Of course, living in Minnesota, hot, tropical getaways are a popular topic and always seem to be on everyone’s mind around here. Aside from that unique aspect of Huatulco, another one of its draws is, of course, the beaches. So if you’re looking for a new destination to escape to, consider Huatulco and experience this unspoiled hideaway for yourself! Kingston, Dec 19 (IANS) The sunny island of Jamaica in the Caribbean is among the top favourite locations for destination weddings and has in recent months captured the imagination of the Indian community in America. The string of all-inclusive beach resorts in Jamaica have hosted a number of Indian-style weddings in the past year.
Not too far from America’s southeast coast, Jamaica is a most sought after wedding destination during the dreary winter months.
In December, Kerry and Sam Singh, the newly-elected Congressman from the Michigan state assembly took their wedding vows at a beach resort in the Montego Bay area.
Just a couple of weeks before the Singh wedding, some members of the small Indian community in MoBay, as Montego Bay is known locally, were contacted by a wedding planner with an urgent request.
Another wedding party from Michigan was better equipped when they reached Jamaica a couple of weeks later. All-inclusive holiday resorts that offer three meals, unlimited snacks, drinks and beverages and other facilities for a set cover charge suit American wedding groups and many of them have geared up to cater to the requirements of an Indian wedding. Wedding planners at resort hotels have learnt to cater to a variety of requests, from supplying mehndi services and Indian chefs to Indian singers, often calling on the Indian community for help in sourcing the services. Prominent businessman and former president of MoBay Indian Association Rajkumar Sablani explained that Mobay like the other Jamaican towns has a small but well-knit Indian community that is willing to help when required. This is no surprise, for the Alps have been entertaining winter tourists since 1864 when a group of Englishmen visited St Moritz ‘out of season’ as a bet. More recently, tour operators have gone to enormous lengths to broaden the sport’s appeal and entice those who prefer flopping on sun loungers to frolicking in the cold. Here your every whim is catered for, every turn signposted and every movement recorded; great, if you live in a cave for the rest of the year. Two seasons ago, a cable car linked the resort to nearby Zinal and you can now lap the area, skiing the Piste du Chamois, which descends from Zinal’s highest point back to Grimentz, several times in a morning, skiing fresh lines every time. I relished the same sense of adventure last season in Madesimo, an Italian resort north of Lake Como. Andermatt now has a large new development on the old army barracks but with no increase to the lift system as yet. Twenty five minutes by car from Val d’Isere is the delightful resort of St-Foy, a complete contrast, a relatively new resort with chalet-style houses, small and friendly bars and restaurants and easy access to the most stunning off-piste skiing areas. There is a relaxed, laid-back feel that one would not experience at some of the larger resort destinations. In true Mexico fashion, the beaches are beautiful and worthy of being featured on a postcard! At least four Indian weddings took place in the famed Montego Bay area, the playground of the rich and the famous, in November and a similar number of weddings are scheduled for the next few months.
They had hired Sachin Gupta, a DJ and dhol-player well known on the Indian festive circuit in the Detroit area, to handle the Indian music during the wedding festivities.


The luxurious beach resorts have learnt to offer special facilities to make the great Indian weddings a grand success. Indians in Jamaica came from different parts of India and retain close ties with their families back home.
In its infancy, skiing was the preserve of the aristocracy, who holidayed only in the most chic resorts — the likes of Courchevel, Cortina and St Moritz — perilously hurling themselves down the mountains wearing plus-fours. And it worked: by the 1960s a quarter of a million Brits were skiing every winter and purpose-built resorts were springing up everywhere. But I don’t, and I’ve had it with expansive, highfalutin resorts where you pay €30 for a burger yet are treated like muck. Picturesque Valloire in France, for example, is overlooked by skiers who tear past the turn-off, eager for the Three Valleys, while Grossglockner in Austria’s East Tirol has a modern ski area that was deserted when I visited. Click for savingsSecret Harbour is one of the best St Thomas resorts for couples and families who want to relax and have fun in a tranquil island setting with all beachfront accommodation and superb amenities. Their average temperature is a delightful 82°F with very little rain during the winter months. An avid traveller, he took 15 months off from his political and professional activities to travel around the world. It was for a big wedding planned for mid-November for a couple of doctors from New Jersey with a guest list of over 300. The wedding took place over the Thanksgiving weekend (Nov 24-27), with Sachin Gupta’s dhol-playing kicking up a storm in the island known for its calypso, reggae and rasta music. Yes, the first flurries of winter which arrived recently provoke excitement, and the lure of the mountains is still strong. Over time, these expanded and connected up to other resorts, creating mega-ski areas spanning vast valleys. Experts can tackle the classic Canalone route, which begins at the top of a narrow, stomach-turning gully. I realise now that I’d become blinkered: obsessing over the kilometres of slopes, stars tacked on to the side of hotels and the number of apres-ski bars. Places like Engelberg and Andermatt are reasonably unspoilt too (although that’s likely to change).
Probably won’t go back for a while as the partner bust a leg off-piste coming down the Gemsstock on day two.
And further to that point, if you’re a parent looking for an adults-only getaway, try the all-inclusive Secrets Resort & Spa. It was natural for him to choose an exotic location for his wedding and guests from Michigan and India attended the beach wedding early in December. Under the impression that it was a dholak that was required for a ladies sangeet function, the one used for the weekly satsang was shown to the wedding planner, who sent a picture to the groom’s parents. The community has grown to the size that “most of the necessities of Indians living in Jamaica are now available. Add to this its superb quality accommodation, convenient lift systems and sophisticated cuisine and you have the recipe for a first class resort.
What’s lacking, however, is the sense of discovery, anticipation, and of reaching dizzying new heights.


A hallowed place with powder on its doorstep, where some of the world’s best freeride skiers hang out harmoniously alongside the locals. I agree though that the attraction of skiing is getting away from the crowds and enjoying the mountains in a relatively unsullied way. Intimate setting features 48 beachfront condominiums that are privately owned in four 3-story buildings that are all ‘just steps from the sand. This is Grimentz, a stone’s throw from Verbier, yet worlds away from the champagne-quaffing toffs. Dinner at Dogana Vegia, a kitsch 340-year-old converted customs house at the edge of the village, is a must. The mountains offer the perfect escape from reality to a white world where time stands still. Ski touring is the best way to achieve that of course, or you could just throw money at the problem and go heli-skiing.
We had to import from Miami, but now most things are available locally,” Sablani told IANS.
The only sounds in its narrow alleyways are the mooing of cows (cloistered for the winter in the village) and the odd clunk of ski boots. Local specialities, such as cappellacci pasta with asparagus, are accompanied by a vast array of regional wines, climaxing with a gluggable (but headache-inducing) 16 per cent red.
These resorts together comprise an exciting, extensive ski area, with breathtaking scenery and superb on and off mountain, good value for money, wholesome French fare. So eschew the likes of Verbier, with its honking hoorays, Courchevel with its fur-clad Russians, and Val d’Isere’s exorbitant Dom Perignon. Other amenities include a freshwater pool, tennis courts, fitness center, gift shop, ATM, guest beach chairs and umbrellas, on-call masseuse, Free Wi-Fi, Free parking, full customer service team, concierge, new phone app for St Thomas attractions, plus a coordinator for St Thomas destination weddings and honeymoons. No passport is required for US Citizens to visit Secret Harbour Beach Resort and the US Virgin Islands. Its glittering scenery, efficient lift system and warm friendly Swiss charm is waiting to be discovered by the adventurous Lillehammer, Norway Although brought into the limelight by the Winter Olympics in 1994, Lillehammer has returned to its former sheltered glory. However, a holiday to this world class resort promises to bring an all encompassing experience with superb skiing, more non ski activities than you can shake a stick at and superb value for money quality accommodation. Montgenevre, France Montgeneve is a pretty alpine resort located on the French-Italian border within the vast Milky Way ski area.
With a small town and a large ski area you will find the slopes extremely quiet and in excellent condition making it an ideal getaway from the notorious ski resorts Rusutsu, Japan If you are looking for a powder filled ski holiday, then Japan is the ultimate destination. Even though Rusutsu is one of the popular ski resorts in Japan, the vast expanse of backcountry and tree runs means there is plenty for every skier and snowboarder on the mountain to enjoy.
