Family Friendly – new consideration!

Well it’s January, it’s cold, and President’s Weekend (February 14-17th) as well as the kids April Spring Recess is coming toward us, and fast.  These are two of the best opportunities for family travel and a great way to help your family escape these bitter temperatures. Space is limited at the resorts and on the cruise lines, so I’m excited that so many of my clients have been booking their winter 2014 vacations through me now.

I’m always asked “well Dina, where should we go!?” and the answer is always personalized to your family, their needs and vacation style.  I do find though that, as you see on my Facebook Group Page (Join at that there have been an excessive amount of cruise promotions as well as promotions from top family resorts that I trust, personally love, and that my clients always enjoy.  This is because they are all competing for your attention / business.  I continue to go through training after training, and FAM/site visit after site visit to keep up with what’s new and determine why they are different so I can pair your family/group with the best resort for YOUR needs.

Today I participated in a training about a resort choice that you should ask me about for your next family, group, or destination wedding vacation: AZUL Hotels by Karisma.

Karisma’s platform has always been more than All-Inclusive, they are Gourmet Inclusive.  They were the first to introduce to all-inclusive hotels the concept of butlers, swim-up suites, and infinity pools, for example.  They lead the pack in Mexico (and now are in the Caribbean!)  Their list of awards are plenty, and very impressive.  They are the first all-inclusive to have ALL of their hotels certified by Wine Spectator!: 

What I loved about this resort is it provides me a competitive option for those of you who are looking for a family all-inclusive option that is classy, relaxing and modern.  Not only modern in amenities, but modern in their operations. For example, all of their produce is GROWN ON SITE for all of the hotels!!

What comes to mind for me with AZUL is not only your family vacation, but a great location for a destination wedding and vow renewal as well as a family reunion.  The children are pampered and treated just as luxurious as the adults with their own spa services, partnerships with Fisher Price as well as MyGym.  Those members of the family who are traveling without children can take advantage of the gorgeous Adults Only sections of their resorts and the amenities that come with them.  There truly is something for everyone from Adults Only privacy to villa options as well as non-villa and adjoining family rooms/suites.

For those considering a destination wedding, this hotel group provides couples with the opportunity for a low priced 4 day/3 night rate so you can stay, see, and experience the resorts before committing to it for their wedding. This is something I LOVE to book and appreciate the hotel group offering!

NEW in JAMAICA is the first Karisma resort in the Caribbean.  The AZUL resort in Jamaica features 130 suites, all which are ocean front or ocean view.  This is a wonderful, new resort in Jamaica to ask me about for pricing.  ESPECIALLY since I now have the new NON-STOP Charter Flights to Jamaica to offer you from Newark, NJ!

What I walked away with from this training update is that Karisma continues to care about service and being the best in the all-inclusive industry.  They have a classy, luxurious vibe to them that provides a unique experience for those of my clients who are looking for pampering in paradise.

I look forward to hearing from more of you, as your keeping me VERY busy for winter and spring bookings. Absolutely ask me about a quote from the AZUL resorts too!
