So my birthday came and went and all the celebrations are now over. Left up to me I wouldn’t have made any plans because I’m not into the big birthday celebrations anymore. My circle definitely got smaller for one, so there’s hardly anyone to celebrate with plus nothing ever goes as planned.
However, my parents decided to treat me to a weekend at a hotel; they’ve all done this before, but this was my first time. Our hotel of choice was The Verandah Resort & Spa.
The hotel is located on the eastern side of the island and I live on the western side, so it was about a 30-40 minute drive. We got out there at about 12:30 p.m. checked in then went to lunch until our room was ready. After lunch we basically hung around the bar to kill time and just relax.
Our room was ready around 2:00 p.m. and while collecting my keys I received a complimentary bottle of champagne for my birthday gift. Yay!
The room was gorgeous and spacious. The colors, the art work on the walls and all the amenities provided were A1. I could stay in the room forever, and don’t talk about the view! My only regret was not capturing a picture of the sunrise/sunset.
There are three pools located around the resort, as well as access to two different beaches. Unfortunately, I never visited the pool but I did go to the beach as seen above (first image). The landscape around the resort is also very beautiful and relaxing.
Overall I had a great time and enjoyed the weekend; It was a good getaway. My only disappointment was with the food which is enough to make me question a repeat visit. I also got cake and was serenaded by the workers at a dinner, after party with live band and breakfast. They sure know how to make you feel special!
That just about wraps up my weekend! Hope your weekend was just as good.
