Shuttle Info for your to & From trip from Carambola to the Fred:

 

We will have shuttles that go to and from the Fred at all times (there will be a posted schedule). The ride is beautiful, and in the day, we’ll have open air “Safari’s”  set up for our guests. You’ll get to enjoy the beautiful island views while heading over to some serious FUNK. At the Fred, Carambola guests will have the Fred spa as their own space. You’ll be able to store your backpack, have your own bathroom and shower and a home away from home space. We have everything you need at the Fred, so you don’t have to worry about going back and forth! I mean, let’s be honest here, we’re going to be in the pool, in the ocean or watching music (or all 3) so no need to bring much with you.
