Earth-inclusive: Palace Resorts weaves luxury with sustainability

In line with hosmarkhotel’s Going Greener strategy, Palace Resorts takes its environmental responsibility very seriously, focusing on reducing its carbon footprint and also mitigating its effects.  Both Moon Palace Cancun and Moon Palace The Grand Cancun are well known for their vast number of bedrooms, extensive meeting facilities and for offering the highest standard of all-inclusive luxury, but little is known of the company’s commitment to recycling, energy saving and the protection of wildlife, flora and fauna.  Iguanas, coati, agouti,

London is open for business!

The Hosmarkhotels team had a brilliant time at the hotly anticipated opening of the Pan Pacific London, just minutes from Liverpool Street station, on Bishopsgate in the heart of the city of London.   We were all excited to meet up with some of our industry friends after months of zoom calls and apparently they were too, since the turnout was amazing with 400 guests.  The launch event kicked off in the public plaza with fizz and canapes and we enjoyed

Across the world, our hoteliers and travel colleagues have found their own ways to keep occupied during the pandemic and to help keep their enthusiasm and motivation at its best ready for the return of visitors to their countries.  We’ve checked in on the other side of the world with Bruno Bosquet, head of MICE for the Beachcomber Resorts & Hotels group in Mauritius. It is great to see our friend and colleague getting to know his island better.

Have a look and you’ll be fascinated too how these little creatures can make such a difference and how we need to protect them. United Nations World Bee Day.

Our Lesley helping the fight against Covid19

Signing up as a vaccination volunteer is a fab way to spend time during furlough – it’s extremely rewarding and very social.  Its heart-warming to see so many people come through the doors with positivity, hope and smiles and then leave with a newfound confidence and spring in their step. I’m in awe how tirelessly the medical teams are working – Club Batchwood in St Albans can cope with up to 2000 people per day! But its also so wonderful

The ‘escape package’

As an event planner, we think you’ll find the new all-inclusive 5 star package for groups from Beachcomber Resorts and Hotels in Mauritius well-named!

Beachcomber have included not only the essential but also the desirable elements of a programme, such as branded spirits and rum cocktails in the drinks package and a sommeliers selection of wine

A very different Christmas…

Just before Christmas, Roger and I made our annual trip to sunny Cancun to take part in the Palace Resorts sales convention and find out what’s on the horizon for the group of 10 five star all-inclusive resorts in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Los Cabos and Jamaica. Staying at Moon Palace Cancun, we enjoyed balmy evening temperatures at the Christmas themed welcome cocktail, complete with fairy lights and entertainment (much too hot for the required Christmas jumper) and as Brits abroad,
