Coffee Talk Monday… Destination Exuma

February 21, 2012

This week we are going to take you on a little journey to one of the best kept secrets in the Caribbean; the island of Great Exuma in the Bahamas.  I was invited by a good friend and industry colleague, Josh Friedman, Elan Artists,  to experience the property of Grand Isle Resort & Spa, for destination weddings, events, and clients looking for the perfect spot to honeymoon/vacation.  I truly was blown away by the beauty of this tropical paradise.  The Villas at Grand Isle Resort are pure luxury, with marble bathrooms, fully appointed gourmet kitchens, granite counter tops, spacious living rooms with access to the terrace, overlooking the most gorgeous turquoise water I have ever seen.  On property is an infinity pool, poolside bar and restaurant, and 24 hour fitness center, although I must admit it is hard to run on the treadmill when the white sands of the beach await, it made running outside in February a pure gift.  The pace of the island and laid back nature of the people put me at ease the minute I stepped off the plane.  It was hard to do anything but relax during our stay at Grand Isle.  I hope you all will have the opportunity to visit this hidden gem and enjoy a week of destination inspiration and our insider’s guide to the island of Exuma!
