Why Palace Resorts is ‘Awe-Inclusive’

When travelers hear that a resort is all-inclusive, it typically means that the accommodations, meals, soft drinks and just some of the activities are included in one price. Unfortunately, much to their budget’s dismay, they find out later that other things they want to enjoy come at an added on price.
Palace Resorts, with locations in Jamaica, Cancun, Cozumel, and Isla Mujeres in the Caribbean, wants to change what travelers know as all-inclusive to their ‘awe-inclusive’ packages, which includes an impressive list of amenities and activities. Guests enjoy beautiful accommodations that feature in-room double whirlpool tubs, bathrooms with CHI brand products and 24-hour room service.

To get the party started, the room is also supplied with specially-ranked wines of 80 points or higher and brand name spirits throughout the resort, and liquor dispensers with brand name labels of whisky, rum, tequila and vodka in the room. These spirits include Jack Daniels, Johnnie Walker (red and black labels), Ballantine’s, and Chivas Regal; Grey Goose, Smirnoff, and Blat vodkas; Beefeater and Tanqueray gins; Fundador, Presidente and Don Pedro brandies; Bacardi and Havana Club rums.
While many resorts charge daily fees for internet use on top of their all-inclusives, Palace Resort includes Wi-Fi and unlimited phone calls to the Continental U.S., Canada and landlines in Mexico so you can check in at home or with the office while you’re away without worrying about racking up additional charges.
There’s plenty to do at Palace Resorts locations and non-motorized water sports are built-in in their awe-inclusive packages, including snorkeling, sailing and boat rides. Guests can try the Flowrider surfing challenge and see how long they can stay on the board, as well as yoga and Pilates on the beach, beach soccer, beach volleyball, billiards, pool volleyball, table tennis, and use of the fitness center.
