Posted By : Chris Martin/ 6 0

Royalton Luxury Resorts has expanded its All-In Luxury program to include fitness and wellness.

After finding that more and more guests placed an emphasis on health and wellness while on vacation, the resort company decided to enhance its all-inclusive experience to include a wide variety of classes taught by professional and certified instructors.

The new Royalton Fit program offers more than 500 fitness classes with nearly 120 each week at each of Royalton’s resorts in Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic and Saint Lucia.

Fitness classes are offered at every level and include popular fitness trends such as Aqua Fit, Cross Fit, TRX, cycling, yoga, Zumba and more. Guests can also take advantage of their resort setting, partaking in beach boot camps and sunrise yoga.

Royalton Fit was developed by George and Belinda Kiriakou, the resort company’s award-winning team of fitness and health experts.

George Kiriakou has more than 25 years of experience as a bodybuilder, a professional wrestler, a professional fighter, a fitness instructor and a fitness entrepreneur and now leads the sports and fitness program at Royalton Resorts.

Belinda Kiriakou is a fitness cover model and a weight loss and lifestyle coach as well as Canada’s Champion IFBB Pro Bikini Athlete. She focuses on strength training movements and yogic flows to complement higher intensity workouts that provide quicker recovery and effective muscle building.

Their most recent offering is the Boga Fit Mat classes at Royalton Riviera Cancun. The class was launched by the Kiriakous and uses a mat that floats on water, adding difficulty to yoga, Pilates and kickboxing.

Royalton’s fitness program will extend beyond the gym to its culinary offerings.

A Healthy Stay At Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas

Posted By : Chris Martin/ 63 0

A stay at an all-inclusive beach resort doesn’t need to be something your body hates you for the week after. We all know the deal. All you can drink. All you can eat. Minimal exercise. Maximum tanning. But the Caribbean Tourism Organization is trying to change that in naming 2018 the “Year of Wellness and Rejuvenation”.

“For those who focus on renewing body and spirit, the options are virtually endless; from beachfront workouts and yoga retreats, to wellness resorts and spa treatments, the notion of being rejuvenated in the Caribbean is one more reason to let us pamper you in 2018,” said Hugh Riley, Caribbean Tourism Organization secretary general, during a press conference announcing the campaign.

In conjunction with this campaign, whose efforts include showcasing why the Caribbean should be travelers’ number one choice of destination for wellness and rejuvenation, Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas hosted its first ever on-site Wellness Week this pas April.

In partnership with Crunch Fitness and Dr. Rachel Goldman, a licensed psychologist specializing in health and wellness, Breezes Bahamas encouraged its guests to embrace healthy living through complimentary daily exercise classes, workshops, cooking demonstrations and more.

Led by encouraging, high energy certified Crunch Fitness instructors, classes ranged from relaxing and meditative to intense and heart pounding. In the latter category were classes that included Rainbow Meditation which encourages guests to find inner peace inspired by the chakras (energy centers) of the body and their related colors and Rise & Flow Yoga, a class incorporating sun salutes geared toward bringing energy into your day.

Sweat-inducing classes featured the popular TRX® session with ropes to push, pull, lift and lower your body through Spiderman moves for a total body suspension workout and POUND, a class that’s a fusion of movement and music where you drum along to beats with Ripstix™—weighted drumsticks designed to transform drumming into a rock star work out.

One of my favorites of the week? Silent Disco! Using silent disco headphones, you’re set to dance the night away to either ZUMBA®, Pop Dance Project or Hard Knocks (hip-hip and kickboxing fusion) while instructors lead fun workouts that get you sweating.

When guests weren’t working out, they were participating in cooking demonstrations led by Breezes Executive Chef Nigel Clarke and wellness workshops led by Dr. Rachel on topics such as mindful eating and stress reduction.

In addition to the Wellness Week, Breezes Bahamas offers a whole bunch of adventurous land and water activities available to all guests for free. Water activities include ocean paddle boarding, sailing and kayaking. For those who rather stay dry, on-site is a beachside jogging track, tennis courts, sand soccer field, rock climbing, and flying trapeze.

Of course, for those that want to simply relax, Breezes Bahamas is, after all, situated on a 1,000-foot stretch of Cable Beach. Powdery white sands and clear turquoise water makes it an ideal beach getaway destination.

Within two towers are 391 air-conditioned guestrooms including five suites, 28 Ocean Front rooms and eight Beach Front Patio rooms. Moreover, the resort features a piano bar, Blue Mahoe Spa, four restaurants and option for private beach dining, four bars, a fitness center and three freshwater pools.

A stay at Breezes Bahamas means you’re going to be entertained from sun up to sun down, and well after. Once the sun sets, the fun gets started with live entertainment including dance performances, comedy and talent shows and signing. Also on the property is the Hurricanes Nightclub, for anyone who wants to dance all night long.

For those interested in getting off the Breeze Bahamas property, the town of Nassau is easily accessible by bus. Head over to Twin Brothers for their famous daiquiris or my personal new favorite drink, sky juice—a mix of gin, coconut water and condensed milk. For food, make sure to get some authentic Bahamian specialties such as conch fritters, cracked lobster and peas n’ rice.

Itching to do some shopping? Walk over to the renowned straw market on Bay Street in downtown Nassau, a massive open-air market where you can find traditional Bahamian crafts, gifts and souvenirs. Just don’t get overwhelmed and be sure to negotiate prices!

Rates at Breezes Resort & Spa Bahamas start at $296, depending on the season.

Sandals Resort coming to Tobago

Posted By : Chris Martin/ 179 0

Sandals Resorts International has signed a memorandum of understanding to build Sandals and Beaches resorts on Tobago, said chairman Butch Stewart.

It would be the company’s first resorts on the island, one half of the twin-island republic of Trinidad and Tobago in the southern Caribbean. Stewart describes the resort site as “magnificent.”

“We look forward to being a part of the Tobago hotel community as it’s a place I have been interested in for 14 years. It’s an incredible island with warm people and they have a lovely hotel community,” said Stewart.

He also said, “We have been very comfortable dealing with the various officials on the island and look forward to what the future holds.” Sandals has been in negotiations with Tobago for more than a year. The Tobago Hotel and Tourism Association said, “The majority of our members welcome Sandals coming to Tobago because of the additional flights and increased destination marketing which it would provide.”
