Back in April (has it already been over 7 months!?) I was hosted by Sandals Resorts in Jamaica for a little getaway to see what a wedding or honeymoon in Jamaica could be like. To be honest, I had never considered Sandals Resort for a vacation and had never been to Jamaica either. I was beyond pleasantly surprised with how wonderful it was, and have been wanting to take my little family back (to the Beaches version – kiddos allowed!) ever since. It was the most luxurious and pampered I have ever felt. So I wanted to share a bit of my trip with you since many of you are probably planning your honeymoons and destination weddings right now. I highly recommend the experience.
Can’t you just picture having a destination wedding here? So gorgeous.
This was my private butler suite. One side was my living quarters with a really lovely bedroom and bathroom bigger than my living room at home, and the other side was a living room and mini-kitchen. Oh, and the pool and jacuzzi was in between. All for little old me!
We took a really leisurely river rafting excursion (that’s Karr, our boat captain) and all had mini-mock weddings to see what Sandals had to offer in terms of hosting your wedding. They all turned out beautifully.
The thing I loved most about Sandals was my butler suite and amazing butlers! There were always fun little surprises waiting for me, like a hot drawn bath (how many times have you stayed somewhere with an amazing tub and you never once used it? Happens to me all the time. But when the bath is waiting for you, it is hard to turn down!) and cute little towel animals. And when the food, drinks, and fun is all-inclusive you can just relax and enjoy every second of your honeymoon without thinking about how much you’re spending once you’re there. Jamaica’s gorgeous beaches and it’s relaxed way of life make for one fabulous vacation. I could not have asked for more (except that my husband wasn’t with me – next time!)
Are you thinking of an all-inclusive like Sandals or a Jamaican destination for your wedding or honeymoon? This would be the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or even a girls’ trip!
