Sunwing to launch new Kelowna to Varadero flight

TORONTO — Sunwing Vacations will be offering a direct service from Kelowna to the popular Cuban vacation destination of Varadero for the first time this winter.

Departing weekly on Fridays between Dec. 18, 2015 and April 15, 2016, the new flight service will enable residents of Kelowna to experience some of Sunwing’s new and exclusive resorts.

Vacationers travelling with young children are the target market for Memories Varadero Beach Resort. Part of Sunwing’s Family Collection of properties handpicked for their family-friendly amenities, this beachfront resort offers both a complimentary Baby and Kids Club, together with two children’s pools within the extensive pool complex.

Starfish Cuatro Palmas is another option for laidback family beach time. Children are especially well catered to with kids buffet options, supervised activities and early evening entertainment.

Couples and newlyweds may prefer the Royalton Hicacos, part of Sunwing’s Adults Collection, featuring European spa treatments and freshwater pools. Another option could be the latest addition to the Memories Resorts chain, Memories Jibacoa. Designed with families with older children and couples in mind, this 16 years plus resort is located between Havana and the lively centre of Varadero.

A week at Starfish Cuatro Palmas is available from $1,155 plus $356 taxes per person based on two people departing from Kelowna on Dec. 18, 2015 and sharing a double room on an all-inclusive basis. A week at Memories Varadero Beach Resort is available from $1,295 plus $356 taxes, also based on double occupancy, departing from Kelowna on the same date.
