Sunwing Vacations Unveils the New 2016/2017 Brochure

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - April 19, 2016) -  Sunwing Vacations is pleased to announce their 2016/17 brochure. With over 130 new hotels added to this edition, there is something to suit all tastes and budgets. This edition offers 35 popular vacation destinations across the Caribbean, Mexico and Central America accessed via convenient direct flights on Sunwing Airlines available from 32 different gateways across Canada.

President of Tour Operations for Sunwing Vacations, Andrew Dawson, commented, "Now even simpler to navigate, this latest edition of the brochure includes easy-to-read approval ratings based on verified feedback from over 600,000 of last year's Sunwing guests, a uniquely relevant source for Canadian vacationers to the south. Another new feature is the three highlights provided by our team of expert product buyers, who have carefully selected each resort included in the brochure themselves."

Along with continuing to offer its popular Relax Resorts™ and Smile Resorts™, where couples and families alike benefit from generous inclusions and additional perks, the tour operator has also introduced Sunwing Selection hotels. Exclusive to Sunwing Vacations, this new handpicked line-up of properties has been chosen based on their popularity, value and superior range of amenities. Vacationers can also look forward to unbeatable vacation deals and preferred treatment from top resort partners. This coming winter, the brand new Royalton Negril is sure to be a popular addition once it opens for sale later this month. Enjoying a spectacular beachfront location, the resort will offer varied reservation-free à la carte dining, daily entertainment and kids and teen programs.

For additional family travel inspiration, the brochure also includes information on which resorts accommodate families of five and more. Parents will also appreciate learning about the newly-launched Kidcations program where they can watch firsthand video reviews of popular kid-friendly resorts by kids themselves and send questions to family travel experts for additional recommendations.

Also, popular with younger travellers and those young at heart, there are even more SplashWorld Resorts® (where vacationers enjoy unlimited, complimentary access to an on-site or nearby waterpark as part of their stay) to choose from in this latest edition. New additions include Royalton Blue Waters. Opening fall 2016, this luxury Montego Bay property offers an on-site waterpark and lazy river, dining options across 11 restaurants, kids and teen programs and plentiful land and water sports options.

The 2016/2017 brochure also features several new destinations. A highlight is sure to be the Caribbean island of Saint Lucia, renowned for its lush interior, golden beaches and the world-famous twin Pitons. Available to customers soon, Royalton Saint Lucia Resort and Spa promises to offer a sleek and elegant haven from which to explore everything this unique Caribbean island has to offer when it opens in fall 2016.

Also new for this edition is the laidback Dominican resort town of Juan Dolio. Located on a prime stretch of sandy beach, Emotions by Hodelpa is perfect for those who like to keep active and offers tennis courts, a climbing wall, fitness centre, non-motorized watersports and golf packages. Another popular inclusion is sure to be the Pacific Mexican resort destination of Manzanillo, where vacationers can take advantage of non-motorized watersports, daily sports and entertainment program and complimentary kids clubs at the beachfront Barceló Karmina Palace Deluxe.

A number of new routes have also been introduced including Toronto to Saint Lucia, London to Montego Bay, Regina to Grand Bahama and Kitchener to Punta Cana. Several gateways will also benefit from additional services this coming winter. Both Victoria and Kelowna will operate with two routes instead of one, with the addition of Victoria to Huatulco and Kelowna to Cancun. Winnipeg adds three destinations this winter with flights to Puerto Plata, Mazatlán and Orlando.
