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

Ochi Rios – 2 Resorts

So the resort that starts with the least expensive room options of all the Sandals Resorts happens to be in Jamaica and in Ochi Rios.  The hub for cruise ships, Dunns River Falls, town, activities, so how lucky are you.  Above was my last room at the Sandals where i was in a butler villa, attached to another, where we had a lovely pool to share, I never saw the other couple.

Lovely beach/sand/restaurant options and activities at the base of the resort.

If you were 2 couples travelling together where i stayed last trip would be perfect as you just open up the living/lounge area in-between the 2 bedrooms to enjoy but yet you have your own privacy/space as the bedrooms are at each end.

 

Of course one of the largest signature Sandals Pools would be at this Sandals, its quite the party hardy resort if you want to partake.

You could also have ocean view rooms in the tower next to the ocean and be on that beach very fast every day

On the pic above, those wee huts are massage or private dinner huts!!

Then for the families, or groups or friends (that don’t want to share a bed at Sandals) in Ochi Rios is one of the Beaches Resorts.  Different villages/styles of accommodations to suit your style as always, budget, and size of your group.  My fave is the Greek Village.

View from a Greek Village patio

2 beaches to enjoy, busy side and quiet side

Looking along one of the rows of Greek Village rooms, it’s 3 levels.  Also the Sesame Street characters are all around to add excitement to the kids vacay, and you adults do get to vacay too, they have kids programs from only a few months old up until late teens, so mom/dad, grandparents, can do some adulting, quiet time, fine dining, spa etc.

Huge pool and water slide action for the kids at Beaches and then back to Sandals where there is a big easy, you go into the Rabbit Hole and must know the password!!

Inside the Rabbit Hole, and the big pool at Sandals Ochi at night

Really pretty lobby area at the upper area of Sandals Ochi.  For those staying at Sandals Ochi, you can catch a cab if you want and head over to Beaches to dine/hang out there, something tells me it won’t take long and you will be back to all the options of what/where/how at Sandals Ochi.

Let me get you there.  Everyone deserves a vacation, honeymoon, or lets do your destination wedding at Beaches, where everyone can attend, then the B&G head to one of the quiet/private butler suites at Sandals Ochi where you never have to leave your suite or even hop on a plane and head to a Sandals Resort on another island!!!

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

Grand La Velas Cabo San Lucas

Well, I had been wanting/waiting to get to this resort to check it out, and i have to say, it DID NOT disappoint.

If you are looking for a high end/top of the line all inclusive property, less than 2 hours flying from San Diego, this is it.  From the hotel rooms that oooz quality, to the restaurant choices, yes a Michelin star restaurant is one of your options and included, the awesome cocktails and snacks by the pool, you are never going to want to leave here, and the guests they attended and stayed with you for your destination wedding are going to be talking about this one for a long time.

Champagne and neck massages on arrival, your butler showing you to your room, views to die for, whales swimming by, you won’t want to leave, but we can sure set up some awesome experiences outside of the property.

I was supposed to be at their Puerta Vallarta property last weekend but due to coronavirus did not get to go, can’t wait to head there and compare the experiences.  if its as good as they tell me, then its going to be fabulousssssssss too

Here is a secret, the property next door has the same owner, soooooo, you can have some events there if you want to mix it up a bit, for guests that can not afford or prefer to not stay here they can stay there and you can cover any guests coming in for the event for a fee which is awesome.

Let me help you plan/have your destination wedding here and my travel partner can assist with all the air, hotel accommodations, transfers and any excursions we may want to do, so we make it nice and easy for you.

Till next time

Tuscany Village wedding

Have you ever dreamt about your wedding in a Tuscan village surrounded by family and friends, then your dream can come true.  A ‘hotel’ that is a Tuscan village.  I had the joy of being at/experiencing Il Barro this time last year and it was amazing.  There is a chapel or you can do an outdoor ceremony and lots of lovely spaces for cocktails, dinner/dancing both indoor and outdoor.  In April the Wisteria tunnels around the property are in full bloom and just add to the romance. This property was a village and Ferruccio Ferragamo/family brought it and turned it into a Relais & Chateaux 5* resort, pretty awesome!!

So you don’t want that many to come with you, lol, an intimate group is still going to feel like they own the resort because it is so spread out.  And, if its just the two of you, then we will ensure you feel like you eloped to your dream and we take care of everything.

There are two pool areas, the one above is the modern/food&beverage close location, very nice, the other is down a flight of steps and just seems to be sitting in the Tuscan countryside, very peaceful and quiet.

 

The picture above is the awesome driveway lined by cypress trees, you feel very special when those gates open and in you go

Lots of unique areas, here is the formal garden area of the villa/estate!!

Let me help you make your Tuscan dreams come true and my travel partner will handle all the air/accommodation (guests can stay elsewhere and come in for the wedding) and any transport needed and some wonderful Tuscan excursions, so you and the guests get the full under the Tuscan sun experience.  Yeeeeeessssssssssssss

Till next time

Cabo Secret Gem

Well let me tell you, if you are looking to have anywhere from 60-100 guests, where some are singles, some are friends, some are couples/families, this is the hotel for you to have your destination wedding at.  You can buy it out based on that size and it will be like you are all staying in a wonderful Spanish or even Greek feeling village.  You can do all the pre and post events here and wedding elsewhere, or vice versa, or do it all here.

The details every where you look, imagine your wedding photos here!

The lawn can be where you have your ceremony, or do it on the sand right there and then go to the lawn for cocktails, or around the pool for cocktails and do the dinner on the grass.  Imagine fireworks right on the beach there as your grand finale!!

T

This tiled area is above the pool/restaurant area and you can do dinner/dancing here with the amazing views up and down the coastline, and of course if you are doing a buy out you can use the restaurant area for anything you want also.

If not looking to buy out, aok, a few rooms/guests and we can still have a wonderful destination wedding here, and there is no reason for your guests to stay elsewhere due to budget, when I was there just before xmas 2019 you could have stayed here for under $200 a night!!!

Amazing and fabulous.  Let me help you have your Cabo Destination wedding here, yep, you have to work with me to know what property it is, lol.  Don’t forget my travel partner can arrange everyone’s air/accommodation/transport and all the excursions off property we want to do as a group.  This is an awesome property that stole my heart, right along the corridor so close to Cabo and not so far from San Jose Del Cabo

till next time

Maui Montage Destination Wedding

From the point of entry, to eating breakfast, you always can see that beautiful ocean at Montage Maui.

Lots of great spaces all over the property that can be used for prepost and of course the wedding day event.

Located on one of the top beaches in Maui with views to die for

The lawn above is a given for the ceremony and it’s large enough to do cocktails, dinner/dancing on too!!

But my fave spot is this overwater spot for an intimate dinner/guys hang out on the day, a pre event champagne party, or maybe day after brunch with water that is crystal clear all around.

A beautiful resort with amazing accommodations, but if your guests are not staying here they are still welcome to attend the event for sure.

Let me plan your Destination Wedding to one of the top properties in Maui with you!  My travel partner can handle everyone’s air/hotel/airport transfers/rental cars etc, so together we make it nice and easy for you and your guests.

Let’s do this

till next week

Positano Destination wedding

If these views and the feeling of romance that Positano stirs in everyone who  has been the want to have your wedding there, I can help.  It really is a very special place and one that everyone you invite is going to want to come to, so be careful, and what a great step of point to the rest of the Amalfi Coast or elsewhere in Europe for your guests to visit before coming home, and for your honeymoon!

I can help you plan the wedding and my travel partner can take care of everyone’s air/hotel/transport and the group excursions we will plan, so this will be nice and easy.

 

Till next time
