In Hispanic cultures, many celebrate the coming-of-age of their daughters with a quinceañera on her 15th birthday. In the US we have Sweet Sixteen parties—some more elaborate than others (thanks, MTV)—for both males and females, and Jewish cultures celebrate Bar and Bat Mitzvahs. But one thing remains, no matter how you choose to celebrate, this day is all about your beloved teen.
To cater to some of the world’s most elite teenagers on their special day, Grand Velas Resorts in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit are offering a new “Billionaire’s Birthday Package.” The sister properties are pulling out the stops to ensure your son or daughter has the party of their dreams.
The $2 million package includes a three-night stay in one of the two resorts two-bedroom presidential suites and breakfast for them and 10 of their friends each morning. To kick off the celebrations, you and your teen will jump aboard a private jet which offers roundtrip transportation from anywhere in the U.S., Mexico or Canada. Upon arrival, they'll recieve edible gold popsicles and an Apple iWatch.
As a part of the offer, your teen will also receive a “Gold Treatment” from the spa as well as a custom designer dress by Pineda Covalin, a designer who is becoming known as the “Hermes of Mexico.” Since accessories always make the outfit, the king or queen of the affair can participate in the resort’s Rent Your Rock progam which allows guests to borrow diamonds and other high-end jewelry for the special occasion. Items include jewelry such as a yellow canary diamond, radiant cut, with a center stone of nearly four carats and surrounded by 1.25 carats, all in white gold.
Finally, when it’s time to get down to business, the bash will take place on the beach, which can accommodate up to 300 people. The resort will also create a personalized professional sand sculpture for your teen, because, why not? While there, guests will enjoy a candy bar, fireworks show, renowned DJ and, a private performance by a top artist such as Maroon 5 or Pitbull. (As an aside, if you book Adam Levine, please invite me as well.)
Throughout the trip, the birthday teen and their 10 friends will be able to experience skydiving or flyboarding. From the décor to the exquisite cuisine by celebrity chef Mikel Alonso, everything will be taken care of. A special welcome dinner will be prepared by the chef including mocktails by master mixologist Moisés Sierra Sáenz.
"We’ve had $2 million bar mitzvahs recently, so we have a solid track record with these uber luxe parties. We’re convinced there’s a larger market for this not just for bar and bat mitzvahs, but for all teen milestone events," Juan Vela, VP of Grand Velas Resorts told JustLuxe. "So we thought why not package the features and let [...] guests know that we have the creativity this kind of party demands, can outreach to suppliers at the highest levels, and make all this happen for a party to top all. And if, as we suspect, the client wants something even more elaborate and sumptuous at an even larger budget, we’ll make that happen too."
This kind of shindig will make your teen feel like the luckiest person alive and we’re pretty sure they’ll soon be the most popular kid in school (which is all that matters, right?).
