New Year, Who dis?

New Year, Who dis?
Raphy Kernisant

We all know the popular phrase “new phone, who dis?” and have probably used it one too many times to get out of an uncomfortable text message we didn’t want to respond to. With the year quickly coming to an end, I think it’s time we change our ways. So for all my loyal social media users that are having trouble letting go of the old and aren’t sure how to bring in the new year…this one is for you. It’s time to turn over a new leaf and act brand new, hence #NewYearWhoDis.

I’ve rounded up a few of DPR’s clients perfect for learning a new skill, finding a new hobby or getting into shape for 2018.

Try a new sport:

Let’s be honest, most of us are probably guilty of getting stuck in a routine. We wake up, we go to work, hang out at our typical bar and we never stop to realize…”wow when was the last time I tried something different”. This new year is going to be a year full of growth, so why not head to Barnsley Resort and spend each day trying something new, from horseback riding, to fly fishing and quail or clay shooting – I guarantee you there is something you’ve never tried before.



Release your inhibition:

If you really want to make a change this new year and let everything go…there is no better place than Hedonism II in Negril, Jamaica. Start off on the prude side on day one and slowly let go of everything holding you back – there’s nothing to hide (seriously) at Hedo, a clothing optional resort.


Learn to cook: 

This new year, adopt a skill that you can apply every day – cooking up a storm in the kitchen. Marriott Puerto Vallarta Resort & Spa, located on the Gulf Coast of Mexico, offers customizable cooking classes. Want to keep it simple and find your staple item for 2018?… opt for the guacamole demo because ain’t no party like a guacamole party.



Get into Yoga:

Kiss the hectic year goodbye and head to Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino where you can relax your mind and calm your nerves out in the ocean while attempting paddleboard yoga. Master yogi, Rachel Brathen, combines the tranquil nature of yoga with the power and coordination needed to balance on a stand-up paddleboard while floating on the water.
