Jalousie Hilton creates 'Diving Divas' package

SOUFRIERE, St. Lucia -- The Jalousie Hilton Resort and Spa here is marketing a diving package exclusively for its female guests. Dubbed Diving Divas, the five-night package costs from $1,185 per person, double, from Jan. 1 to Dec. 17.

It includes accommodations in a villa with a private plunge pool, six dives with the resort's PADI Dive Center, one massage at the resort's beachside spa, and breakfasts and dinners daily.

Approximately 40% of the divers who stay at the Jalousie Hilton are women, according to general manager Ali Khan. "We created this package to offer them a mix of adventure and luxury," Khan said.

The Jalousie Hilton is close to many of St. Lucia's better dive sites. Jalousie's dive center offers 14 dive sites for exploration, including the wreck of the Lesleen M; Coral Gardens at the base of the Gros Piton volcano, and Superman's Flight, a drift dive along a wall at the base of the Petit Piton volcano.
