I’m sure we could all use a vacation getaway about now, but public health guidelines suggest otherwise. Fairmont Vancouver Airport is coming to the rescue with its one of a kind Vacation to Nowhere stay package. Until May 1stm would-be holiday-makers can satisfy their travel cravings with this unique partnership with Fairmont Mayakoba. Located in Mexico’s stunning Riviera Maya, this cheeky vacation-staycation recreates some of Fairmont Mayakoba’s signature offerings, transporting guests to Mexico without ever leaving the airport.
Guests who book the Vacation to Nowhere package will find their Fairmont Signature Room decked out with themed décor, including a beach lounge chair with palapa umbrella and special touches couriered directly from Fairmont Mayakoba. Upon arrival to the room, guests will also be greeted with a bucket of Coronas on ice.
Vacation to Nowhere guests can get those “beach resort vibes” while enjoying some poolside fun with a two hour private pool reservation, complete with themed snacks and cocktails for two. Cocktail choices include the option of Fairmont Mayakoba’s signature Habanero Margarita or Mayakoba Punch. And because a true Fairmont Mayakoba experience isn’t complete without a little pampering, the package also includes a $120.00 CAD Absolute Spa credit that can be used for one of the spa’s 150 services – including spray tans, so that, those who might need it, can return from their Mexican holiday with more than a mid-winter glow.
The experience continues into the evening, featuring a family-style dinner prepared by Fairmont Vancouver Airport’s Sous Chef Abraham Zamorano Ruiz, who began his career training under Chefs in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. This authentic menu of celebrated dishes from Mayakoba restaurants includes such dishes as Prawn Aguachile, Zarandeado Fish Filet with Pico de Gallo, and Grill Octopus with Habanero Aioli. Dishes will be paired with a lineup of crafted, tequila-based cocktails.
The package also includes a late check-out of 2:00pm the following day so guests can continue their leisurely vacation pace with plenty of time to sleep in and enjoy breakfast in bed.
As a bonus for those who book the package, Vacation to Nowhere guests are entered into a draw to win a four night stay with breakfast included at (the actual) Fairmont Mayakoba – valid for one year from whenever international travel for Canadians officially reopens.
“The appetite for travel still exists and we wanted to create something for the people who are longing for an escape” says Lesliann Kuhn, Director, Sales and Marketing. “We might not be able to promise sunshine and a sandy beach, but we can promise a weekend of fun and one reminiscent of vacations past.”
