One of the reasons for my Mexico trip was to visit an exceptional resort new to Fit Bodies, Inc. and part of the Original Resorts chain of fine hotels.

We already work with Temptation Cancun and if you haven’t visited there yet you must make plans to try it soon. Desire Resort and Spa Cancun is in the prestigious area of Puerto Morales and the newest member of the elite group of resorts available to members of Fit Bodies, Inc.

When we arrived to meet Mario for our tour, we walked across a wooden bridge where the resident crocodiles were lurking below. Big ones, little ones and some apparently come when called.

Well, I made sure to make it across that bridge pretty quickly.

The lobby was welcoming and so were the smiles on the faces of the staff. We walked outside to an open spaced are where comfortable lounging couches, chairs and tables were assembled and nearby a large circular bar which remains open most hours of the day and night.

This resort is for couples only and of the opposite sex. This resort is also clothing optional as was apparent when we wandered over to the beautiful pool and beach areas.

Rooms are in clusters scattered throughout the gorgeous grounds and there is a ground floor and second floor option. Pros will be able to upgrade to beachfront or suites if they so desire but with the beautiful beach, pool, hot tub, restaurants, disco and play room areas, there is really not much reason to be in your room.

We wandered upstairs to the disco that was being renovated and probably complete by the time you read this blog. There is a separate play room area that is accessible at the back of the disco and an outside deck where those who chose to smoke can still be near the festivities.

Another climb took us to the rooftop hot tub. This is the first swim up bar, hot tub I have every witnessed.

Everything here is upscale, with attention to detail and pleasing to the most discerning guest.

Enjoy fine dining at two gourmet restaurants, with a wine list and menu that will be sure to please the wine lovers and foodies out there. Other casual choices are available including 24 hour room service.

This coupled with the beautiful grounds, beach and rooms makes Desire the prefect option for those of you who prefer the clothing optional package with a first class touch of elegance.

Yoga/pilates teachers or group fitness pros are welcome to book here if you will be traveling with someone of the opposite sex. We are also looking for specialty programming such as partner yoga, wellness sessions, and welcome your ideas of ways to add that special touch to this fabulous resort.

The General Manager, Martin is very excited to have us on board and welcomes your friends to travel along at special reduced pricing.

Extra nights or upgrades can even be complimentary to you if you bring along others who book at that special Fit Bodies, Inc. rate.

For years I have been hearing the same question from many of our members – when are you going to start booking pros at Desire?  Well, we HAVE delivered. Now you need you to bring it on!!!!

Check it out!!

Now is WOW!

I spent an enlightening afternoon with Oscar and Arturo at the newest resort in our selection and the newest BRAND by AMresorts. NOW Riviera Maya is spectacular. The hotel is in the prestigious area of Puerto Morales. For those not familiar with Mexican geography, this area is basically the beginning of the Riviera Maya region as you leave Cancun proper and the airport.

Travel time from CUN airport is about 30 minutes. Puerto Morales is home to lots of celebrities because of the location, natural habitat and beautiful beaches.

NOW Riviera Maya is nestled very near the little village center.

THIS JUST IN!! This just in…. THIS blog was written before the official announcement last week changing the name of this resort to NOW Jade. The reason for this quick change is the announcement of the next NOW resort coming on board Wednesday May 5th called NOW Sapphire which is also in the Puerto Morales area of Cancun. Read more about NOW Sapphire soon.


Back to NOW Jade:

The hotel: We pulled up and saw this terra-cota monstrosity appearing at the end of a dirt road with flags flying and a huge welcoming lobby in the middle of the circular driveway. This must be it but WOW… We were greeted in an expansive lobby where guests were seated as they checked in at small desks rather than standing in line at a huge counter.

The lounge area was lovely and the circular bar at the edge of the lobby gave us the view of what was to come. WOW

Oscar found us and after a short meeting with him and his assistant Arturo, I knew the pros were in good hands with people who really care about the program looking to expand and broaden the basic classes and programming.

Oscar took us on a tour as we walked into the Premier Club lounge. Here find free wireless, snacks, high-end liquors and a beautiful green color theme. This private area is always available to the select group of guests that pay extra to stay in on this side and FREE to Fit Bodies, Inc. fitness and tennis pros and their guests. YES I said tennis – more on that further down.

From there we ventured to the quiet pool in this area. The music is light jazz and at the time we were there only adult guests enjoying the ambience. This area is not off limits to children but they were more at home on the other side of the resort where the large river style pools merged together to form the inviting entertainment area. There is an island near the edge by the beach, which is a perfect location for the aqua and the land classes.

On the way to the pool we passed the restaurants, which are near to each other. We walked across a wooden bridge over a coy pond to get to the Asian restaurant and the other gourmet restaurants were all nearby. The casual ala Carte restaurant is adjacent to the activities pool and the buffet where you can eat inside or out is overlooking the beach and Caribbean Sea. This is where we had lunch and WOW what a spread. The salmon was done to perfection and here again, I can have chips and guacamole any time of the day. While Larry and Oscar got their chocolate fix, I made myself a cheese and fruit plate that would rival any fine dining restaurant.

The gym is comparable in size to the resort itself. WOW. I was impressed. There is actually plenty of room to teach classes there or hold a bootcamp but the outside areas are easier for guests to find. I think best unless it is raining, heaven forbid but it does happen sometimes.

This resort is large boasting a convention center, sports bar and disco and more. The rooms are double in size compared to most resorts you will visit with a huge 700 square feet of living space.

Bring your children, 2 under 12 with no extra charge or travel with your spouse, friend or alone. You cannot go wrong with this fabulous resort.

Tennis pros: 5 courts on top of the building!! WOW! They are looking for you.

PLEASE contact me if you have any questions but book this resort before it fills up. Check the description page under TRAVEL SPOTS for more details and keep in mind that the schedule is always subject to change.

We are pricing this one as we do all of our family resorts at $375 administration fee due at the time of booking with a $150 gift each week. As always, special discounts are available for family and friends to travel with you and take advantage of this unique spot in paradise.
