Kendra who was on property to pose for a photo shoot for the Cabana Life’s Resort 2012 & Spring 2013 Collections. Cabana Life, which features stylish, sun-protective clothing and swimwear with 50+ UV protection, chose Surfcomber for the shoot for its celebrity packed beach and pool deck, and the hotel’s notoriety as the it place to enjoy South Beach by day.
After the shoot, Holliday mixed and mingled with dozens of fans and hotel guests during a hosted evening wine hour, where she posed for pictures with guests, including Surfcomber’s specially-outfitted, resident herd of life-sized cows and sheep.
“What better place to showcase Cabana Life’s line of stylish, sun-protective clothing and swimwear, than at Surfcomber – the only hotel in South Beach that celebrates the daylife,” said Jeff Peterson, director of Sales and Marketing for Surfcomber Miami, South Beach. “We love bringing fun, interactive experiences to our guests that make them feel connected and like part of the family, and this experience did just that, while also celebrating all the sun-inspired activities that we offer.”
“Surfcomber provided the perfect setting for the Cabana Life photo shoot,” said Cabana Life founder and fashionista Melissa Marks Papock. “We love the hotel’s chic, yet active daylife set against the natural beauty of the ocean and whimsical design elements sprinkled throughout the property – together they made for a perfect backdrop to Cabana Life’s vibrant new collection.”
