Hyatt Carmel Highlands

I know that I’ve talked about our wedding before, but I didn’t mention much about our accommodations for our wedding night. We stayed at the same place we got married, Hyatt Carmel Highlands. I feel like I shouldn’t have slacked so much because they were nothing short of amazing.

I don’t know if I was just in a post-wedding haze, but the room we stayed in was absolutely dreamy. I made sure to fully enjoy a relaxing bath and then cozy up by the fireplace. We were greeted with chocolate covered strawberries and champagne (a must for the first night of your honeymoon, right?) and it set the perfect tone for the rest of our getaway.

My favorite thing about this hotel is that it boasts a lot of the same amenities as a larger hotel in a more private-boutique package. It includes all of the standard amenities you would expect, with the added bonus of complimentary mountain bikes. I would very highly recommend visiting the Pacific’s Edge Restaurant for dinner one night, it was the best food I’ve ever had, hands down.

Overall I would give this hotel a 10/10, and not just because it’s where we got married. We returned again for our babymoon in 2012 and experienced the same warm and wonderful service.
