Destination Puerto Rico: Celebrity Wedding Planner Tiffany Cook visits the W Retreat & Spa Vieques

After enjoying a few days at our first location my husband John and I were chauffeured to a small commuter airport where we took a quick 15 minute flight to Vieques (I had the distinct pleasure of being co-pilot on this flight).

John & Tiffany Cook leaving San Juan headed to beautiful Vieques Island Puerto Rico for their stay at the
W Retreat & Spa

The beautiful view on the flight to Vieques

When we landed our W Hotel rep met us and escorted us to the W Lounge, a super cool sexy airport Lounge where we enjoyed a glass of the islands most wonderful Rum Punch while they collected our bags. We were whisked off to the W Resort by their signature all terrain vehicles.

From the moment we arrived the resort screamed modern luxury! The staff and service were superb and the ambiance of this property was notably different and exciting.

My wife Tiffany Cook & I absolutely loved the W Retreat's WOW suite (rightfully named I might add!) When we entered our suite we were greeted with a "Make your own Mojito bar" this was a great start to what felt like a second honeymoon for Mrs. Cook and I!!

WET is the name of the Pool & Bar at the W Retreat and Spa. It is a stunning setting overlooking the Ocean with fantastic mix music drinks and great food. Needless to say my wife
Celebrity Wedding & Event Planner Tiffany Cook
& I spent a lot of time there on our trip.

Above is the AWAY Spa at the W Retreat Vieques. Tiffany Cook & I were treated to a fantastic couples massage after  our morning workout at the facilities full gym. 
Another amazing intimate event space the AWAY Spa Courtyard at the W Retreat & Spa Vieques with breathtaking views!
The Garden Pool at the W Retreat & Spa Puerto Rico was an enchanting space especially at night! This would be a fabulous spot for a rehearsal dinner, small cocktail hour, or vow renewal!! 

The pristine beaches and sparkling blue waters of the W Retreat & Spa were just gorgeous! My husband John Cook and I enjoyed many a Passion Fruit Mojito on this beach as we relaxed in the Puerto Rico sun!! Be sure to use your sunscreen as you won't want to leave these beaches until the sun goes down!

SOURCE is a beautiful place for breakfast. Also offers an amazing space inside for dinner, the food is spectacular!
One of the things as a wedding & event planner that I love about this property besides the beauty and multitude of event spaces is the privacy, especially with the high profile clientele that we represent. For large events you can buy out the entire property or a portion of it and for more intimate events you are still afforded the same privacy being away from the mainland. Your guests can stay and play and you get to enjoy your friends and family the entire time!

The activities at this property for you and your guests are endless from paddle boarding, hiking, fishing, snorkeling,  horseback riding, or kayaking through the Bioluminescent Bay (which is a once in a lifetime experience)! You can rent a Jeep onsite and tour the island, see the wild horses that roam the island, or stop at a private beach or just sit back, relax and soak in the sun at the resort. Either way the W Retreat & Spa is a Caribbean gem that is perfect for destination weddings, social events or an extremely romantic honeymoon or weekend get away and if you are from the states you don't even need your passport!!

Thank you W Retreat & Spa, Greg White, and Starwood Caribbean for the VIP service and an amazing stay at your spectacular and truly unique property, we look forward to seeing you soon!!
