We normally travel planning our own activities, driving a rented car and going around the destination but since we have been in the Maldives in all inclusive resorts we seriously consider all inclusive resorts in some destinations depending on what we are looking for.
Before we tried an all inclusive resort we thought we would be bored to be in an hotel complex all days during our stay and we were surprised of all the activities and options available to us.
On our stay in Grand Bahamas, we had a day pass at Wyndham Viva Fortuna Beach Resort, the typical colorful bracelet day pass. We are not very used to bracelet mode but we need to endulge ourselves once in a while.
Most of the inclusive resorts offer not only stays with the whole inclusive package but they also havea available day passes that allow you to enjoy all the resort facilities for a day without having to stay in the resort.
All inclusive at Wyndham Viva Fortuna beach
The all inclusive program is very complete. For guests it includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, snacks and beberages.
Beverages include alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks and the à la carte restaurants at dinner time.
There are many activities included such as non motorized water sports, all day animation activities such as choreography dancing, pool activities and organized games for kids. There are also cooking classes and a disco bar open every night.
We enjoyed the good weather and snorkel in the morning, the crystal clear water its amazing and we took the time to swim and sunbathe in the hammocks available to guests on the beach.
I am a book addict so I am always looking for good spots to read and I found one by the main pool. They have this pool beds that are spacious and comfortable with big cushions that allow you to be relaxed and overlook the sea and the pool. And when i finished a chapter I would go for a swim and go back again to my book story.
We didnt spend the night but we had the chance to visit the rooms, they have three types of room categories: standard, with sea view and flora or garden view.
The sea view rooms have a priviledged view and modern decoration with 2 queen beds or a king bed. Perfect for families or groups of friends travelling together.
We enjoyed a day pass and we got to the resort by 10am and enjoyed the beach and sat to at the pool bar that offered hamburguers and cocktails during the time the restaurant was not yet opened for lunch.
The main restaurant is called Junkanoo, it is a buffet restaurant with plenty of options for all tastes. We had lunch there and I was gladly surprised by the healthy offer of salads of different kinds, grilled vegetables and cut fruit.
Junkanoo offers every night a different kind of cuisine, so you have different flavours and options every day. No one can get bored!
They have 3 à la carte restaurants that sadly since we had a day pass until 5am we were not able to try since they are only opened by dinner time.
They have Viva Café that is a fusion cuisine restaurant, Bamboo that is an oriental cuisine restaurant and Viva la Pizza that as you might have guessed its and Italian restaurant with specialtes of pasta and pizzas baked into an authentic forno di pietra.
I was impressed by the facilities, if you like to join activities while in the resort they have a wide offer every day. They have a theatre with capacity for more than 500 people where they offer plays and shows during the week.
Included in the all inclusive package you have windsurfing, kayaking, catamarang, tennis, archery, introduction to diving in the pool, bike riding, paddle board, volleyball, stretching, table tennis with an instructor, paintball and they also have a gym.
They have a very interesting activity that i havent seen anywhere else, you can have a lesson of trapeze with an instructor. I was really scared but I want it to try it since all your fears need to be overcomed.
Sadly for me and my fear, when we had our appointment with the instructor it started raining and we couldnt do the lesson…But now I have a new objective, I will have an encounter with a trapeze soon, it’s a challenge now.
