Travel Impressions Takes Agent Partners on 'Virtual Vacation' to Le Blanc Spa Resort

by Jessica Montevago

Travel Impressions will take its #OnLocaTIon program to the newly opened, Le Blanc Spa Resort in Los Cabos. The social media takeover aims to provide agents with virtual first-hand knowledge via Facebook and Instagram to help them sell the premiere adults-only all-inclusive paradise more effectively.

Agents can follow Travel Impression’s Marketing Specialist Ali Ragozzino and Communications Manager Su-Jit Lin with the hashtag #BestofLeBlanc from April 30 to May 4, as they highlight the resort’s luxury amenities. The property, which opened fall 2017, boasts more than 370 suites at more than 760 square feet with butler service. Followers will receive a sneak peek of the 29,000 square foot Blanc Spa with 28 treatment rooms, fitness and wellness center with yoga and Pilates classes. The virtual vacation will tour sever gourmet dining options, including a seven-course tasting menu at its French fusion restaurant, Lumiere.

The resort is also currently offering a resort credit of typically $1,500 per couple and up to $2,500 for extended stays.

The takeover is part of Travel Impressions’ EducaTIon First initiative, a familiarization tool for retailers who can follow the informative campaign from the convenience of their desktop or mobile device. Each campaign offers insightful tips agents can use to more efficiently sell the resort partners in Travel Impressions’ comprehensive portfolio.

Tip of the Day

The cruise experience starts the moment a guest books their cruise. It won’t finish until they are back at home after their vacation. Many things happen in between. Airports, flights, transfers, terminals, embarkation, life onboard, ports of call, shore excursions, disembarkation, etc. None of us, alone, is in a position to guarantee a front-to-end amazing experience. But together, we can.
