The sun is shining and the temperature is perfect! It is nice to see our guests enjoying the swimming lagoon, mini golf course and shuffleboard. The tennis courts were of course also in use by my two little professionals, Demi and Dani, who were training with their private coach by the beach.
The girls have teen facials and massages planned for later this afternoon. Demi really enjoys the short break from reality, often falling asleep in the care of our wonderful aesthetician Shane while being pampered with our many Pevonia products. Her skin has never looked better, thanks to our Spa and her new healthy lifestyle. I too have been “working” in the spa as the first person to try our new welcome ritual, which we have been aiming to perfect in hopes to give our guests the best experience possible. We want to keep it a surprise, so it seems that you’ll just have to travel to us and experience it for yourself!
Of course we are so looking forward to Christmas Eve at the resort and, for the first time, Demi will be reciting Twas the Night before Christmas to all of our younger guests who wish to join her in the lobby by the Christmas tree. Then, we will go into Acquario to indulge in Chef Phil’s Christmas menu. I know the boys will have the Honey Brined Christmas Turkey Dinner, featuring root mashed potato, stone fruit cornbread stuffing, gravy and cranberry sauce, vegetables and fava beans. The girls and I are craving the Crispy Hazelnut Crusted Grouper with a champagne risotto and a creamy fava bean sauce. And I’m sure that Chris will choose the Slow Roasted Rosemary Salt Crusted Prime Rib with a candied yam soufflé.
Oh my gosh, I just thought of three more gifts I need to grab! Luckily I can just run into the Resort Shop. I’m thinking about either Lilly Pulitzer or Brighton. Maybe I’ll choose a spa gift certificate or the beautiful Pevonia bag that includes samples from the caviar line and when put all together, is at least a 40% better value than when purchasing all of the items separately. I have tried the caviar products from Pevonia a few times and they are so luxurious. We’ll get back to you on Christmas Eve but we hope everyone enjoys their holiday safely surrounded by the ones they love the most. Check back for a video of Demi reciting Twas the Night before Christmas and don’t forget to follow us on Instagram.
