Couples Resorts Jamaica

People know I love Couples Resorts in Jamaica.

Couples Resorts are adults only and all inclusive located in four different locations on the Island of Jamaica! Friendly staff and comfortable rooms, not over the top, what’s not to love? Are you still wondering if this could be the right place for your romantic anniversary or honeymoon? Here’s what sets these resorts apart.

  •  All king beds. Yes, every room in every one of these Jamaican resorts offer king beds. Why is this important to you? There is NO way you’ll end up with 2 double beds by mistake. This also means the resort is usually all other guests who are also couples. Over all, this makes the atmosphere more romantic! Each property is very small and almost boutique in style. The staff will take time to get to know you and many times will remember what you drink the next day when you swim up to the bar. There is nightly entertainment at each property, every night will have a different show or theme night.

Couples Swept Away

The most desirable beach in all of the Caribbean is were you will find Couples Swept Away. The middle of 7 miles beach the beach is at it’s widest point in this area. There are multiple buildings sprinkled in the trees and pathways, buildings are no taller than a palm tree. The tree frogs sing in the evening and create a wonderful romantic experience. When your number one demand is perfection in the quality of beach, this could be the place you are looking for.

Couples Negril –

Located on Bloody Bay and a short 90 minutes from the Montego Bay airport. I love this properties activity staff! There was always something fun going on. Donovan performed in the night club several times a week, he was a hit with every guest.

Couples San Souci –

Located just outside Ocho Rios, a cliff side oasis with plenty of private nooks. This property can offer one bedroom beachfront suites at very affordable prices! Should take you about 2 hours from either Montego Bay airport or slightly less from Kingston. The new Kingston highway is beautiful slice into the country side.

Couples Tower Isle

A bit farther down the road from San Souci you will find Tower Isle. In the 1950’s the rich and famous played here. Your beach here is much smaller and super quiet. There are no vendors or hundreds of other people from other properties walking on your beach. The private island is accessible by boat, and protects the shore line.  Because of the compact nature of this resort, you are never very far from a pool or some food.

The newest addition for a stay are the Spa Villas– staying in one of these 8 private Villas include unlimited spa treatments. Each Villa has it’s own swimming pool and access to the all inclusive amenities found on the resort.

Would you like more information about any of the Couples resorts? Please contact Trish.  She has been to each of these resorts multiple times!

Bridal Show or Expo Tips and Tricks

Exciting, you are planning your wedding! What’s your next step? Going to a local Bridal show or expo of course!

Bridal show, sometimes called wedding show, or bridal fairs are a great way to meet many of the businesses and people you need to pull off the perfect day.

Here’s a few tips to get the most enjoyment out of your next bridal show or bridal expo when planning your wedding.

#1 – Wear good shoes- There is usually a lot of walking involved. You might be there for an hour or on larger shows you might be there all day? Depending on your planning and what you have left to take care of.

#2 – Bring a bag- Bridal shows are full of vendors who want you to remember them, most of the time this means bringing home business cards, promotional pens, pricing flyers, and other various items. Many times the organizer will give away bags, sometimes they run out, there may be bags sacks not the right size for every thing, or not very good quality when they get heavy.

#3 – Have a plan! Every couple is in different planning stages for their wedding. Know what you are
looking to find can help save you time. Do you need a cake (many have samples), honeymoon, photographer, reception decor or still looking for a dress? Most likely there will be more than one of each category.  They will be spread out and not usually next to each other, another reason for those comfortable walking shoes!Bridal show brain mem

#4- Pre printed labels – Many times there are drawings for prizes. You can sign up for newsletters or extra information from the wedding businesses. Pre printed labels can save you from hand writing dozens of times. Labels get accurate information to the wedding service provider; without the trouble of deciphering hand writing. Have your labels include:

#5- Keep an eye out for professional vendors

Anyone who pays the organizer’s fee to be in the wedding show or expo can be there. This does not mean they are professional or will do a great job for your wedding. Do the vendors or businesses have:

  • Professional looking signage
  • Professional looking business cards
  • Takes time to talk to you answer a few basic questions
  • Are they dressed to impress

If these businesses don’t impress you at the one time they should! Imagine what kind of care they are going to take when providing the service you need for your wedding? Check them out as you would any one you are going to hire for your wedding.

Top Five Honeymoon Travel Tips.

TOP FIVE Honeymoon TRAVEL TIPS: (Good for regular vacations too)

Ah yes grasshopper, I have learned the hard way. A few tips from a pro about honeymoon travel, even the best laid plans can fail, to no fault of your own.

1) Always put some of each other’s clothes in the other’s checked bag as a precaution.

Never pack valuables such as jewelry and cameras. Pack a carry-on bag with valuables, prescriptions, toiletries, swimwear, travel documents, sunglasses and a change of clothes just in case you have to wait for your room or your luggage gets lost.

2) Don’t let $100 or $200 stop you from doing something you will always remember.

A romantic dinner at a fancy restaurant with spectacular views. A catamaran sailing on the open seas. Scuba diving an old ship wreck or swimming with Dolphins. This is your honeymoon! Every trip after this is just a vacation. You may never be able to do this again.Snuba Mexico underwater

3) If you can avoid it.

Don’t book your flight for EARLY the next morning after the wedding, particularly if you’re having a large evening reception. Once you finally get to sleep it may be hard to wake up at 4:30 a.m. for that early morning flight; or worse you may not even hear the alarm! Not a good start to your honeymoon.

4) Read your itinerary.

No matter where you purchase your trip from, proof read your invoice, and travel documents, the fine print. Most times small things can be corrected before larger issues arise. Travel dates of JUN and JUL are only 1 letter different or a simple click on the wrong month in a calendar.

5) Perfect honeymoons don’t just happen.

Perfect honeymoons have to be carefully planned. The more you do your honeymoon homework, the more romantic – and the more fun – your honeymoon will be. Find a good travel expert,  the services of an experienced travel agent can save you hundreds of hours and make everything flow. You will have oodles of other things having to do with your wedding to keep you busy. Let a travel expert worry about your honeymoon travel plans.

How much is a good honeymoon budget.

How much to allow for your honeymoon budget.

Honeymoon couples often start their search with a long list of must haves… Only to find what they really want and how much these things cost don’t always fit in their honeymoon budget.  Unless you’re well off, it’s almost impossible to check everything off a wish list. So what’s a couple to do?  Compromise on your budget….. on your honeymoon?   No worries, with a few adjustments you can travel without breaking the bank.

Think about these common concessions and what they mean to your dream honeymoon and you overall wedding budget. What would you want to keep no matter what the cost? What can you live without?

Compromise # 1: Beach Quality

Everyone dreams of white powdery sand through their toes, the problem, truly white powdery sand is a little harder to find than you might imagine. Slightly less desired beach can save hundreds. No I’m not talking a cliff, maybe it’s more of tan in color or has a few rocks or is only a football field long versus miles. If you come from the Midwest it’s still a better beach than you’ve seen before.

Compromise #2: Amenities

Services such as; unlimited al a carte gourmet dining, romantic Jacuzzi tub for 2 in your room, that suite located beachfront with the waves at your door, an exclusive private outdoor shower or 24 hour room service are great ways to make your trip special. These items also have a cost. Are you able to do without 24 hour room service? After all you can always get food yourself. That Jacuzzi for 2 may be hard to find in some modest budget resorts. Beachfront is always more than a garden view.

Compromise # 3: location, location, location

White sand beach

7 miles of powery beach

Location is important in home buying and it’s true for your honeymoon vacation as well. Destinations that are closer to home many times have less expensive flights. These destinations can offer you a better value. You may have your heart set on that overwater bungalow in beautiful Bora Bora. Once you find out the price tag for the average airline ticket is roughly $1600 a piece, you might change your mind quickly.

Compromise # 4: departure day

Weddings tend to be on Friday or Saturday and especially the months of June and July. Most couples want to travel for their honeymoon immediately after their ceremony. Changing this by just a couple of days can help you find better airfare prices. There’s actually no written rule that says you need to leave immediately after your wedding. Bonus, most resorts will still apply honeymoon amenities several months after the wedding within reason. Having a wedding over a major holiday like Thanksgiving or Christmas, take your honeymoon after the holidays are over and demand returns to normal.

No matter what your honeymoon budget, you can still have a fantastic trip; after all you’ll be with the love of your life. Knowing a few ways to adjust your wish list can help greatly.  Want to avoid having to adjust your wish list? Our next post will help you avoid having to compromise.

What do you wear in the air?

What to wear in the air tips.

You’ve been planning your vacation for months. You’ve covered just about everything, yet when it’s time to leave you don’t feel quite right. Are you dressed “air appropriate” and what do you wear to fly now a days? Let’s face it, the spaciousness is gone on the aircraft these days, yet you don’t have to be entirely uncomfortable. Here’s a few tips to make your air travel more pleasant.

Cats crammed in a box

Flying coach today.

Breathe– This applies to your clothing, breathable fabrics such as cotton linens and other materials enhancer comfort level. Long flights in cramped spaces and tight clothes don’t go good together. Loose clothing helps your blood circulation and makes it easy to move around.  

Keep it cleanSmall spaces and strong scents don’t go well together. This pertains to the clothes you wear, the perfume ,cologne and lotion you apply as well. Others who you’re sharing your armrest with may not appreciate your fragrances, and may even cause problems for passengers with asthma or allergies.

 Step it upYour footwear is more important than you know. Not only may you have to stand in a long line, you hold up the line taking on and off cumbersome shoes at security. Flip-flops sounds like a great idea, however watch your toes when you’re in the crowded airport changing planes. Shoes that are comfortable and allow for a quick on-and-off are usually your best bet.

LayersThere is one thing always true with air travel. Temperatures on aircraft are always fluctuating. When you’re on the ground, waiting for take off, the plane can be hot, and as soon as you take off you are freezing. Wear layers so you can adjust as needed. And if you’re leaving Minnesota in the winter to someplace tropical, have the extra pair of shorts in your carry-on. You can change when you arrive in the airport.

Looking stylishWhile wearing jewelry through TSA line is not advised, you can keep such items handy in your purse or carry-on and put them on once your past security.

Flying with sensibility and comfort in mind is the perfect way to begin your travels.

Tahiti Vanilla of the South Pacific

Cookies, cakes, ice cream, pastries and deserts around the world could not be the same as we know them today without the delicate touch of this interesting spice grown in Tahiti. Vanilla extract is produced by fermenting and curing the plants’ bean pods. From the cured and dried bean pods, the chemical compound C8H8O3, known as vanillin, produces the aroma that is extracted and blended with water and alcohol to create the second most expensive spice in the world .

Couple in Tahiti

Explore Tahiti visit a vanilla farm.

Tahitian vanilla is seldom grown as a single crop on a large scale. In fact, cultivation is often carried out on small unevenly shaped plots of land and sometimes among other plants. Most vanilla is planted on the windward side of the island because the plants require a lot of rain . The seeds are usually planted at the base of small “support trees,” which the vanilla vine uses to climb. As they reach the maximum height at which the farmers can reach and pollinate the plants, they are loosened from the tree and wrapped down towards the ground to create many layers of vines. Once planted, the vine takes three years before it begins to produce bean pods. The flowering season, usually takes place from July to August.      To learn more about the spice visit
