For those of you that don’t already know, I entered Marriott Resort’s, Resort to Romance beach blogger contest. We started out as 1 of 86 entries then made it to the top 10 and then to the last two. The final two couples got to choose their Marriott Caribbean resort destinations and we chose Marriott’s Frenchman’s Reef in St. Thomas Virgin Islands (click picture to visit their website). Stunning isn’t it?
It’s been a few months since we won and we would have traveled sooner but the resort was in the middle of a remodel so they preferred we wait for that to be complete as to have the staffs full attention. It’s been so hard waiting but will be totally worth it.
We have been talking via email back in forth with the great people at Marriott to plan our flights, room reservations, etc. and today received our final itinerary for our time in St. Thomas. So many fun things on the list list to do like a couples massage at the Frenchman’s Reef Lazule Spa, a sunset dinner, sea turtle encounter, sea lion swim and sea trek at Coral World plus snorkeling in St. John and more.
We will be blogging daily over at the Marriott Frenchman’s Reef blog and keeping up with you on our Newton’s Travels Facebook page and on Twitter. I’ll be doing a recap of our trip here on this blog once we return.
In the meantime, before we start our adventure, you can catch up on the past beach bloggers, Ryan who vacationed in St. Kitts and Becah who went to Aruba. I really enjoyed following them on their Marriott Caribbean adventures. And it won’t be long before we our sharing our own adventures in St. Thomas, Virgin Islands.
We hope you’ll follow along!
Angie, I can’t believe it’s taken me so long to visit your website. Absolutely love it! I was just reading your post about your trip to St. Thomas and then I realized I stayed there many years ago and before countless hurricanes that have come through sense then. Congratulations on winning too! Keep up the great work and I’ll be checking out your blog on a regular basis.
