Surging travel company Apple Leisure Group is adding yet another new resort in the Dominican Republic, the Caribbean’s hotbed of hotel development.
Apple Leisure Group’s AMResorts subsidiary will be opening its new Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana in the first quarter of 2020, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The new all-inclusive Punta Cana resort will open Feb. 21, 2020.
The family-friendly resort will feature 500 suites, along with a villa component.
That’s along with nine dining options, of which six will be a la carte eateries.
The property will also feature a Dreams Spa by Pevonia, with four double-treatment cabins, eight single-treatment cabins, a bridal suite, a spa boutique and a hydrotherapy circuit, among other features.
The new beach resort will include Dreams’ signature all-inclusive amenities, from no required reservations to 24-hour room (and concierge service) and pool and beach wait service.
AMResorts has been expanding at a rapid pace in the wider Caribbean Basin, with 2,500 rooms set to have been delivered by the end of this year.
The Dreams brand has two other all-inclusive resorts in development in the wider region: the 286-room Dreams Curacao Resort, Spa and Casino and the Dreams Acapulco Resort and Spa in Mexico, which will include 605 rooms.
It’s one of two openings for AMResorts scheduled for the first quarter of 2020, along with the highly-anticipated Secrets St Martin.
And it’s yet another new resort set to come online in the Dominican Republic, which has focused its efforts on hotel development more than almost any other Caribbean destination in recent years — efforts that continue to pay off in major ways.
“The Dominican Republic is committed to working with the private sector and its government wants to continue growing its hospitality sector, as the tourism industry is currently the strongest job creator,” Javier Coll, executive vice president and chief strategy officer of Apple Leisure Group told Caribbean Journal in a recent interview.
