Anniversary Staycation at The Henderson – Day 1
Updated: Apr 7, 2021
Finally checking in at The Henderson is something we’ve been looking forward to all year! I’ve raved about their Salamander Spa and attended a few events – but we were so ready to stay as guests over night and get the whole experience. By far, everything about The Henderson is truly top notch. Honestly, our experience and their standards currently surpass Disney’s now (and that’s a big deal in my book)!
First stop upon check-in: Salamander Spa! 🙌 60 minute Tropical Stone Massage followed by time in the Himalayan Salt Suite. Bliss! 🙏 I’ve had many massages in my life, but have never had one like this with hot stones. Wow – what a game changer! (Don’t forget to ask for your Love Locals special offers!)
Views from our Spa King Gulf Suite 😍 So dreamy being able to see this from the bed and bath tub!🙏 We could see The Rooftop Bar, fire pit and Henderson Park Inn from our room.
Such a sweet surprise! The Henderson gifted us champagne, chocolate covered strawberries and a note for our anniversary!
We sipped drinks at The Rooftop Bar before dinner. Loved their Autumn Harvest holiday cocktail! A crocheted shawl my grandmother made for me kept me cozy.
Anniversary dinner at Primrose! You may recognize this restaurant from the Chef’s Table experience we recently did. We tried new things this time and oh my gosh.. every single dish – from the sushi to dessert – was exceptional!
Cranberry Cooler was also such a yummy winter cocktail!
Best Crunchy Shrimp Tempura Roll we’ve ever had!
Organic Chicken Breast, Roasted Garlic Gnocchi, Natural Jus (This dish was outstanding!)
Hickory Smoked Pork Belly, Mango, Chutney, Spicy Yellow Mustard (I call this one Savory Smores. SO GOOD!)
Surprise Anniversary dessert from Chef – Bread Pudding! So delicious!
Can’t believe we have now been together for longer than half of our lives – 16 years as a couple! Being able to dress up, walk around the resort decorated beautifully for Christmas, listen to the Christmas music playing and enjoy outstanding food and drinks for our anniversary was such a treat!
