Sweet home Alabama

Here are the photographs from our trip to Point Clear, Alabama. We stayed at the Grand Hotel Golf Resort and Spa which was recently added to the Autograph collection.

“Autograph Collection Hotels brings the art of storytelling to life by hand selecting hotels that are rich in craft and character, design, architecture and unexpected back-stories. Created for travelers who approach life like a master class and seek memorable and immersive travel experiences, no two hotels or resorts are the same. Each offers unique perspectives on hospitality, design, and service that leaves an imprint with each stay. Every Autograph Collection hotel celebrates artistry that surprises, inspires and delights and experiences that are exactly like nothing else.” Mariott

It was an absolute delight staying at the resort and we spent most of our time lounging and exploring the various things the place had to offer.

We spent the first day exploring the vast resort grounds and strolling on the lagoon walkways and cycling. This resort is home for a vast variety of flora and fauna and these photographs are proof of that.

We spent the next day by the beach drinking, reading chilling.

On the last day,(a Sunday) we decided to go out and explore Fairhope, Alabama. Though we treated our tummies to some yummy food, Sunday is a bad day to explore the small town. Most of the shops are closed on church day. In the evening, we treated ourselves to dolphin spotting and beautiful sunset hues at the resort. This is my idea of a perfect weekend getaway.
