2018-05-04

Luxurious holiday company Belmond are organising an LGBT-exclusive weekend in Mexico after seeing a rise of LGBT families going abroad.

The hotel and leisure company is proactive in the LGBT+ community and for one weekend they are offering a chance for families to enjoy a relaxing holiday without any judgment from fellow guests.

Elio Lopez, Belmond's director of LGBT sales, told Attitude: “The commitment to diversity across the entire Belmond portfolio of properties is absolute, ours are safe, welcoming and inclusive spaces.

"But we’ve seen that more and more LGBT+ guests are now travelling with families, and the Belmond Maroma Resort on Mexico’s glorious Riviera Maya is at the head of that curve.

"So we’ve chosen to put together a special package on July 26 - 29, 2018 to encourage those families to come and stay together and play together.

"We think it’s a strong message to send to our customer base and an attractive offer in its own right.”

The planned a three-night/four-day hotel exclusively for LGBT+ families is filled with organised activities, sails around the Caribbean Sea and even cooking classes.

Set among 200 acres of landscaped gardens, the intimate 63-room resort welcomes families all year round, but for one special weekend throughout July (26-29), the resort will be opening its doors for LGBT-families.

With connecting rooms, a family pool surrounded by lush tropical palms, a children’s menu and spa treatments for all the family, it’s a holiday not to be missed.

For just $880 US Dollar per night, the price includes accommodation in one of the suites – which can accommodate two adults and two under-12 children – and a daily a-la-carte breakfast at El Restaurante, doesn’t sound too unreasonable.

Complimentary dining for up to two children under 12 and a family picnic on the beach as well as movies and popcorn nights are also included.

Guests will be able to enjoy a one-hour accompanied bike tour through the Mayan jungle and a bonfire and tales evening.

There is also a chance to enhance your experience with an added extra onto the payment.

For just $60 per family per hour, guests can sail along the Caribbean Sea on a hobie cat or take part in a master cooking class for just $45 per person.

If you are looking to treat your family, for $150 – for one parent and one kid – you can book a spa pampering session.
