RIU Palace Punta Cana: Total Reno,
Including Fitness Facilities
This month the RIU Palace Punta Cana
will reopen after having had a top-tobottom renovation. It includes new rooms
(the accommodations total is now 676),
restaurants, pools, and entertainment
programs for children, but let's focus on
fitness. The gym, spa, and sauna are new,
there are four upgraded tennis courts, daily
fitness activities are held in the RiuFit
area, and the resort has invested in new
equipment for windsurfing, kayaking, and
snorkeling. The rejuvenated RIU also offers
guests one introductory scuba-diving lesson
in the pool.
High-season rates start at $2,445 per
week dbl, but note that the upsell here is
irresistible. Why? Because if your clients pay
about 25 percent more for a weekly charge
of $2,900, they'll get a 721-sq.-ft. suite
that's twice as large as the entry-level room.

Stonefield Villa Resort:
Lucian Wellness
In May Stonefield Villa Resort announced
that it was repositioning itself as a health
and wellness property under the banner,
Escape to Wellness. This new program "offers
a series of experiences year-round that
integrates all the natural elements of Saint
Lucia," says Cybelle Brown, founder and
managing director.
For example, the Aug. 5-12 Sweat Escapes

Cayman Islands: Independent Fitness Facilities
Since Grand Cayman is such an easy island for exploring without a tour guide, two
businesses unafilliated with any particular hotel (and serving guests from any hotel,
condo, or villa) have recently opened for business. What they're offering makes for a good
suggestion when an agent's fitness-oriented clients need just a tad more convincing.
The Cayman Yoga Club offers a full menu of yogic experiences, from power vinyasa
and slow-flow jams to more restorative and meditative sessions. The goals of the club
and all who go there include "serenity of body and mind through breath, movement,
conscious living, and community." Cayman Yoga Club is located in the West Shore
Shopping Plaza on Seven Mile Beach, so it's easily accessible to the majority of resorts
on Grand Cayman. Most weekdays it offers four or five different clases, and weekends,
two or three. caymanyogaclub.com
It's hard to think of anything the new School of Fitness in the Strand of West Bay
does not offer. Its programs include individual and group lessons and classes in CrossFit
(classes just for kids, too), CrossFit Lite, personal training, general fitness training,
mobility, and zumba. The School of Fitness is open weekdays and weekends. Because
SoF just opened (yes, you read it here first), it has not finalized its marketing. "We do
intend to make contact with nearby hotels in order to accommodate their customers,"
says spokesperson Rodrick Evans. schooloffitnesscayman.com
