The Hyatt Experience hosted by the Michael Deltette, director of catering from the Park Hyatt Washington + the fabulous sales and catering team from the Hyatt Regency Chesapeake Bay was the perfect bay-side experience. Situated on 400 acres along the banks of the Choptank River on the Eastern Shores of Maryland, sits a fabulous experience, what we like to call the Hyatt Experience. The Hyatt Chesapeake Bay Golf Resort, Spa and Marina offers pampering, spa treatments, golf, sailing, fishing, swimming and outstanding dinning…all of which a few of the best planners in D.C. got to experience last week! To take you through the day, I thought the best and most appropriate way would be to provide you with a timeline; just how us planners do it!
9:45am: We arrive to the fabulous Park Hyatt Washington
9:50am: Several of us are puzzled over how the high-tech Nespresso maker works at the Park Hyatt, we resort to asking a kind young man for 6 black coffee’s instead.
10:00am: Greeted by the most remarkable Michael Deltette who does role call and leads us to our car for the day.
10:05am: We depart from Washington, D.C. — Destination: Chesapeake Bay!
[along the way, tons of laughs… cookies and chips for breakfast!]
11:30am: We arrive and are greeted by the warm catering and sales team from Hyatt, Chesapeake Bay.
Fresh lemonade + personalized flip flops with our day schedules are waiting for us in the lobby…We kicked off our D.C. heels and adapted right to resort time.
12:00pm: Tours around the resort + a cocktail hour at the breakwater pavilion. Bloody Mary’s + Oysters two-ways got us adjusted right away!
1:00pm: Next stop, more food, but this time, it was interactive! Georgia, oh the fabulous Georgia was peeling fresh crabs to make crab cakes with her trusted team of chefs. [Trust me when I say, these are the best crab cakes….EVER]
2:00pm: We each head to our selected activities for the afternoon. The Chesapeake Hyatt gave planners the option of experiencing their spa, pool or water activities.
Massages are relaxing our hardworking planners
Jet ski races on the water help our planners create balance
Pool side conversations allow connections to create among each other
4:00pm: We depart back to D.C. with the most remarkable experience!
We can’t thank the team at Chesapeake Hyatt enough for a remarkable day. Check back soon on the DW Blog to see a tour of their property and more about their event spaces!
I leave you with this…WE the planners, can have fun TOO!
