PARADISUS PUNTA CANA FEATURED IN LAST WEEK’S EPISODE OF ABC’s HIT ROMANCE REALITY SERIES THE BACHELORETTE

Posted on by Paradisus Resorts
 

Paradisus Resorts, Meliá Hotels International’s luxury all-inclusive resorts brand, is pleased to announce Paradisus Punta Cana was featured in an episode of The Bachelorette. The episode featured a special Fantasy Suite dinner date for a lucky suitor with the newest Bachelorette, Andi Dorfman. The episode aired Monday, July 14, 2014, at 8/7c on ABC.

“We are honored that The Bachelorette chose Paradisus Punta Cana to serve as the beautiful backdrop for this episode,” said Rafael Torres, Managing Director of Paradisus Punta Cana. “Paradisus Punta Cana provides the essential elements for a romantic getaway, and we hope we helped Andi come one step closer to finding love.”

Andi Dorfman, 27, a beautiful and successful woman, has it all at first glance — a loving family, great friends and even her dream job. But she realized there was something missing, so she put her busy life on hold last September to try and find love on The Bachelor. She thought she had found her match in Juan Pablo, but in the end it was not meant to be, and Andi walked away. She did not, however, walk away from love or let that experience stop her desire to find her perfect soul mate. Follow Andi’s search for her soul mate in the 10th edition of The Bachelorette Mondays (8:00–10:00 p.m., ET) on ABC.
Viewers of the show can experience their own romantic getaways to Paradisus Punta Cana, as the property is offering an exclusive package for travel in 2014:
LOVE Like The Bachelorette at Paradisus Punta Cana
•7-nights in the Royal Service Garden Villa (where The Bachelorette stayed)
•Dinner for two at Passion by Martin Berasategui
•Bali bed at the Royal Service pool, reserved daily with one bottle of champagne and fruit

PARADISUS RESORTS OFFER FUN AND FITNESS

Posted on by Paradisus Resorts
 

Paradisus Resorts, Meliá Hotels International’s luxury all-inclusive resorts brand, is now offering three NEW complimentary Life Enriching Experiences that will teach guests new skills, introduce them to inventive forms of fitness and fabulousness and provide tons of excitement. The new line-up includes Pole Dance Classes; Aqua Spinning and Diamond tutorials.

Paradisus Playa del Carmen La Perla in Mexico offers complimentary Pole Dance classes for guests looking for fun and exercise while enjoying their vacation. La Perla’s pole dance classes run 60 minutes long and are offered twice a week at the resort’s outdoor Palapa. Each class is taught by a certified pole dancing instructor who will explain all the basic steps and movements, along with tips to avoid any muscular injuries. This class, which usually has between 15-40 participants, is a complete workout, giving people energy, flexibility and strength. Paradisus’ pole dancing has become so popular with guests that the resort had to recently purchase additional poles! And the popularity doesn’t just stop at the resort – in fact, there are plans for pole dance to become an Olympic sport.

Paradisus Cancun knows that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and for this reason, one of Paradisus’ most exclusive life enriching experiences – Diamond tutorials – takes place at the resort every Tuesday, exclusively for Royal Service guests. Thanks to Paradisus Cancun’s team of experts, guests have the opportunity to learn about the different cuts of these exquisite gemstones, as well as the mounting types that can be applied and how to identify them. The experts are even able to tailor the experience to couples, showing them the most select variety of pieces (which can last for up to two hours).

Paradisus Palma Real and Paradisus Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic have added the latest exercise craze– Aqua Spinning– to their roster of guest activities. Aqua Cycling is similar to indoor cycling classes, except taught in a pool, where water plays the role of resistance on the wheel. The class burns up to 800 calories an hour and is known to fight cellulite. Fans of the activity especially love that it is easy on their joints and the class is also highly recommended for women who are pregnant. Paradisus Palma Real offers Aqua Spinning in its main pool every Monday and Wednesday at noon. Paradisus Punta Cana offers the class every Tuesday and Thursday at noon. Classes allow for up to twelve participants.

Other unique complimentary Life Enriching experiences offered at Paradisus Resorts include Flower Arranging, Fruit Art classes, sand castle making, landscape painting, crafts, tequila/wine tasting, cooking classes, tango lessons, massage lessons, and more. www.paradisus.com
