Beaches Resorts Welcomes The Elf on the Shelf® Scout Elf® To the Caribbean This Festive Season

Carols sung with sun-soaked cheer: that’s the sound of Scout Elf® helpers heading South for the winter this year. Beaches Resorts will kick off the magic of the festive season this November with “V.I.E.” perks for everyone’s favourite Christmas-time sidekicks, ready to hang their tiny hats and bask in a Caribbean winter wonderland.

Joining festive forces with The Lumistella Company – the creators of the beloved annual family tradition, The Elf on the Shelf® – Beaches Resorts, the award-winning all-inclusive resort brand for families, is rolling out the red carpet for families and Scout Elf friends alike, at all three Beaches Resorts located in Jamaica and Turks & Caicos.

The festive season is for family memory-making and for many, The Elf on the Shelf brand has become a most loved and anticipated part of their annual traditions,” said Luisana Suegart, Director of Public Relations for Unique Vacations, Inc., an affiliate of the worldwide representative for Beaches Resorts. “It’s why we’re especially grateful to Santa for giving his Scout Elf helpers the permission to join families at Beaches this festive season, and we can’t wait to roll out the red carpet for them with special treats and activities during their stay with us.”

The elf-tastic happenings will kick off from 24th November and will run throughout the month of December. With winding waterslides and unlimited ice cream in store, guests can anticipate Scout Elf stunts galore. Beaches Resorts will be celebrating the festive spirit with the following fun festive activities:

Rolling Out the Candy Cane Carpet with Very Important Scout Elf Treatment

Beaches Resorts’ butlers will put the “treat” in butler treatment as they gear up to pamper Scout Elf friends with special, pint-sized “V.I.E.” (Very Important Scout Elf) surprises. Families staying in butler-level rooms at any of the three Beaches Resorts during the month of December, and travelling with their Scout Elf in tow, will get to enjoy “V.I.E”. - Very Important Scout Elf – treats, such as Moonlight Milk & Cookies, Marshmallow Bubble Baths, Festive Trail Mix, and a Festive Movie Night-In. Butlers will also be on call with Santa-approved gloves and magic elf-moving tongs, should a Scout Elf doze off in the warm Caribbean breeze.

Boasting Santa’s (passport) stamp of approval, his Scout Elf crew will rock around the palm trees at Beaches Resorts during weekly Christmas parties, featuring The Elf on the Shelf characters. Build-your-own cookie bars, arts and crafts stations, Christmas story time sessions, festive karaoke and other soul-stirring happenings will indulge every Scout Elf with festive fun.

All Traditions Start Somewhere

For guests who may have left their Scout Elf at home, or for those who want to experience the magic of The Elf on the Shelf for the very first time, a selection of items including The Elf on the Shelf Official Scout Elf Carrier will be available to purchase from all Beaches Resorts’ gift shops.

Gifting Toys and Spreading Joy: Beaches Resorts’ Little Helpers

Families participating in The Elf on the Shelf festivities can also join Beaches Resorts in spreading the true meaning of the festive season, and supporting the philanthropic work of the not-for-profit Sandals Foundation. Every year, the Sandals Foundation works to provide 15,000 toys to children across the Caribbean and this year, guests can become “Beaches Little Helpers” by volunteering to craft hand-made Christmas cards to be distributed to local children.
