Vacation is a Time for Mom and Dad Too!

When you’re vacationing with your children, it can be easy to get caught up in all of the excitement and forget to set time aside for you and your spouse. Although you may have initially chosen Now Resorts & Spas because of all of the activities and amenities we offer for children, there are many ways for couples to relax and reconnect with each other too.

So you’re probably wondering how this is even possible. As part of our Unlimited-Luxury® privileges, we offer the Explorer’s Club for children ages 3-12. The Explorer’s Club includes exciting activities and adventures that your children will love and is fully supervised by professionals who are certified in CPR and First Aid. If you interested in other childcare options, talk to the resort concierge for details on our babysitting services.

Now that you finally have some alone time with your significant other, a whole new kind of fun can begin! Wondering what you can do? Book a couples massage at our spa, take a walk along the beach, make reservations for a private romantic dinner or simply order room service and enjoy the peace and quiet!

However you choose to spend your alone time at our resort, we’re sure it will be memorable. And don’t worry, there will be plenty of time to splash in the pool and play in the sand with your children –- that is if you can get them to leave the Explorer’s Club!

Camping on the Beach at Now Sapphire

We recently hosted a camping and movie night on the beach for the kids staying at Now Sapphire Riviera Cancun! This event is just one of the many activities included as part the Unlimited-Luxury® privileges offered at our resort. The kids enjoyed yummy snack food and a live performance by Mystic Drumz before the movie. It was truly a fun night for everyone who attended, although we think the parents might have enjoyed the night off even more than the kids!
