As meetings and events start revving up again, many properties have come up with unique solutions to encourage groups to gather. Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort & Spa, located on the Santa Ana Pueblo between Albuquerque and Santa Fe, is no exception and has been offering COVID safe bubble and resort buyout meeting experiences for 2021 events.
“Although many people and companies are beginning to meet again, we are continuing to see interest in buyouts bubble opportunities for meetings,” says Chrisie Smith, Director of Sales, Marketing, and Events at Hyatt Regency Tamaya. “Our off-the-beaten-path location provides an ideal destination where planners can have the keys to the castle, and create a truly customized and unforgettable experience for attendees to reconnect safely during this time.”
Why It Works
Located on 550 acres, the resort is separated from outside traffic by a 2-mile access road that can be closed for privacy purposes.
The resort has 350 guest rooms and 25,000 square feet of outdoor and 29,000 square feet of indoor meeting space for spreading out. Highlights include Cottonwood Pavilion with floor-to-ceiling windows that can be opened to bring the outdoors in; The House of the Hummingbird, a 7,500 square-foot lawn surrounded by a replica of indigenous ruins of the Native American Pueblo; Sunrise Amphitheater, a natural outdoor amphitheater; and the Tamaya Ballroom, a 12,000-square-foot ballroom that can be divided into eight separate rooms.
There is no need to leave the property for free time as there are on-site options such as trail rides on horseback from The Stables at Tamaya, cultural experiences led by members of the Santa Ana Pueblo, spa experiences at Tamaya Mist Spa & Salon, championship golf at Twin Warriors Golf Club, and guided yoga and meditation classes. Planners also can arrange corporate social responsibility (CSR) and volunteer work through the resort’s Tamaya Horse Rehabilitation Program, a 501(c)3 organization that provides shelter and care to unwanted horses throughout the state.
