nuevo vallarta Point clients to Grand Velas All Suite & Spa Resort in Nuevo Vallarta if they want to combine pampering with eco time. The region provides miles of pristine jungle and beaches, while the Grand Velas property takes care of the more worldly indulgences.
The property is offering a Whale Watching Photo Safari package through March 31 that allows guests to ride out to Banderas Bay on an inflatable speedboat and get as close as possible—sometimes just a few feet—to the humpback whales who come here each year to give birth and raise their calves. The sight is hard to forget, and having friends there to share the experience makes it even better.
The package (code GVNYKWEWHALE) is priced at $352 pp per night dbl and includes suite accommodations and all the accoutrements under the Grand Velas all-inclusive program: premium beverages, a la carte gourmet dining at its several restaurants, access to the fitness center, 24-hour in-suite service, and more. Ladies will love the 3-tier infinity pool and instant access to the beach, not to mention a spa experience to remember. A few days’ stay here can include everything from bike tours through its surroundings to scuba clinics, plus there’s live entertainment nightly.
Have the Ladies… Rent a car and visit Sayulita and other nearby beachy towns in Riviera Nayarit, where the living is slooow and easy, for some added down time and a bit of exploration of the area.
client’s choice Yet another option—choose the offer first, then the destination. Dreams Resorts & Spas has a special alternative for señoras or señoritas, regardless of which Dreams property they choose.
The happy bunch is welcomed with champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries in their room and get daily yoga sessions, preceded or followed by in-room breakfast with mimosas, pastries, fresh fruit and more. Each lady receives a mani/pedi with champagne service and a group photo so they can remember their escape.
