The "Life Enriching Experiences".
Paradisus gave us the scoop on another attribute of their romance-perfect brand: Their resort offer complimentary "Life Enriching Experiences," which range in activities from flower arranging, sand castle making, landscape painting, crafts, tequila/wine tasting, cooking classes, and even tango lessons.
Our absolute favorite Life Enriching Experiences for couples are the Pole Dance classes at Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla in Mexico. La Perla’s pole dance classes run 60 minutes long and are offered twice a week at the resort’s outdoor Palapa. Each class is taught by a certified pole dancing instructor who will explain all the basic steps and movements, along with tips to avoid any muscular injuries. This class, which usually has between 15-40 participants, is a complete workout that increases your energy, flexibility and strength. Paradisus’ pole dancing has become so popular with guests that the resort had to recently purchase additional poles! And the popularity doesn’t just stop at the resort – in fact, there are plans for pole dance to become an Olympic sport.
Another must do for honeymooners is the Diamond Tutorial at Paradisus Cancun. This class takes place at the resort every Tuesday, exclusively for Royal Service guests. Experts lead the lesson by demonstrating the different cuts of these exquisite gemstones, as well as the mounting types and how to identify them. The experts are even able to tailor the experience to couples, showing them the most select variety of pieces.
For couples that like to stay active together, Paradisus Palma Real and Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic have added the latest exercise craze - Aqua Spinning - to their roster of guest activities. Aqua Cycling is similar to indoor cycling classes, except taught in a pool, where water plays the role of resistance on the wheel. The class burns up to 800 calories an hour and is known to fight cellulite. Paradisus Palma Real offers Aqua Spinning in its main pool every Monday and Wednesday at noon. Paradisus Punta Cana offers the class every Tuesday and Thursday at noon.
It's details like these that set our partner, Paradisus Resorts, apart in the luxe world of all inclusives. To book your tropical dream honeymoon at Paradisus, please visit www.paradisus.com or call 888-741-5600.
