My Special Delivery for Sandals Whitehouse

Posted on Fri , Dec 11, 2015

I have been blessed with the most amazing clients over the years. A couple years ago I got to plan a very special Sandals vacation for a local barber. He loved Sandals Whitehouse so much that for months afterwards, men walked into our agency on a weekly basis with fresh haircuts asking about a Sandals vacation. 
One of those men was Don. He and his wife Sue were new to the area and had not ever vacationed at an all inclusive resort. The barber sat Don down in his chair and handed him his phone so that he could look over his vacation photos while he told him all about it. I think we booked Don and Sue for their first  trip to Sandals Whitehouse that same day. 
During their first visit to Whitehouse, Don and Sue enjoyed people watching from the patio area of Cafe de Paris - Sandals coffee house and pastry shop. Don and Sue don’t drink. But they love the social atmosphere of an adults-only all inclusive resort. They appreciate the personalized service that Sandals offers. That week they also made friends with a very special employee named Odane in the gift shop. 
Don and Sue were hooked. They visited two more Sandals properties within just over a year. For their fourth Sandals trip, they decided to return to Sandals Whitehouse. Upon arriving in Whitehouse, they found that Odane had been promoted to the on-resort jewelry store. They learned how he was a self-taught musician, and he plays bass in the Mento band with his dad. The band performs twice per week on resort for the guests during dinner time. Don and Sue were highly impressed with his musical ability. After his shift one day he stopped in at his church to record himself playing the piano because they wanted to hear more of his music. During their conversations, Odane mentioned that he would like to learn to play the saxophone. 
When they arrived home, Don and Sue decided to buy a saxophone for Odane. They came to my office to ask about shipping it to Jamaica. I knew this would not be an option as customs can be very complicated, and my first inclination was to tell them they’d just have to book a trip back to Whitehouse! Then I remembered that I would be headed to that resort for the annual Sandals Travel Agents Recognition awards shortly. So I offered to take the saxophone to Odane on their behalf. I am so glad I did. 
Don and Sue recorded a heartfelt message for their friend:
... and I headed off to sunny Jamaica, saxophone in hand. 
When we arrived on resort for the STAR awards, our agenda was jam packed. We missed our first opportunity to meet with Odane while he was working. When we asked about his schedule we found he would not be at work again before our short trip ended. But his manager called him, and he graciously offered to come meet us on his day off. 
I immediately knew why Don and Sue had come to love Odane. He is a kind, gracious, appreciative young man. He is the epitome of the Jamaican culture - perpetually happy with a magnetic smile. I tell clients all the time that Jamaicans are the happiest people in the world. 
So we showed Odane the message from Don and Sue:
Then we gave him the saxophone:
He was speechless. And overwhelmed with gratitude. 
What a special moment. I am so thankful to have been able to make this special delivery to Whitehouse. I told him to let me know once he learned to play his saxophone - clearly, it won’t take long! I can’t wait to book him as the saxophone player for my destination weddings in Whitehouse!! But even more so, I’m so happy to have another Jamaican friend. 
Here’s to you, Odane! Merry Christmas, friend. And to Don and Sue, thank you for your kindness and for allowing me to be part of this special moment.

Sandals Ochi | Jamaica

Posted on Fri , Jun 01, 2012

I'm thrilled to introduce to you Sandals Grande Riviera Beach & Villa Golf Resort in Ocho Rios, Jamaica - the newest resort in Jamaica. Many have previously known this resort as Sandals Ocho Rios, but with its recent 60 million dollar renovation, the transformation is on such a grand scale, the enhancements so impressive, the resort had to have a new name.

The Sand Lady's clients love this resort because it offers three distinctive vacation experiences: an oceanfront garden oasis called the Riviera Seaside, the hill-top Great House and Riviera Villas, and the hip new Ochi Beach Club.

Riviera Seaside

Sandals Grande Riviera is located on one of Jamaica’s most sought-after stretches of coastline.  Known as the Caribbean Riviera, the resort's endless alabaster beaches and crystal-clear waters host living coral reefs. A Grande Promenade stretching far over the sea allows you to stroll above the tide as soft ocean breezes calm the soul. Here, you may relax in diverse settings at seven sparkling pools and the resort’s best-kept secret: a hidden grotto pool tucked into the dense shade of a secluded garden.

Also on Riviera Seaside is Honeymoon beach. This is the most beautiful shoreline on the property. One day you will choose from the many water sports included in your stay and the next you will relax on the beach while you enjoy a tropical drink and the companionship of your loved one.

Honeymoon Beach

Great House and Riviera Villas

Tucked in the lush hillsides of Ocho Rios, the Great House and the Riviera Villa Suites with their 93 private and semi-private pools offer a unique blend of privileged seclusion and unparalleled luxury. Accommodations at the Great House feature a one-acre, zero-entry pool and swim-up pool bar. The serenity of relaxing in your private pool-side cabana is an experience not to be missed.

Enjoy a Great House suite with balcony overlooking the pool or relax beside your own private pool in one of the Riviera Villa Suites, hidden from the world, surrounded by trees and countless species of butterflies. Nothing could be more magical than a midnight swim, just the two of you with a chilled bottle of champagne and the scent of night-blooming jasmine all around you.

Ochi Beach Club

Whether you choose to stay in the Riviera Seaside accommodations, at the Great House or in the Riviera Villa suites, you will NOT want to miss the all new Ochi Beach Club. The most exclusive club in Ocho Rios is also the sexiest. Welcome to Sandals' Ochi Beach Club – a seaside world of chic sophistication. Sheer linen curtains waft gently in the sea breeze as you lie on the divan of your private cabana. Newly found friends gather to sip ice–cold dry martinis on the sun deck overlooking the sea. And when the sun goes down, "Ochi" burns even brighter. Enjoy a sensational dinner at the new Kimonos restaurant then dance to the pulsing rhythms of reggae performed by Jamaica's top performers.

Client Review: Sandals Royal Plantation

Posted on Tue , May 22, 2012

client review sandals royal plantationNeal Green - along with his wife Susan - owns All Occasion Catering, Knoxville's premier catering service. Neal also serves on the International Caterers Association's Board of Directors.

We recently sent Neal and Susan to Sandals Royal Plantation to rest after a very busy holiday season and recharge before the hectic wedding season began. Here, we interview Chef Green to get his impressions of the resort and Sandals dining experience in Ocho Rios.

Sandals Royal Plantation is a small, boutique resort with only 74 suites. What did you think about the size of this resort?
Well, it may be small, but it is also a member of the prestigious Leading Small Hotels of the World® for a reason. For us, the size of this resort is absolutely perfect. The service was very personalized, and Sandals Personal Butler Service was wonderful and not to be missed! It could not have been better. Regarding the size of the resort, I was most impressed with the interaction I had with other executive-type guests. We made new friends, and really enjoyed getting to know some very interesting people.

What was your overall impression of Sandals dining experience?
It was great! The food was very good and diverse. It is important to remember where you are, though - especially at dinner time. Here, dinner is a two-and-a-half hour four or five-course gormet meal. Truely fine dining. Of course, if you're just not in the mood, there is always a grill option as well.

Where did you have your most memorable meal at Sandals Royal Plantation?
We had dinner at Le Papillon one night. It is a very elegant, French-inspired restaraunt. I had the filet of beef and my wife had the lobster tail. It was all very fresh, and I was impressed with the portion sizes as well. Later in our trip, I surprised Susan and had our butler arrange a private candle light dinner under the stars on the pier overlooking the ocean. The food during this dinner also came from Le Papillon, and it was very good as well.

[There are two Sandals resorts in the Ocho Rios area of Jamaica - Sandals Royal Plantation, where Neal and Susan stayed, and Sandals Grande Riviera. Guests of Sandals Royal Plantation have full access to all ammenities and activities at Sandals Grande Riviera. Transportation is also included. While there are four dining options at Sandals Royal Plantation, this program expands your dining options to include the 15 options at Sandals Grande Riviera as well.]

Did you take advantage of Sandals Dine Around Ocho Rios program?
Yes, several times. We enjoyed meals at Kimono's Japanese Teppanyaki Restaurant, Soy sushi bar, The Mariner's Beach Grill, and Dino's Pizzeria. We did not have a dissapointing meal. Our favorites at Sandals Grande Riviera were China Doll and Manor. China Doll is a very unique, exotic restaurant serving diner and decorated with rich silks in red and gold. The food here was amazing. Their menu offers five courses of selections from all over the Orient. I would recommend the potstikers and sesame crusted snapper filet. Manor is a gorgeous outdoor restaurant serving a la carte diner by the pool. This is a more laid back dinner with some suprisingly sumptious Caribbean entres. We thought that the Dine Around program was the "icing on the cake" for our stay at Sandals Royal Plantation. Although we had fabulous meals at our resort, I would highly recommend guests take advantage of what Sandals Grande Riviera has to offer as well. I am really impressed with the dining options Sandals offers in this area of Jamaica.

Well, I don't need to ask if you'll go back to Sandals Royal Plantation. We've already taken care of that and have you booked for 11 nights next year!
Yes, we're already looking forward to a longer stay this time and reconnecting with some of the friends we made during our stay this year.

What are the three words you would use to describe your dining experience?
Very well done.
