In need of a winter getaway but feel a little self conscious about your image? Recently, a resort for plus-size guests opened on the Eleuthera Island in the Bahamas. Its purpose, of course: to make people feel amazing about their bodies.
The Resort is a safe haven for plus-size individuals to be able to just be themselves without fear of outside judgment.
The idea of The Resort came about when the owner, James King,was working at a resort in Grenada. “A young woman sat down in one of the loungers, and she went right through it, and everybody on the beach was laughing. The next day I was in my office, and I hear screaming and yelling, and she was having a fit because the owner’s policy was that she was charged $150 for destruction of hotel property. And I thought that it was insane,” King explains to PEOPLE.
They have almost five miles of private beach and fresh water pool. The Resort rate includes meals and airport transfers for a fee of $10,600 with beverages and gratuities being on the honor system. There aren’t any deals for packaging yet but keep an eye out on the Facebook page because you may never know!
