Last year we were enjoying the beautiful Beaches Resort in Negril Jamaica thanks to the great Social Media on the Sand conference. As I sit here looking through photos from our trip, I cannot help but get that urge of needing some ocean waves crash on my feet and soft white sand in between my toes. Heaven! Beaches Resort and Spa Negril was fantastic, make sure you check out my other posts all about our trip, I hope you get the travel bug and reserve your stay soon...you deserve this!
Beaches Negril Resort and Spa Posts:
While Jeremy and I were in Negril we had a lot of US time which was a great way to enjoy our kid free vacation. Last year when we traveled to the Social Media on the Sand conference we traveled with two other couples so we had a lot of triple dates, crazy beach days and evenings of acting like college kids again - oh the memories. But for the trip to Negril we made sure to live up the no kids life. Hello Date Night, Date Day, Date Morning, Date Ice Cream Trip - I think you get the idea.
Date Night at Beaches Negril
For our Date Day, we started with a Glass Bottom Boat excursion that was so incredible. More on that in a future post. After our excursion we decided to enjoy the beautiful ocean for a bit before heading back to our room to shower and freshen up for our formal dining experience at the resort.
Beaches Negril has nine dining experiences that are apart of the all-inclusive resort. A couple of them do require reservations and are considered more of a formal place to enjoy a nice dinner. For our formal dinner we decided on The Venetian.
Discover Northern Italian Fare. Named after the northern Italian city of Venice, guests will find traditional Italian favorites and an inviting, family-friendly environment at The Venetian. Grilled meats, fresh seafood, succulent pastas, and authentic Venetian risotto are served at this beautiful eatery with expansive views of Negril's famed white sand beach and pristine waterscape. The old world décor featuring dark wood accents, stunning candelabra, and crystal chandelier evokes the feel of an old Venetian palazzo dining room.
Dress Code: Resort Evening Attire
Dinner: 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The Venetian was fantastic. We both love fresh Italian food which is exactly what we got. The soft piano music adds so much to this great dining experience. We started our meal with a fresh Caprese dish - no basil but it was still incredible.
I decided on the Pollo Parmigiana with pasta that was so good. It does help that the chef is from Italy! I wish we did two nights at this restaurant because I wanted to try more dishes.
When visiting The Venetian you must try their signature cocktail called The Italian Kiss. WOW! Dessert and drinks in one glass. I was so excited to try this cocktail because the #BeachesMoms were talking about this one for days. It was worth the wait. Frangelico, amaretto, cream and a sugar rimmed glass. Very pretty drink to enjoy after a great meal.
When you visit The Venetian make sure you order your dessert when ordering your dinner as well. These mini doughnuts are to die for and they run out of them almost every night. So, get your order in quick. The best part about enjoying a meal like this kid free was that we were able to eat at a slower pace and really enjoy the experience and company of each other.
Now, when you travel to Beaches keep in mind it is all-inclusive, this means you can enjoy two (or three) desserts guilt free. I give you permission. After our great meal at The Venetian we walked around the resort just enjoying the nice ocean breeze and evening activities. While we were walking around we found ourselves at Cafe de Paris...oh darn. Lucky for us, Cafe de Paris serves ice cream all day long. Jeremy's favorite ice cream was the Rum Raisin - he may have had a couple servings a day. Ha! So, we decided to enjoy a nice ice cream night cap before calling it a night.
The view after our Venetian dinner....breathtaking!
While on vacation make time for Date Night. It is a great way to reconnect, slow down and enjoy one another while relaxing in paradise. So thankful for this time and cannot wait until our next kid free excursion.
Have you had the experience of a date night at a Beaches Resort?
