Girls Getaway to Vero Beach
Situated along Florida's Atlantic Coast 135 miles north of Miami and about 110 miles Southeast of Orlando, the quaint seaside town of Vero Beach is surrounded by 26 miles of pristine, unspoiled beaches and the Indian River Lagoon. Nature and culture are treasured and preserved here, as well as immaculate beaches, superb fishing and water sports, and small-town ambiance. With world-class dining, boutique shopping, and an abundance of natural and cultural resources, it's no wonder that Vero Beach was twice named by "Great Towns of America" as one of the "100 Great Towns in America." Visitors can relax on miles of picturesque beaches, or choose sports activities all within just a few minutes of local resorts.
Swimming, surfing, boating, deep sea fishing, scuba diving and sky diving are just a few of the wide range of exciting recreational opportunities awaiting you in Indian River County. There are 17 challenging golf courses, three open to the public. In addition, there are tennis courts, hiking and biking trails, riverside camping and seaside picnic facilities available for year-round enjoyment...a lot to choose from including the Atlantic Ocean in the backyard.
Quietly nestled in Vero Beach is Costa d'Este Beach Resort, an exquisite world-class retreat surrounded by white sand beaches and lush natural views. Specifically designed to pamper, relax and inspire, celeb owners Emilio and Gloria Estefan's exclusive oceanfront haven was our home away from home as my gal pal Kelli and I got to experience the resort's new BFF (Best Friend Forever) Package
, which celebrates everything that epitomizes quality gal pal time.
As we started our weekend adventure, Kelli
and I laughed hysterically as we unknowingly dressed in identical travel outfits (navy and white striped maxi dresses, silver sandals and tan leather purses). Upon arrival, we checked in and made our way to the poolside bar where we met up with Rebecca and Zoe. After visiting with them and a few cocktails, we made our way to our amazing ocean view suite to find chocolate treats in a graham cracker sand crust....so cute! Once we changed from looking like twin sisters to our swim suits, we found our reserved poolside loungers and ordered lunch: Ahi Tuna Ceviche, Grilled Salmon BLT and Beef Sliders....all was amazing and tasted wonderful with cocktails.
While poolside we experienced the resort's Splash Stylists, a program officially launched on Memorial Day. This team of beach and pool attendants are dedicated to care for guest's every sun-worshipping need. The Splash Stylists offer a host of services including frozen grape delivery, wireless call buttons for prompt food and beverage service, sunglass cleaning, a variety of sunscreens and beach reading to choose from, beach cabana set up and more.
After a few relaxing hours in the sun (and
catching up on our celeb gossip magazine reading), we made it to the resort' spa
for our 50-minute Couples Massage. We selected our scent, Euphoric & Rejuvenating, and Robby & Ilene escorted us to the room where they provided amazing massages with Lava Shells. Thank you so much...and the champagne finish was perfect!
After massages, we got ready for dinner at the resort's new restaurant concept, The Wave Kitchen & Bar
, an ocean-front dining space with gorgeous views of the Atlantic Ocean.
The restaurant offers a menu directly sourced from local farmers, fishermen and artisanal purveyors. It features classic selections, as well as select Cuban specialties developed by Costa's owners, Emilio and Gloria Estefan, for their Estefan Kitchen cookbook. We had the paella....incredible!!!! After dinner we returned to our room to find chocolate cigars and a soft, pink turtle in bed to snuggle with.
We woke up the next morning to watch the sun come up over the Atlantic Ocean and watched people stroll the beautiful white, sandy beach below our balcony...so peaceful. We ate breakfast (yummy made-to-order omelettes) and made our way to the beach for some sun
time in the cabanas. While on the beach, you can also rent gear for kayaking, paddle boarding and snorkeling. We spotted GiSi, the resort's poolside foot masseuse, and walked back to the pool. That day, nothing was better than enjoying a mojito poolside while getting a foot massage! Pure bliss!
It was the perfect way to end our Girls Getaway to Vero Beach! Many thanks to the Benchmark Management team and Costa d'Este for hosting us on a much-needed getaway. We will be back!
