Los Cabos, Mexico (PRWEB) January 7, 2010
Love your smart-phone? But hate it, too? Stressed-out guests are invited to leave theirs behind upon arrival at the Marquis Los Cabos Resort with a symbolic “Blackberry Burial Ceremony.” A refreshing welcome drink and cool towel upon arrival ensure 2009 is left behind before guests are invited to join the beach-front Blackberry Burial Ceremony at the 237-suite Leading Hotel of the World. Guests not only dig their toes in the sand, they can do the same with their smart-phones in a simulated ritual that includes a 10-minute hand therapy session for texting-weary fingers.
Featured in National Geographic Traveler’s “Hotels with a Heart,” the Marquis Los Cabos donates five percent of the hotel’s annual revenue for the staff’s education and healthcare in its Marquis University. Since 2003, the resort has helped on average 20 employees a year obtain primary schooling and bachelor degrees.
