Last Morning Dilemma…Beach, Bath or Shower???

Leave a comment

Today is my last day here at Secrets in Jamaica and my “Last Morning Dilemma was … Beach, Bath or Shower???

The Bath won out! I am in love with the Jacuzzi Bath in my room and couldn’t resist taking one more lovely, relaxing, massaging soak in it! I’m going to miss it..along with so many sweet moments that I’ve enjoyed here!

Last days are so bitter sweet. And this week seems to have flown by…

Will be posting more as I’ve collected so many great pics while I’ve been here. This place is made for great pictures! What with perfect Sunsets, Great Beach and Calm Ocean and Friendly Staff. The Secrets are Sweet in Jamaica at Secrets Wild Orchid and Secrets St. James

Shopping Made Easy and FUN here at Secrets in Jamaica!

LOVE The Signature Shop and Handcraft Shops here at Secrets in Jamaica! They are Treasure Troves for shopping for Necessities and Souvenirs alike!

They are open from 8am until 10 pm everyday. Right now there are 2 shops, but soon they will be expanding to 3. They are located in the “Shopping Plaza” near the Coco Cafe. Just off the main lobby of Secrets Wild Orchid. Both shops are staffed with helpful and friendly folks and managed by Mrs. Bernadette Dunn.

Mrs. Dunn has a fashion flair and the shops show that in what they carry!

I loved that all kinds of Resort Wear is offered for all types of figures, being a “fluffy lady” myself…I always appreciate that! They have logo wear with the Secrets Logo and all types of tee shirts along with things you may have forgotten or TSA or the airline may have taken…like hair clips, scissors, swim goggles and more. I was truly impressed at the VARIETY!

So impressed I think I took over 200 pictures in both stores! The slide show doesn’t contain all 200 but I hope it will give you an idea of what you can find and FUN you will have once you enter the shops! Shopping is FUN and Easy here at both Secrets St. James and Secrets Wild Orchid!

Can you walk on water? Well you can TRY to here at Secrets in Jamaica!

Yesterday as I was passing by the pool I got to see a fun group of friends in the pool with the latest FUN Activity…The Aqua Ball! And let me tell you they were having a BALL!

Hope you enjoy this little slideshow with pics and video clips showing the Aqua Ball!

You get in, they fill it up with air and then you walk your way to the pool and they “PLOP” you in! And then the FUN Begins!

Everyone was laughing and enjoying…the folks in the ball and all of us by the pool enjoying the show! WHAT FUN! There is always something fun going on here!

Breakfast Time @ Secrets in Jamaica

Leave a comment

Breakfast Time @Secerts in Jamaica is FUN for you and your taste buds! So many choices! From Cereals, to a Variety of Breads, Eggs, Bacon and Sausage and tasty Jamaican Treats too. So you can be adventurous and try things that perhaps you haven’t had…or stick to what you always like.

I suggest trying a few new things while you are here! I love the Akee and also the fish in the morning with breakfast! Yesterday I had the French Toast Brule…and was it ever good! YUMMY!!!

Each day you will find a large array of food there and the staff is always so happy! Its not unusual that you will hear singing and the voices are like angels from heaven!

Breakfast at the World Cafe here truly is an experience you don’t want to miss.

When leaving just outside you will find a lovely fountain…so bring some change with you so you can toss some coins in! The coins go to helping an Outreach Program here for the Kids of Jamaica.

You can also donate items to the program…check with Caulette or Guest Services if you bring things they will be happy to help.

FUN FOOD at Secrets in Jamaica!

Leave a comment

Today was a FUN day even though a few drops of liquid sunshine fell everyone here had a great time! It only lasted a few minutes and then it was gone and the sun came out again and the FUN in the SUN continued the rest of the day!

Discovered the Barefoot Grill today! Its located between Secrets St. James and Wild Orchid and its a fun place for a snack or light lunch. They serve Hot Dogs and Hamburgers along with Nachos and Cheese…but my FAV are the Jamaican Chicken Patties and Veggie Fritters YUM YUM!!! They have cold sodas served up in a canoe! And Infused waters available too!

Tonights dining experience was at Himitsu at the Show Cooking Table! What FUN! They start you out with some Sushi and then move on to soup, you can choose spicy shrimp or misu. I had the Misu Soup and it was so good! Then the show begins as the cook prepares your meal right before your eyes! Shrimp, Chicken, Beef and all the fixin’s like fried Rice and veggies! The food was GREAT! Its a fun experience and one I recommend you try when you are here!

The Spa at Secrets in Jamaica…LOVE IT!

Leave a comment

Yesterday I went to the Spa and along the way captured some pictures that I’d like to share with you…

This is my third trip here, my first was right after the opening and I couldn’t help thinking yesterday as I was strolling to the spa how much it has blossomed truly making this a first class resort!

The grounds have all grown in now…with the plantings so beautiful … The walk along the pathway is both restful and relaxing. I loved hearing the birds singing as I was strolling to the spa! And the whimsical Sculpture and fountain along the way, so many touches that just add to the experience! I LOVE “Spa-ing” and getting there is part of the FUN at this property!

The Spa here is not only beautiful and has many state of the art features within it, they are also staffed by very talented therapists and support staff.

First I toured the Spa with Cordillia who took me to my locker and then showed me around again. Another feature that has grown into a lovely area is the Moon and Stars Garden Area just outside the Revive Resting Area on the 1st floor. Its a lovely Manicured Garden Area where they do Outdoor Sunset and Moonlight Massage Packages where you can experience the elements of nature including the sound of the Ocean! LOVE THAT!

On the Second Floor of the Spa are the Therapy Rooms and another relaxing area all done in a soothing and relaxing decor. I had a Swedish Massage with Joan who I know from Previous Visits here. She is a lovely lady who made the experience magical for me. She along with the rest of the Spa Staff have a gift for transporting you to another place!

When I left I felt not only Revived and Renewed but also blessed in the fact that I was here and alive.

The Signature Shop managed by Mrs. Bernadette Dunn and her staff provided a GREAT FASHION SHOW by the Pool Deck at Secrets Wild Orchid. Guests were the models and everyone enjoyed themselves!

I recommend if you are looking for resort wear…stop by the Signature Shop it has all kinds of fashions from Dresses, to tops and bottoms…hats and bags and tee shirts and so much more! They carry all kinds of things you may need while here…SPF Sun Block, Cigarettes, Snacks, Post Cards and so much more.

Hola and Buenos Dias! Wanted to share something for those of you who may be going to a Destination Wedding at one of the AMResorts Hotels, Zoetry, Secrets, Dreams, Now, Sunscape! Or if you have somene special at one of the resorts you would like to send a little something special to while they are staying…

There are many things, like flowers, sweet treats, fruit plates, sushi and upgraded amenities are available for purchase to enhance the experience. They are nice treats to consider if you are coming for a special occasion, such as a birthday or wedding. Or even if you know someone who is coming and you want to surprise them with a little extra touch!

My suggestion is to reach out to the Econcierge at whichever resort and to let them know you are looking to enhance your or someone else experience with a treat…. They will have a complete list of things and prices and are always happy to be of help in adding a smile to your or that someone specials day or time at the resort!

Its a great way to show the LOVE and Share the LOVE!

You can go to any of the resorts fanpage and find their e concierge and get in touch! And also you can write to me and I would be happy to forward on their email info if for some reason you cannot find it.

Here is a link that will take you to a great way to stay connected with info and links to all of the Resorts:

http://www.amresorts.com/connect.html

I apologize for not sharing this sooner. I’ve been truly blessed in forming some very special relationships along the way of my travels and look forward to continue to sharing the LOVE!

Sweet SECRETS abound in Jamaica!

Showing some of the pics and the things that captured my heart and lifted my spirit! The resort was BRAND NEW last year and still was so beautiful!

I am headed back again this year at the end of May for a week and can’t wait to see the changes! The growth in plants and trees… To see some amazing Sunsets! To revisit with some of the nicest staff around! My heart is very happy at going back to Share SWEET JAMAICAN SECRETS!

Also this year there will be a great event called “Face 2 Face” that the resort is sponsoring where many of the “FaceBook” Fans of each of the resorts will be able to “Meet and GREET”…it should be FUN! This is the 2nd event like this that the resort has sponsored and I am very excited to be able to be there and take part in it!

While there I will be blogging, tweeting and posting LIVE FROM sharing the event with all of you!

Jammin In Jamaica! Face 2 Face! The BESTEST BASH EVER!!!
