Trip to Couples San Souci

Couples San Souci in Ocho Rios, Jamaica was wonderful. When we first got to the Couples lounge in the Montego Bay airport we were greeted by a very friendly reception. The ride to the resort itself was about 2 hours from the airport but it was educational.

The resort sets on a hillside. It is very tropical and lush location, which to me, made it even better.

View from our room was superb, it was exactly what I was hoping for. The food was excellent, there are 3 restaurants on site and each one had great food and service.

The spa is located on a hillside next to the ocean. We took time out to get a couples massage, totally recommend, nothing like listening to the waves crash on the cliffs and the birds singing while you get a massage.

Hurricane Tomas was in the area it rained almost the entire time during our stay, but there was so many activities and things to do on the resort, we did not get bored at all. The staff was so upbeat and friendly even though they were having to work double time to keep the grounds clean because of wind and rain. They always had a smile on their faces, which made the resort that much better.

Cannot wait to return!!!

Touring the Resort at Paws Up

Today at Paws Up we toured the ranch. Not all 37,000 acres, but we went to River Camp that is located on the Blackfoot River.
 Like all Tent Camps, River Camp has a Dining Tent that is where breakfast and dinners are served. The campsites have a large fire pit for nightly fires and for toasting smores.

At River Camp, there are one bedroom and two bedrooms tents. The Bath house is a few steps away from the tents. The Bath house has all the amenities of a luxury bath in the cabins. If you think that you are not the camping types. I think camping at River Camp at the Resort at Paws up will change your mind.

The Blackfoot River is beautiful and peaceful as it flow through the Ranch. In the Summer guests can fly fish and raft on the River. Since we visited in October, we were able to ride ATVs along the river.

One of our stops on the ATV ride was at "Look Out Rock."  The view of the river and the mountains is incredible.  The ATV riding was the most fun activity of the weekend. 

It was cold but we bundled up and had a great time speeding around the ranch and getting dusty.

Working with a Virtuoso Travel Agents Makes a Difference

We booked a client at The Joule in Dallas.  She was more that impressed with her experience.  She emailed us this compliment.  Her comments prove that planning and booking travel with a Virtuoso Travel Agent makes a difference.   Arrived a bit ago and have had a letter delivered to my room describing the extras included in my “experience” and a half hour later they brought me complimentary chocolate covered potatoe chips from Neiman Marcus. Nice touch!

The room is likely one of the most well appointed rooms I have ever seen! Two bathrooms! Very modern, very chic!

I am so glad we didn’t change hotels. And thanks for the wonderful recommendation. It is superb! You are amazing!
