Passport to Paradise ─ Punta Cana
In April 2017, twenty VIP guests and their partners joined us in Punta Cana in Dominican Republic for some fun in the sun. Our base was the Royalton Punta Cana Resort & Casino, a sprawling all-inclusive resort situated on the famous white sands of the Caribbean coast.
One of the highlights of the trip was a catamaran excursion. This fantastic day started in the hotel foyer, where our VIP guests were each given a 'travel bag' with sunscreen, towels, a "Panama" style hat and a few other necessities.
Once on board, the catamaran headed for a nearby reef where our guests got to enjoy some of the best snorkelling in the world. We then set sail for a secluded beach, where the crew turned up the music, showed off their dance moves and then introduced us to the unofficial drink of the Dominican Republic, a local spiced rum called Mama Juana.
Another event that everyone enjoyed thoroughly, including our VIP team, was the Cigar rolling demonstration led by Zeed and his "master roller" Pepe, both of whom were incredibly welcoming characters. After the demonstration, our guests were given the opportunity to purchase cigars and take a puff ─ even the women amongst the group were puffing away with much gusto!
We ended off the event with a sumptuous Caribbean themed beach dinner! The setup on the beach next to the Diamond Club beach bar was spectacular and must surely have been the envy of many other guests who weren’t part of our group. The menu was varied, with plenty of local dishes to sample.
During the evening, we selected the winners of the "Hunt the Host" competition, while the resident DJ made sure that everyone was up and bopping to some local Latino tunes.
All in all, we had an incredible time with our VIP guests and look forward to our next trip!
In March, VIP players and their partners were treated to one of their “coolest” adventures when they spent 5 days with the Fortune Lounge team in the Alps in Kitzbühel, Austria. In a pristine and gorgeous backdrop, the players were treated to skiing, snowboarding and cable car night rides, and were pampered with well-deserved massages and saunas. Accommodation was provided at the Hotel Goldener Greif, where players tried their luck at the Casino Kitzbühel.
Over the course of the trip, the players were also spoiled with sumptuous meals at mountain restaurant, Hahnenkam, at private restaurant Backhäusl, and at the restaurant Wirtshaus Steuerberg, which has often been frequented by famous guests such as Kevin Costner, Michael Schumacher and Franz Beckenbauer. With the rare opportunity to experience sight-seeing in Kitzbühel via horse-drawn carriage and much laughter added to the mix, the trip was undeniably an unforgettable experience for all involved.
In July 2016, VIP players and their partners attended the prestigious Calgary Stampede, a rodeo-based event held in the city of Calgary (Alberta, Canada). It’s the largest outdoor event in the world. The players were hosted from Friday to Sunday at the Westin Calgary Hotel, and were treated to a delicious buffet breakfast in the mornings.
The real excitement kicked off on Friday night in the limo party bus on the way to the event as our guests chatted and got to know each other a bit better. When we reached the event, we were seated in the main grandstand to watch the chuck wagon race finals and the impressive, well-coordinated and choreographed Grand Stand show thereafter, culminating in a truly spectacular fireworks display.
After breakfast at the hotel on Saturday, we left for the Stampede at 11 a.m. and entered the very plush “Ranahans” private hospitality section of the main grandstand. We were treated to a full and impressive 3-course meal, including seafood and carvery buffets, and felt comfortable being sheltered by a heated outdoor eating area, which was arranged exclusively for us and our guests. With free-flowing drinks and exceptional service from own Maitre ‘D and his two assistants, our guests were treated to the best rodeo action in the world, including the finals of the wild bronco riding, wild bull riding, calf roping and wrestling, and barrel racing. They were also lucky enough to enjoy some other interesting and entertaining interludes!
Hard Rock Bali
In August, 2016, the Fortune Lounge team and 22 players spent 4 days of fun in the sun at the iconic Rock & Roll themed Hard Rock Hotel – situated near the world-famous Kuta beach in Bali, Indonesia.
The fun kicked off with a cocktail party beside the pool and the first of the daily cash draw prizes, where everyone was a winner!
Over the course of the trip, guests enjoyed sumptuous cuisine, including a dinner at Jamie Oliver’s restaurant, Jamie’s Kuta Beach. Our hosts ensured that there were various planned activities to keep our guests entertained! These included various poolside activities and a VIP Ultimate Foam beach party.
One of the highlights of the event was a Catamaran Cruise to Lembogan Island, where our guests enjoyed a variety of watersports (including magnificent snorkeling) and delighted in a sumptuous BBQ lunch.
The final evening saw all our guests get together for a final Rock & Roll themed dinner that concluded with an exciting, special draw to select the grand prize winner of the Holden Ute Car Giveaway. In total, we gave away $60,000 in cash and prizes.
September 8 to September 15 saw the world’s largest and newest ship, the Royal Caribbean’s Harmony of the Seas, set sail around the Mediterranean for the first time.
Docking at places such as Rome, Naples, Barcelona, Marjorca and Marseille, our 20 VIPs and their partners were treated to more than just a 5-star cruise. The cruise was jam-packed full of things to do, including exhilarating rides on tallest slide at sea, a bionic bar, surf lessons, putt-putt, and so much more.
Each day saw us docking at new cities that had much sightseeing and activities on offer. We had two formal evenings and one day out at sea. There was always something to do on this once-in-a-lifetime trip.
We wined and dined our players and hosted lucky draws and casino tournaments where there was thousands to be won.
All in all, a spectacularly memorable time was had by all involved!
In October 2016, our VIP guests and their partners stayed in a lavish all-inclusive resort in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic.
We took a bus to the seaside and, once there, boarded a private catamaran. We had 7 crew members providing the entertainment, treating us all to a medley of song and dance. Our guests delighted in a snorkeling adventure, swimming in shallow, clear-blue waters. We relaxed onboard the catamaran for about 3 hours before we were taken back to the beach for a mouthwatering lobster lunch.
On the trip, we had a short lesson on tobacco plants and our guests eagerly learnt about how cigars are made, compliments of the experienced locals. Everyone also had the chance to sample the cigars.
Our guests then enjoyed a casino tournament at the Hard Rock hotel and casino, where we awarded $10k to the first prize winner.
Our VIP guests were sad to leave such a charming place, but vowed to return as soon as possible!
Our VIP guests were hosted at the luxurious Rendezvous Hotel in Melbourne to attend Melbourne Cup Day – ‘the race that stops the nation’ from 31 October to 2 November 2016.
Before the big event, our guests sipped on complimentary champagne in the hotel lounge, after which we were collected by a “pimped out” black stretch hummer limo, where more champagne and wine was provided and enjoyed en-route to the Flemington race course.
Upon arrival, players were met by a red carpet leading to the entrance of the Rose Room, where we reveled in a glamorous first-class setting with unequivocally fantastic service, beautifully set tables and a delicious 5-course menu and beverages.
Most of the players placed their own bets on the races and delighted in the “friendly-betting” that we ran for each race.
After our limo ride back to the hotel, the VIP players and hosts enjoyed some friendly conversation and drinks before we said goodnight. We were treated to a delicious breakfast the next morning, after which we said our farewells.
In early September this year, 29 VIP players and their partners cruised the Caribbean with the Fortune Lounge team aboard the luxury cruise liner, Oasis of the Seas – one of the largest cruise ships in the world! They spent 7 fun-filled nights onboard the magnificent ship, docking at Nassau, St. Maartens and St. Thomas. The action and excitement never stopped as the players were pampered for a full week and were kept busy with exciting onboard attractions such as wave-pools, a zip-line, rock climbing, ice-skating, movies and much more at the Royal Promenade. The climax of the trip was when the entertainment moved into the casino. One player walked away with the grand prize of a whopping €25,000 in the onboard Slots tournament! During the Cruise promotion period, a total of €1,000,000 was won in cash and prize giveaways.
Gold Coast Cruise
In September this year, our lucky Australian VIPs were treated to a 7-day luxury cruise aboard the Sun Princess which whisked them to the sunny city of Gold Coast, Queensland. This city is renowned for its sun-kissed beaches and picturesque ocean views and our VIPs experienced the island life as they wined and dined every evening with the VIP hosts.
During the trip, they stopped at the dazzling island of New Caledonia, known for its palm-lined beaches and rich marine life, as well as the magnificent snorkeling island of Lifou. One of the highlights of the trip was when they visited the world’s only underwater Post Office located at the Vanuatu island.
After experiencing the breathtaking outdoor sceneries, our VIP hosts welcomed their guests to a mouthwatering 3-course dinner, followed by an enjoyable evening at the casino, where good friendships were formed. It was truly a sensational adventure.
Melbourne Cup Day
In November 2015, eleven VIP guests joined Tatjana, Richard and Nicky at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia to attend the prestigious ‘race that stops the nation’ – the Melbourne Cup.
The Melbourne Cup Carnival, ranked as one of the greatest in the Australian calendar, combines fashion, hospitality, entertainment and racing in one week-long festival, the highlight being the Emirates Melbourne Cup Day event. Donned in their best attire, complete with traditional fresh yellow rose pins, guests were treated to a premium hospitality experience at the first-class Rose Room marquee which boasts magnificent views of the Flemington Racecourse. They indulged in a five-course plated lunch, afternoon tea, premium wines and champagne as well as private betting facilities as the races unfolded. It was truly an unforgettable experience!
The lucky guests also stayed overnight at the stunning 4-star Grand Chancellor Hotel at the heart of Melbourne, which is close to popular tourist attractions, vibrant shopping districts and dynamic night life before returning to the various parts of Australia that they had travelled from. Needless to say, they returned home with great memories and stories to share.
