Seawind Beach Club Questions

Recommended Posts

I am staying at Secrets Wild Orchid and having my wedding there on Feb 2nd and since it suddenly just became only the two of us I would like to arrange a special candlelight dinner on the beach after our ceremony. I've heard that the Seawinds Beach Club and Calypso Restaurant next door to the resort does this but I can't find a website with any details.

 

Have any Jamaica brides on here had experience with this? I have also reached out to SWO about having a candlelight dinner at the resort on the beach or one of the gazebos but they still haven't replied to me with pricing or menus to chose from and I don't want to leave it to chance until we get there since we want to have the dinner on a specific day.

@@2ndTimeMrs I found this link searching around. There's a phone number which might help. Doesn't say anything about beach dinners, but if you can call at least you can ask.

Then I found this one. Different phone number so not sure about that, but it looks to be the same place.

Thanks for the links @acw271011 I reached out to a tour operator that booked our golf excursion and the manager of the Seawind Club is off until Wednesday so hopefully once he is back to work we will be able to arrange something. We leave on Friday morning so worst case we will go there our selves (it's next door to our resort) and talk to the manager directly. Once I figure out how to book I will post for other brides that are interested.

For those of you that are interested in dinner at the Seawind Club the best way is contact the restaurant manager, Elvis, directly. (yes his name really is Elvis :) )

 

The restaurant at the club is called Calypso and their phone number is 876-940-9660. I was not able to arrange a dinner there before I left for my wedding in Jamaica but the club was located next door to our resort (Secrets Wild Orchid) so once we got settled in we walked over the restaurant and spoke to Elvis. He was absolutely fantastic. He reviewed the menu with us, made recommendations, and, showed us the wine list so we could pick a bottle in advance and he would make sure he had it ready for our dinner. We decided to not have dinner there on our wedding night but instead to have a special dinner there to kick off our honeymoon phase of the trip.

 

When we originally made the plans with Elvis we were expecting to have a candlelight dinner in the restaurant at one of the more private tables near the pool but when we arrived for dinner Elvis personally escorted us to the beach where his staff had set up a beautiful candlelight dinner for two on the beach. The food and service were both fantastic and I would highly recommend this restaurant for dinner. According to a few locals this restaurant also has the best Sunday brunch on the island.

 

As a side note - I tried making arrangements through our resort before I departed for Jamaica but they told me they don't do that. When we arrived at the resort we noticed that all the concierge desks have advertisements for Calypso restaurant saying they could arrange dinner for you. This annoyed me enough that I didn't even enquire about it (I'm assuming they would get a commission for booking you) and I'm glad I went directly to the restaurant as I'm sure if I had made arrangements through the resort we would have got a generic package deal instead of the beautiful personalized dinner Elvis arranged for us.

    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
