The vacation package includes seven luxurious nights of ‘Glamping’, VIP Transfer via Anegada Express Ferry, Beachfront Palapa Retreat, Arrival Champagne in room, breakfast for two daily, one dinner for two at The Lobster Trap and two spa treatments by Touch of the Caribbean.

Further Ms Brathwaite stated that she is excited for that lucky person who will win the bid for this vacation of a lifetime.
