Four new hotels, four luxurious destinations.
Beloved for its distinct brand of edgy, high-energy luxury amenities, Hard Rock International and the All Inclusive Collection introduce the all-inclusive Hard Rock Hotels that save meeting planners valuable time and money. Joining the recently opened Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta and Hard Rock Hotel Cancun opened this past August as the first Hard Rock Hotels in Mexico. A third property is also set to debut in the Riviera Maya in early 2013.
Offering all-inclusive packages for a variety of planner budgets, the All Inclusive Collection lets groups enjoy unlimited functions, meeting space, dining, entertainment, activities, Wi-Fi, and long-distance calls for one upfront price.
Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta, which held its grand opening in August, epitomizes the brand’s signature mix of adventure and luxury. The 348-room resort, on Mexico’s Pacific coastline in Riviera Nayarit, has 6,300 square feet of meeting space and a long list of activities to keep guests entertained. From R&R time at the two oceanfront pools and signature Rock Spa, to the nightly parties at the resort’s outdoor amphitheater, Hard Rock Hotel Vallarta has a diversion for every mood and whim. Six restaurants, four bars and lounges, the Body Rock Fitness Center, tennis, volleyball, basketball, seven-hole pitch-and-putt golf, plus a dive pool for scuba- diving lessons round out the extensive on-site recreational offerings.
Only Hard Rock can create the rockin’ meeting experiences that attendees will talk about for years to come. At all four of the All Inclusive Collection hotels, meeting space can be transformed to accommodate everything from grand galas to wild theme parties, and the latest in audiovisual equipment means planners have the tools they need to pull off the most high-maintenance of meetings. VAT exemption, applicable to foreign meetings held in Mexico, will also help planners’ bottom lines.
