Tony Perrone, AAA Manager for Mexico, bestowed the awards to three property general managers during a ceremony held at Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun. Continuing a 78-year-old tradition, AAA’s professionally trained inspectors use published guidelines to conduct unannounced hotel and restaurant evaluations, assigning approved establishments a rating of One to Five AAA Diamonds. Properties identified by AAA as possible candidates for a Five Diamond rating undergo multiple evaluations and are finally selected by a panel of experts.

Palace Resorts continues to shine through the rating system with premium service standards, personalized guest experiences and outstanding on-site amenities. Le Blanc Spa Resort was a standout in the annual rankings, which are reserved for superior properties that exemplify the highest level of excellence in every facet of operation. Only one-third of one percent of the more than 30,000 lodgings rated by the American Automobile Association, achieve this coveted Five Diamond Award designation.

 

Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort received the Four Diamond Award for the second consecutive year.

Beach Palace, the ideal locale for an unforgettable family experience, is located in the heart of Cancun’s world-famous hotel zone and features gorgeous stretches of white sand beach. The property’s contemporary design has unique features such as a Sky Floor with two swimming pools, two swim-up bars, two whirlpool tubs, a breathtaking view of the Nichupte lagoon and a fitness center. Additional amenities include a massive outdoor screen where evening shows and televised sports events are projected for guests’ viewing pleasure. The AAA Four Diamond Award is a testament to the property’s high caliber level of hospitality, facilities and amenities.

The AAA Five Diamond adults-only Le Blanc Spa Resort, consistently recognized as one of the world’s top all-inclusive resorts, is located in a secluded enclave between the Nichupte Lagoon and the glistening Caribbean Sea in Cancun, Mexico. Le Blanc Spa Resort guests are not only looking for the ultimate in relaxation and luxury, but also want to take full advantage of everything the resort has to offer. From the moment of arrival, guests are treated like royalty as butlers present signature drinks, chilled scented towels and tropical flowers. The 24-hour Le Blanc butler on each floor caters to guests’ every whim, starting with a check-in escort to elegantly appointed waterside rooms, all with amazing views of the Caribbean sea, where countless luxury amenities accent this charming luxury escape.

Palace Foundation partners with Lorena Ochoa Foundation to launch philanthropic golf tournament

Palace Foundation partners with Lorena Ochoa Foundation to launch philanthropic golf tournament

World Renowned Golfer Lorena Ochoa announced as guest of honor for charitable tournament, with proceeds benefiting local Mexican community.

MIAMI, Fla.(March 2014) Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in luxurious, all-inclusive resort accommodations – announced the launch of a golf tournament set to take place at the brand’s signature property, Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, in Cancun May 29-31. The tournament is the result of an alliance between the brand’s philanthropic organization, the Palace Foundation, and the Lorena Ochoa Foundation, a charity overseen by world renowned Mexican golfer, Lorena Ochoa.

The Palace Foundation has spearheaded this tournament with the goal of raising funds for the construction of Casa Hogar Palace, an orphanage for local children. The space will house up to 120 local children between the ages of six and 12 and will feature an education center providing several scholarships on behalf of “La Barranca” Lorena Ochoa’s educational center. 
                                                         

“The Palace Foundation is excited to partner with the Lorena Ochoa Foundation. We know that Lorena is an active member and an enthusiast of the philanthropic community through her initiatives, and our main goal is to assist children in need through this charitable, yet fun event,” said Maria Jose Ortega, Palace Foundation Director.

The­­­ tournament will take place at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort’s signature Jack Nicklaus Golf Course. Its dynamic layout challenges golfers to navigate through native vegetation, numerous wetlands and strategically placed bunkers. Each of the three nine-hole courses offers a distinctive environment that challenges professionals and amateurs alike.

The tournament will welcome golf enthusiasts from all over the world for a $920 registration fee per player, which includes a two-night, all-inclusive stay at the resort and a chance to win various prizes, including a new car. Players will have an opportunity to obtain golf lessons led by Ochoa, in addition to exhibition rounds with each of the teams. Lastly, all participants will secure access to a gala dinner prior to the tournament as well as an exclusive awards luncheon taking place in the resort’s elegant a la carte restaurant La Trattoria, located on the  golf course.

­A former member of the LPGA and number one golfer in the world for 157 consecutive weeks from 2007 to 2010, Lorena Ochoa is one of the most successful Mexican athletes in the world. Ochoa was the Rolex Player of the Year from 2006 to 2009 and LPGA winning leader from 2006 to 2008. From its inception in 2004, the Lorena Ochoa Foundation has strived to advocate for children through programs focused on academic, sports and cultural education.

Palace Foundation’s ultimate goal is to give hope to those in need and support the local environment through its communities, offering resources, time and effort. With five sub-committees and with nearly 10 years of experience, The Palace Foundation has benefited diverse sectors:

  • Providing 60 scholarships with its Educational Committee
  • Granting more than 200 wishes with its Dreams Committee
  • Raising awareness and providing psychological intervention to more than 800 individuals through it Social Welfare Committee

COZUMEL PALACE SERVES AS OFFICIAL HOST FOR “THE CURRENT”

Under Sea Explorer and Environmentalist, Jean-Michel Cousteau, Dives at Cozumel Palace for new inspirational film

MIAMI, Fla. – (April 2013) -- Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in luxurious, all-inclusive resort accommodations – proudly announces Cozumel Palace as the official host of the documentary The Current, a film that explores the healing powers of the ocean as it follows the stories of six disabled athletes who rediscover the freedom of movement. The breathtaking views of Cozumel Palace will be the backdrop for several days of in-the-water filming for the documentary film featuring renowned underwater explorer and environmentalist, Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of world-famous Jacques Cousteau), who will narrate the film. Cousteau will also be shooting parts of the film during his scheduled dive off the shores of Cozumel the week of April 13-20, 2013.

Disabled athletes joining Cousteau in the Cozumel shoot will be first time scuba divers, and alongside Dive Paradise, and include: disabled military veteran, Jesse Murphree, awarded the Purple Heart; Rick Finkelstein, a Hollywood executive who was paralyzed in a ski accident in Aspen in 2004; quadriplegic, David Hosick who was paralyzed while playing Rugby; and Guinness World Record holder of deep diving for people with disabilities, Leo Morales.

Additional cast members of The Current include:

- Make A Hero Athlete Ambassador Missy Franklin, a teenage Olympian, who took home five medals (four gold) at the London Olympic Games

- Anthony Robles, who became a NCAA wrestling champion and ESPY Award winner despite being born with one leg

- Mallory Weggemann, London Paralympics gold medalist, paralyzed at the age of seventeen and also an ESPY award winner

- Bethany Hamilton, the inspiration for the movie “Soul Surfer”, the true story of a girl who lost her arm in a shark attack while surfing and returned to the sport through strong faith


“We accepted the opportunity for Cozumel Palace to be part of The Current because we believe the film’s inspiring message that anything is possible aligns with the Palace Resort’s message,” said Gibran Chapur, executive vice president, Palace Resorts. “We are pleased to welcome the cast, crew and Jean-Michel Cousteau, and we are confident they will fall in love with Cozumel’s unmatched diving offerings.”

The Current is being produced and directed by Kurt Miller, son of Warren Miller, one of the most respected families in action sports cinematography. The Current is a film about disabled individuals inspiring others through water sports including scuba diving, surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, sailing and stand-up paddle boarding as well as diving with whales and dolphins. The new film follows the 2012 release of the documentary, The Movement, which focused on disabled individuals learning how to ski.

Explorer, environmentalist and educator for more than four decades, Jean-Michel Cousteau has dedicated himself and his vast experience to communicate to people of all nations and generations his love and concern for our water planet. Since first being “thrown overboard” by his father at the age of seven, with newly invented SCUBA gear on his back, Jean-Michel has been exploring the ocean realm.
The son of ocean explorer Jacques Cousteau, Jean-Michel has investigated the world’s oceans aboard Calypso and Alcyone for much of his life. Honoring his heritage, Jean-Michel founded Ocean Futures Society in 1999 to carry on this pioneering work.

“I am eager and thrilled to be part of The Current. Defying the odds and striving to defy challenges, are profound aspirations that I hope viewers take to heart when experiencing this film,” said Jean-Michel Cousteau, Narrator of The Current. “Cozumel Palace offers guest access to the destination’s vast range of underwater life, and I look forward to experiencing the resort and Cozumel’s marine life.”

Refined taste, friendly service and an unrivaled location on the spectacular Caribbean Sea make Cozumel Palace the ultimate getaway for adventure travelers, divers and nature lovers. Palace Resorts recently announced a strategic partnership with dive operator, Aqua Safari, now available at Cozumel Palace. With the addition of Aqua Safari to the resort’s already unmatched offerings, Cozumel Palace guests now have the access to a world-class, experienced dive team directly on property. A gem at one of the world’s most popular diving destinations, Cozumel Palace is committed to offering guests an unmatched array of underwater experiences. All Aqua Safari excursions are managed by a dedicated team of professionals, ensuring the utmost in safety, while providing guests an innovative and memorable vacation.

Most of the resort’s 175 luxury guest rooms are Junior Ocean view suites with balcony and hammock, all with double whirlpools and five-star amenities. Two outdoor pools, including one infinity pool, are steps away from the gently lapping waters of the Caribbean Sea, beckoning snorkelers, divers and kayakers to explore beyond the shores.

Palace Resorts is now surpassing its offerings with the largest air credit promotion to Mexico this summer. Guests who book seven nights or more, for travel from April 3rd through August 24, 2013, will receive an air credit of up to $525* on packaged bookings, or a cash rebate of up to $280* for land only bookings.

Palace Resorts Announces Brand Enhancements and Names New Executive Marketing Team

MIAMI, Fla. – Palace Resorts – the company that sets the standard in five-star, all-inclusive resort accommodations – announces a new sales and marketing team that will reinforce the company’s portfolio. The Palace brand includes seven luxury properties throughout Mexico including the Le Blanc Spa Resort in Cancun, recipient of the prestigious AAA, Five Diamond award. The team will oversee property enhancements and upgraded facilities in 2012.

Having partnered with Hard Rock International to open the first-ever all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotel in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic in January 2011, Palace Resorts announced an extension of this partnership to include the first-ever Mexico all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels set to launch in 2012. In order to continue to provide the best possible resort experience to its guests, Palace Resorts has created a new marketing arm, The All-Inclusive Collection, which will independently promote only these new Hard Rock all-inclusive properties, while at the same time, reinforcing the Palace Resorts Brand with a new and separate team that will cater to the existing Palace Resort brands. This will allow both entities to market the brands independently to different audiences and segments, with a laser focus on the needs specific of each brand and product offering, while continuing to offer the highest quality service and resort amenities leisure and business guests have come to expect.


“We see a tremendous need and benefit in restructuring the Palace Resorts sales and marketing department, as this new team  will bring a new vision, level of expertise and innovative ideas to the brand, which is already positioned and recognized as the leader in the all-inclusive market,” said Gibran Chapur, executive vice president. “Palace Resorts will continue to fully support and assist its trade and tour operator partners as well as maintain the excellent rapport we have built with key industry players.” The Palace Resorts executive team is now led by the following.

  • Executive Vice President, Gibran Chapur
  • Chief Operating Officer, Sandor Winkler
  • Vice President Marketing, Kathy Halpern
  • Vice President Group Sales, Ginny Davito
  • Sales Director, Jorge Vivas
  • Public Relations Manager, Cessie Cerrato
  • Director of North American Field Sales, Ash Tembe


For more than 25 years, Palace Resorts has set the standard for what travelers now demand from a luxury all-inclusive. Today, it continues to expand and enhance the all-inclusive services and amenities, which are unlike any competitors in the marketplace. All-inclusive offerings that go above and beyond traditional offerings include:

  • Unlimited long distance calls from the guest rooms to Mexico, the continental United States, Canada, and just recently added, Latin America and Europe.
  • Included Wireless Internet in-room and throughout resort public areas, all at no cost, or included Internet use via resort business centers and lobby computers.
  • Unlimited wine by the bottle, all with 85 point ratings and above, from highly rated wineries around the world.
  • Unlimited top shelf drinks featuring brands such as Jack Daniel’s, Johnnie Walker (red and black labels), Chivas Regal and Bacardi, among many others.
  • Fine dining with no restrictions.
  • 24-hour room service including a wide selection of breakfast favorites, entrees, soups, salads, snacks and desserts.
  • Luxurious, spacious accommodations, most with stunning water views, all with double whirlpool tubs, top shelf liquor dispensers, LCD TV with international programming including HBO.


Additionally, the $1500 Resort Credit promotion offers unmatched value, allowing guests staying three nights or more to add activities -- such as spa treatments, golf rounds, room upgrades and local tours -- that would cost extra at any other hotel.

Palace Resorts also continues to be the leader in world-class entertainment, having recently hosted a sold out performance from Shakira at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort, and set to impress audiences when international superstars and Grammy winners Jon Secada and Enrique Iglesias take the stage in 2012. These, and many more major music events yet to be announced, are another way Palace Resorts creates an unmatched all-inclusive vacation experience as well as enhances the growth and prosperity of Mexico and its resort destinations, putting them on the map of avant-garde entertainment.

In 2012, Palace Resorts, in conjunction with its Hard Rock All-Inclusive Hotels, revolutionized the destination wedding industry through an exclusive partnership with celebrity wedding designer, Colin Cowie, bringing destination weddings to a whole new level. For the first time ever, Palace Resorts brides can have a themed Colin Cowie wedding of a lifetime. Through eye catching customizable packages featuring every possible inclusion, the partnership with Cowie reinforces the commitment Palace Resorts has to its bridal market, to provide unmatched, unparalleled, luxury offerings, inviting every bride and groom to step into their own personalized fairy tale at an unbeatable all-inclusive price.

Palace Resorts also offers unmatched experiences for meeting groups and corporate incentive travel, featuring the most versatile indoor and outdoor event space for groups of any size, as well as the highest quality state-of-the-art facilitates and amenities. Led by the mostly highly trained service professionals, one all-inclusive price includes personalized planning and coordination to exceed any group’s needs, as well as a choice of included meeting space and private function space, plus every all-inclusive leisure amenity available to all guests.

Consistently ranked Cancun’s number one all-inclusive luxury resort by TripAdvisor users, Le Blanc Spa Resort is the Palace Resorts five-star resort offering, targeting its own discerning audience and marketed as its own entity to bring all-inclusive to an even higher level. Le Blanc Spa Resort Le Blanc, recipient of the prestigious AAA Five Diamond Award, is located in the heart of Cancun, on one of the most stunning beaches in the Mexican Caribbean. This adults-only, all-inclusive luxury resort offers an experience of sophisticated style and lavish personalized service with a staff to guest ratio of one to one. Luxe accommodations feature spectacular views of the sparkling Caribbean Sea or the alluring Nichupte lagoon, and include 24-hour Butler service, private double whirlpool tub and premier turndown service with Petit Fours and a Comfort Menu with choices of pillows and aromatherapies.
