In October and November 2020, the Catamaran Hotel was the location for a major new primetime series “The Big Body Hotel”. For two months, the Hotel worked in conjunction with The Resort Foundation to convert the hotel into a unique resort that can cater for people who are plus size. Every week we welcomed new plus size guests who enjoyed the facilities and had an amazing prejudice free holiday. The series is now airing on Discovery Plus. All the plus size facilities such as reinforced, enlarged furniture remain, making the Catamaran Hotel one of the only hotels in the world that can cater for the plus size holidaymaker”
Reinforced bed bases
The bed bases in all our beachfront rooms on the ground level and our Superior View Rooms on the first floor have been strengthened. These have been built with solid wooden frames and supporting structures so that our plus-size friends can sleep easy with no worries.
Relax without worries on the beach. All the loungers on the beach and around our pool deck have been specially made for our plus-size friends. No more fragile plastic loungers, made from solid wood they are made to last.
Feeling comfortable in the bathroom is very important. In our beachfront and Superior View rooms we have added rounded shower rods to create more space in the shower with the addition of a hand held shower head. We have reinforced the toilets and added grab bars to help you up and down.
We know that seating in a restaurant can be an issue for some of you that are a little on the large side, too narrow, too fragile. We have you covered at the Captain's Quarters with our large solid wooden chairs.
The Catamaran Hotel is proud to have partnered on this project with The Resort Foundation. The Resort Foundation offers educational programs and positive body image support for plus-sized persons living in a society that judges one by body type and size.
