Billed as one of the “50 Most Romantic Retreats” in the world by Travel + Leisure and one of the original resorts to offer an on-staff director of romance nearly a decade ago, Royal Palms Resort and Spa is taking its romantic offerings to the next level.
New this year, Royal Palms is rolling out a “Renewal Moon”, similar to a honeymoon or babymoon, where couples are encouraged to reconnect during an intimate stay that is focused on relationship renewal at every level.
From now through the end of the year, couples have the option to add-on a Renewal Moon to any resort stay and select from a romantic menu that offers a variety of reconnection activities like private coaching to rebuild their relationship, unique couples spa and wellness treatments, in-room games to spark romance and communication or a romantic dining experience. When booking a Renewal Moon, guests will also receive a welcome gift that includes an intimacy-focused game and The Surprise Date Challenge, a book that shares simple and fun ways to help couples reach new levels of connection and commitment.
“We live in a hectic world full of demanding work schedules, family obligations, racing from one activity to the next and being inundated with technology and distractions of all kinds. Couples realize that while they may live in the same household and see each other daily, they’ve lost that spark and connection that originally brought them together,” said General Manager Carlos Morales. “We’re aiming to offer a getaway experience that celebrates intimacy at all levels and helps couples rediscover one another again.”Carlos Morales, General Manager
Renewal Moon Offerings
Via Cappello: Named for a romantic residence in Verona, couples can experience a Via Cappello, a candlelit dinner in a “lovers’ corner” tucked away in various magical and imaginative settings throughout the grounds. A custom, multi-course aphrodisiac menu by T. Cook’s Executive Chef Alex Robinson and a private, dedicated server make the experience truly exclusive.
Couples Coaching: In partnership with Phoenix-based Fun Fantasy Ritual, couples can book a private session focused on rebuilding their relationship. Through date concierge services and coaching, owners Dana Lam and Martin Kupper, a couple themselves, help people improve their relationships through intentional practices that enhance romance and connection.
Citrus Ritual with Champagne and fruit: Couples can experience Alvadora Spa’s signature treatment which includes a full-body exfoliation with cascading water, followed by a custom massage. During the ritual, couples enjoy an oversized soaking tub, waterfall shower, outdoor raindrop shower and a private garden patio and fireplace reminiscent of a villa in Italy.
Yoga Nidra: While the practitioner rests comfortably in savasana (corpse pose), this systematic meditation takes you through the pancha maya kosha (five layers of self), leaving participants with a sense of wholeness. Unlike other forms of meditation in which you focus on a mantra or on your breath, Yoga Nidra asks you simply to let go or surrender.
Double Gong Meditation: Offered in partnership with Metta Yoga, participants lie on yoga mats while the sound instructor begins with a variety of small movements to open the body. Designed to bring about healing through brainwave stimulation, double gong meditation is a form of sound therapy where the gong plays softly, increasing in volume as the session progresses.
