Yet another Azul Sensatori site visit 10/31/08
Posted 04 November 2008 - 03:14 PM
We arrived at Azul Sensatori about an hour late due to confusion from the tour company that was in charge of our transportation. Carolina and Gilberto (from Lomas) were waiting on us. We basically had a quick tour of the resort and optional wedding sites. The first guests were there for the wedding on 11/1/08. They had a section of rooms open for them, one pool fully operational and 1-2 restaurants fully ready. They were completing finishing touches to the common areas, however it looked like the rooms still had a ways to go. I'm sure they are moving very fast though.
They were in the process of building the arch for the sky wedding. They had all the glass up and the walls to cover the AC units. It looked really nice up there.
We were able to eat lunch at the Zocalo Resturant. They had a preset menu of 4 courses. The food was amazing. FI and I started off alone in there, until other guests came in. I think we may have been the first to eat there though!
I feel like our visit was rushed due to being late. I was hoping to nail down some planning, but we were referred to Fabio for all the details.
I think we are wanting to do the beach ceremony. They had just placed the arch. They said they had some palm trees to move to make more room. I'll be honest the space did look really cramped. Hopefully they will work something out.
To me the beach looked sandy, but I didn't go down and walk along the water. I know there was some concern that the beach was rocky. I will say though that the water looked very brown and agitated. Hopefully that is just from excavation and it will settle down. Looking further out, it was a very beautiful color.
They showed us a structure on the beach that would be used primarily by the activities instructors for yoga, etc. It is a great area for a small dinner or standing cocktail. I think we might go with that as opposed to a poolside cocktail hour (many options are available).
Lastly we are trying to decide between the outside area of Zocalo or the courtyard in the middle for our private dinner reception.
It depends on a number of things for us, # of guests, dj vs. ipod, buffet vs. plated dinner.
I will say this is one thing that I am disappointed in is the lack of options for the reception. I don't prefer to be on the beach all night, Zocalo may be too small, courtyard way too big for possibly 30-40 guests.
I'm sure one of you will come up with the perfect solution for that.
So that was my visit. Please let me know if you have any questions or if you would like to see larger pics. I can send them to you.
The next post will be just some other pics from the resort. I was only allowed to take pics of "finished areas".

Tons of beach beds for casita guests
Each casita section has a private pool with swim up bar (bar tender included)

Sorry you didn't get to spend as much time at Azul Sensatori as you would have liked.

Sorry you didn't get to stay at the resort. EDR photos look really cool. You should post them on their thread too.

That's too bad about your rushed site visit! Did you find out when they are building the gazebo for the other ceremony option?
And I know I'm obsessed, but did they mention anything about the Beach Butlers?
