"So Good to See You, Connecticut" — A Newly Launched TV Advertising Campaign Showcasing CT's Staycation Offerings

As Connecticut tourism businesses continue to safely reopen and welcome back guests, a new television advertising campaign from the Connecticut Office of Tourism is reminding state residents that there is so much to see, discover and rediscover without traveling far from home.

Launched in July, the six 30-second TV spots feature 33 different tourism businesses and recreational experiences across the state. The spots highlight activities that residents can safely enjoy this summer and fall, from water tubing in Bantam and hot air ballooning in Portland to appreciating art in New Britain and beer tasting in Woodstock. Other featured activities include horseback riding, apple picking, ziplining, kayaking, hiking, biking and go-kart racing.

Watch the spots here:
The spots will air on Connecticut’s major broadcast and cable television networks through Labor Day.

“Connecticut’s many leisure and hospitality-related businesses, small and large, are central to our state’s quality of life and to its economy,” said Randy Fiveash, director, Connecticut Office of Tourism. “While prioritizing safety during reopening, these businesses have helped bring jobs back to the economy and provided Connecticut residents with opportunities to safely enjoy our state and make new memories.”

Three of the six spots showcase businesses or experiences found in a particular geographical area of Connecticut—Western, Central and Eastern—and were supported by the Regional Tourism Districts.

“We hope these spots will inspire Connecticut residents to make the most of their staycations and encourage them to explore new places, try different activities and visit reopened businesses in every corner of the state,” said Fiveash.

The TV spots, which will also stream online in New York, Massachusetts and Rhode Island, are part of the state’s recently launched $1.2 million tourism marketing campaign.

The campaign, themed “So Good to See You, Connecticut,” is aimed at reinvigorating revenues for the thousands of tourism businesses impacted by COVID-19-related temporary closures. Additional campaign elements, including three safety-focused videos and a social media series, were rolled out earlier this summer. Residents and visitors are encouraged to participate in the campaign by tagging Connecticut travel photos with #GoodtoCT for a chance to be featured on social media.

According to Sandals Resorts International’s Founder and Chairman, the Hon. Gordon “Butch” Stewart, “investing in St. Vincent and its captivating people, was not only compelling, but a natural next step for continued expansion within the Eastern Caribbean. Beginning with our first entry in Saint Lucia many years ago and more recently Grenada and Barbados, we are champions of growth for the Eastern Caribbean, and it has remained at the forefront of our expansion strategy,” said Stewart. “Expanding into a brand-new destination ushers in the tremendous opportunity for new and existing team members to experience a whole new way of life and professional growth path. The minute our customers land in St. Vincent, they will be enchanted with its magnificence. The resort hugs the Caribbean Sea and is nestled within a lush mountain range and neighboring rainforest. Best of all, it’s only a short drive from the newly constructed Argyle International Airport.”

The agreement, which has been in the works for nearly a year, will bring Beaches Resorts to the archipelago chain known as the ‘Jewels of the Caribbean.’ “The resort will undergo extensive reimagination and renovations,” stated Adam Stewart, Deputy Chairman of Sandals Resorts International. “Each time we expand, we bring with us the full potential of our 40 years in hospitality with the creation of new jobs and skillsets through our Corporate University, the on-the-ground work of our Sandals Foundation, the dedicated airlift and comprehensive global marketing campaigns that always follow. As we look to the future, this growth stands for tremendous possibility.”

The company’s announcement is not only a signal of what is to come, but a reminder to the global travel and tourism sector that the future of Caribbean tourism is bright. With nearly 40 years of success within the all-inclusive industry, Sandals Resorts International will continue to innovate and provide the 5-Star Luxury Included® vacation experience everyone has come to love.

The Iconic Resort on St. Barth will Reveal a Comprehensive Refurbishment Under the Rosewood Flag in Spring 2021

Rosewood Hotels & Resorts® has been appointed to manage St. Barth’s renowned retreat, Le Guanahani, which is set to reopen in Spring 2021 following an extensive restoration of the fabled property. Closed since 2017 due to the effects of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the property will reopen as Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth with a property-wide rebuild and refurbishment that preserves the unique spirit of the resort and perfectly embodies Rosewood’s A Sense of Place® philosophy, wherein the local sensibilities of the destination inspire the resort’s many offerings. Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will mark the growing ultra-luxury brand’s third property in the Caribbean and first in the French West Indies.

Ideally situated over eighteen lush and secluded acres on a private peninsula overlooking two stunning beaches, Marigot Bay and Grand Cul-de-Sac, Le Guanahani originally opened in 1986 and quickly established itself as one of the most iconic resorts in the world celebrated by both families and couples for its incredible beaches and relaxed style that complements St. Barth’s chic ambience. With stunning architecture by David M. Schwarz Architects and unique interior design by Luis Pons Design Lab, the new Rosewood Le Guanahani St. Barth will evoke the rich and authentic French Caribbean heritage of the island with its signature colorful style featuring vibrant design hues of turquoise inspired by the Caribbean water, yellow reflecting the tropical sun and lavender as a nod to the South of France.

“A legendary resort cherished for its rich offerings, memorable service and captivating landscape, Le Guanahani is a jewel within the Caribbean and an idyllic destination for Rosewood’s affluential explorers,” said Sonia Cheng, chief executive officer of Rosewood Hotel Group. “We are honored to steward Rosewood Le Guanahani as it sets a new standard of luxury on St. Barth and around the world.”
