Earth Day at Now Resorts & Spas

All year long Now Resorts & Spas strive to be environmentally friendly through recycling and conserving energy.

Traveling with the Family

As parents begin to plan their summer vacations, I thought it would be a good time to show you what our Explorer’s Club for Kids has to offer. Each Now Resort & Spa features an Explorer’s Club for children 3 to 12 years old, where kids can enjoy time with other kids in a supervised environment.

While at the Explorer’s Club, kids are treated to endless activities like treasure hunts, arts and crafts, water sports and organized games. Although I am not yet a parent, I’m sure I am going to be a worry wart, but there is no need to worry about your children when they are at the Explorer’s Club. Parents are given a pager in case they are needed and all of our staff meeting U.S. safety regulations, including being certified in CPR and First Aid.
