Alone together

Have you ever felt the need to get away from it all?  To pack a suitcase, hop a plane and find your own little piece of heaven in the sand?  In a world of instant access to work and the constant distractions that swarm our modern existence, for many of us the need to escape has gotten even stronger.

Despite the white sand and tropical sun that avails itself at every modern all inclusive resort, the availability of alone time is often restricted to the hotel room itself.   Not wanting to miss out on all the revelry, sunbathing and cocktail drinking that is to be found at the resort I have felt conflicted between my desire to be pampered and catered to and my need to get the rest and relaxation I have come for.

If you have ever felt yourself caught between the need to be social and the desire to be alone there may be a resort build just for you.

Sandals Ochi Beach Resort is now offering first class get aways at the All Butler Villas and Great House Estate.  These beautiful suites will provide guests with the opportunity to have their own private escape with Sandals word class fun and amenities right outside their door.

Stepping back in time…

Travelling to Europe is like stepping back in time. The stunning cities, bridges and homes were built when craftsmanship was king. Long before television, phones and other modern day distractions, life was lived at a slower pace and beauty was praised over mere function. It is a wonder to behold and a feast for the senses. For many years train travel was the best way to go, but thanks to major innovations in cruise ship design, there is now an entirely new and much more luxurious way. I believe that a life well lived must include at least one trip to Europe and would like to help get you there.

Imagine yourself settling in to your Balcony stateroom aboard the luxury AMA Vida, champagne in hand. After spending 3 nights in a beautiful hotel in Lisbon, Portugal you were effortlessly whisked away to the port to embark on a 7 day cruise through some of the most stunning waterways in the world. You unpack your bags, throw open the curtains and step out onto your own private balcony. This will be your home for the next 7 days. Each morning you will awake to a breathtaking new view, each day you will explore a new and exciting place, and each night you will unwind with wine tastings, theme dinners, live music and the gentle breeze of river cruising, finally returning to your own private suite. The world will present itself to you while you dine in style and toast to new memories and friendships.
