Sandals Montego Bay Jamaica

Well today seems like a great day to post about this property, as one of my couples just arrived there today for their babymoon and will get to enjoy their swim out room and this resort that is like new, as well as the Royal Caribbean just down the road.  Above is the lobby.  When i first visited this resort in 2005 this was the entertainment room and the ceiling was like a puffy circus tent and it was, well, kind of cheesy!!  This was the original Sandals Resort and it was definitely tired.  Since then i came back in 2016/17 and got to see the change starting and in 18/19 to see it now complete. The entertainment room is now the lobby and the first thing you see when you walk in is the beautiful blue ocean through the other side and it just draws you in.  The resort is now hip/cool and a great spot to hang/vacay and there are fun things to do in Montego Bay area if you want to leave the resort!

this area is right through that lobby door, a great seating area to have a mocktail or cocktail and look at that ocean and enjoy the sea breeze.

this was my room on my last stay and the view looking down the path back towards the lobby/restaurant/main action area.

One of the swim out butler rooms with ocean view, and there is now a new block with swim out rooms with garden surrounds, a great use of a back block of rooms that will now make them very wanted!!

This is a bar surrounded by a pool with a mini lazy river, very relaxing with that cocktail in hand, yes i did!!

And guess what, right now all rooms at Montego Bay get a private transfer in a luxury vehicle, no idea for how long, but for new bookings, so call/email/text/dm, whatever you need to do, let’s get you there, most of the world is closed to American’s now and for who knows how long, so if you are looking to vacay, honeymoon or even if you wedding plans were ruined due to Covid, lets get the two of you there or a small or large group of you and do the wedding right here!!

Till next time

Sandals Bahamas

I have been to the Bahamas around 10 times, and spent two of those trips right here at Sandals, minutes from downtown Nassau.  Its a lovely property with a private island, where i spend most of my time, reading/hanging out/relaxing/swimming/massaging!

Can you see why i like the private island, the pics above from the boat to here are all there, no one in sight, so calm

This was the view from my last room, above and below, looking at the pool for the action and then pivot to the right and it was all ocean looking over to the private island

On my last trip i did a duo, spent some time in Nassau and then flew to Exuma and spent time at the Sandals there, so relaxing and the water is amazing.  If you are a golfer, this is a bucket list trip as you are playing right along the ocean so spectacular views while playing and of course a Jack Nicolas course

It was a bit stormy while there but the water was still beautiful blue

Meanwhile back in Nassau…. above and below

With certain butler rooms at Sandals Nassau/Royal, you get picked up at the airport and taken back in a Bentley or fancy Mercedes, that’s the way to arrive in style and not be too sad about leaving, right!

Let me get you there

Till next time

Southcoast Sandals/Jamaica

I first visited this resort right as it was opening, and loved it.  Quiet/spread out, all rooms have a view of the water!!  Had not been back, so it was long overdue.

The first overwater bar Sandals had and a great spot to have a drink it was!!  And one of the signature large Sandals pools, it was nearly empty every time i enjoyed it.

I was there as they were breaking ground for the overwaters, very exciting. If you are looking for calm/relaxing and more beach than you could use, this is the resort for you!

Till next time

Sandals Grenada

This is the newest addition to the Sandals Family.  I had missed a couple of fam trips but got to go with my husband end of 2018 and was really pleased I got to experience a vacation there with him, not working, lol.  this was the view from our 2 level suite, looking down on the pool from the swim out rooms, across the resort to that beautiful caribbean.

We actually left the resort (sometimes we don’t on our trips) and the view above is the downtown area, we went on a snorkelling trip to see the famous circle of friends an underwater sculpture, very cool.

 

The pic above is one of the suites with their own infinity pool and awesome views.  i have had couples honeymoon right here in these and they raved about it.

As always the grounds/flowers are beautiful to walk around/enjoy

the pic above and below is one of the rondoval suites with their own jacuzzi and plunge pool, very popular, and cool

Lots of places to sit, relax and just enjoy, around this really intimate resort

This is what you normally see pics of from this resort, the seating area inside the pool where you don’t get wet to be there/enjoy

 

Let’s think Destination wedding or Vow Renewal, should we??

A Butch’s chophouse can be found here (Barbados is great because you can do the chophouse and steakhouse there), and the atmosphere and food is … yuuuum

Always an English Pub at each resort, great for just hanging out

My fave cocktail, banana and chocolate and cream, yeahhhhhhhhhh

Ok, realising it’s now 7 months since i have travelled to the Caribbean due to Coronavirus, I am realising its time to go back, soon Lisa, soon

Till next time

Sandals family Resorts – Beaches Resorts

So if you love everything that a Sandals Resorts offers, the range of room types, service options including butlers, the quality, all the food and beverages being included, resort entertainment and activities included, airport transfers included, but you now have kids, or you are a group of friends, guys or girls, or both, and don’t want to share a bed (yes Sandals only does one bed per room, no rollaways lol!!) or want to do a multi family trip and a Sandals Resort isn’t going to work, then a Beaches Resort will work for you, they offer all the above and more because you still want adult time right??? so the options for kids/all age groups to do to keep them busy is awesome.

And yes, they will come to the bedroom and say goodnight to the wee ones!!

Let me get you there!!!!  Beaches Resorts are located on the islands of Turks & Caicos (right on Grace Beach, its gorgeous), and two in Jamaica, Negril where again the beach is lovely/best beach in Jamaica, its very quiet/relaxing and you have access to do other fun things on that side of the island, Ricks place is well worth the boat or cab ride and some rum drinks with fun music to listen or dance to while you watch silly peeps jumping off the cliffs, lol, and Ocho Rios the port are of Jamaica, so more busy/things to see/do outside of the resort, this resort is made up of 5 villages, the Greek Village is my fave!!

You can also incorporate a renewal of vows if you want, or have your friends/family come to celebrate your destination wedding with you!!!

Till next time

Ritz Laguna Intimate wedding

A lovely intimate wedding at the Ritz Carlton Laguna that Kim orchestrated on the day.  I was in New Zealand at my nephews wedding.  I had helped Phil pull the wedding together from start to finish, they had an intimate group and no dancing was needed so using the Private Dining Room there was perfect for the dinner after the wedding.

Thanks to Frank Salas for the pics and EBD Floral for doing a beautiful job as always, and of course to the ladies & gentlemen at our fave hotel, for always helping us create seamless events. xoxox

Till next time

Bequia destination wedding

You probably have not heard of Bequia, it’s one of the islands not easy to get to in the Caribbean which for some that makes it even more special.  It is part of the St Vincent and the Grenadines group and before a yacht charter we did from there (which is the only way to see these islands as big cruise ships can not get in close to the islands and for most of the islands like Mustique with only 2 cabs, the infrastructure of the islands could not handle thousands of people getting off a boat and taking over their island for a few hours.  So these island are still very slow/natural and yes, a lot of celebrities have homes on some of these islands, not suprising!!

So anyway, I found this cool hotel, has rooms down by the water, a lovely restaurant that opens to the water view and a huge ‘house style’ building up the hill (they drive you up and back” with views to die for and multi rooms, so for an intimate destination wedding this would be perfect, you could take over the whole resort, do the ceremony and reception wherever you want, up the top with the views or close to the water, and for pre and post wedding activities, we can hire a yacht for sunset cruises, go to neighbouring islands on a day trip and after the wedding you can head off to one of the islands for your honeymoon and your guests can too or charter a yacht or head back to Barbados (best way to get to/from these islands) and stay there or head to more known islands (ie I can help with Sandals all inclusive resorts) with as much to do or as little as that want, based on how they like to vacation.

Not giving the name of the resort, you have to book me to do your wedding with you there, lol.

Till next time

We do intimate weddings too!

IMG_5945

You like what we do, would like some great assistance to make your wedding better/easier on the day but because your wedding is not going to be at a four or five star hotel or it’s smaller so you think we are not available to you, not so!!  If I am available, I would love to help, and I also have my lovely Teri and Nicole who are able to oversee your celebration on the day, both have been doing weddings for my couples for years, so you are in great hands.

This is an intimate wedding we did recently.

Till next time
