    Hey! So happy for you guys! We have booked this for Oct. 2013, our 25th anniversary, it will be our first time to a Couples, or AI, or out of the country together! I hope you have a great time and if you get the chance post a review, I ~love~ to read those and sometimes people say things that turn out to be great tips that I add to my notebook! I am curious how people pronounce it too, we say "Sans" like Sand without the "d", and "Souci" like the Japanese word for Sushi, so "San Sue-she" ... but I don't know if that's right or not!

    The keyboard doesn't contain the symbols necessary to spell the phrase phonetically, but perhaps this will help: sanz soo-see.

    Thanks to all. Now we won't be the obvious newbies that everyone snickers at. At least not in this way.

    It is french and means 'without care'. The 'Sans' part is pronounced just like the final part of the word liaison; as in ON that starts with an s (but not pronounced like Son -which would be sun! Jeez |English is hard, especially when it's French!) Souci is pronounced soo see. S'on soo see. See?

    Whilst I am on the subject (and in Pedantry mode!) Au Natural should really be Au Naturelle.

    Pedantry done. Over and out.

    THE Definitive Answer!!!

    Just to clear some of these pronunciation tips, it's not sanz, it's san. Sans is French for "without", and the second "s" is silent.

    Souci, pron "sue-see" is French for "care".

    Sans souci translates to "without care", which is a perfect name for a Coupels Resort in Jamaica!
