Sunsail's Colonna Resort Opens for 2010 Vacations in Antigua

CLEARWATER, FL--(Marketwire - March 16, 2010) - Sunsail Sailing Vacations is delighted to announce Colonna Resort, its Caribbean sailing and watersports resort in Antigua, will be opening under new management on March 19, 2010 with a complete Sunsail beach, along with enhanced hotel services and new food and beverage packages.

A stunning, tropical resort on the northern tip of Antigua in Hodges Bay, Colonna Resort is perfectly situated to offer guests beautiful beaches, unique wildlife encounters, and the best year-round dinghy sailing and windsurfing in the Caribbean's crystal clear waters. Italian style red-roofed buildings, terracotta walkways and tropical gardens create an attractive backdrop for the pool, beaches and bay. Guests can dine in the open-air restaurant overlooking the palm-lined beach or enjoy delicious rum punch and cocktails at our traditional Caribbean bar, De Rum Shack.

Cheryl Powell, Sunsail's Chief Operating Officer, remarked, "We are excited to offer Colonna Resort as a destination once again, and to work in partnership with the new management team in order to take advantage of this resort's unrivaled Antiguan location and superb weather conditions. We look forward to welcoming our guests into this exhilarating island experience!"

Watersports Beach
Colonna's private watersports beach, with protected harbor for launch and return, is ideal for beginners, while the constant cross-shore trade winds make it a favorite locale for intermediate and advanced sailors and windsurfers. A range of courses and free clinics are available, and fully-qualified RYA Instructors are on hand to assist.

Children's Programs
Children of all ages will enjoy a great time on and off the water! For those aged 8 to 17 our dedicated Youth Sailing Club offers a structured combination of sailing and fun. Upon request, the hotel can arrange a nanny or local babysitters.

Most of Colonna's guest rooms feature spectacular views of the Caribbean Sea, pool or exotic gardens. A cool retreat from the tropical sun, all rooms are air-conditioned with en-suite baths, new beds and many at-home conveniences. Accommodations range from single rooms to three-bedroom villas that accommodate 6 or more people.

Special offers include a 10% Early Booking discount* with bookings made 6 months or more in advance. Colonna Resort's week-long packages include all watersports equipment, two lunches, five dinners and dinner drinks.
