A Fairytale Ending at Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta

Happy #WeddingWednesday from Dreams Villamagna Nuevo Vallarta! Love is definitely in the air here as we share with you the romantic love story of two of our guests that began, where else, at Dreams Villamagna!

Located on the beautiful Banderas Bay with spectacular views of the Sierra Madre Mountains, it’s no surprise that Dreams Villamagna is the perfect place for love to bloom.

Flashback to February 16, 2010: Giles was enjoying himself at the annual Mardi Gras celebration with fellow travelers from Canada. After the evening had kicked off and the festivities were in full-swing, fellow guests – Maria, along with her sister – were introduced to him by the hotel’s maitre d’. Maria was seated next to Giles and, as they say, the rest was history!

Maria and Giles made the decision to spend the rest of their lives together and we’re so thrilled that they decided to celebrate their union at Dreams Villamagna on their five-year anniversary on February 16, 2015!

Below are some beautiful photos from their romantic day:

Experience and Discover Tulum!

One of the most magical parts of any vacation is the opportunity to discover and enjoy a new part of the world. Dreams Tulum Resort & Spa is perfectly situated in the history-rich town of Tulum in the Riviera Maya, a spectacular area that has been inhabited for the past 700 years.

During your stay, you’ll have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a truly authentic experience and discover the Mayan culture prevalent in Tulum, which was first known as “Zama,” also known as the “City of Dawn!” This untouched part of the Mexican Caribbean, located a short drive south from Playa del Carmen, offers its visitors the opportunity to discover magical and uncrowded places such as the ancient ruins of Coba and Tulum. Adventure-seekers will also be able to enjoy activities such as swimming in the crystal-clear waters of cenotes–naturally-formed underground caves–and interacting with nature at the nearby Xel-Ha waterpark and a nearby golf course! But that’s not all you’ll discover…

A #DreamersWIN Honeymoon Surprise

At Dreams Resorts & Spas, we provide families with the vacation of their dreams. This year, we decided to give back to our fans and set out in search of people who truly deserved a vacation. We are very excited today to announce the latest winner of our #DreamersWIN campaign, on the heels of Wounded Warrior Mom Pamela and three deserving Moms featured on Chicago’s Windy City Live; congratulations to bride-to-be Laurel S.!

After Laurel’s sister, Kyle, shared their family’s story with us, we knew we had to step in to help her give her sister the surprise of a lifetime. We were incredibly moved by this family’s strength and resilience and honored to be able to grant Kyle’s wish of an all-expenses-paid honeymoon  to Dreams Resorts & Spas for Laurel and her fiancé.

Dreams Resorts & Spas can’t wait to give Laurel (left) the honeymoon of her dreams, all thanks to her sister Kyle (right) for sharing their story!

Kyle shared with us that three years ago, her father passed away. At the time, Kyle was in grad school and they also had a brother starting college. According to Kyle, Laurel was “the rock in the family who has said the most by saying the least” and “stepped up financially to get us through the rough days.” Laurel is getting married on September 5, 2015, but she and her fiancé Tom have no plans for taking a honeymoon. Kyle wants to send her off in a big way to “thank her for providing for us when our hands were tied.”

After everything this family has been through, we couldn’t be happier to make Kyle’s dreams of a honeymoon for Laurel come true. Do you know someone who truly deserves a vacation? We want to hear your stories! Nominate someone you love to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Dreams Resorts & Spas. Share you story here, because #DreamersWIN!
