If there is one thing that Stampin’ Up knows how to do, it is to spoil it’s top achievers! This company knows how to put together an incentive trip and is the absolute best at pulling off all those little details.
Anyway, I wanted to share some more photos from my trip to Thailand courtesy of Stampin’ Up. From the moment we arrive, we are treated like royalty. Stampin’ Up rented the entire Angsana Laguna resort for us (so only Stampin’ Up families and staff were on site)! Here are some photos from the resort:
First we were welcomed with our name on our door. It’s really fun to walk down the hallway and find all the names of my fellow achievers and friends!
This was the view from our balcony
This was our room
This was outside one of the restaurants (Baan Talay)
I loved all these adorable little lanterns. They were really beautiful when it was all lit up at night.
The entire resort was set in the middle of a lagoon, so there were fun little “rivers” and bridges throughout the resort.
Here’s one of the cute bridges.
The resort was huge! We were still discovering new places a day or two after we arrived. That could have been because we were still in a jet lag fog, too, but regardless… the resort was BIG.
There was an amazing pool on the property, that swirled it’s way through the resort and ended at this big pool complete with a beach! The sand actually continued into the water so you could really feel like you were on the beach.
Speaking of the beach… there was that, too! You couldn’t swim in the water where we were (I heard you could if you walked a ways down the beach), but we did have a delightful dinner buffet on the beach one night.
This is one of the restaurants (Bodega Grill) all lit up at night. As a side note, we had breakfast one morning right at that table behind the front pole in the middle. 🙂
This was the cool swim up bar… we had a cocktail one afternoon while swimming around. It was quite delightful!
So clearly, Stampin’ Up selected an amazing hotel for us. They also covered our meals for us (in addition to the flight and hotel costs for two!). We had a grand buffet every morning in one of three different restaurants… the Marketplace was my favorite. Here are some photos from that buffet.
A lovely welcome to us each morning… all carved out of watermelon!
This was the top of the fruit table, with the two carved watermelons
This was the fruit buffet
This was the other side of the fruit buffet… I think it was mostly salad-type options. I didn’t eat from here as I’m not a salad-in-the morning kind of person. (smile)
This was the hot food station. We had an assortment of things to try from bacon and sausage, to more “meal” type stuff like rice and curries.
This was one of the egg stations
This was the bread and pastries section
This was one of my favorite spots… at the very end was the waffle and pancakes station (complete with chocolate sauce and whipped cream) and then at the closest end here was the juice station. I became completely obsessed with guava juice! The fresh squeeze grape juice was pretty amazing, too.
So that amazing breakfast was included every morning thanks to Stampin’ Up. Plus, we also had the hospitality room every day. There was always a daily treat of some kind, plus an endless stash of candy (both American and Thai) and beverages. It also had cute little couches and lounging areas for us to catch up and chat with fellow demonstrators. I’ll share those photos in a separate post as this one is already photo heavy. I’ll also share our pillow gifts with you — but that will have to wait until after the new holiday catalog is live – since we received lots and lots of new catalog goodies!
If you’ve ever thought about becoming a demonstrator, now is a great time. Today is the last day to take advantage of the amazing starter kit deal!
