Need to Get Away? Choose Your Escape with Now Resorts and Spas #ResortEscape

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

The last week or so, we’ve been talking about where we want to go for family vacation this year. I can’t help but feel a little bitten by the travel bug. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a home body and could easily stay home for days on end…. but I do love exploring this great big world and all the beauty within. Especially when it comes to creating amazing memories. An escape, of sorts, is probably what we all need right now with all of winter’s cold and snow and ice. Now Resorts & Spas has just the escape.Choose Your Escape with Now Resorts & Spas #ResortEscape

Maybe you’re dreaming of your own escape to a fresh, contemporary, vibrant, and more importantly, WARM location. Now Resorts & Spas have oceanfront settings that encourage guests to live in the moment, enjoy new experiences, and create lasting memories. I don’t know about you, but I could so go for creating some lasting memories at one of these resorts right now.

Features and Amenities at all Now Resorts & Spas Locations

Part of the brand’s concept is an Unlimited-Luxury® vacation, where everything is included, an All-inclusive luxury resort concept. This is especially nice for guests who want the full experience but may not be able to pay for additional activities.

Now Resorts & Spas feature large, spacious suites with 24-hour room service and mini bars that are restocked daily. If guests want to enjoy dinner out, they have 7 options for dining, including all kinds of cuisines, ranging from Mexican to Italian, French, and more. Oh, and no need to wear a wristband or make a reservation. Bars are  available with unlimited beverages. Guests may also choose the option to dine and enjoy a bit of entertainment at other nearby participating resorts with the Sip, Savor & See Dining Experience.

One thing that speaks to me is that they include kids in the resort activities. Kids deserve an escape too. With an Explorer’s Kids Club for ages 3-12 and a Core Zone Teens Club for ages 13-17, kids have the perfect opportunity to go have some fun of their own. And there’s no extra charge! Double win! Mom and Dad get away for some time to themselves; kids get to go have some fun of their own!

Need to make a call or stay connected while visiting the resort? No problem. Guests also have access to unlimited connectivity, meaning they can call, send and receive international calls without roaming charges.

Finally, the spa…. just the word “spa” sounds so relaxing and inviting. The Now Spa by Pevonia offers indulgent treatments like hydrotherapy, massage and more. Products used include OPI and Pevonia.

Who Can Visit Now Resorts & Spas?

As you can see, anyone can travel to Now Resorts & Spas and enjoy a vacation away from it all. They cater to parents with tweens and teens, multi-generational families (maybe a family reunion?), and travelers that look for a great vacation for their buck…. those who seek value for the money they’re spending on an escape. Family travel is encouraged.

    Hey Mel!

    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 :)
