A Taste Of Thailand In Jamaica



Last week I had the pleasure to travel to Jamaica on a “Wedding Familiarization Trip” with the media. The purpose of this trip was to give them the opportunity to experience “Sandals Resorts” and to understand what we’re all about, since we are the “leaders” in the destination wedding market we wanted to show them everything that sets us apart and why we continue to be voted “World’s Best” year after year.

 On our first evening we went to Sandals Royal Caribbean Resort & Private Island where we were whisked away to “Sandals Cay” via a dragon boat.  Once we stepped off of the boat and onto the secluded private island oasis we could feel the magic of Thailand and the vibe of Jamaica all at the same time, Asian influences in the decor and Jamaican hospitality at its finest were noticed immediately. I am thrilled that we started our wedding tour here as it’s such an incredible place for couples to wed; couples can actually rent the entire island for their wedding and or their reception, this  unique experience was the perfect way to start our “destination weddings” journey.

Sandals Cay has many great features; one of them being the “Royal Thai” Restaurant where we dined. I enjoyed every aspect of the evening from the dragon boat ride to the incredible authentic Thai meal and of course the delectable dessert. The evening could not have been more perfect as our backdrop was the Caribbean Sea...Great food, exceptional service and best of all new friendships were made that evening. This was the perfect start to an incredible trip!!
