UK travel agent Globehunters has announced a flash sale on holidays at the St James's Club Resort in Antigua, which was chosen as one of the X Factor Judge's Houses.
To celebrate its involvement in the hugely popular ITV show, for a limited time only customers can save £140 per person on holiday packages at the Antigua resort.
The six hopefuls from the ‘girls’ category performed live in front of mentor Nicole Scherzinger and guest judge for the show, Mary J Blige. From the original six, Abi Alton, Tamera Foster and Hannah Barrett were dramatically chosen to progress to the next round.
The contestants performed their songs on the St James's Club Resort’s jetty – a popular backdrop for weddings at the resort which is located on the south east coast of the Caribbean island. The 100 acre resort provides a range of accommodation including guest rooms, suites and villas, spread over the hillside overlooking Mamora Bay. It also offers a range of water sports to keep guests entertained including snorkelling and diving, as well as golf and tennis.
During filming for X Factor in late September, Nicole Scherzinger was spotted partying at a local carnival in the Antiguan town of Shirley Heights, a short drive from the St James's Club Resort in the south of the Antigua. Indeed, Antigua is fast becoming a well-known celebrity retreat with A-list stars like Giorgio Armani, Oprah Winfrey and Pierce Brosnan recommending the island in recent years.
Globehunters will be offering the flash sale until Tuesday 15th October 2013. Guests can spend five nights at the St James's Club Resort from £1,089 each, with savings of £140 per person. Seven and 14-night packages are also available and included in this limited time offer. Flights are from London Heathrow with Virgin Atlantic.
