Taking a vacation to the lovely island of Jamaica almost always means a stay at an all-inclusive resort. With several resorts available, it can be hard to choose which one to stay at.

However, after a quick glance into what Couples Resorts offers guests, there is really no question these hotels are the way to go for a memorable trip.

There are four unique properties to choose from including Couples Tower Isle, Couples Sans Souci, Couples Negril and Couples Swept Away. Each one has special characteristics to set it apart from the others, but they all come with unlimited inclusions you won’t find anywhere else.

The 24-hour gourmet dining at these properties includes everything from local Jamaican jerk chicken to the freshest catch of the day, always savory and authentic. There are several restaurants to visit as well as in-room dining to indulge in.

Not only is the food amazing, but the drinks are as well. The restaurants and bars are stocked with top-shelf spirits for guests to enjoy. For those who prefer to relax in the room, the mini-bar can also be customized and stocked with favorites.

In addition to the mouth-watering food and beverages, Couples Resorts has endless water sports and activities for all to partake in. Visitors can satisfy the water sports enthusiast in them with waterskiing, windsurfing, kayaking, snorkeling, Hobie Cat sailing and paddle-boarding.

As if that isn’t enough to stay busy in the water, Couples also offers unlimited PADI-certified scuba diving.

For those who aren’t as fond of splashing around, complimentary tennis and golf are available on property. There are also cooking classes, basket-weaving and salsa dancing—certainly something for everyone.

Hard-Rock-Cancun

23 Oct Hard Rock Hotels Om Yoga Program

Hard Rock Hotels Inspires Guests to Play Hard and Purify Harder Through Om Yoga Program

Encouraging guests to play hard and purify harder, Hard Rock Hotels is expanding its Sound Body wellness program with the launch of Rock Om®, an in-room yoga experience, energizing the body and soul through the power of music. Working in collaboration with Manduka, the world’s most respected yoga equipment and apparel brand endorsed by 4,000 yoga studios, teachers and practitioners worldwide, Rock Om® provides guests with top-of-the-line yoga equipment to utilize during their stay. Rock Om® also offers guests a Hard Rock spin on in-room yoga classes, combining original tracks by DJ Drez fused with his wife, yogi Marti Nikko’s, dynamic instruction on the easily-accessible Video On-Demand television channel.

Rock Om® will raise the volume on guests’ fitness levels through DJ Drez, a renowned producer, musical director and sound ambassador, who has worked with top artists ranging from the Black Eyed Peas and Eminem, to Macy Gray and Project Blowed. The program will redefine the ordinary yoga session, providing a fresh take on a timeless tradition by fusing together the ancient serenity of yoga with the beat of music. Select Hard Rock Hotels will also offer live, on-site yoga classes for those seeking to practice in a group atmosphere.

“We are thrilled to team up with powerhouses like Manduka and DJ Drez to offer guests the highest quality of yoga experience,” said Dale Hipsh, senior vice president of Hard Rock Hotels. “Rock Om® is set to fan the flames for innovative hotel wellness experiences, and we couldn’t be more proud to launch the program to all of our brand fans.”

Available at all Hard Rock Hotels worldwide, as well as upcoming properties, the program is designed to deliver a customized yoga experience, allowing guests to refresh, rejuvenate and re-energize the mind, body and spirit through the power of music. Rock Om® consists of three individual in-room yoga videos that will play on Hard Rock’s television systems across the brand’s portfolio, in addition to the Rock Om® landing page where guests and non-guests can follow along and flow.

“Zenith” helps guests unwind through calming meditation and tranquil breathing exercises.
“Zeppelin” encourages guests to strike a pose and break a sweat to the beats and rhythm of high-energy Vinyasa flow.
“Zen” allows guests to recharge their bodies and minds with the traditional movements of classic flow.

“It’s so exciting to see Manduka translated through the eyes and ears of the Hard Rock brand,” said Cathy Quain, president of Manduka. “The Rock Om® program is the perfect blend of our trusted premium yoga equipment and the graphic, modern design aesthetic for which Hard Rock is known. This collaboration inspires Hard Rock guests to practice yoga – safely and stylishly – anywhere their travels take them.”

Additionally, as part of the program, guests can order an in-room yoga kit, which can be ordered either prior to arrival, at check-in or during stays. The yoga kits will include a regionally-inspired Yogitoes towel created by Manduka specifically for Hard Rock Hotels, a Manduka PROlite yoga mat and a Manduka Go Play carrier bag, all exclusive to the Rock Om® program and available for purchase in the Rock Shop.

“As a yoga practitioner who also travels for a living, I am thrilled to provide a new wellness option to our guests, especially those who might not be able to hit the hotel gym, but still want to get a workout before going about their day,” said Nora Swire, senior director of marketing for Hard Rock Hotels & Casinos. “We look forward to leveraging the brand’s connection to music, vibe and energy, creating a differentiated, one-of-a-kind fitness experience for travelers across the globe.”

Appealing to the modern business or leisure traveler, the elements of Rock Om® aim to create an unparalleled wellness experience for guests.

Caribbean-Island

13 Oct 4 Reasons You Should Still Travel to the Caribbean

Hurricanes Irma and Maria attacked the Caribbean as if it was their mission this September, leaving billions of dollars of damage in their wake. Reports say that Barbuda (sister island of Antigua) is no longer inhabitable, and a tragic news story about Puerto Rico comes out every day.

And, let’s not forget about St. Maarten and Dominica, where as much as 90 percent of the islands were destroyed.

While all the bad news may make you wonder if the Caribbean is worth visiting, it’s important to note that there are still plenty of reasons to visit the selection of islands that make up this part of the world. Before you eschew the Caribbean and book elsewhere, consider these reasons to visit anyway:

Plenty of Islands Are Outside the Hurricane Belt

If you’ve been dreaming of visiting the Caribbean but are worried about running into damage that might ruin your trip, keep in mind that plenty of Caribbean islands are outside the hurricane belt—and that many didn’t encounter a hurricane at all.

Barbados, Curacao, Grenada and many other islands aren’t anywhere near the typical hurricane zone. Many others like Jamaica and Grand Cayman saw no damage at all while some resort destinations like the Dominican Republic and St. Kitts/Nevis saw only a passing blow.

Damaged Islands Need Your Money and Help

Since many Caribbean islands rely on tourism as their main source of income, actually visiting an impacted island is one of the best ways you can help.

By spending your money at hotels and restaurants, you’re putting cash right into the hands of people who can desperately use it.

Many Damaged Islands Are Already Back Up and Running

Some islands that noted damage were able to turn around and reopen to tourists rather fast.

Antigua, for example, is mostly open and just as beautiful as ever, its CEO of the local tourism board told The Telegraph. Anguilla appears to be on its way back in business, and the islands that make up the Bahamas are mostly back up and running as usual.

The Caribbean Offers Any Travel Experience You Could Want

You could fly to Europe to experience Dutch, French or British culture, but several islands in the Caribbean offer European flair—and often food—since they are colonies of larger countries across the pond.

Visit Curacao for a taste of Dutch delicacies like bitterballen and stroopwafels, for example.

And, don’t forget that the Caribbean is more than just beautiful beaches. The islands boast mountains you can climb, amazing snorkeling, plenty of opportunities for outdoor recreation and amazing foodie experiences featuring local ingredients like seafood and spices.

Hurricanes Irma and Maria may have battered part of the Caribbean, but the islands still have plenty to offer visitors. Whether you love seafood or snorkeling or giant stretches of white sand beach, you can still find it in the Caribbean.

And right now, they need you more than ever.  Explore the Caribbean today!
