Recently, some of the Beach Bums returned from the 5th Annual GIVC Awards by Karisma Resorts. It was a 3 day event, full of training and after taking in all of the new and exciting updates Karisma is now offering our clients we got to let loose in true Bum style and have a little fun! At the Halloween gala, we let our dark sides come out.
While staying at El Dorado Royale and El Dorado Casitas Royale, we were able to see some of the beautiful new updates and amenities the resort has recently added. These weren’t the only two resorts making changes either! That’s one of the reasons why we love Karisma as one of our Preferred Partners – they are always seeking to make things better for our guests 🙂
The most exciting part about this week was the Awards Gala, where many of the Beach Bums were awarded as Gourmet Inclusive Vacation Consultants and Wedding Consultants. It was such an honor to hear “Beach Bum Vacation” being called to the stage repeatedly to receive each award. Some of the awards included ‘Top 10 Wedding Producers Overall” awarded to Beach Bum Melissa and higher diamond levels awarded to a few select Beach Bums for their continued excellence in service and dedication to providing clients with a Gourmet Inclusive vacation experience. The greatest reward is that our hard work allows us to continually better our relationships with each individual resort, the entire resort line, and in turn provides us with some really great benefits for Beach Bum Vacation clients. That’s what makes all of this worth it! I’m excited to be a part of such a team and can’t wait to see what the next year holds for Beach Bum Vacation!
Picture this…you’re walking along the beach with the cool ocean breeze at your back, your toes are hitting the sand with each step you take and the water is splashing on your legs, you’ve got an ice cold beverage in hand and the love of your life is right beside you. You can feel the sun kissing your skin and life is good. Now this is a Beach Bum Vacation!
