Just got home from the perfect vacation and have all the thanks to give to Nanda with Beach Bum Vacations. My husband and I were looking for a unique honeymoon destination that offered sunshine and beaches, outdoor adventure, culture, somewhat of a nightlife/great restaurants…and fit within our budget. After throwing several ideas back and forth to one another, we were unable to come up with a destination that "fit the bill" and were slightly stressing! So we reached out to friends for recommendations on good travel agencies, and were referred to Nanda with Beach Bum. From that point forward plans fell right into place, completely worry free! First off, Nanda knew to ask the right questions, enabling her to suggest a destination that offered everything we were looking for – St. Lucia! She was extremely thorough with all of her feedback, always responded in a timely manner, and really just nailed the perfect place for us. She made planning this trip so easy, which allowed us to be able to sit back and just get excited about our upcoming adventure. Nanda was a complete pleasure to work with and I will recommend her services to everyone! The honeymoon was truly fantastic! We would not have changed one thing. Perfect amount of relaxation, outdoor adventure and partying down. We are so happy we took the helicopter ride from the airport to the resort (suggested by Nanda); great way to kick off the trip with an exciting adventure! It was so cool to see the rainforest, volcano and beaches from an aerial view, and at the same time avoid the long, windy drive! The resort was perfect for so many reasons…. Many different and delicious restaurant options, rowdy and relaxing pools, great beach access, extremely friendly staff, guests were all on the same page as us, and overall just a great atmosphere. Our room was also perfect… we loved having the indoor and outdoor lounging options (and even though I originally wanted an uncovered balcony, I am glad we went the route that we did because it rained a few nights and was fun to still be able to sit outside with a bottle of wine, listening to the waves, hanging with the hubby). The butler service was incredible... Donovan and Denver were both such great guys and provided outstanding service, it was a real treat having room service for breakfast on our balcony most mornings/lunch delivered poolside/late night food, the unlimited bar definitely came in handy, and it was just nice having them there to answer questions, check us in for our adventures, make our dinner reservations, get us checked in & out of the resort, etc. The few adventures we participated in (zip-lining, Land & Sea, and the sunset booze cruise) were all a total blast and made for a very well-rounded trip. Again, we cannot thank Nanda enough for her recommendation of St. Lucia and for all of her help with organizing the trip. It is a vacation we will remember for the rest of our lives, not only because it was our honeymoon but because it was seriously just that wonderful.
