Romance Travel Specialist

I am an avid traveler and passionate about my business. It brings me personal joy and satisfaction helping couples enjoy the process of planning a Destination Wedding and/or Honeymoon.

I married my best friend in June 2015 and we are living our dream in sunny Arizona. I have lived all over the West Coast and lived in beautiful Southern Oregon for over a decade. I have 3 wonderful children, and 2 fur children.

I enjoy living my life to the fullest by experiencing the best this world has to offer whether it be a great meal, a performance, or traveling around this amazing planet.

 

Why stress about your Destination Wedding and/or Honeymoon when I can help you?

There is nothing as special as your wedding day and honeymoon. You will look back on this day for the rest of your life. I love helping couples make their dream Destination Weddings and Honeymoons a reality without extra cost or stress.

I am a Sandals Certified Specialist, AM Resorts Master Agent, and Karisma Travel Partner. I know the resorts and locations that fit your needs and desires. Tropical destinations like the Caribbean, Mexico, and Central America are my specialty but I have planned Destination Weddings and Honeymoons all over the globe.

When you work with me you are the priority. I don't work for the resorts, I work for you. Let me make your dream a reality, contact me now!

 

Our 20th Anniversary Trip was MAGICAL!

Cindi did an AMAZING job at putting together our 20th Wedding Anniversary Trip! We so appreciated her taking over the planning for us. All we had to do was show up to each of the special meals and events that she scheduled for us. We had an absolutely Magical time and couldn't have done it without Cindi! We will use her every time!!!!

Trip of a life time!!!

Reviewed By Nicki - Phoenix, AZ | Traveled to Bora Bora ~ French Polynesia ~ South Pacific
We had the pleasure of working with Cindi from Awaken Travels on our recent Bora Bora adventure. Cindi was incredible. From start to finish her dedication to her job is obvious. She was very helpful in the planning of our trip from the flights, transfers, to the exact bungalow we wanted to stay in. We really didn't have to worry about a thing knowing Cindi had taken care of everything for us. She is also incredibly prompt with her correspondence. No question went unanswered and being new to traveling out of the country myself no question was ever unimportant to her. Cindi was patient, kind, and very fun to work with. From start to finish she made it very clear she was only ever a phone call away. She really is like having a friend in the business. We highly recommend Awaken Travels for your next adventure. Cindi made the whole process fun, enjoyable, and stress free.

Let Cindi do the planning!!

Reviewed By Mrs. P - Peoria, AZ | Traveled to Montego Bay ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Cindi was fantastic to work with. She was very responsive any time we had a question, and very knowledgeable about the various areas we were considering and the resort chains themselves. She truly partnered with us and worked as an advocate for us to make our Jamaican honeymoon terrific. She was able to secure better pricing than anything we tried independently. It was so nice to turn it over to her and know we were getting the best results. We are actually planning another little trip with some friends and just contacted Cindi to work her magic for us again.

She Took Care Of Everything

Reviewed By Sean - Chandler, AZ | Traveled to
We wanted to go to an All Inclusive - Adult Only - Resort in Jamaica. Way too many options for a non traveler like me to know what is good & real vs. a touristy rip off. Not only did she show us the "Good Places"... But she got EVERYTHING lined up. She got us freebies, and discounts, and most importantly: She monitored our travel. We were never "alone" during our transition into and then out of complete and total relaxation! Well done Cindi!

Wedding/Honeymoon

Reviewed By Wedding/Honeymoon dream - Dickinson, ND | Traveled to Ocho Rios ~ Jamaica ~ Caribbean
My fiance' and I planned a destination wedding/honeymoon in Ocho Rios, Jamaica with Cindi. We could not have planned a better location without her, her knowledge of the locations was invaluable. The Butler service was fantastic, the food and drinks were plentiful and amazing and the Customer Service was superb.

Cindi was highly professional at all times and answered any questions quickly and promptly easing any of those pre-wedding jitters :-)

We will definitely use Cindi again in the future!

Honeymoon to Jamaica

Reviewed By Stacie - Virginia | Traveled to Jamaica ~ Caribbean
Cindi was very responsive and helpful. She helped us plan our honeymoon to Jamaica. The only down fall from the trip was not having seat assignments together on the flights.
I would recommend this agent to my family and friends
Cindi Sanden responded:
Thank you so much for taking the time to review our services Stacie. I am sorry to hear you were disappointed that you were unable to sit together on your flight. Because of your budget for the trip your reservation was for Basic Economy Flights and unfortunately when you book these budget flights you are unable to pre-select your seats. It was my true pleasure helping you plan your Honeymoon to Jamaica and I wish you joy and happiness in your marriage and life.

Unforgettable honeymoon and Birthday trip

Reviewed By Mark and Heather - Gilbert AZ | Traveled to Fiji ~ South Pacific
My new wife and I learned of Awaken Travels by researching on line. Cindi met with us at our earliest convenience and we discussed what we were looking for and she had just returned from a trip to resorts in Fiji. She worked with us to iron out all the details of our trip including flights, coach transfers, boat transfers, resorts stay, meal plans, and special occasions. It was our honeymoon and my 50th birthday in one trip so she took care of arranging special items like champagne a birthday cake and a message in our room. Very nice. She followed up afterwards. I couldn’t have asked for anything more. She provided a full itinerary before the trip and arranged for any changes to seats on the airlines. Thanks see much Cindi. Use Awaken Travels for your next vacation or destination getaway.

Anniversary Trip to New York for Macy's Parade!

Reviewed By Rob - Gilbert, AZ | Traveled to New York City ~ New York ~ USA
I wanted to take my wife on a bucket list trip for our 25th wedding anniversary. She has always wanted to go to the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York. I researched travel agents and found Cindi at Awaken Travels. She was excellent in every way. We very much enjoyed our trip and had our expectations exceeded. Everything went as planned. Cindi even emailed the hotel regarding this being an anniversary trip. The hotel gave us something extra because of that. We would definitely recommend Cindi at Awaken Travels. Rob and Rhonda.

Simply the Best!

Reviewed By Kim - Chandler, Arizona | Traveled to
Cindi is the best. She looks for travel that fits your schedule. She found a flight that would get me home quicker for the same price. We want to take a river tour in Europe at some point, and she gave me wonderful information for my husband and I to read and look over. She knows this is a "dream trip" and still researches possibilities for us. I would highly recommend Cindi for ANY travel needs.

My Key to a Great Vacation

Reviewed By No Nickname - Arizona | Traveled to
I am a do-it-yourselfer but that no longer applies to my vacation plans. After spending over a week trying to find a workable combination of airfare, hotel, car and Disney Land tickets I finally cried uncle and set out to find a travel agent. I reached out to 10 agents and no one came near the responsiveness and understanding of exactly what I was looking for except for Cindi Sanden at Awaken Travels. Cindi gave me many opportunities and wound up saving me over $1,200 (in addition to a lot of headaches) for my trip. She is now my one and only travel agent. I will never try to do it on my own again with her in my corner!

Awesome, romantic 10 Year

Reviewed By gabet - Gilbert, AZ | Traveled to Saint Lucia ~ Africa
Cindi was great to work with. She planned our 10 year anniversary trip to St Lucia. We priced it out prior to contacting agents and not only did she beat our best price, she was very thorough and thoughtful. We stayed at Jade Mnt for a few nights and Cindi wrote a personal letter to the GM of the hotel explaining our trip and requesting them to "take care" of us. When we arrived we learned that we were upgraded to one of their expansive pool suites, basically a $1000 upgrade. Thank you Cindi for all the help, we will be in touch soon for our next trip. :) Gabe and Cindy

Japan Honeymoon Extravaganza

Reviewed By Amanda - Gilbert,AZ | Traveled to Tokyo ~ Japan ~ East and Southeast Asia
Cindi did an amazing job getting us the best places for our honeymoon in Japan. She worked with us to find a great place in our price range with the perfect local. She called to verify our reservation with the hotel and got us a nice upgrade for our stay. We ended up on the special Artist floor at the Park Hotel Tokyo that had a view of the Tokyo tower and you could even see Fuji on a clear day. Cindi was a breeze to get a hold of and responded to our emails very quickly. She also found us sites with options to add on side trips or extra excursions. Definitely recommending her to friends and family
