Hurricane Policy for Sunrise Beach Villas, Bahamas

Sunday, 29 May, 2011

p>The Bahamas have historically been able to avoid direct hits from major hurricanes due to the location of our island, but in order to be prepared in case of an emergency, we would like you as our guests to know some of the measures we have put in place to ensure you have the safest and most relaxing worry free Bahamian vacation possible:

1.  Sunrise Beach Villas is intimately involved with the Bahamian Hotel Association, which is the main point of dissemination of the most up to date information regarding severe weather.  If any alerts are issued, we will allow all of our current and future guests know about potential weather concerns with plenty of time.

2.  Sunrise Beach Villas has adopted the hurricane cancellation policy of the BHA:

From www.bhahotels.com:

BHA maintains a Hurricane Cancellation Policy, which has been in place for a number of years. The policy considers travellers who would either need to postpone or cancel their vacation in The Bahamas.

The agreed policy gives the vacationer a choice of using deposits or payments toward a future stay at the same property in The Bahamas, or in the event that the vacationer cannot travel to The Bahamas at all, it provides the vacationer with a full refund.

So you can rest assured in knowing that your vacation is protected and fully refundable in the event that travel is interrupted or postponed due to weather.

This season in the Bahamas is one of the best times to visit the islands because the weather is absolutely perfect, the island is quieter than at peak tourist times, and fresh local food is in full swing.  If you have any questions at all regarding your future travel with us during this time of year, please don’t hesitate to call!

We look forward to seeing you on your next visit to Paradise Island in the Bahamas.
