Watch: Magdalena launches first all-inclusive independence party

Tobago is the place to be this independence weekend. Why? Magdalena Grand, Tobago’s premiere vacation spot is hosting their very first Independence Day all-inclusive party on Saturday, August 31.

Vinod Bajaj, general manager said the idea came from guests staying at the hotel during Independence Day 2018, “Some of the guests came to us during the Independence day last year… why don’t we have an event here… so we thought about it, we had a discussion with the team and we thought it was a great idea”, he said.

Local soca star Benjai is the main performer for the event at the Tavaco Lounge that includes, premium bars and light refreshments. Music by TRACKMASTAZ ENTERTAINMENT and other popular DJs.

Bajaj also indicated that the traditional fireworks of Independence Day will not be left out. And to add to this, parents who are guests at the hotel would be able to attend and really enjoy the party because arrangements have been made to have a slumber party for the kids.

Based on the success of this year’s event, Bajaj is anticipating a repeat in 2020.   “We believe we should have three to four all-inclusive events in Magdalena to support the local Tobago community as well as Trinidad”.

He was also pleased that the sea bridge has normalized and this has enabled a higher occupancy rate from the Trinidad market. This has also allowed Magdalena to offer all-inclusive packages from September 1 to December 31 with a 2-night package costing TT$2400 per night and TT$2350 per night for packages 3 or more nights.

Tickets for the all-inclusive are available at Magdalena Grand, patrons can call 660 8500 or email:
