We just returned from a vacation in paradise. It was the first time that we travelled with children, parents, and grandparents anywhere - let alone to an exotic country. We decided on a villa, rather than a hotel because we had 6 children who needed places to play together and where we knew that they would be safe. Not that hotels aren't safe, but we had heard good things about villa rentals for families and we decided to take the chance. Our travel agent recommended Golden Clouds, and we are so glad that they did. It is an absolutely amazing place to stay and couldn't be more perfect for large extended-family vacations. The list of amenities is too long to list in this review, but some of the more popular activities for our group were swimming, tennis, beach, volleyball, ping pong, games room, playground and shuffleboard.
The staff immediately made us feel like Golden Clouds was our home, and we lived a pampered life for a week. The meals prepared by Ms. Blossom and served by Jackson were beyond words. We got to know most of the staff and they were always extremely professional, but very warm and charming as well. As an avid gardener, I was fascinated by the "Zen Garden"? and the thousands of plants and flowers on the property. The gardeners were a great source of information and they had all kinds of tips about growing everything from Orchids to Oranges.
We will be going back to Golden Clouds next year for our niece's wedding, and are counting the days before we return to this tropical paradise.
We just had our wedding at Golden Clouds, and it was the most perfect wedding I could have ever imagined. It is a magical place to get married, and the staff are the greatest. There were 20 of us staying at the villa for a week and it was the ideal combination of a vacation and wedding. The wedding service was quite formal and elegant, and it was in a beautiful tropical setting with gorgeous flowers and plants everywhere. The food throughout the week was fantastic and the staff couldn’t have been more courteous and professional. There were four children that were part of our group and they loved every minute of their time at Golden Clouds. The property is like a huge gated park with every type of exercise and recreation equipment that you can imagine. With a large beach, two swimming pools, tennis court, basketball, and gymnasium, there was never a dull moment.
To have our wedding in such a beautiful place was a dream come true. We had a terrific wedding coordinator who looked after everything from the flowers to the music, and so we were able to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings right up to the wedding. My bridesmaids and I had a nice relaxing massage the morning of the wedding while the guys went out for a game of golf. At sunset, we had the wedding on the beach and it was a truly magical experience. After a wonderful dinner, we danced all night to a local band that the wedding coordinator had booked for us.
Having been a bridesmaid too many times, I was quite certain that I wanted a destination wedding. I always liked the idea of spending a week with 20 of our closest friends and family instead of spending the same amount of money for a single day for 200 mostly strangers. If you are considering a destination wedding, I highly recommend Golden Clouds.
