Velas Resorts is banking on more companies—those with remote workers and others who have returned to the office—looking to energize staff, boost creativity and productivity to change routines while providing "the ultimate social distancing." To that effect, Velas Resorts has come up with the new "Group Takeover Program," a twist on the "workcation." It guarantees companies exclusive use of the hotel, offering total privacy for meetings, teamwork, teambuilding and more. Plus, the wellness offerings and a picturesque location, Velas says, fosters creativity to ensure a positive work environment.
The "Group Takeover Program" includes ample space for indoor and outdoor socially distant working, a novel cellphone concierge and 24/7 tech assistance, as well morning juice bars and meditation restart sessions. Daily happy hour ranges from taco and tequila pairings, mezcal tastings and botanical DIY cocktails from the onsite garden to "Painting with Wine," margarita mixology and "Guacamania." Micro-adventures to local cultural sites, traditional cooking classes, airport transfers and wellness workshops among other private activities can also be organized.
Should employee spouses and families be encouraged to join, the resorts offer oceanfront pools, beaches, golf, fitness center and program, and spa services. Babysitting and virtual school assistance is also available.
The "Group Takeover Program" is available at the resort collection’s boutique hotels, Mar del Cabo in Los Cabos and Casa Velas in Puerto Vallarta. Mar del Cabo has 46 one- and two-bedroom suites and two penthouses. Elegant white-washed walls are accented by draping bougainvillea that blends "old Greek Isles charm" with accented colors and Mexican folklore. Reminiscent of a Spanish hacienda, Casa Velas offers 80 spacious suites nestled on the greens of Marina Vallarta's 18-hole golf course.
Velas Resorts have received the global safety stamp of approval from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) due to its safety and cleanliness protocols (detailed in a 15-page "Stay Safe with Velas" program).
The Group Takeover Program starts at $9,960 at Mar del Cabo and $11,400 at Casa Velas (60 suites only) in European Plan. A five-night minimum applies. For more information on Velas Resorts Meetings, call 1-888-505-8399, email [email protected] or visit velasmeetingsmexico.com.
