I don’t typically write about destinations. I think we all get enough emails from suppliers about what is the “not to be missed” cruise, resort or destination of the moment. So why am I doing this? Well I just got back from a FAM to Cabo in Mexico. FAM stands for familiarization in travel lingo. Suppliers or destinations will offer, select agents, the opportunity to experience their offering. Last week I was invited to Grand Velas Los Cabos, the newest member of the Velas family’s luxurious resorts.
25 years ago, the Velas brothers had a vision to take the all-inclusive concept to the luxury level. Think Four Season, St. Regis but everything is included from Michelin Star chef restaurant concepts, impressive wines and premium spirits, your own dedicated concierge/butler, fully stocked in room mini bar, Nespresso maker and more. Professional child care, allowing you to play golf, spa or have a romantic dinner, knowing your kids are having an even better time. Cooking classes, wine and tequila tastings with Don Pedro Poncelis Brambila “Best Mexican Sommelier” from the Mexican Association of Sommeliers and a founder of the Mexican Association of Sommeliers. Foodies, mixologists, wine aficionados will be in gastronomical heaven.
Health and wellness is your thing. The Spa offers aromatherapy classes, private couples message rooms with your own private plunge pool. The gym is fully staffed with a personal trainer, fabulous ocean views, yoga classes and more. You can even have your own 2 story Wellness suite with your own private massage and fitness area, mini bar stocked with healthy drinks and snacks, special lights that don’t give off unwanted electronic rays (who knew that even existed).
If the surrounding nature isn’t beautiful enough, art work abounds. If you fall in love with an original piece, you can purchase it and have it shipped to your home.
If you want a group/friends/family get away, are looking for you next incentive travel location, a small convention or the destination wedding of your dreams, Grand Velas los Cabos or any of the Grand Velas properties in Riviera Maya, Nayarit or Vallarta would be an excellent venue.
Yes you say, this sound fabulous, but expensive. So, what’s the deal? If you book now you can stay for $495/person double occupancy till Dec 25th. It goes up a bit during Christmas through New Year’s. In January, high season, it’s $595/person. Remember tips are included too.
Don’t want to deal with setting up and taking down your Christmas tree. Grand Velas will decorate your own tree, in your suite. They’ll even wrap your gifts for you. There is a cost for that, but it would cost you time and money to do it yourself at home. Want to dance, ocean front, outside, under the stars, at an elegant party to ring in 2018. Enjoy exquisite food and drinks; then stroll back to your suite. for a romantic nightcap.
If you decide to visit Grand Velas Riviera Maya you’ll come away with 2 nights free to use at Los Cabos (service fee of $200, good for 2 years).
Now those are some deals!!
