Sandals Resorts Institute of Romance, a newly launched trend-house created to analyze and spot the latest global news in modern love, relationships, and intimacy, found that more than half of American women (55%) wish their relationships mirrored those of the couples from their most beloved romance novels, with 54% wanting more spontaneous romantic gestures, and 34% craving a more satisfying sex life.
With that in mind, for those who love nothing more than a beach read, Sandals Resorts has partnered with HarperCollins Publishers and New York Times best-selling author Tessa Bailey to give one lucky couple a romance novel-inspired vacation of dreams. What’s better than reading a good romance book? Reading a good romance book on vacation.
Through the aptly named #BookBae Getaway sweepstakes, bookworms can enter for the chance to win a four day, three night stay in a Love Nest Butler Suite® at one of 15 Sandals Resorts and a 30-minute virtual experience with Bailey to learn first-hand how to bring the romance from “page to reality” before their trip.
Also included in the prize is all-inclusive food and drinks, butler service, PADI certified scuba diving, airport transfers, and a visit to the Sandals Resorts airport arrival lounge if you’re vacationing in Jamaica or Saint Lucia. Taxes, tips, and gratuities are covered, but winners are responsible for their own airfare. Entries close on Apr. 15, with winners being contacted shortly after.
Sandals Resorts is also turning up the heat for all of its guests with a sizzling “Romance Library” that will help spread the love during your next vacation. Curated by the experts at Avon Books, guests can borrow a range of romance books throughout the duration of their stay. Starting at Sandals Grenada, the initial library will include a selection from Tessa Bailey, including #booktok favorites “It Happened One Summer” and “Hook, Line, and Sinker“, as well as super hot reads from authors Julia Quinn, Talia Hibbert, Olivia Dade and more.
