My wife and I spent our honeymoon on sister island, Martha's Vineyard, and as a surprise gift to us someone planned an overnight on Nantucket at the White Elephant Resort. Let me say, it was the absolute best experience we have ever had.
A week before our stay, the vacation planner at the resort contacted me to see if I needed any arrangements or reservations. I went ahead and made a dinner and spa reservation.
From the reception right when we walked in the door from the front desk workers, we knew this was a special place. Upon our arrival we were informed that we had been uprgraded to a harborview suite. We we delighted with this news and upon entering the room we were speechless - it was beautiful. Awaiting us was a box of chocolates and personal letter from hotel management. Amazing all around!
And the experience didn't end there. Dinner at Topper's was fabulous - and the maiter'd was great. Cool use of technology as well - they use iPads for the wine lists. Food was excellent and we didn't feel at all rushed which my wife and I love when we are at restaurants.
Turn down service was great and we had a great, restful sleep on the amazingly comfortable bed. The room was spotless, and the staff was quick to help with anything we needed.
We also got vouchers for the spa, so we previously booked a couples massage. It was one of the best. Highly recommend it!
All in all, this was one of our favorite places ever, and the staff made our honeymoon extra special. I would recommend this resort to anyone looking for excellence in quality, service, and overall experience. Thank you hotel management and staff for an amazing honeymoon and for running an amazing resort! We hope to return someday!
