Rachel Roy and her daughters, Tallulah and Ava, enjoyed vacation in the Tropics last year and the experience was better than Disneyland.
“In Bermuda, my daughters and I could go on a lovely walking tour to learn the history of the island,” Rachel says. “At the Grotto Bay Beach Resort you walk into a cave, and there are these floating beds on top of water that you lie on to get a massage. My daughters literally asked if we were at Disneyland.”
The Grotto Bay provides the ultimate experience to its guests. Golf, water sports and diving are three of many activities that residents can enjoy and the location’s spa offers more than ten massage options that last anywhere from 30 to 80 minutes. The resort caters to newlyweds with its Honeymoon and weddings packages, and it is also a great spot for families.
In addition to residing at the Grotto Bay, Rachel and the kids also spent time at Frankfort Villa in Jamaica. Much like the Grotto, Frankfort gives guests a myriad of activities to enjoy while vacationing. Private tennis lessons coupled with activities created just for kids make the hotel a go-to spot for families.
“Along the property, I got to see a mahogany tree Winston Churchill planted, and there’s a black-and-white picture of him when he first planted the tree,” says Roy. “When I planted my own nugget of a tree it was a reminder that time is constantly moving, and we can choose to be happy or we can choose to be stressed. I think happiness is something you can work to achieve.”
The stylist goes on to talk about the serenity that vacationing brings. “I’ve always believed that your own life is your responsibility, and you can’t wait for something or someone to make you happy,” she says. “The idea of escaping to an island is really just waiting for something to take you out of the reality of life. Instead, I try to create a sense of balance every day, even if I’m not traveling.”
Ava and Tallulah are Rachel Roy’s daughters with ex-husband Damon Dash.
