Wild Dunes Resort Incentivizes the Workforce to Take a Load Off and Make Use of Unused Vacation Days

Benefits of vacations proven to boost employee morale and productivity

Isle Of Palms, S.C. – In 2011, 57 percent of Americans didn’t use all of their vacation time, leaving an average of 11 days unused according to a recent study done by Harris Interactive for JetBlue. The study shows that people usually don’t use their vacation time because they have a heavy workload or they are worried about being laid off during a time of high unemployment.

Wild Dunes Resort in Charleston, SC is trying to change that.

Through the end of 2012, Wild Dunes Resort, recently ranked #3 in Travel + Leisure magazine’s “World’s Best Hotels for Families,” is encouraging U.S. employees to email ( or call (877.221.0901) the Resort with the number of vacation days they have left to use for the year. The Resort will then email individuals back with an exclusive offer for that much-needed vacation*. Individuals could receive up to a $100 resort credit in addition to the Resort’s fall promotion with savings up to 25% off nightly room rates.

Studies show that vacation is critically important to both individuals and to businesses.

When individuals come to work refreshed and rejuvenated, they have a renewed sense of motivation for completing your tasks. It has even been found that vacations keep individuals smart by refreshing their mind for better critical decision making and can even keep them healthy by reducing the chance of coronary disease and heart attacks. With this offer, Wild Dunes Resort hopes to help people temporarily escape the stresses of work and enjoy a relaxing getaway and the wonderful seasonal weather of Charleston, S.C.  

Guests can enjoy a wide variety of activities such as award-winning golf and tennis, cycling and spa services at Wild Dunes Resort. The Resort’s Island Adventures activities program features activities for guests of all ages, including eco-tours, kite sails, kayaking and marsh excavations.

To learn more about the Resort, visit or call 877.221.0901.
