Grupo Sunset World’s First Week Dedicated to Members a Huge Success



Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo – Grupo Sunset World held its first Member Fest, a week dedicated to its members and guests, with great success. September 22 to 28, the members staying at Hacienda Tres Ríos enjoyed sporting events, gastronomic experiences, tastings and activities designed exclusively for them.


Each day members and guests participated in mini golf, soccer and beach volleyball tournaments with the Memory Makers team. Special activities for children included a treasure hunt, parties and creative workshops with the Kids Club staff.


In the afternoon activities were held for adults including Mexican cocktail tastings paired with appropriate snacks. During these activities called Agave’s Gifts, members had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with tequila, mezcal and pulque and learn about their origin, differences and the ideal way to enjoy them with the perfect Mexican dishes.


Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the “Sauces and Secrets of Mexico” contest between the 6 Sunset World executive chefs. Each chef used his or her experience, knowledge and inspiration to create an innovative and distinctive dish. Traditional Mexican sauces were the focus. The judges were Grupo Sunset World members, who evaluated different criteria to choose a winner.


An exclusive Gala Dinner was held to close Member Fest, on the night of September 27, during which Chef Marcos de la Cruz Jiménez of Ocean Spa Hotel won the “Sauces and Secrets of Mexico” contest with his Campeche-style Breaded Shrimp. 40 people including members, sponsors and press were present. The delicious dinner was an example of the gastronomic excellence that Grupo Sunset World offers its members and guests. Chef Marcos de la Cruz was awarded a set of prestigious Victorinox brand professional cutlery.


“We had a lot of fun and we won prizes. We are very grateful to Sunset World for pampering us,” said Lourdes Pereyra, a member since 2012, “We vacation at Hacienda Tres Ríos every year and although we have never lacked activities, this vacation was much more exciting thanks to Member Fest,” she concluded.
