“Our 50th Anniversary in Fiji”

What a place to spend our wedding anniversary! We adore our “Wyndham”, in Denarau Island, Fiji.

On our arrival, with 8 of our family and some friends, we were thrilled to see our beautifully decorated bed!! I hated removing all of the gorgeous flowers before we could retire! The unit was amazing, and the views to die for. We never tire of visiting this place!

Our 21st Wedding Anniversary Trip to Rotorua, NZ

Rotorua railcruising | WorldMark South Pacific Club by Wyndham

Rotorua’s newest attraction – railcruising!

Time is one of those funny things that creep up on you. Before you know it, the first of your children have moved away from home and your youngest is about to begin their final year of high school. So to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary, my wife and I after 9 years of WorldMark Ownership took the family on our first trip overseas, spending 12 nights in amazing Rotorua, New Zealand. Holidays have changed a lot from the days where a bucket and spade would keep our two children occupied for an entire day at the beach. Thankfully the friendly staff at WorldMark Resort Rotorua lined us up with activities that would entertain our two teenagers while still giving Mum and Dad some time to relax and unwind.

Celebrating Our 40th Wedding Anniversary

On Oct. 24, 2011 Johnny and I renewed our vows at Graceland Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a memorable and unforgettable experience for all of us, especially for me and my husband, as this is the first time I’ve ever gone to the USA.   Continue reading

Happy Anniversary!

Wedding anniversary at WorldMark Golden Beach ResortMy wife and I recently celebrated our 22nd wedding anniversary at Golden Beach Resort. From the minute we stepped into the foyer, we felt like we were coming home as this was one of the first resorts we stayed at upon joining, what was then, Trendwest. We were delighted with the refurbished foyer, the Titanic staircase-style chandelier, red guest lounges, and very modern fountain. The ever-friendly staff treated us to a bottle of wine for our anniversary, which was a lovely touch.

We have stayed here many times with our kids since joining back in 2000, enjoying the kayaks, tennis courts, restaurant, pool and spa. This time, we left the kids at home, enjoying romantic strolls along the foreshore, our wine and cheese platter on our eighth floor balcony, all the while soaking up the wonderful atmosphere that is the Pumicestone Passage. As the sunset, the spectacular views across to Bribie Island faded, only to awaken the night-lights of Caloundra. Continue reading

WorldMark makes travelling great!

I have been reading mailbox in the Destinations Magazine and have been impressed by the comments made which reflect the real joy and satisfaction experienced by WorldMark Owners.

We have been Owners since 2001 and have also experienced the same satisfaction, but I wonder how many Owners, when they use their membership, get the most benefit available. Continue reading

The Denarau Experience

We have been regular visitors to this unique South Pacific Resort of WorldMark Fiji since we became owners six years ago. Our eight days of pleasant stay at this magnificent location this time were really spectacular for various reasons. Continue reading

A holiday we waited 25 years for!

Over the years of raising a family on a small income, the longest time my wife, Bree, and I had gone away alone together to a motel or Resort style destination was for 2 or 3 nights. In recent years we had talked about planning a holiday for our 25th wedding anniversary, especially knowing all our kids were becoming fully independent.

In Jan this year our silver anniversary came and went but no holiday. Continue reading

Our 10th year Wedding Anniversary

This is my story of our memorable family trip to the Gold Coast, staying at the Wyndham Surfers Paradise Resort.

In June 2011 my husband and I celebrated our 10th year Wedding Anniversary on the Gold Coast.  This is was also a special trip for us as it was our first family trip using our points and viewing for the first time the kind of accommodations we had invested in.  We decided on the Gold Coast because we were taking our kids with us and at the same time we would do our rounds on the theme parks.

It was also a good excuse to escape the chills of NZ Winter weather that was slowly creeping in… so the welcoming of the warm Gold Coast sun was such a blessing.
