VIRGINIA, United States, Thursday August 2, 2018 – Sharing a vision for travel, Hilton Caribbean has announced a partnership with luxury eyewear brand Sicky Eyewear for a curated series of itineraries for guests to explore the Caribbean.
Under the programme entitled ‘Through the Local Lens’, custom guides are tailored for more than 10 destinations, including Nassau, Curacao, Aruba and Barbados.
Developed by Sicky, the itineraries highlight top restaurants and bars, activities, cultural landmarks and best-kept secrets– from swimming with stingrays in Nassau to exploring Queen’s Park Savannah, the largest open space in the Port of Spain.
For example, British Colonial Hilton Nassau’s guide features the Lost Blue Hole, a dive site renowned by scuba enthusiasts from around the world with a 100-foot diameter and 200 feet deep.
Each property has assigned an Experience Ambassador to act as an on-the-ground insider to help facilitate these recommendations.
“Fueling my creativity, I first began to explore the world through the lens of a camera which then served as a vehicle for my passion to travel,” said John Hildebrand, founder of Sicky Eyewear.
“My love for photography and travel served as the inspiration for this programme and I look forward to working with Hilton on our shared vision to create unforgettable experiences for guests.”
Rakel Dean, experience ambassador, British Colonial Hilton Nassau, said that “just as Sicky sets out to create a personalized and distinctive eyewear design, our team strives to provide guests with specially curated experiences that reflect the destination’s culture and allow them to live like true islanders”.
“We look forward to helping our guests experience their ultimate travel journey and document their adventures ‘through the local lens.’”
To celebrate the collaboration, travelers can lounge poolside in Sicky sunglasses while taking advantage of Hilton Caribbean’s Another Day in Paradise offer, which allows guests to stay three nights and get the fourth night free at participating properties.
Before jet-setting to the islands, travelers who book a stay at a Hilton Caribbean property also receive a 20 per cent discount on more than 45 Sicky sunglass designs.
