This years dream holiday to the Dominican Republic is becoming a distant memory all too quickly. I’ve still got a serious case of the holiday blues but it’s about time I told you about the incredible trip we had. And where better to start than with one of THE most amazing days ever?! We popped into the preferred club (Dreams resorts offer an upgrade to ‘preferred’ for an extra cost that is so worth it – more on that later) to ask about hiring the private pool area for the day and decided to go for the premium option which included a three course lunch and a 50 minute massage, on top of the private area and our own waiter for the day (who was incredible and always just a phone call away). We made our way down to the area and were immediately blown away by the stunning views and just how pretty and pristine the area was, but I’ll let the photos do a little more of the talking…
DRESS | SWIMSUIT | RING | WATCH
Is there anything quite as delightful as popping a chilled bottle of fizz in the sunshine? After making sure we were all set up, assuring us we could ring him whenever we needed anything and taking a few snaps, our lovely waiter left us to enjoy our little slice of heaven.
After polishing off the bottle and moving on to a round of cocktails, it wasn’t long till our waiter returned once more with the first course of our lunch. I opted for caesar salad to start whilst Jamie plumped for the tropical seafood cocktail (both equally yummy). Up next we both went with the lobster risotto… light and flavoursome risotto rice and deliciously fresh lobster tails = perfection. After polishing that off, I finished with fruit and dipping chocolate and of course a little more champers before moving back to the pool.
Floating about drinking mojitos is such hard work, don’t you think? Maybe I could make it a full-time profession! After a few more hours lazing about in the sunshine our masseuses turned up – a full body swedish for me and a deep tissue for Jamie. Having an area for lunch and a shaded area for our massage just added to the luxury and meant we didn’t have to potter too far on our slightly tipsy toes. It turned out that it was actually possible to get more relaxed than we already were! After almost drifting off, our wonderful waiter turned up with yet another bottle to pop (yes there’s absolutely far more than is possible to drink) and so there was only one thing for it…
I absolutely have to say a huge thank you to the preferred staff for organising such an incredible day for us. It was certainly a highlight of what was an unforgettable trip! This is the second year we’ve visited a Dreams Resort and I couldn’t recommend them more. The resorts and facilities and staff are just wonderful and I can’t wait to tell you more about them in the next instalment. Private pool rental at Dreams La Romana starts at $100 for the day which is incredible value and if you’re planning a trip I would definitely pop this into your schedule!
What do you think of our day? Have you been to the Dominican before? What’s your dream travel destination? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
