Back from Beaches Turks & Caicos

We got back on Monday from Turks & Caicos.

It felt SO satisfying leaving snowy Toronto for beautiful turquoise waters and sandy beaches.


We stayed at the Beaches Resort – and fell in love with the gorgeous scenery and multitude of activities.

The resort was all-inclusive – with 19 restaurants to choose from, we had lots of yummy meals. I especially enjoyed the Teppanyaki at Kimono’s restaurant (bottom left photo).

The lobby coffee machines were genius – unlimited lattes at the press of a button – and much yummier than Starbucks too!

initially booked a room in the Caribbean Villa  (bottom left pic) but
were upgraded to a 1-bedroom suite in the newly opened Key West Villas
for the second half of our trip.

I loved hanging out on the balcony – so
relaxing (getting cuddles from my son while he still lets me!).

We had an amazing time – we feel rested and recharged – and so happy to be back in snowy Toronto in time for a White Christmas!

Hope you have a wonderful Holiday season with your loved ones!
