“America and our contestants love to see travel as one of the prizes on the Wheel of Fortune. The chance to win a trip to an exotic location is everyone’s fantasy. When you add the fact that the resorts featured in the Caribbean Escapes program are all upscale resorts and the finest in the Caribbean, it makes the prize even more exciting”: commented Antonio Tan Llenado of Promotional Consideration, Inc. who arranged for the prizes to be awarded through the Wheel of Fortune. “We are thrilled to work with The Escapes Group to provide these wonderful vacation packages to these high end resorts that are a part of Caribbean Escapes.”
The Wheel of Fortune was created by Merv Griffin and first aired in 1975 on NBC. The current version is syndicated by King World. Since 1984, the Wheel of Fortune has had the highest Nielsen Rating of any syndicated program. It is the longest-running syndicated game show in American television history, and the second-longest in either network or syndication (behind the current version of The Price is right, which began airing in 1972).
“Caribbean Escapes is proud of our association with the Wheel of Fortune. It is an extremely successful program seen around the world. By showcasing the upscale resorts that are a part of Caribbean Escapes through the Wheel of Fortune, it allows us to share these high end travel options with new viewers and potential travelers”: commented Glenn Harris, Principal and Founder of The Escapes Group which developed Caribbean Escapes.
Caribbean Escapes features 120 of the Caribbean’s most upscale resorts in 25 destinations. The program’s four-plus and five-star resort properties are affiliated with Relais & Chateaux, Preferred Hotels and Resorts, Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and the Leading Hotels of the World. The properties are frequented by jetsetters from around the world and include Raffles Canouan, Guanahani in St. Barth, One and Only Paradise Island, Ritz Carlton Rosehall Jamaica, Four Season Nevis, Sandy Lane Barbados, Peter Island, La Samana, Cap Juluca Anguilla, and others of this caliber. Caribbean Escapes works with over 90 percent of the Caribbean’s top resorts and presents them to the well-to-do traveler through a chic coffee table publication, high definition luxury travel television series ( appearing on iNDemand and other networks), and an interactive website.
Caribbean Escapes this week also announced the launch of their “new and improved” travel website www.CaribbeanEscapes.com. The website features twenty five Caribbean destinations and the luxury resorts in the program. Visitors to the site can learn about the destinations and their fine resorts as well as about the region’s golf, spa, adventure, and family travel options. The website was redesigned by FNScom.com of Miami. On the website, visitors will be able to read editorial on each resort and destination from the Caribbean Escapes Luxury Travel Coffee Table book, watch video clips from the television series, and even see virtual maps of the destinations and resorts. Once they’ve completed their research and learning on line, they can directly book their air inclusive vacation.
Harris added: “We feel that the Caribbean is one of the most beautiful destinations in the world. We also know that some of the finest resorts are in the Caribbean. We developed our coffee table book, television series, and now the website to properly showcase the region and its fabulous resorts. Our association with the Wheel of Fortune allows us to further get the word out about these resources and vacation options available to the affluent traveler.”
