Luxury Beach Resort Sublime Samaná
This was my very first time experiencing the Dominican Republic. Greeted by the wonderful courteous staff of Sublime Samaná, holding fresh passion juice in carved out fruit was more than welcoming and inviting.
Sublime Samaná is a luxury resort located in the Dominican Republic. Surrounded by lavish greenery that extends as far as the eyes can see, this beautiful luxury 7-acre resort has variety of different 26 private suites and casitas to offer. One, two, three, bedroom suites, rooftop views, beach views, or cabana pool side views. There are two on-site restaurants, a spa, gym, tennis and basketball courts, and even a playground to entertain the kiddos.
Sublime Samaná is among some of the few resort/hotel/establishments utilizing the locally grown foods trend and trying to become more eco-friendly and sustainable. Alongside the sandy tropical beaches, lies the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic is abundant in fish and other wild life that is caught and served in the restaurants. Also prepared, are the local fresh fruits that are used and cooked in with the meals, served fresh sliced up, or just mixed and made into some tasty adult beverages.
If you are looking for something more entertaining to do and want to travel outside of the Sublime Samaná luxury resort, you can ask the staff to assist in arranging a variety of different excursions for you to enjoy. Activities such as horseback riding, hiking, beach walking, whale watching, scuba diving, snorkeling, paddle boarding, and so much more. Just ask! Of course, there is always enjoying a nice spa day and getting a relaxing massage at the Coconut Whispers Spa located directly in the resort.
I had the pleasure of staying in one of their two-bedroom suites that came with some fantastic accommodations. My roommate and I had full kitchen, two full bathrooms in each room, a large living room with a television, and a nice size patio that had an outdoor Jacuzzi. Our suite also was fully air conditioned, came with fresh fruit and beverages, and had a top deck view overlooking the courtyard of the resort. Can I just say how comfortable and relaxing my king size bed was also? The sheets were beyond super soft, and I had more than enough pillows to tuck me in to sleep like a baby while so far from my own bed.
I enjoyed some fine cuisines prepared both in the breakfast bistro, and the beach side restaurant that have left me craving and drooling for more. There is something so savory about fresh fruits that are sweet as sugar, and freshly caught tuna served over delicious Dominican style rice that just leaves a person addicted and yearning for more. And yes, now I crave the foods and fruits and look forward to visiting again soon.
While enjoying my massage, I was able to take in the exotic smells and vibes of my surroundings and let me just say that it was out of this world relaxing. The massage therapist was amazing and I nearly fell asleep. With more time, I would have I'm sure.
I would recommend staying at the luxury resort Sublime Samaná next time you find yourself in the Domincian Republic. To find more about Sublime Samaná and what they have to offer, visit http://www.sublimesamana.com/, email@example.com, and @SublimeSamana twitter and Instagram accounts.

Tumwater Vineyard and the Barrel House tasting room.
I received a personal invitation by Tumwater Vineyard (through my Instagram amandamonique1_wanderlust) to come and experience their beautiful vineyard and wine tasting room, the Barrel House. I was beyond delighted to accept the offer and had such a wonderful time spending the afternoon there adventuring around and sampling the wines.
I was more than excited to come out and experience what Tumwater Vineyard had to offer with its wines, vineyard, and of course its amazing location in West Linn. I relished in some wine tasting of the '16 Willamette Valley Rosé, '16 Willamette Valley Chardonnay, '14 Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir, and the '15 Yamhill-Carlton Pinot Noir. I must say that all four of the wines I was able to sip on were beyond delectable. The Chardonnay and red wines fragrant and had overall great flavors. I would say that my favorite was the '16 Willamette Valley Rosé, asit was so fruity, savory, and…
