Sandals and Beaches Weddings

No comments
When I think of summer, I think of weddings.  Are you newly engaged or planning to be engaged in the near future?  Have you ever considered a destination wedding?  Did you know that Sandals and Beaches is a leader in destination weddings?  They both have customizable weddings, that are inspired by love and created by you.  With their talented wedding staff at any of the Beaches or Sandals location they will help you create the wedding of your dreams.  They even offer a free Tropical Wedding with a minimum 3-night stay.
However, most of you I’m sure would love to add your own touches and enhancements to make it your very own.  Sandal offers the most Over-the-Water Serenity Wedding Chapels in the world.  There are three in Jamaica, one at Sandals Montego Bay, Sandals South Coast and Sandals Ochi. All three of these have been blessed for Catholic weddings as well.  They also have one available at the Sandals Grande St. Lucian.  What is so very exciting about Sandals and Beaches is that they offer a program called “Test Drive”.  This is where the wedding couple or the Bride and a single guest can experience the resort of their choice for a reduced rate, which in turn is then credited back to the couple upon booking 5 or more rooms for their wedding.  The options are truly limitless, and no one wedding will ever be the same.  If you are already married no worries, they also have a Retie-the Knot for couples seeking to renew their vows.  There are several different options for those as well.  The best part is you have a designated team of wedding specialists to work directly with you to make your destination wedding the wedding of your dreams.  There is nothing more romantic then the Caribbean and Sandals and Beaches have brought romance and wedding to a whole new level. Who’s ready to say I DO?  I am a certified Sandals Specialist and can help you plan that dream destination wedding.

Beaches Turks & Caicos-Best Family Choice

No comments

If you are looking for fun in the sun and a fabulous getaway for the whole family, I would highly recommend Beaches in Turks and Caicos.

Beaches is a privately owned Caribbean company that is an all-inclusive family resort. When I say all-inclusive, I mean all-inclusive. All meals, snacks, anytime dining, unlimited drinks, nightly entertainment, land sports, and some water sports are included. The resort is a short 15-minute transfer ride from the airport. It boasts 758 rooms and has suites nestled on 75 acres of a pristine beachfront. Beaches is known for their 5-star Global Gourmet dining and at Beaches Turks and Caicos they have 21 dining options, so there’s something for everyone’s taste buds. They have the largest Pirates Island Waterpark plus a surf simulator. This resort is broken down into villages all with a little bit of a different flare to them. The five villages are The Caribbean, known for its lush gardens along with easy access to both pool and beach. The Seaside, which hosts 1 and 2 bedroom villas and is closest to the water. The French, which is set back away from the ocean, but closer to the waterpark and has access to the zero-entry pool, a wonderful option for families with younger children. The Italian, known to be grand but intimate and it has easy access to everything including the beach, pool, and the waterpark. Lastly, the Key West Village, known for its luxurious and laid-back beach vibe.

At Beaches, they have many different room categories including Concierge and Butler Elite. These are ideal for all families. They give you extra amenities to make your getaway truly unforgettable. Turks and Caicos is one of the world’s top diving destinations and Beaches does offer PADI certification for adults and children alike. This destination would be a wonderful idea for a multi-generational trip or family reunion.

I highly recommend taking time to slow down and be with family, and I can’t think of a better place than Beaches in Turks and Caicos.
