Spice Island Beach Resort, an all-inclusive hotel in Grenada, recently announced that it has increased its travel agent commission to 15 percent on all reservations booked directly with the property or through the GDS system.
Other Caribbean all-inclusive resorts to recently bump agents’ commission include Warwick Paradise Island—Bahamas in Nassau and Curtain Bluff in Antigua. Spice Island Beach Resort was previously offering agents a 12 percent commission.
In November, the adults-only, all-inclusive Warwick Paradise Island—Bahamas increased its travel agent commission structure offered on bookings made through the resort’s website, using their GDS or by calling the resort direct.
Warwick Paradise Island—Bahamas increased commission on its “Best Flexible Rate,” or rack rate, to 20 percent, which is up from 10 percent. Agents booking the resort’s special promotional and seasonal packages will receive 15 percent commission, also up from 10 percent.
Meanwhile, Curtain Bluff in Antigua is in its second year of offering a 15 percent commission. The resort bumped agent’s commission from 10 percent in October of last year following a renovation of the resort.
Spice Island Beach Resort tends to appeal to affluent travelers as it includes high-end, luxury beachfront and private pool suites, spa treatments incorporating local spices and a culinary program featuring seven-course dinners.
All suites are air-conditioned and come with such amenities as a large whirlpool, LCD flat panel televisions with cable, Italian Frette bathrobes and linens, Molton Brown bath and body amenities and a mini-bar. Several suites feature a private pool.
Nightly rates range from $1,145 – $2,155 per room, per night, based on two people sharing one suite from now until Dec. 15.
