Ylang Ylang Beach Resort - Montezuma - Hotel Photography Tremento

About this project

Every now and then I get to work with a client that tops my own expectations. The Ylang Ylang Beach Resort in Montezuma is an example of those. I remember walking up their driveway and having to pinch myself: this is work?

Let me quickly introduce you to this place. Imagine a couple of beautiful bungalows and cabins in the jungle, surrounded by the most colorful flowers, with a clear blue ocean right in front of them. Palm trees swaying in the wind, hammocks hidden away in small sacred corners, a waterfall pool. Sunshine, howling monkeys, iguanas. And then on top of that just the most gorgeous stretch of beach along the whole spot.

I have truly never stayed at a property that was more in peace with nature than Ylang Ylang. All cabins are literally surrounded by the jungle, some of them even prettier than others. It’s a wonderful place to stay. I honestly can’t imagine anywhere being more zen. The included breakfast and dinner that come with each stay are also delightful. They are a la carte and offer options to each audience – vegan, gluten-free, vegetarian or just craving sweet. There is no way you leave this place unsatisfied.

So what did I do?

I went on a mission to capture a set of great pictures for the resort for them to use on their own website and social media, and wrote an article for their blog. Besides that, I featured the resort multiple times on my Instagram @trementomedia. This way I helped them increase their reach while at the same time providing them with valuable content.

About Ylang Ylang Beach Resort

The Ylang Ylang Beach Resort was found by Lenny and Patricia Lacono. They bought the property back in 1970. First, they used the piece of land to generate some income, earning a living selling dried fruits. Then at some point they opened a healthy restaurant, El Sano Banano, in the centre of the small Montezuma. Over the years they slowly developed the Ylang Ylang Beach Resort.

Lenny and Patricia have now retired, but Ylang Ylang Beach Resort and El Sano Banano continue to be family businesses. They are run by their children and spouses, Moraya, Emma and Syska.
