Gingerbread Village

The holiday season at 9 Beaches was a ton of fun! Our holiday activities helped guests get in the Wintery-spirit (the pleasant weather made some guests feel as if it weren’t wintertime at all!) One evening everyone gathered in the lobby to make gingerbread houses. Our pastry chef made some delicious homemade gingerbread. Here is a picture of several of our guest's gingerbread houses. Aren't they fancy?

Plan Your Wedding at 9 Beaches

The following is a letter from a bride-to-be who originally had plans to have her destination wedding here at 9 Beaches. We thought it said such wonderful things about 9 Beaches Preferred Wedding Coordinator, Kay-Annie, we wanted to share it with everyone! We sure are sad that Julie decided to go with the “mountain” scene but still wish her the best wedding she could imagine. For every bride-to-be who is pondering a destination wedding – choose 9 Beaches in Bermuda! You’ll be glad you did!

Dear Rachel and Kay-Annie,

I apologize profusely for not getting back to you earlier! My fiancé and I have actually decided to go with a mountain setting. 9 Beaches was the only beach setting we were looking at because we like it so much, and if we were going to host our wedding weekend at a beach setting we absolutely would do it there! But in the end, we decided to stick with our most natural inclination which is the mountains.

We have and will continue to recommend 9 Beaches and hope to make it there again ourselves, soon.

I'd also like to note that my fiancé and I were both extremely impressed with Kay-Annie, her demeanor, responsiveness and thorough communications. In our search process we spoke with a lot of places and few could compare (in fact, the reason I haven't sent you a note sooner was because the place we've decided to have our wedding in Colorado is so NOT as efficient and responsive as you are, Kay-Annie, and we haven't finished the contract yet--aye!)

Thank you both so much for all the time you put in to our inquiries. Best of luck in the future and Happy Holidays!
