First I want to say HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY BARBADOS!! Barbados was a TIME! I’m almost speechless about my experience. First of all, you know I’m greedy so let’s talk about the food first. I was having so much fun that I didn’t even get to REALLY experience the food outside of the resort. That’s just one of the many reasons why I have to go back! I did get a chance to try Chefette at the airport which was pretty good. I always love fast food way better outside the states. I have been to so many resorts in different Caribbean islands and the food at Divi Southwinds Beach Resort was by far the best food I have ever had on a resort! Sooooo, so, so good! From breakfast to lunch and dinner, everything was good and ALL INCLUSIVE. I love that word!
The rooms were pretty average with a living room and balcony. On this trip, I was never in the room so it was perfect. The St. Lawrence Gap is a known hotspot in Barbados and is right in the backyard of the hotel. You can literally walk there. The funniest thing ever is that my other half actually ran into Majah Hype (My Brooklyn people know) the first night we got there. I enjoyed my stay at the resort, the staff had great vibes and were accommodating and friendly.
If you’ve been keeping up then you know that I was actually there for a wedding. I want to cry just thinking about it because it was truly BEYOND beautiful. Big shoutouts to Nandi and Kenyatta on their union! #RoadtoRegis was a hit and the first destination wedding I attended this year and ever.
Being able to travel with my other half and some of my amazing friends from college made it all that much better. It was so good catching up while enjoying some fun in the sun. I am so happy when I get to have beach days and on this trip, I got to have plenty. Not only was there beach access on the resort but some friends and I still made our way to Sandy beach for food and excursions. I had too much fun and the GREAT news is I WILL BE BACK!
