SURF’S UP AT PALACE RESORTS WITH ADDITION OF THE FLOWRIDER® DOUBLE

MIAMI, Fla. – Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations – announces the addition of Wave Loch’s popular wave simulator, the FlowRider® Double, at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, available as of October 1, 2012. The new wave simulator is the latest addition to the brand’s unique and comprehensive package of all-inclusive offerings, and Moon Palace will be the first property in Mexico to offer the wildly popular attraction.

Created by Wave Loch, the FlowRider® Double creates two lanes of perfect endless waves, pumping thousands of gallons of water over a riding surface, and offering hours of surfing excitement for all ages. Participants can drop in on their own unbroken “wave,” feel the power and acceleration, carve a turn, do maneuvers and cut back. While kids can bodyboard on the new FlowRider, the more advanced and adventurous guests can use the standup “flowboards.”

“The FlowRider Double is yet another example of how we are continuously seeking to improve the all-inclusive experience for our guests,” said Gibran Chapur, executive vice president of Palace Resorts “This year alone, we have hosted concerts by Enrique Iglesias and Jon Secada, two world-renowned artists. We recently announced Cirque Dreams will present a limited engagement of their Broadway hit “Jungle Fantasy” at Moon Palace this summer, and now, we are permanently installing a FlowRider, which will surely be a favored feature amongst our guests.”

“We are excited to collaborate with Palace Resorts on such an exciting attraction for its guests.  As one of the leading properties in Mexico, we are sure that the Flowrider Double will be a big hit,” said Ori Vicente, FlowRider Program Manager for Mexico.

The FlowRider Double joins a number of attractions to Palace Resorts’ growing all-inclusive family amenities. Most recently, the brand announced the “Family Connections Program,” a concept created to strengthen family bonds through one-of-a-kind vacation experiences without sacrificing the premium level amenities and services that allow parents to reconnect as a couple. In addition, Palace Resorts introduced their new signature kid’s club, “Connection Zone.” The new club includes additional amenities, services and activities to its already well-established kid program. Connection Zone is available at the brand’s four family-friendly properties: Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, Beach Palace, Playacar Palace and Cozumel Palace.

Whether staying at Moon Palace, or any of the brand’s seven properties, every Palace Resorts guest is treated to most attentive service and finest amenities of any all-inclusive concept. In addition to the upcoming FlowRider, all guests enjoy: luxurious accommodations with double Jacuzzis; in-room liquor dispensers carrying premium brand spirits; fine dining at specialty restaurants; 24-hour room service; entertainment; unlimited Wi-Fi; and unlimited long-distance calls to the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

Guests who book a stay of five-nights or more can take advantage of Palace Resorts’ most valuable and popular vacation promotion – the $1,500 Resort Credit offer. On top of the already unmatched all-inclusive offerings, resort credits can be used towards room upgrades, spa and beauty salon treatments, golf outings, romantic dinners, Colin Cowie Wedding packages, and off-site excursions and tours.

In May of 2011, President Felipe Calderon (president ofMexico) reassured travel executives attending a global tourism summit in Las Vegas that “Mexico is a safe place to visit”.

Despite Calderon’s comforting words, various news programsand magazine articles have left some of us asking whether or not we should go.

Mexico is a large country, and so any attempt to answer that question should probably focus on those places that are safest for travelers.  On April 22nd, the US Department of State issued a Travel Warning to inform US citizens aboutsecurity situation in Mexico.  In the Travel Warning, the Dept. of State specified that “resort areas and tourist destinations in Mexico are generally do notsee the levels of drug related violence and crime reported in the border region
and in areas along major trafficking routes
”.

Anecdotally, I can report that my wife and I spent two weeksin and around Cancun in May.   We took taxis into town and buses to attractions outside of the populated areas and never had any problems or felt uneasy at all.   The locals were always friendly and very helpful.  Most are very proficient in English.  We are heading to Playa del Carmen in December without giving it a second doubt!

And what about our guests?  Are they concerned about venturing to Mexico?  We have had a few inquiries about this
topic.  Safety questions do arise once in a while.  To questions such as “how safe is it? and Is the media blowing it out of proportion?”  I insist that you should use common sense.  Be alert, stay in populated areas, don’t wear expensive jewelry away from the resort, late night activities away from your resort should be curtailed, be respectful of your surroundings.  The same advice that I would give if traveling to NYC, Washington DC or LosAngles.   Use your head,  contact KokoTravel for your next Mexico vacation and you’ll have a great time!!!

New on the list of popular Mexico vacation destinations; the Riviera Nayarit, north of Puerto Vallarta is growing and changing, but with a plan to ensure that the natural beauty and culture remains.

 

Nueve Vallarta Beach

Riviera Nayarit, Nuevo Vallarta Beach

New on the list of popular Mexico vacation destinations; the Riviera Nayarit, north of Puerto Vallarta is growing and changing, but with a plan to ensure that the natural beauty and culture remains.

Riviera Nayarit is in the beginning stages of development. Between 2005 and 2007, the government has invested $1.5 billion in tourism facilities and infrastructure. Of the 20 projects currently in development, 15 percent of the investment is from the United States. Our resorts, restaurants and other establishments place a major emphasis on service and quality as well. Travelers will also be spoilt for choice in terms of lodging options because Riviera Nayarit not only offers all inclusive resorts but also luxurious accommodations for the discerning traveler,” states governor of the state of Nayarit, Ney Gonzalez.

The region’s first stop is just 10 minutes from Puerto Vallarta’s airport, which allows visitors to benefit from constant flights from major U.S. gateways. “This accessibility has helped us to develop the Riviera Nayarit region and promote its unique traits of luxury, culture and nature.”

“Our primary focus in on luxury and nature and as the region develops in the next decade, luxury resorts and facilities will be enhanced by the protected flora and fauna. Nature is an important asset of Riviera Nayarit. For instance, did you know we are a major migration point for humpback whales? Riviera Nayarit is also home to several species of protected sea turtles and sanctuary for over 250 species of birds-one of the largest in North America-and many are rare,” he explains. “We believe a wide-spectrum of travelers would be interested in traveling to Riviera Nayarit, especially those who appreciate the beauty of the region’s natural wonders such as its mangrove forest reserves, Ridley sea turtle sanctuaries and 100 miles of golden-sand beaches. In terms of accommodations, Riviera Nayarit offers many options ranging from intimate bed and breakfast hotels by the sea to luxurious five-diamond resorts. It attracts couples, family vactions, destination weddings, incentive groups, golfers, and watersports enthusiasts.”

Riviera Nayarit; La Cruz Huanacaxtle

With these plans come an abundance of amenities, perks and unique offerings. For instance, Riviera Nayarit is home to La Tovara National Park, considered on the top sports for birdwatching in the entire continent. Visitors to the area can choose from four signature golf courses, with two more in construction. The town of La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, says Murphy, is completing its first phase of development with a 400-slip marina; the second phase will see the construction of a boardwalk and a commercial area with boutique hotels. “Another totally new area, Libitu, is just being developed now, starting with a golf course that will be completed this year. Other locations are just starting their initial development phases and will be announced in the near future,” he adds.

One of the jewels of Riviera Nayarit is the fishing village of San Francisco (also known as San Pancho), which has a polo club with an active season from October through April. It’s out of the way yet very accessible, with hidden beaches and lush hills providing a hush-hush hideaway spot that’s still unknown by the masses.

Also, in the state of Nayarit, is the picturesque fishing village of Sayulita, Mexico that offers visitors and residents incredible beaches, lush jungles and a taste of rural Mexico. Located on the Pacific coast of Nayarit, Mexico, this pueblo is slowly gaining popularity as a vacation/second home destination with plenty of North Americans. With cobblestone streets hosting dogs, chickens and playing children, Sayulita is a half-century away from nearby Puerto Vallarta and it’s huge resorts, discos and parasailing. Sayulita’s location is ideal, only 35 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta airport and 3 hours from Guadalajara.

Nuevo Vallarta is a beautiful tourist destination, waiting to give you the most relaxing experience you have ever had. Nuevo Vallarta has emerged as a sister resort to Puerto Vallarta, keeping a very personal charm. Ultramodern hotels, most featuring an All-Inclusive plan, frame almost 4 miles of fine sand beaches, the best in Vallarta, and ideal for water sports and leisure, as they offer a hidden yet close paradise to stay and relax.

Le Blanc Resort On Cancun White Sand Beach

Le Blanc offers a perfect adults only resort atmosphere in a luxurious, all inclusive beach resort.

From a decadent Diamond Facial to a butler-per-floor policy, Le Blanc Spa Resort continues to entice visitors with advantages that escape the standard all inclusive experience.

“Le Blanc redefines luxury the moment guests enter the sleek and minimalist lobby of the resort,” explains Maira Briceno, dir. of marketing. “Guests are instantly welcomed and treated like royalty…. At this resort, guests are indulged from beginning to end.”

Hovering over the magnificent white sand beaches of Cancun, this adults-only resort combines modern sophistication and service in such details as pillow menus, Jacuzzis built for two, and fully stocked, in-room liquor dispensers that offer premium nightcaps. Haute cuisine is another standard fare at Le Blanc, with everything from Italian favorites to Asian delicacies. Guests watching what they eat find an assortment of healthy fare including salads, lean fish, sushi and other low-cal dishes-a perfect complement to the resort’s amazing spa experience.

“The Le Blanc Spa was created with the guests’ complete relaxation in mind-a place where tranquility prevails throughout the exquisite, elegant and soothing architectural design. Here, surrounded by bamboo gardens, elegant wood and marble floors and wonderfully relaxing outdoor massage pavilions all cares are left behind,” says Briceno. “This unique mix of Asian and European traditions offers and experience of refreshment and rejuvenations for your mind, body and spirit.”

Perhaps one of Le Blanc Spa’s most arresting attractions is the Blanc D’or Suite, a private sanctuary for two with steam, sauna, double Jacuzzi, and private terrace where couples may spend the day in each other’s company while enjoying a full array of treatments. Indulgence is more of an art form here. Guests may begin their spa experience with a guided hydrotherapy routine known as the Water Journey, then continue on to anything from a hydrating papaya and melon wrap to an Asian Discovery (Zen shiatsu and Thai herbal massage) for two at a couples’ suite.  In the near future, Le Blanc will introduce new treatments for mothers-to-be.

Le Blanc is more about “a lifestyle vision of wellness and personalized attention.” Rather than just massages or facials, here it’s all about, a “sensory journey, a balancing experience that cannot be repeated at home. The location, the aromas, the architecture, the professional service are a true synergy of harmony and balance.”

Celebrities and royalty frequent Le Blanc.  This resort is exclusive and the perfect environment for a honeymoon or anniversary celebration, if not simply an escape from reality.  The best deal for Le Blanc is through one of the few
Palace Resorts VIP members
with access to Le Blanc
