Life can be overwhelming with busy schedules, overly demanding customers and tight deadlines. Having a full-time job and working long tedious hours can mentally and physically wear you out. For most, vacation comes around once a year and I am almost sure you can agree that those few weeks off are never enough to smooth out those achy knots and kinks in your body and have you skipping to work on Monday morning.
I am an advocate for taking ‘alone and rejuvenation time’ when it is needed and I got the opportunity to do just that! If you follow me on Instagram, you would have seen my stories flooded a couple of weeks ago with vids and pics of my staycation at True Blue Bay Boutique Resort which also happened to be my birthday weekend. This mini-vacay couldn’t come at a better time!
If you’re looking to have fun with watersports, great food and relax in a serene, garden-like laid back environment, then this resort is for you. Located only a 10 minute drive from Maurice Bishop International Airport and 20 mins from the town of St. George, True Blue Bay Boutique Resort welcomes you to forget about the bustles of life and bask in uninterrupted serenity.
My room was one of the Tower Suites which, I must admit, I did not get enough time to truly enjoy. The highlight of this suite is the tower situated just above the room which is a perfect setting to view the sunset and have a romantic evening dinner.
I love that my room was spacious. Lots of room to move around and brightly coloured with wooden and bamboo furniture. If you like a more home style type of accommodation, this room is a winner.
This suite also has a very charming bathroom with a vanity area, bathtub and awesome shower. Can I tell you how well-lit it is? The pic below is unedited and was taken at night just before I went to dinner.

All my meals were absolutely delicious. I had the option of staying in and having room service or dining at the resort’s brightly coloured, Caribbean themed restaurant on the dock, Dodgy Dock.
If you choose to have breakfast down at the restaurant, you can help yourself at the buffet and watch the chef whip up a tasty omelet with ingredients of your choice or you can settle down, take in the cool sea breeze and enjoy a la carte service.
Make sure to leave room for dessert because they are the best. I usually don’t eat banana bread, but I was encouraged by one of the waitresses to try it, especially since it has chocolate in it. My goodness, I was pleasantly surprised. Each bite went down with all the love that was put into it. It was soft and very moist, not too sweet and had the right amount of chocolate to distract me from the taste of the banana. Make sure to try it when you get there.

The first thing I did when I got to the resort after checking in and before comfortably settling into my room, was to head over to the resort’s Blue Haven Spa to receive some much needed self-care.
There are a range of spa treatments to choose from: facials, massages, body treatments and more. I chose two treatments. The first was the Signature Facial which is done using organic herbs and oils. Massage therapist, Kisha, did an amazing job. Her hands are gifted and she is very easy to talk to. She also gave me a mini neck massage which relieved me of a knot she found from working so hard for the last few weeks. She made sure to keep me relaxed and worry free as she explained every step of the process.
My second treatment was a Ginger Detox Soak. Listen, if you want to get your skin glowing and silky smooth, then I recommend this treatment and plus you get a view of the ocean and resort grounds while you soak. I could have done this twice a day for the duration of the weekend. It was heavenly and definitely rejuvenated my skin.

Another highlight of the weekend was my few hours out at sea. I most definitely would not have been able to live with myself if I did not get to kayak and sail for at least 10 mins. Noah, who was an experienced sailor and also very kind and helpful, aided me to make sure I came back in one piece. I am definitely doing this again!
There are lots of other activities you can do at the resort. See HERE for a list of things to do.
Lounge and relax:
If you’re into sea adventures much, then you can enjoy lounging by the pools.
A very interesting attribute of this resort is its beach pool which I fell in love with. I am such a beach lover and since there isn’t much of a beach at my doorstep, I thought this was perfect. Sand,
sea water and lounge chairs.
Don’t ask me why I’m in the pool with my coverup. It just happened. 🙂 Also, if you’re in model mode and want a great vibrant colourful pic, the bright hues on these huts nested behind the palm trees will made a great background.
The night would not have been special if I did not have my sister with me. The best company! The food was nothing short of excellent. It was BBQ night, so we had chicken breast and BBQ ribs.
Since it was my birthday, along with three other persons that night, live singer for the night Jenny J, sung ‘Happy Birthday’ to each of us. That was followed by a rich dark chocolate cake on the house (Yum!) and a glass of champagne.
My weekend was full. Birthday celebration with water sports and the warmth and friendliness of the staff, especially Kaylee, contributed to a spectacular weekend. Kaylee was super helpful. She made sure I was comfortable and had everything I needed. I did not get a pic with her, but thank you much Kaylee and to the rest of the staff at True Blue Bay Boutique Resort!
