After nine months of pregnancy followed by an often-stressful birth,it’s no wonder that many new parents find themselves dreaming of a laid-back getaway in the months after. Still,the idea of traveling with a newborn can be daunting at best,which is why the AAA Five Diamond Grand Velas Resorts in Mexico have designed special services to make the travel experience easier on the whole family.
“Grand Velas Resorts make traveling with babies much simpler with a long list of accommodations especially for babies,as well as a dedicated Baby Concierge to make arrangements and recommendations for guests,” writes the resort in a recent press release.
At the Grand Velas Riviera Maya guests can reserve a crib prior to arrival,and baby’s diet is of utmost importance,with organic foods and beverages available on request and nanny service available with advance notice. At Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit,the newest offering is the Baby’s First Haircut experience,which comes with lots of pampering and a certificate to celebrate the important milestone. For children ages 1-3 years,this can be combined with a Sunrise Massage that is designed to stimulate the senses and encourage understanding of different textures and sounds. In addition,everything from toys,baby floats and clothes to gentle bath products are readily available.
“You’ve made the trip,now devote yourselves to having fun,” advise Baby Concierges Jesus Duarte and Maribel Cubillas from Grand Velas Riviera Maya. “Ask your concierge about babysitting services.”
If the thought of leaving a youngster unattended makes you feel a bit uneasy,keep in mind that all sitters must have special certification to care for babies at Grand Velas resorts. And while family time is important,it’s also nice to have peace of mind and be able to enjoy some romantic alone time with your partner.
Duarte and Cubillas also recommend leaving unnecessary items at home – such as a stroller,baby carrier and too many outfits – since you’re likely to have your hands full with just carrying your own luggage along with toting around the newest addition to your family. Baby-friendly resorts like Grand Velas will offer everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay,making it easy to relax and let go of the fear that you will leave something important behind.
Of course,Grand Velas properties also offer plenty of amenities for adults,including spacious designer suites with free WiFi,L’Occitane products,artisanal tequila and Nespresso machines,with some suites even boasting their very own private plunge pools. The spas offer a wide range of authentic Mexican treatments and other world-class services,while the resort’s innovative kids and teen clubs will help keep older siblings occupied. A number of different restaurants are also located on-site at the resort properties,including gourmet offerings and more casual fare.
In fact,according to the press release,Cocina de Autor at Grand Velas Riviera Maya is the only all-inclusive to win the AAA Five Diamond Award,achieved in 2013 at the hands of disciples of world celebrity chef Arzak. Similarly,Grand Velas Riviera Nayarit was named one of the “Top All-Inclusives for Foodies,” in 2014 by U.S. News & World Report.
