Where to go post-Oscars for a rejuvenating escape? Make like Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in The Shawshank Redemption and head to the paradise of Zihuatanejo – where you’ll be treated like a star with the ‘Academy Awards Getaway’ at Viceroy Zihuatanejo.
In the film, which received seven Academy Award nominations in 1994, Andy Dufresne (Tim Robbins) realizes his dream of escaping prison to the promised land of Zihuatanejo, where is he joined by paroled buddy Red (Morgan Freeman). In the years since, many other celebrities have discovered the destination and its most popular resort, the chic Viceroy Zihuatanejo.
To celebrate the Academy Awards and great films such as The Shawshank Redemption, Viceroy Zihuatanejo created a package for guests on a post-Oscars getaway as well as a special cocktail. The all-inclusive Academy Awards Getaway, starting at $642 per night for two, includes luxury suite accommodations; a la carte breakfast, lunch, dinner at any resort restaurant; premium cocktails, beer, wine by the glass, and non-alcoholic beverages. Tax and service are additional; available through Dec. 21, 2015.
The Oscar-Tini combines three favorite Mexican ingredients – white mezcal, agave nectar and concentrated hibiscus tea – blended with ice, served in a chilled martini glass and accented with an orange half moon.
Sit back in a lounger on the sand sipping an Oscar-Tini, savor acclaimed cuisine in open-air restaurants by the water, relax in a spacious and beautifully appointed suite, enjoy walks on gorgeous La Ropa Beach, and experience all of the promise of a luxury resort at a dream destination. Guests now can also celebrate this year’s award winners with a Cuban cigar from the resort’s new humidor – and take some home too as it now legal to bring them back to the U.S.
