A Kid-Influenced Fiesta with Grand Velas

Planning your kid’s birthday celebration is made easier and more festive with Grand Velas Riviera Maya — all you have to do is book a family stay in Mexico.

Now included at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya, kids’ birthday party celebrations come complete with a family stay at the AAA Five Diamond resort. Guests choose from an unforgettable celebration in either the Kids’ Club or the Mayan jungle. Birthday celebrations in the Club consist of ocean-front scenery, while the jungle boasts a more naturally immersed approach.

The birthday party venue is decorated with balloons, traditional Mexican flare and, of course, a personalized birthday cake.

Let the kids enjoy Mexican candies after a swing at the piñata or head over to the XBox and Wii for some active gaming. Sit with the kids crafting, creating custom dreamcatchers and playing mini golf.

The birthday party celebration comes included in the resort’s nightly rate, but must be booked with the hotel concierge at least two days in advance. Kids’ parties take place during normal Club hours. Party planners and hotel concierges can accommodate any special requests and add-ons for an additional cost.

For those with tweens and teens hitting milestone birthdays, don’t forget the Billionaire’s Birthday Package for your kid’s over-the-top requests. For families looking to go above and beyond the birthday call of duty, the $2 million price tag on the birthday package includes private jet round-trip transportation (from anywhere in the United States, Mexico or Canada) and a luxury private check-in. Upon checking in, the birthday kids receive a welcome edible gold popsicle and goodie bags, including an Apple iWatch. The birthday prince or princess also enjoys three-night accommodations in one of the two-bedroom Presidential Suites.

Along with new tech and luxury digs, the Billionaire’s Birthday Package also includes exclusive access to the resort’s award-winning spa for a signature Gold Treatment. After the spa, birthday girls receive a custom designer dress by Pineda Covalin before a slew of other surprises.

During the party, the birthday host and friends enjoy a skydive or flyboard experience, live DJ entertainment, a candy bar, a fireworks show and a special performance by a top pop artist, ranging from Pitbull to Maroon 5.

As if the custom dress and spa treatment isn’t enough, birthday queens and kings also enjoy the Rent Your Rock program, including high-end diamonds on loan for the big event.

The party food and décor are all custom designed by impeccable staff chefs and planners along with incredible experiences. Expect welcome mocktails and cocktails for adults by master mixologists, as well as an onslaught of luxury touches.

In addition to the billionaire party price tag for grand birthdays, hotel room rates begin at $434, based on double occupancy and include meals, drinks, 24-hour in-suite service, a fitness center, taxes and gratuity.
