Celebraing 12 years with a new dimension in all-inclusive luxury. Soul Siesta, An Exotic Blend of Urban Soul and Latin Flava'. For The Sophisticated Urban Trendsetter!. Soul Siesta kicked-off 11 years ago in Republica Dominicana and has grown to become one of the premier getaways for the mature-minded, sophisticated traveler. Started in 2000, the Soul Siesta event derived from the need to offer a different product to the urban market based in the United States. Memorial Day Weekend was saturated with events and a change was needed. We responded by creating a 5-day/4-night all-inclusive getaway that's more than an event, it's the experience of a lifetime. After ten successful years in Republica Dominicana, and our inaugural year in Riviera Maya, Mexico, we’re extremely excited about our return to 5 star luxury.

You lead and you delegate. You create and you instruct. You affirm yourself as you build up others. You love beyond measure. Your inner strength and beauty radiate in times of crisis. Despite seemingly insurmountable odds, you find your lane in humanity's race and run it with endurance, faith, and determination. Your wisdom has been lauded by poets, pollsters, and pulpiteers, alike. There is none like you. Man will walk on the moon; you will make it a home. Woman, you are phenomenal. That's why we want to celebrate you in an extraordinary and exclusively unique experience: "The NPN 2012 Women's Empowerment Summit & Spa at Sea." It's your time to be celebrated by the men and women of the world who love you.
