“Velas Resorts [are] luxury all-inclusive properties that go beyond all inclusive,” Lynne White, regional sales manager Western Canada, Velas Resorts told PAX. “They are for those clients who really want to take it to another level and who really want to experience the luxury and walk away feeling everything they have imagined has been delivered to them.”
