This post brought to you by Now Resorts & Spas. All opinions are 100% mine.

Anyone else spend these cold winter days dreaming of a tropical vacation?  I can almost feel the sand between my toes and the sun on my arms.  It’s a far cry from having to bang a half-dozen times on my mailbox to get the ice to shatter enough to open it.

My day dreams are being fueled right now by Now Resorts & Spas.  I saw photos from their resorts recently and I it made me wish I could hop a plane and head out to one of their four locations.  Three resorts are in Mexico and one is in the Dominican Republic, and they’re all gorgeous.

Now Resorts & Spas

One of the things I like most about Now Resorts & Spas is that even though they’re an All-inclusive luxury resort they have a strong focus on Family travel.  This is important to us when we consider travel plans because when we vacation, we vacation as a family.  Bubbles could enjoy the Explorer’s Kids Club (ages 3-12) and Austin would be able to ditch the lame “old people” and check out the Core Zone Teens Club (ages 13-17).  Both have supervised activities by specially trained staff at no extra cost.

Now Resorts & Spas has a unique vacation concept called Unlimited-Luxury® where everything is included.  Specifically you can expect the following:

  • Spacious suites with standout amenities like 24-hour room service
  • Average of seven gourmet, a la carte dining options ranging from Mexican cuisine to Italian, French and more – no wristbands or reservations required
  • Unlimited Connectivity, a suite of interactive apps allowing guests to call send and receive international calls without incurring roaming charges, create personalized profiles to contact staff directly, receive up-to-date daily activity calendars and more
  • Sip, Savor & See Dining Experience, allowing guests to enjoy dinner and entertainment at all nearby participating resorts
  • Now Spa by Pevonia offering an array of indulgent treatments, from hydrotherapy to a massage to indigenous rituals. Features products from OPI and Pevonia

Each individual resort has a few different features and amenities.  Picking a favorite spot will be the hardest part of the entire vacation.

  1. I would love to visit the Dominican Republic again! My husband and I had an amazing time there on our honeymoon – I miss it!

  2. Wow, they are hard to pick from but if I were to win, I would choose Larimar Puta Cana – because it has baseball batting cages, I have three boys who all play year round baseball and a husband who has been coaching for over 20 years so that would be the best of both worlds – to vacation in a tropical setting yet still have a little sporting fun. I also like that it has a casino as well.

    Never heard of these resorts before and we have been planning on doing something for a trip when my son graduates in June and Dominican Republic is on that list.

  22. Hey Liza!

    My wife and I just returned from perhaps the best vacation of our entire lives, which also happened to be our Honeymoon! We stayed at Now Amber in Puerto Vallarta and the entire experience warrants an easy 5-Star, A+ rating. From the minute Carlos greeted us with a chilled glass of champagne and an ice-cold orange scented towel at valet, to the minute Roberto sadly helped carry our bags down from our room to our departing taxi, we were treated like royalty. This is something that you just don’t find nowadays and it was a welcomed surprise.

    Having researched All-Inclusive resorts for a few weeks before stumbling upon Now Amber, we knew this was the place for us once we saw what great reviews the property had received on TripAdvisor and similar sites. Compared to similar resorts the price was better and the overall vibe was that everything from the location to the food to the service was amazing.

    It seemed like every guest we met while there said they had been to countless other All-Inclusive resorts all over the world and this was by far the best they’d ever been to. We felt so lucky to have found such an amazing place on our first ever visit to an All-Inclusive resort!

    Every single person who works at Now Amber was extremely professional and genuine. No matter what they were doing everyone always responded to us with “My Pleasure.” It was almost laughable because everyone was so unbelievably nice!

    The food was all delicious and served in the most artistic way possible. No matter where we chose to eat, every restaurant felt like it was the best one on the property. We ate at the Italian, French, Mexican, Japanese, and Market Cafe restaurants for dinner two times while we were there. Every single meal deserved 5-stars. Every drink we ordered was also very delicious and the best part was the never stopped flowing until we chose to turn in for the night! Leon was our favorite lobby bartender, Javier & Jose were the best pool bar bartenders ever, and Jonathan & Hugo were the best poolside bartenders during our stay.

    Perhaps the favorite thing about our entire stay was the pool area and the Entertainment Staff. Although there was eight or so different entertainment staff, Alejandro and Hugo were our favorites! Every day they made us laugh and we thoroughly enjoyed partaking in all of their different games and entertainment.

    I could go on and on about how amazing this resort is, but alas I must conclude. Now that we’ve had the chance to experience this resort with just us two, we cannot wait to return (hopefully soon) with all of our friends and family. This is definitely a place that we foresee ourselves visiting for many years to come!

    Good luck and have fun :)

  23. I’d love to go to Now Jade Riviera Cancun.
