Palladium Hotels & Resorts is excited to announce our new partnership with the Emmy Award winning, live action series Raggs!

Palladium Hotel Group is proud to announce a new licensing partnership for our Grand Palladium all-inclusive luxury resorts in the Caribbean and Mexico. Called Play at Palladium with Raggs, the program launches in July and will immerse the five colorful Raggs characters into our already expansive kids programs. Play at Palladium with Raggs includes exciting additions to our program featuring character meet-and-greets; dining and musical experiences; activities and fully-produced live musical stage shows at the resorts’ on-site theatres (stage shows starting in November).

Raggs, an Emmy award-winning live action TV series starring five musical pups, which currently airs in English on public TV and in Spanish on Telemundo in the U.S., is expanding into Europe and Latin America. The Raggs characters are also known for their rockin’ musical live shows, which will be a key component of the Grand Palladium Resort experience.

LIGHTS, CAMERA, FUN!: PALLADIUM HOTELS & RESORTS BRINGS EMMY AWARD WINNING CHILDREN’S SERIES, RAGGS, TO ITS RESORTS IN MEXICO, JAMAICA
AND DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

Play at Palladium with Raggs Debuts July 20 at Palladium Hotels & Resorts

NEW YORK (May 20, 2013) – Expanding its commitment to providing the finest (and most fun!) in family services and facilities to its guests, Palladium Hotels & Resorts, will now feature Play at Palladium with Raggs at its resorts in Riviera Maya and Riviera Nayarit in Mexico, Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic and Montego Bay, Jamaica. Raggs is an Emmy award-winning live action TV series starring five musical pups, which currently airs in English on Public TV and in Spanish on Telemundo in the U.S. The characters will appear exclusively at Palladium Hotels & Resorts starting July 20; and fully-produced live musical stage shows at the resorts’ on-site theatres will commence in November.
The Raggs characters – Raggs, B. Max, Tribly, Pido and Razzle will all instantly become your child’s best friend while at Palladium! Whether the group is singing by the pool, dancing in the lobbies, posing for photos at the beach or reading stories at the Mini-Club, children will flock to these furry friends throughout the Resort. Parents can also arrange for special private playtimes such as breakfast with Raggs or a birthday party.*
The Raggs characters also sing together as The Raggs Band. The rockin’ musical group’s new live stage show will debut in November in the Palladium’s large on-site theaters and feature 10 of the band’s hit songs. While the songs will be sung primarily in English, added commentary will be in various languages such as Spanish, French, German, Russian and others representing the Palladium’s worldwide clientele.  
“Based on wonderful experiences traveling with my children, it was clear that an all-inclusive resort is ideal for a family vacation and we wanted our resorts to be the perfect place for families with children of all ages. We are very excited to bring Raggs to our littlest guests at our resorts, to make memories for the whole family that will last a lifetime,” said Abel Matutes Prats, CEO of Palladium Hotel Group. “We are sure that once children have enjoyed a vacation with Raggs and his friends in Mexico, Jamaica or the Dominican Republic, they will want to come back to play with him again and again.”
Palladium Hotels & Resorts currently provides Kids’ Clubs tiered for different age groups at its resorts, with special sections and activities for kids ranging from 1-19. Its Kids’ Club in Punta Cana, “Castillo del Pirata” is the largest in the Caribbean and Mexico. Grand Palladium Bávaro Resort & Spa in Punta Cana also offers special Family Friendly Rooms.* Guests simply send their children’s needs (formula type, diaper size, food allergies, etc.) prior to traveling and upon arrival, the room will be outfitted with age-appropriate welcome packs created especially for kids ages 1-19.  From formula to video games, all amenities have been included to make certain any child (and, parent!) will feel right at home.
As part of the pre-launch anticipation, Raggs is releasing a new music video called “Fun Day in the Sun Day” which is available at Palladium.com, Raggs.com and the Raggs Band channel on YouTube. Raggs has also launched a new mobile-friendly website at Raggs.com that includes streaming of a new episode daily in both English and Spanish.
For more information on how children can meet Raggs and his friends at Palladium Hotels & Resorts, please visit: www.palladiumresorts.com.
