TURTLES IN PARADISE
FOR KIDS WITH A FASCINATION FOR TURTLES AND PARENTS THAT love the lavish, there may be no better place to be than Jumby Bay Island – the former Rosewood property just announced and renamed as Oetker Collection’s newest resort destination – this autumn. The private island in Antigua is home to the Jumby Bay Hawksbill Project, the world’s longest-running privately funded hawksbill sea turtle research programme – and a new experience package intends to immerse guests in all things turtle. Available through nesting season (until mid-November), the Early Nester Hawksbill Turtle Experience will suit ecominded families, with a four night stay for two adults plus two children under 12) offering private excursions with a turtle expert to see nesting turtles and possible hatchlings while learning how to protect their environments; nightly turtle watches to see eggs being laid; a private snorkelling trip that offers insight on the coral reefs that protect the creatures; and a private family dinner on the beach. A mix of education and luxury well worth diving into.
