The  commercial which featured celebrity Illusionist and Musha Cay Island owner David Copperfield,  Bahamian supermodel Shakara Ledard, school children on the island of Exuma and Bahamian National Basketball Association (NBA) star Rick Fox captured the beauty and pristine of the Bahamas as its narrator proclaimed..

Its been said that beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Well behold. Behold, water so blue it seems to merge with the sky above.  Behold, sand so soft it’s like every step is a walk among the clouds. Behold, natural beauty that soars above the sea and plunges far below. Behold, smile so wide they seem to stretch from the top of Little Abaco to the base of Great Inagua and across the face of an entire nation. Behold the islands of the Bahamas ”

 According to the Ministry of Tourism the 60 seconds commercial spot which shot on locations in Exuma and aired in the Florida market was designed to promote the entire Bahamas.

You can see the Superbowl commercial below and experience the incredible beauty of the Bahamas, its people through the young students, and a view from out of this world as the Bahamas is the most photographed place from outer space.

Sandals offers Katie Price refund after Bahamas Wedding

 

Sandals Resorts has offered a refund to Katie Price after she publicly accused the resort for almost ruining her wedding in the Bahamas.  However, Sandals says the refund is

on condition she does not choose our resorts for any future weddings or stays.”

The Bahamas wedding which was Katie’s third nuptial was held at the luxurious Sandals Royal Bahamian Resort and Spa on Cable Beach, which she described as being

more like a smelly old flip-flop.”

Katie’s Sandals Bahamas wedding

Details and pictures of the wedding in the Bahamas were carried exclusively by The Sun, a daily national tabloid newspaper published in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

In the article “Katie Price: My honeymoon from hell” by Sharon Hendry and published on January 25, 2013, Katie said of her Sandals Bahamas wedding:-

that while her wedding pictures showed a beach “if you looked the other way there were ugly skyscrapers”  that the sunbeds used by the resort were plastic, their wedding tent “looked like it came out of B&Q” and the atmosphere at the resort was “more 18-30” than royal.

  Katie Price Sandals wedding in the Bahamas

Sandals said it was “disappointed Ms Price was not happy with her stay” and added “As a gesture of goodwill we are willing to offer her a refund on condition she does not choose our resorts for any future weddings or stays.”
 
A statement from the resort said that
Without an international profile, the resort team were oblivious of Ms. Price’s fame and welcomed her with the award-winning service given to all its guests. Once at the resort Ms. Price did identify herself to her dedicated Wedding Manager and explained her profile in the UK. The team were thoroughly understanding and accommodating of Ms. Price’s request for privacy, offering use of the resort’s private offshore island, Sandals Cay, for her wedding ceremony and the duration of her stay. However, Ms. Price declined this offer, and against the Sandals team’s advice opted instead to hold the ceremony on the public beach where she was photographed by paparazzi.”
