“We are optimistic that the hotel will be able to open during the summer – the exact date is still TBD but even if the beach is closed, the hotel, for now, is planning to start. With more than 25,000 square feet of event space and a stunning swimming pool area, they will be able to accommodate guests even if beach access is not possible, “a hotel spokesman said.
Also fueling optimism is a survey that shows Americans are eyeing a little to get out of lockouts and travel, even if it’s only nationally.
A recent survey, sponsored by Overseas Leisure Group, a luxury travel operator in 34 countries around the world, saw 72 percent of 2,000 travelers investigated in the US have made plans for their next vacation.

Carefree bookings allow consumers to make travel plans without the need for a deposit and without cancellation fees if the itinerary changes.
If payment is not made 7 days prior to arrival to guarantee the reservation, the booking will be canceled without penalty to the client at all. The attached requirements for this Carefree Bookings initiative apply for travel between 1 June and 31 October 2020.
“Hospitality professionals and travel advisors alike need initiative to start the reset process and get the trip back to people’s schedules, said Carefree CEO Felix Brambilla. Because our survey shows that holidays are on their minds, we just made a booster. Carefree Bookings is an extraordinary initiative that brings together thousands of providers behind the most flexible ordering process ever. ”
The Carefree Booking Program is now available through travel agents and advisors in the US, Europe and Brazil. Travel agents can make Carefree bookings in real time on the OverseasXpress platform at ox.live.
