Jamaica Dream Getaway


P8250425 My wonderful husband and I just returned from PARADISE…the Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa  in Jamaica. (We were very lucky to have squeezed in this trip just days before hurricane Gustav touched the island.) We enjoyed 3 days of pure luxury and pampering! Because I am a Certified Sandals Specialist and member of the Association of Bridal Consultants, Sandals upgraded us to the Concierge Level, which was FABULOUS! (Tip: I can also request those upgrades for clients who book their Sandals vacation through me.)

I have to share photos with you because the place was so gorgeous…  Here is what we first saw when we arrived:



P8250449 We were delighted to be escorted across the lush tropical grounds to our private concierge lobby. We checked in while sitting on comfy couches and sipping champagne.  Ahh…Sandals had welcomed us with open arms…no worries maan.





All rooms face the ocean. Here are the beautiful views from our balcony.




And, this is the view from our room entrance.


There were 4 different style pools on the property.  This one was at our building and the one we lounged at the most…


See the round hot tub (above) between the pool and the beach? 

This is me, enjoying that very spot.


There are long stretches of beach at this resort with littles niches where you can hang out and relax.  Here are a few more of my favorite spots…

My water-loving/scuba-diving husband enjoyed the all-inclusive water sports.  Surrounded by crystal clear waters, he went for a sail and a dive…



   …while I waited…


…and visited the resort's Red Lane spa for a hot stone massage and salt scrub!  The spa has a great outdoor lounging area with a hot tub and plunge pool. Here's a shot of the tranquil setting…


The highlight of our trip was a very romantic private candlelight dinner on the beach with our own personal waiter.  This is a MUST DO while staying at a Sandals resort.  Here was our special spot from sunset and into the evening…



What a wonderful romantic time we had…thank you, Sandals.  And, "CHEERS'' to all of you other hopeless romantics out there!

Sandals luxury inclusive resorts are located in Jamaica, Antigua, St. Lucia, Bahamas, and Turks & Caicos.  If you want to take a romantic Caribbean vacation like I did, it's not to late…contact me today to help you start planning your vacation in paradise.
