FORT LAUDERDALE, FL – (June 8, 2009) – Blue Tulum Resort & Spa, the Riviera Maya’s premier five-star all-inclusive, has expanded its family product, adding a new Kids Club program and Spa Kids amenities just in time for the peak summer family travel season to Mexico.

Kids Club

The Kids Club program carries the Mayan name BAAXAL PAALA, which translates to “games for children.”  Certainly this new program lives up to its name, offering a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities, including darts, billiards, ping pong, educational and video games featuring XBOX 360, and more.  The Kids Club boasts a staff of highly qualified childcare professionals, and its own snack bar with menu choices designed especially with kids in mind.  The BAAXAL PAALA Kids Club is open to children ages four to 12.  Daily hours of operation extend from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., providing ample time for parents to enjoy the resort’s adult pleasures.

Spa Kids

Blue Tulum Resort & Spa is embracing the new “Generation Diva” trend recently espoused in Newsweek, with the introduction of a new series of Spa Kids amenities.  Designed to promote family bonding through holistic treatments and relaxation, Spa Kids amenities enable children to enjoy professional spa treatments alongside their parents in an exclusive private environment.  Mothers are paired with daughters; fathers with sons, for a full range of spa treatments, including massages, facials, scrubs, wraps, reflexology, manicures, pedicures, waxing, and more.

Spa Kids services are designed for children ages four to 12, and range in price from $30 for a makeup session to $50 for a chocolate body wrap.  Massages and facials are $40.

“As any parent knows, kids are among the hardest travelers to please; they’re always looking for something new,” said Luis Fortanell, director of operations, sales and marketing, Blue Tulum Resort & Spa.  “The combination of our new Kids Club program and Spa Kids amenities keeps the whole family happy.”
