February Winner
February 22, 2010


Hello Canada,
A few weeks ago I asked you to tell me what you love most about Sandals; I would like to thank everyone who posted a reply on my blog. Every post was entered into a draw and I would like to congratulate Micheline Dion for winning a 4 night stay to a Sandals/Beaches Resort.
 Here is what Micheline posted:
Charismatic, Inviting, Caring, Attentive, Top Quality services are just starters. The attentiveness, patience, and constant uplifting support from my BDM
Michelle Lanoue, my favorite gal Teresa and the rest of the Toronto Team is a driving force that inspires you to go beyond and above.

And it extends way beyond that..Winston Anderson Grande St Lucian...Boxing Day...answering my emails and helping with a client held up from the Christmas Day
Bomber aftermath. Guests on their honeymoon, despite losing a day to airline security & flight delays, returning to thank me and the Sandals team who rearranged
everything from helicopter transfer, a tour they would miss, and making what was a terrible start into " The most wonderful time of our lives".

And the clients who travelled 1 hour to meet even when I offer to meet them. Yes they booked!
The knowledge and experience I have now is all due to the Sandals TEAM.

And never two without three...Visiting with a past Sandals client who wanted to know all about Emerald Bay. Two hour house visit and they are still raving
at the concierge who picked up on a birthday and arranged for a surprise - a rose and decorated room. The honeymooning groom just happen to mention it and never asked
for anything. The bride still after a year and a half - BEST VACATION EVER!

The team who pays attention inspires me to keep doing what I'm doing. When you are passionate the clients come, stay and spread the word!

Sandals is much more than Luxury Included it's Passion Included.
Thank you Micheline for you wonderful post.
Wishing you all a wonderful week!!

Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club
February 28, 2010


Hello Canada,
I am excited to share the article below with you as I’m sure all of you golfers out there will be excited about our Greg Norman partnership!!
~World-Renowned Golf Professional, Greg Norman, Pays a Visit to His Exclusively-Designed Golf Course at Sandals Emerald Bay, Great Exuma, Bahamas ~
Sandals Resorts is thrilled to announce that pro-golfer Greg Norman is the new lifestyle spokesman for Sandals Emerald Bay, Great Exuma, Bahamas and the resort’s Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club. The PGA Champion met with Sandals Resorts’ Chairman and Founder, Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, and CEO, Adam Stewart, at their newest Luxury Included® resort in early February to launch the new partnership. Although Norman designed the resort’s spectacular 18-hole championship golf course in 2004, the February visit marked Norman’s first stay at the resort.
As the new lifestyle spokesman, Greg Norman will not only be an advocate for the spectacular Emerald Reef Golf Club, but will also speak to the many other resort activities available at Sandals Emerald Bay, including scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing. Norman will also have an active role in the creation of golf packages, promotions, events and tournaments located at Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club.
During his first visit to Sandals Emerald Bay, Greg Norman toured his 18-hole, 7,001-yard, par-72 course perched above the turquoise waters of the Bahamian Out Islands peninsula. The course features six signature ocean-side holes, along with holes that wind through seaside dunes and mangrove preserves. The Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club is also dedicated to sustainable efforts, with native vegetation lining the course as well as seashore paspalum, a strain of grass that provides salt water irrigation and reduces the need for herbicides and fertilizers.
Sandals Emerald Bay is the latest addition to the Sandals Resorts family and truly expands upon the company’s Luxury Included® concept as the first Sandals Resort to offer butler service for all 183 rooms and suites. All resort butlers are trained by the prestigious Professional Guild of English Butlers and Norman himself was surprised to find a very friendly face amongst them; his former butler from his time in Dubai, Henry Diaz. As a highly skilled butler, Diaz remembered Mr. Norman’s preferences and made his stay at the resort even more comfortable.
 To learn more about Sandals Emerald Bay or the Sandals Emerald Reef Golf Club, call 1-800-545-8283  or visit www.sandals.com.
Wishing you all a great week!!!
