Let’s Plan Our Escape to Now Resorts & Spas #ResortEscape

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Now Resorts & Spas for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

I am always up for a vacation, what about you? Let’s plan an Unlimited-Luxury® escape to a resort in a warm tropical location. You bring the chick lit and I’ll bring the sunscreen! There’s nothing I love more than soaking up the sun at the beach.

Room service, anyone?  

Gourmet food, luxurious accommodations and world class activities await. When you choose a Now Resorts & Spas destination, you can make a quick getaway to a place where you will feel like royalty. Exceptional service, entertainment and all the spa treatments you want are there for the taking.

An Unlimited Luxury® vacation means you will vacation at an All-inclusive luxury resort. This really takes all the stress out of your planning because everything is taken care of for you. You’ll enjoy spacious suites with 24-hour room service and daily restocked mini bars. 

Feeling fancy? 

Gourmet meal dining options average 7 a la carte choices from including but not limited to: French, Italian, and Mexican cuisines. No reservations or wristbands required! The Sip, Savor and See Dining Experiences lets you enjoy dining and entertainment at nearby resorts. And, lively bars serve unlimited premium brand beverages.

We would definitely kayak!

Now Resorts & Spas are perfect for Family travel. Enjoy Explorer’s Kids Club (ages 3-12 years) and Core Zone Teens Club (ages 13-17 years) with supervised activities by trained staff at no additional charge.

Someone is going to entertain my kids for free? All right…this is getting too good to be true!

Unlimited Connectivity apps allow guests to send and receive calls with no international roaming charges, create personalized profiles to contact staff, and receive up to date daily calendars.

I love to indulge in a spa treatment every now and then. And what better time to treat yourself than when you are on vacation! Visit the Now Spa by Pevonia for hydrotherapy, massage and indigenous rituals. Featured products include OPI and Pevonia.

Picture yourself: Right Here. Ahhhh!

Now that you know a little bit about what is included in your Now Resorts & Spas vacation package, you just need to pick a destination! Each one offers its own unique variety of activities sure to appeal to all travelers. Which one of these resorts catches your eye? I know you will want to say ALL of them…but what if you HAD to pick JUST ONE? Can you do it? (I admit…I’m having a hard time making this decision.)

  1. Sounds like a resort we want to visit! A little fun, great food, fancy restaurants and relaxation. What could be better?!

  2. I love Family resorts and this looks like a wonderful place to have fun and relax.. thanks for sharing this, will have to check it out, we are planning spring break with the family and this would be great

  3. Oh Oh Oh!! Pick me! I want you to win and pick me for the other person for the trip! I shared for you! lol.
    Such a hard choice to pick which trip to take. I would take any of them.

    • Thank you for sharing – I saw your tweet and thought, How sweet of Amber! I wish I’d be lucky enough to win a trip. Maybe we should just go on a trip anyway. After writing that blog post, I want to go on vacation somewhere warm more than ever. LOL

  4. We have 4-5 inches of new snow on the ground right now. I am so ready for a tropical vacation.

    • Oh yuck! I’m sorry about the snow…ours is almost all melted but it’s way too early for spring. I’ve got spring fever already. I think a tropical vacation is the only cure. 🙂

  5. Wow that looks beautiful. Especially when we have more freezing weather coming tomorrow.

  6. Whenever we travel to Mexico we stay at an All Inclusive resort. It makes travel so much easier.

  7. I would really like to check out Punta Cana. At this point with the cold weather, anywhere warm sounds PERFECT!!

  8. Tammy Schweitzer says:
  9. Oh my goodness…..these resorts look amazing!

  10. OK. I would choose Cancun. I’ve been to Punta Cana and the food quality is not as good as Mexico’s. food. Also, their infrastructure is not as up-to-date as Mexico (my opinion). Puerta Vallarta’s water is not as blue and not as warm as Cancun. My sisters each have a condo in Cancun and they LOVE it. They’ve had their condos for about 5 years. My parents spend the winter there. After you see the crystal blue water, there’s nothing like it.

  11. Love seeing these nice warm places! I could use a vacay during this brutal winter!

  12. Gorgeous! I would love to visit a resort with white beaches and clear water. That’s on my bucket list actually.

  13. That Punta Cana resort sounds pretty incredible, I have to say.

  14. Wow! I’d be thrilled to go to any of those places! They all look beautiful!

  15. This sounds amazing! Especially the weather. Its much colder here!

  16. Looks like loads of fun. I’d love a vacation somewhere warm.

  17. As I sit here with my space heater and fuzzy robe – I am actually drooling over the Sapphire resort! If I went there I might not come back.

  18. very very nice, I would never want to leave!

  19. Hey Nicole!

    My wife and I just returned from perhaps the best vacation of our entire lives, which also happened to be our Honeymoon! We stayed at Now Amber in Puerto Vallarta and the entire experience warrants an easy 5-Star, A+ rating. From the minute Carlos greeted us with a chilled glass of champagne and an ice-cold orange scented towel at valet, to the minute Roberto sadly helped carry our bags down from our room to our departing taxi, we were treated like royalty. This is something that you just don’t find nowadays and it was a welcomed surprise.

    Having researched All-Inclusive resorts for a few weeks before stumbling upon Now Amber, we knew this was the place for us once we saw what great reviews the property had received on TripAdvisor and similar sites. Compared to similar resorts the price was better and the overall vibe was that everything from the location to the food to the service was amazing.

    It seemed like every guest we met while there said they had been to countless other All-Inclusive resorts all over the world and this was by far the best they’d ever been to. We felt so lucky to have found such an amazing place on our first ever visit to an All-Inclusive resort!

    Every single person who works at Now Amber was extremely professional and genuine. No matter what they were doing everyone always responded to us with “My Pleasure.” It was almost laughable because everyone was so unbelievably nice!

    The food was all delicious and served in the most artistic way possible. No matter where we chose to eat, every restaurant felt like it was the best one on the property. We ate at the Italian, French, Mexican, Japanese, and Market Cafe restaurants for dinner two times while we were there. Every single meal deserved 5-stars. Every drink we ordered was also very delicious and the best part was the never stopped flowing until we chose to turn in for the night! Leon was our favorite lobby bartender, Javier & Jose were the best pool bar bartenders ever, and Jonathan & Hugo were the best poolside bartenders during our stay.

    Perhaps the favorite thing about our entire stay was the pool area and the Entertainment Staff. Although there was eight or so different entertainment staff, Alejandro and Hugo were our favorites! Every day they made us laugh and we thoroughly enjoyed partaking in all of their different games and entertainment.

    I could go on and on about how amazing this resort is, but alas I must conclude. Now that we’ve had the chance to experience this resort with just us two, we cannot wait to return (hopefully soon) with all of our friends and family. This is definitely a place that we foresee ourselves visiting for many years to come!

    Good luck and have fun 🙂

    • What an amazing trip! I loved reading your comment – I could almost imagine being there. It’s so cool that you got to know the staff by name and even more awesome how they treated you and your wife like royalty. I’m so glad you had the best honeymoon ever. Congratulations on getting married!!! And thank you for letting us all know just how great this Now resort is. I really want to go there more than ever! -Nicole

  20. This resort looks too awesome to miss, and in such a beautiful location. Now I’m daydreaming…..
