About the Essence Festival:

The ESSENCE Festival is the nation's largest annual gathering of African-American musical talent featuring an unprecedented weekend of cultural celebrations, ESSENCE Empowerment Seminars and nightly musical performances. The Festival has featured some of the biggest names in entertainment including Prince, Beyoncé, Diana Ross, Mary J. Blige, Lionel Richie and more! Birthed in New Orleans in 1995, the ESSENCE Festival is held every Fourth of July weekend, bringing more than 400,000 attendees to the Crescent City and adding more than $1 billion to Louisiana's local economy. In 2007, presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton made special appearances at the ESSENCE Festival. In 2008, CNN reported live on-site throughout the weekend; partnering with ESSENCE to develop and tape a co-branded special presentation "Black in America: Reclaiming the Dream."

Quite often a woman is called a Diva based just on the way she carries herself. She's usually pretty stylish, or fly. She has designer shoes, handbags, and is always very well put together physically. But what does she look like on the inside? What is her thought life like? How is she feeling, emotionally AND physically? The Well Diva Lifestyle is a way of living well on the inside AND the outside. Join us as we create a life that is happy, healthy and fly.

I had a great time, met some wonderful ladies that I’m sure will be life long friends, we are actually in the process of planning our next trip. The hotel accommodations were disappointing, especially for the amount of money spent. Other than that, overall it was a fairly good trip.

We had fun, the food was amazing except for Mulates. I enjoyed trip

I had a wonderful time! I was nervous meeting new people from other states - But.... Renee , Gina and Phyllis made it so easy. The accommodations was very nice and who know we had the "hot hotel" with the cast of Queen Sugar and others. Our meet and greet was a big relaxation point! My next trip is with a roommate and I met no one that didn't get along. Nicely planned and hopefully, if they make new arrangements for Essence 2020, I'll be in the next group. I'm looking forward to my next trip in Sept, and I encourage anyone to try it and come Live your Best Life!
I had an amazing time with the divas. I enjoyed the activities that were planned for the group. The hotel was quite comfy, but the parking was expensive. Can’t wait for the next trip with the divas. Developed many lasting friendships!!! Kudos to the organizing team Renee, Gina and Phyllis!!!
Overall I enjoyed the Essence of Fly Girl 2019 Trip. POSITIVES: The group of women on the trip were GREAT. I believe I will be maintaining friendships with several of the women. Gina and Phyllis were fantastic. Whenever I had an issue Gina was on top of it. They both were extremely friendly and engaging. Thank you ladies you were wonderful. The location of the hotel was prefect and was within walking distance of many events. NEGATIVES: The cost was too much for what came with the trip. For $900 the ONLY thing included in that price was the reception meet up, that came with wine, cheese, bread and a variety of meats and a T-Shirt that wasn't a high quality fabric. EVERYTHING else was an add on, and if you wanted to participate you had to pay an additional charge. The hotel rooms weren't full cleaned when we arrived and we had to have house cleaning come up and clean our room. Also there wasn't a refrigerator in the room so if you wanted one there was an extra $25 fee (I was told at one point it was per day and then I was told it was for the entire stay, but all said and done, I wasn't sure which information was correct so I didn't order it). There was also a $75 a day deposit ($300 for the entire stay) that was billed to your credit card and we weren't notified of this charge in advance. I had more contact with Gina and Phyllis than I had with Renee, so if you're the type of person that needs interaction with the main person, I'm not sure you will get it.

I followed Fly Life Travel & Well Diva on Social Media for quite some time. Her trips looked absolutely wonderful! I decided to do “Fabulously Dubai 2019” and it was one of the best travel decisions I’ve made to date! I was celebrating 6 years as a BC Survivor, so I wanted to do something to celebrate life! Renee, Zahra, and her team did an AMAZING job. It was all in the details. The activities for each day were perfect, the sites/tours/attractions were awesome, the food was amazing, the hotel accommodations were lovely, our tour guide and driver were simply the BEST! Most importantly, the connections I made with the women on this trip (28 of us) were priceless! I took a chance with this trip because I didn’t know anyone... I am so glad that I did! The experience, the laughs, the memories will last a lifetime for me! I look forward to doing it again with Fly Life Travel! Renee & her Team are the BEST!! I’ll never forget my 6 Year Survivor Anniversary!! ~Dr. D. “Fabulously Dubai 2019”
