To make the decision process a breeze, be sure to contact your local travel professional. They are your best resource and can help you navigate through all the available destinations and resort options that fit you best, all while providing you exclusive offers and packages not available anywhere else.

For Love Birds (and Their Brood)

Couples wanting to break away from the everyday in search of peace, relaxation and romance will absolutely love the all-inclusive Sandals Negril in Jamaica. Just like stunning island itself, Sandals Negril is a little bit exotic and very chic, exuding a blissful ambience of laid-back cool is further complemented by the island's legendary Seven-Mile Beach. Besides its beautiful location, what makes the resort ideal for couples is an unrivaled lineup of luxury inclusions – luxe accommodations just steps from the beach, superb pools, 24-hour room service, unlimited fine dining at seven restaurants and all cocktails, unlimited scuba diving, and much more.   

Parents in need of a romantic beachside escape where they can bring along their little ones can finally breathe easy and have the best of both worlds thanks to Azul Beach Hotel, by Karisma.

Rooms are just steps from the beach, pools, restaurants and bars. Azul Beach especially caters to families with young children with loaner baby equipment, kid's club and parent support – perfect for a candle lit dinner on the beach.

A Foodie Haven

Like many travelers, we too are foodies at heart and love nothing better than having our taste buds “wowed” while on vacation. If you truly love great food and having a wide-array of dishes and restaurants to choose from, both the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana and El Dorado Spa & Resort on the Riviera Maya are certain satisfy your hunger for culinary sophistication.

Located in the Dominican Republic’s trendy resort town, the all-inclusive and family-friendly Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana has it all – decadent rooms and suites, fabulous golf and spa amenities, and fantastic food. Sure, you'll feast on the very best seafood and Caribbean fare the Dominican has to offer, but there's a whole globe of tasty treats waiting to indulge you. Restaurants at the Hard Rocke offer culinary adventures ranging from chic Asian-fusion to comforting home-cooked breakfasts. It's all good and it's all included. And don't worry, the bars are fully stocked with your favorite wines, spirits and beers.

For couples wanting an adults-only getaway that also mingles a breathtaking setting with gourmet cuisine, the search ends at Karisma’s El Dorado Spa Resorts & Hotels, set along Mexico’s shimmering Riviera Maya. Comprised of four luxury resorts, each offering beachfront views of pristine stretches of sand, sea and sun, the El Dorado’s Gourmet Inclusive® experience goes far beyond the resorts’ lavish accommodations, amenities and services to include “best in class,” “decadent” and “outstanding” meals created by star chefs.

Not only is Mexico and the Caribbean home to some of the world’s top resorts, it’s also home to tranquil resort spas where you and your sweetie can experience a blissful menu of signature messages, therapies, treatments, wellness and beauty makeovers.
