ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - February 06, 2014) - Vacation Express, the Atlanta-based vacation experts and planners are reinventing how travel consumers are catered to. Holding conversations, understanding their needs and most of all, molding memorable vacation experiences, Vacation Express is connecting with consumers. With that includes new vacation packages catered to new Mommies and Daddies desperate for some precious R+R before their bundle of joy is born.
Vacation Express understands what it means to be a new mom in the making; hence they traveled to various all-inclusive hotels and resorts to uncover the ideal escapes with just the right amount of fun; just like the OB ordered. We call this the Mommy-in-the Making prescription.
Grand Princess Riviera Maya Yucatán Platinum Suites provide adults-only R+R with a Zen-minimalist Japanese meet Mayan décor, yet guests can still enjoy the nightly activities from pumping nightlife to theatrical performances throughout the resort's extensive grounds. This special section of the grand resort includes 104 platinum suites, which provides the "quiet" each new parent is craving. In-room premium bar for the future dad and a mini bar are stocked daily, which means plenty of water bottles for the new mom. Suites provide a private balcony or terrace for those simple moments that include catching up with the latest edition of On Becoming Baby Wise by Gary Ezzo and pediatrician Robert Bucknam.
Other amenities include 24-hour room service, use of comfy bathrobes and slippers during the entire stay, in-room gift upon arrival, reserved area on the beach with butler service, one-day access to the spa's hydrotherapy pool , private check-in with cold towel on arrival and welcome drink [for dad, of course]. With the platinum suites 24-hour concierge lounge guests can arrange their daily dinner reservations for the à la carte restaurants, check their emails or search the Web with onsite computers, dad can order his favorite drink at the private bar [featuring domestic, international and premium brand drinks], while mom indulges in an iced-sugar free latte; ideal for her low-sugar non-alcohol diet.
"After enjoying the many flavors found at the nine à la carte restaurants, my personal favorite was La Hacienda, which featured authentic Mexican fare," says Mavian Arocha-Rowe, director of content and brand communications for Vacation Express. "Throughout the entire resort it is evident that service with a smile is their motto. However, here at La Hacienda you find precious older women speaking lovely words to you in Spanish as they shape and knead tortillas in front of the grill and prepare unique hors d'oeuvres that quench any possible prego craving. Plus, fresh organic meats are served and grilled at your table; providing the right dose of iron for those in dire need of lasting energy," she says.
Plus, mom and dad can enjoy free Wi-Fi in their room, private pools and discounts on green fees at external golf, spa treatments and motorized water sports.
Departing the nature-driven oasis at Grand Riviera Princess and arriving at Sandos Cancun Luxury Experience Resort, moms and dads are welcomed by untainted indulgence and modern eclectic décor throughout the hotel's pristine grounds. Guests' spirits are hyped with contemporary flair and at-your-fingertip hospitality where catering to babymooners is a natural form of art.
Luxury all-inclusive is defined by Sandos Cancun. Their Seasons restaurant is a reawakening of the senses where Master Chef Francisco Sixto creates a memorable molecular culinary menu with a touch of foams, Earth, air and spheres -- worthy of a standing ovation. "I have traveled to various hotels around the world and I cannot stop raving about the dining experience found within this resort, specifically Seasons. The menu changes often so regardless of the stay's length, guests will be enthralled by uniqueness," says Arocha-Rowe.
Guests can enjoy complimentary use of Spa de Mar's solarium, relaxation rooms, sauna, Jacuzzi, plus moms can plunge into their cold immersion pools; ideal for the bun in the oven hot flash feeling. For those who want to complete their babymoon with the upmost experience, a pre-natal massage is a must, followed by a Pevonia Sensitive Skin facial [perfect for the new moms who are experiencing various skin changes].
After the spa, guests can soak up the sun in one of their three infinity pools, which appear to be falling right into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean or lay on one of their beach Bali-like covered swing beds for an afternoon nap, accompanied by the sounds of crashing waves. Regardless of where moms decide to nestle their prego body and mind, Sandos' butler service makes any new mommy feel special. Serving up smiles with compliments they prepare Babymoon Mojitos [sugar and alcohol-free] and Babymoon Pink Cocktails [sugar-free cranberry juice with a splash of ok] to those who carry the bump.
Whether new moms choose to indulge in utopia at Sandos Cancun or uncover the flora at Grand Princess Riviera Maya, the travel planners at Vacation Express are experts when it comes to planning memorable babymoons. And just like the OB ordered, directions for Mommy-in-the Making prescription include: Pack light, unwind the mind with no agenda and plan to chill. For information on planning a babymoon, contact Vacation Express at 800.309.4717 or visit vacationexpress.com.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Vacation Express is a US-operated tour operator and is part of the Sunwing Travel Group Inc. Babymooners keep in mind; according to the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, the safest time to travel is from 18 to 24 weeks. By this time, the nausea of the first trimester is hopefully a distant memory and moms are not quite as uncomfortable as they were in the beginning weeks.

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will w...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...

The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
