Groups that want to escape the touristy scene of Cancun and the Riviera Maya will like the newly opened (as of Nov. 3) Zoëtry Villa Rolandi Isla Mujeres Cancun. The exclusive retreat located on Mujeres Island off the coast of Cancun features 35 oceanfront suites with Jacuzzi terraces and a whole bundle of amenities that emphasize wellness—creating the perfect atmosphere for attendees who need to get away.
As part of the Zoëtry’s Endless Privileges program, the luxury experience starts at the beginning with a 40-foot yacht transfer from Cancun to the property’s private marina. The program extends to the property’s all-inclusive offerings, which include top-shelf international and domestic spirits as well as gourmet dining with organic, local and gluten-free options. Casa Rolandi, for instance, features gourmet Swiss and Northern Italian cuisines. The program also includes a complimentary 20-minute spa treatment and complimentary Wi-Fi.
“Zoëtry Villa Rolandi is the only true all inclusive on Isla Mujeres,” says Tere Bañales, the resort’s group sales manager. “Also, the resort’s size (only 35 suites, all oceanfront) creates an intimate experience that allows for extra personalized service to each guest. This also makes it perfect for incentive groups.”
The property’s dedicated event planners can help groups customize onsite teambuilding activities—several of which incorporate the local culture. For instance, attendees can decide to take Spanish lessons, especially helpful for those who need to practice the language for work. Another class, Silver Creations, teaches attendees about the Mexican art of silver design, while there is also a class that delves into the history of Mayan legends and rituals. Some other popular onsite teambuilding options are yoga sessions, cooking lessons and wine tastings.
For those groups that want to venture offsite, there are a variety of natural attractions and activities, adds Bañales. Groups can plan a turtle farm visit or swim with the dolphins. Attendees that want to learn more about Mayan history can take an archaeological tour nearby or venture back to the mainland to visit the popular Mayan ruins of Tulum and Chichen Itza. The hotel can also organize a CSR activity for those groups looking to give back to the Mexican community.
Whatever the group decides, a high-end cocktail, meal and suite will be waiting at the end of the day for attendees to continue to relax and unwind.
