Finally the weekend we had all been waiting for arrived... We were going to get to spend 3 whole days with Laura, one of my best friends from home.. and her and her partner (who we were about to meet for the first time!!) had hired a villa for all of us for the weekend.. we were about to be seriously spoilt!!
From Negril we hopped aboard a transfer to Half Moon Resort, Montego Bay where Laura and Michael had booked the villa. The property is over 400 acres includes multiple pools, a golf course, spas, tennis courts, croquet lawns and more.. you name it they’ve got it. The place was huge and our villa came equipped with a few staff members (all incredibly nice) and 2 golf carts to drive around the premises… Needless to say it was absolutely amazing and a total difference to the last 8 months of accommodation. They seriously spoilt us!
We arrived, embraced, sipped beverages in the pool, around the pool and on the pool… You get it, there was a lot of beverages and a lot of time in the pool. The next few days were a whirlwind of different meals, drinks and more with our little travelling crew that now included new friends - Mitch, Nicky and Joey from New York - Hey guys! Laura even treated me to my first ever spa experience; that’s right I’ve never been to a spa before and have only had a manicure and pedicure once, it’s just never been my thing. That being said I did seriously enjoy it, and after 8 months travelling I think my feet really needed it. (Thanks Lau!!)
However the real highlight of the weekend, besides getting to spend a full 3 days with one of our best friends we hadn’t seen for almost a year was Saturday. On Saturday Michael and Laura hired us all a catamaran in which sailed around the caribbean for a few hours sipping rum punch, listening to music and snorkelling at multiple spots before heading to Margaritaville for lunch.
Margaritaville is a huge restaurant on the water complete with with it's own water playground. Here we made the absolute most of the bar’s water slide, played on their huge inflatable floating playground and of course, topped ourselves off with numerous margaritas.
The weekend absolutely flew by and ended with myself, Laura, Sar and Tash watching the sunrise over the caribbean sea. It was perfect, and we will never be able to repay Laura and Michael for their generosity. Again here pictures will probably do more of the talking… If you’ve seen pictures of any of our previous accommodations you’ll see it is totally different, and it felt really nice to be spoilt and not have to plan anything for 3 whole days!
Thank you Laura and Michael, we love you both and cannot wait to see you asap!
Next stop Ocho Rios, Jamaica!
