It’s that time again. And it happens every four years. You’ve probably prepared for it, spent countless hours doing your research and finally figuring out what’s important to you. It’s Election Day. Today, you’ll have the opportunity to exercise your democratic right to vote. And because you’ve been working so hard to decide whom you’ll chose to lead our great nation, we think you should reward yourself…with a Caribbean vacation.
After your ballot has been turned in and you feel accomplished, it’s time to start thinking about where you’re headed and how you’ll pack. It’s your choice who you’ll vote for and it’s your choice which Caribbean destination you’ll head to after, but here are a few recommendations that could really rock your vote.
Off the Radar: A Private Presidential Vacation
An escape that’s fit for a president and offers a high level of privacy (think Camp David) is the perfect getaway option for someone looking to completely unwind. While there are plenty of small, private resorts to choose from, Sivory Punta Cana is one of our favorites.
Sivory Punta Cana features 5-stars of seclusion and ultimate luxury. It’s an AAA Four Diamond Boutique hotel, equipped with a private beach and 8,000-bottle wine cellar. With 55 luxury suites all with a long list of amenities, Sivory Punta Cana is sure to pamper.
Spend your days bouncing between the strip of private beach or cool, infinity-edge pool. When you need to satisfy a craving, take your pick from one of the three top-notch restaurants, including Gourmond, the only AAA Four Diamond-rated restaurant in the Dominican Republic. After your sophisticated palette has been satiated, finish up the evening with after dinner wine and a stop in the Cigar Lounge or head to Sybbar for some spicy music and signature cocktails.
There’s even an option to arrive by helicopter…how Commander-in-Chief of you.
A Romantic Getaway: Reward Hard Work
There’s no denying that after the pressure of the weeks leading up to election season are over, you’ll need a break…as will your running mate. Plan a vacation that celebrates one another, brings you back stronger and ready to embrace the country’s leadership.
Couples Sans Souci is a Jamaican paradise that only accommodates couples, making it one of the best options in romantic getaways. Spread out across 35 beachfront acres of cliff-side, Couples offers lush pathways for romantic strolls, private coves, with one special for au-naturel sunbathers.
Your mornings can be spent in the curative mineral pool or mineral grottos hidden around the resort and the afternoon lends itself to some couple time at the swim up bar or one of the five restaurants for some signature Jamaican cuisine. Known for its jerk chicken, the Beach Grill is a perfect place to stop for an afternoon snack. And as the sun sets and the Jamaican twilight takes over, make sure to attend the Tuesday-night Beach Party or Friday-night Starlight Gala for dinner, dancing and cultural entertainment.
Don’t forget to book an excursion to Dunn’s River Falls, have a drink at Margaritaville or take a glass-bottom boat tour. Finish your day with a signature peppermint-sea-twist body treatment and see why Travel + Leisure has named this resort one of the best spa hotels in the Caribbean. Jamaica’s Couples Sans Souci is built for all couples alike and is sure to embrace the love and passion you’re seeking when on a couple’s getaway.
Win a Few Benjamins: A Gamble of a Holiday
Aruba is a destination where any presidential candidate would want to spend their R&R …especially if they’re really looking to let loose and take a gamble. The Westin Resort & Casino, Aruba is an all-inclusive resort that compliments lady luck and utter relaxation.
Located on the world-class Palm Beach, the Westin Resort & Casino, Aruba mixes the world of high-end beach vacays with a world-class casino. There are 300 slot machines, a long line of black jack and roulette tables, among other casino favorites that give you the chance to bet big and win – a definite benefit to any vacation.
When you aren’t spending your time submerged in a deck of cards and deciding what your odds are, there’s a free-form pool and Jacuzzi, ideal for some ultimate sun bathing. There are also five restaurants to choose from with casual beachfront meal options to steak and seafood specialties, not to mention an extensive wine list and two hotel bars to serve you ice cold beverages.
If you need a break from your high rolling ways, a trip to Tierra del Sol Golf Course is just right down the road. It’s the only championship 18-hold golf course of its kind on the island. So while you’ll make plenty of bets inside this high-end casino, you have the satisfaction of knowing your next vacation to the Westin Resort & Casino, Aruba is a hole-in-one.
As this monumental day comes and goes, we’d like to remind you, of course, to get out there and vote. It’s your voice and you should use it to shout from the rooftops. After you submit your ballot, put the political smack in your back pocket temporarily and ask not what can your country do for you, but what where will you vacay next?
