When your editor asks if you can go to the Bahamas to do an article on all-inclusive resorts, you say yes!
Just received my contributor copies of AAA Southern Traveler and AAA Midwest Traveler for November / December 2013 and was elated to see my feature article titled Packaged Deal grace the pages of both magazines.
The employees of Sandals, Emerald Bay and Sandals Royal Bahamian were gracious, friendly, fun and informative.
For the first time in my life, hubby and I experienced ‘king and queen treatment’ with butler service at both resorts. And the Red Lane spa service, especially the West Indian massage, was to die for.
On Exuma, we snorkeled right off the beach, sipped cappuccinos and ate pastries at Café De Paris several times daily, and enjoyed the Friday night junkanoo with a limbo dancer. The resort even set up a full day excursion for us – the 007 Thunderball Luxury Tour.
At the Nassau resort, we savored exquisite food, relaxed at our private cabana at the offshore island in a Zen garden setting, and enjoyed a personal tour of downtown Nassau with its colorful sights and sounds.
Thank you Chester, Kendra, Snovakia our PR peeps at the resorts; Jessica our tour organizer, and Peter Burrows of Exuma Cay Adventures. And who could forget our butlers – Logesh at Emerald Bay, and Everette, Dillon, and Antonio at Royal Bahamian.
It’s better in the Bahamas!
