Barbados
November 12, 2012 at 9:06 PM | by | ()

Rihanna, who filmed an episode of “Oprah’s Next Chapter” during the summer where she took the media queen around her Barbados childhood home, signed a three-year contract with the Barbados Tourist Authority to be the official “face” of the Caribbean island. BTA chairman Adrian Elcock, made the announcement at the Hilton Barbados Hotel during the island’s annual Crop Over Festival that the ads would be released in time for the island’s winter high season.

The 24-year-old songstress, whose new album “Unapologetic” officially drops November 19th, returns to Barbados often, so it’s no wonder she was a choice for the BTA, despite her frequent, and often unpleasant mentions in the news with paramour Chris Brown, alcohol and drugs.

But it’s no secret she’s a proud Bajan and a fan of hip hotels like The House. We do wonderin this new role if she’ll promote The Crane, an island institution (and its oldest private hotel), which is about to go IPO in hopes of raising BDS$120 million. Seems a little stuffy for her taste, but she's also brought lucky fans for tea and an overnight at Sandy Lane, one of the most high falutin' resorts on the island, so one never knows.

We’ve seen a few of the photos that were supposedly “leaked” of the new ad campaign and we're divided in our opinion of them.

We all know that hotels have gotten hip to Facebook, offering their new fans and friends special deals through the social networking site. But sometimes it also pays to be a fan of a tourism agency on Facebook if you're looking for some vacation deals.

Fans of the Barbados Beat on Facebook can log in daily for promotional codes to stay, spa and dine at the best destinations on island or access different deals via status updates. And like any other "savvy" social media plan, the hotels know to also tweet their deals on Twitter.

Help the Turtles at Hilton Barbados

Where: Needhams Point, Christ Church, Barbados
July 20, 2009 at 12:29 PM | by | ()

If helping a worthy cause makes you feel a bit less guilty about vacationing in far-flung, exotic spots, then the Hilton Barbados has a package designed just for you – the Hilton Barbados Turtle Swim Package. Yep, help the turtles and have fun all at the same time.

The package includes a 50% discount on participation in the Turtle Swim experience at the Hilton, but also gives 5% of the cost of your package as a donation to the Barbados Sea Turtle Project to take care of the protected hawksbill turtles of the area. With nightly package rates starting at $229, they also include breakfast for two and a complimentary upgrade if it's available.

Helping the turtles has been done before – the Westin Puerto Vallerto has done it, and so has the Marco Island Marriott, just to name a couple. But c'mon, turtles are still cute and we don't really care if it's not such an original idea, we still want to help them out.
