Calgary travel agents were treated to a night of fine dining and cocktails last night at the Alforno Bakery and Cafe by Carlos Peralta of Melia Hotels International and his global team of representatives from Mexico, Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Brazil and Italy.
The small and intimate event was a show of support and gratitude to the agents, allowing them to visit one-on-one with hotel representatives from Paradisus (Cancun, Los Cabos, Playa del Carmen), Melia (Puerto Vallarta, Punta Cana, Jamaica) and Gran Melia Luxury Urban Resorts (Brazil, Italy).
At Paradisus, each had the opportunity to showcase their respective properties, highlighting their signature Royal Service, Family Concierge and up to $1,500 resort credit offerings to guests. Paradisus Los Cabos, the newest Paradisus resort, opened nine months ago and is one of the few resorts in Los Cabos that offers guests a swimmable beach.
The Paradisus Los Cabos also features an oceanfront resort and backdrop to a beautiful golf course.
Triple Play Promotion, offered with Paradisus, rewards agents booking leisure groups and weddings at Paradisus by Melia properties in Mexico. With groups of a minimum 15-20 rooms, agents can receive a complimentary three-night stay at any Paradisus by Melia property in Mexico. Groups of 21-31 rooms provides agents with a complimentary five-night stay, and groups of 31 rooms or more receive a complimentary seven-night stay.
For wedding groups, a free wedding anniversary trip to any Paradisus property in Mexico is offered to brides and grooms as an extra incentive. The Triple Play Promotion must be included in the wedding contract with tour operators for travel agents to receive the rewards.
The Melia Braco Village in Jamaica opened two years ago and was voted the best new hotel in the Caribbean. The colonial exterior adds traditional and authentic Jamaican charm, whereas the interior boasts a modern and contemporary experience.
The restaurants and bars close down on Friday evenings to hold a Friday Night Street Party complete with Jamaican jerk chicken and live entertainment for a unique cultural social gathering.
In Punta Cana, three Melia resorts provide exchange privileges to fully enjoy all three properties in one vacation.
The Gran Melia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil is a oceanfront luxury high-rise hotel offering a mix of upscale elegance and ideal location. Rooms available for all guests including oceanfront views, mountain views or city views.
The Gran Melia in Rome, Italy is a boutique resort ideally located in central Rome, so guests can easily access all the popular tourist attractions in Rome with views of the Vatican and St Peter's Basilica.
Melia Resorts continues to expand globally including new hotels opening in the Maldives, Argentina and Venice next year.
