HONEYMOONS in the CARIBBEAN
Since 2001 we have been helping plan perfect honeymoons to luxury included adults only resorts throughout the Caribbean. We are Sandals (adults only) & Beaches (couples & families) luxury all included resorts experts. Our entire staff is Certified Sandals Specialist & Peter Blum is a member of elite Sandals Chairman’s Royal Club. With our knowledge, we work closely with honeymoon couples to pick the right island, resort & room category to meet each couples individual dreams. After the honeymoon resort is planned we continue to help plan Spa treatments (including couples messages) and off property tours for couples to venture into the beauty of each Caribbean Island. AND, there is no cost for our service.

Premium Resorts respects the need to give back to the beautiful Caribbean countries we love so much! We are proud to share that as a small business, we believe in “CSR” Corporate Social Responsibility. Our office gives back to the Caribbean through the IRS 501c3 approved Sandals Foundation helping the Caribbean’s community, education and environment.
Peter Bum received the Sandals Foundation worldwide philanthropic award in 2010 and in 2014 was appointed a Sandals Foundation USA Director.
We are also very proud to say that each of our travel advisors participate in Sandals Foundation’s “Care for a Kid”” Scholarship Program” to help ease the school costs for students and families by “”adopting”” a high school student for $400 a year. Ask us about our students…we love to talk about them!!
2. How did you find your way into weddings?
By the time our agency found our way into selling destination weddings in 2001, we were already experts providing personalized travel services. At our yearly Sandals certification workshop, we learned that 25% of all engaged couples already preferred an exotic location for a romance filled wedding. A stress free wedding with all the details planned and implemented by a team of specialists at home and at the resort just made sense to us! As a result, we were among the first travel advisors to sign up for a Sandals Wedding Specialist training. We are now known as WeddingMoon Specialists. A WeddingMoon is a term coined by Sandals that combines a wedding and a honeymoon. We each attend a yearly certification workshop to refresh our expertise as well as learn what new options the Luxury all Included Sandals Resorts has added to the already list of amazing designs, inclusions, locations, and specials.
The bottom line is we love helping couples plan the most magical time in their lives. It’s a happy time and who doesn’t enjoy working with happy people to make their every dream come true?

Peter, Anthony and I want to say thank you so much for helping us create our dream honeymoon. We enjoyed the Sandals La Toc Resort, it was a perfect mixture of night life and fun for us. We visited the Sandlas Halcyon Resort and it seemed a little too low key with fewer activities but it was still beautiful. We also visited the Sandals Grande St. Lucian it was beautiful and I would have loved to spend more time there however, we stayed so busy at the La Toc we didn’t have many days left! Gordon’s was our favorite restaurant, it was beautiful at night but I bet it was even more enchanting during the day. The “stay at one play at three” was one of our favorite features of our Honeymoon. The restaurants at the La Toc Resort were wonderful, we enjoyed the Japanese Hibachi and the Sushi Bar (myself a little more than Anthony he’s not a big sushi fan). We ordered a snack every afternoon from Neptunes, a pepperoni pizza and a plate of calamari, we must have eaten 15 pepperoni pizzas during our stay. The Pub had wonderful fish-n-chips (I never eat tartar sauce but there’s was delicious)and they had a very good short rib plate. We ate at Neptune’s a few times since they had a different dinner and lunch menu. The Piton was great we had the surf and turf and ate with friends there and had a wonderful time. Having a butler was incredible and very necessary during our stay. The first two days the phones were not working and it was very difficult to reach our butler if we could at all. After those two days we enjoyed having them tremendously. We had a day butler and a night butler both were very attentive. We enjoyed the information and booking of excursions and reservations the most. My favorite part of having a butler was ordering a mid afternoon snack to the pool daily. Having them pick us up for dinner was crucial due to the mountainous terrain and my high heels. 🙂 The first night we were lost without them but after the phones were fixed it was GREAT! The butler suite also gave us a voucher or discount to compensate for the two days that we were without butler service. We signed up for Sandals SSG program while we at the resort for the come back soon promotion that they had at the resort. We have decided that traveling with Sandals is so wonderful we will be visiting the Sandals resorts from now on. Again thank you so much for your help and suggestions! We had a wonderful time! Sincerely, Jessica and Anthony
We are having a destination wedding at Turks & Caicos with our wedding date being right around the corner on 10/17/15. We started the planning process for this wedding about 10 months ago and we couldn’t have done this without the help of Peter Blum! He has made the planning and organizing of our WeddingMoon so stress free and simple. Peter was always available when we needed him and always willing to go the extra mile for his couples, especially his brides. If you want an honest and reliable travel agent, choose Peter with Premium Resorts of Cook Travel. You will not regret it and will be so happy. Thank you Peter for all your help and support!
Wow. We had a BLAST at Sandals, Grande Antigua. We just loved it! Everything was perfection. The honeymoon suite was wonderful and spacious. We LOVED having the private pool and hot tub. We enjoyed having breakfast brought to us and set up by the pool. Our butlers were so friendly. They drew us a bubble bath, stocked our fridge, made sure we had everything. We really appreciated that they reserved us the best and shadiest spots at the beach and pool. The drinks were amazing. The food was good. We especially loved Soy Sushi Bar for evenings and Mario’s for breakfast. We basically lived at Cafe de Paris. We enjoyed Kayaking, Stand Up Paddle Boarding, and the spa. We ended up buying some photos from the Sandal’s photographer. I wasn’t thinking I would, but the guy did such a fantastic job we bought several on a CD to bring back. Please feel free to add us to the Frequent Flyer program for future discounts. We loved our Sandals stay! Thank you for all you did to help us with the perfect honeymoon. Katie
Sally Lewis-Collier, our Travel Agent and owner of Premier Resorts of Cook travel, designed and implemented a flawless wedding and honeymoon for John and I! Speaking to Sally from New York was like talking to a friend I might have known for years. She understood what we were looking for in a resort and selected LaSource in Grenada as the ideal spot for us. It was. Sally made sure that every detail matched the vision we had in our minds. Our beachfront walkout was less than ten feet from our door and faced the gazebo where we exchanged our vows. The staff at LaSource knew who we were as soon as we exited the taxi from the airport. The experience that Sally brings to tourism is unbeatable. Sally knows the Sandals properties like the back of her hand. Dinners were planned, tours suggested, and navigation of the property explained. Kudos to Premier Resorts and the experienced staff. Thank you for taking the stress out of planning this exciting moment in time for us.
If you want a travel agent who cares about capturing the “little moments” to help you select your honeymoon, this is the travel agent for you. Peter Blum was a dream to work with. We knew he would help select the right honeymoon location for us because my now-brother-in-law used him for his wedding a few years prior. Peter was such a calming force helping us make our select the right resort for us. His helped us fit our budget into getting the best room category for our Sandals Emerald Bay Honeymoon . Peter is the pinnacle of professionalism and positivity an amazing Sandals Honeymoon expert. So glad we placed our trust in Peter to capture our special week!
I always knew I wanted to get married on the beach and when I met my fiancé, he told me he had the same desire. When we got engaged, I started looking at The Knot for a Travel Agency who was an expert in Sandals resorts and destination weddings. We needed to learn how to plan a wedding on a beach without ever seeing it before. That’s when we found Peter & Sally at Premium Resorts of Cook Travel. We 1st communicated through my knot account and then meet with Peter. We knew we had the right Sandals expert when he pulled up to our meeting in his F150 Pick Up wrapped in Sandals and Beaches. We spoke to him for 10 minutes and knew he knew the Sandals resorts. With his help, we selected Sandals La Source in Grenada. Peter & Sally held our hands through everything and ensured the planning was seamless. We truly received the VIP Treatment. Our Wedding at Sandals La Source Grenada was truly magical.
