Meliá to convert Caribbean property into two resorts
Meliá Hotels International has announced the transformation of its Dominican Republic resort, Meliá Caribe Tropical, into two separate properties – Meliá Punta Cana Beach, an adults-only resort, and Meliá Caribe Beach, a resort for everyone.
Debuting with a selection of new offerings, the two new hotels are due to open in December 2018 with a myriad of new programming, services and amenities.
Alvaro Tejeda, Meliá’s regional VP, The Americas, said: “By offering two distinct properties with specialised services, we are more able to cater to guests’ needs and enhance their travel experience.
“Our guests have been requesting more adults-only options, as well as family-friendly amenities, so we are thrilled to be able to fulfill that need and offer a more tailored stay.”
Meliá Punta Cana Beach Resort
An adults-only property, the hotel will offer the THE LEVEL, Meliá Hotels & Resorts’ signature elevated service concept, providing guests with exclusive and preferential facilities and amenities such as an exclusive VIP lounge for check-in/out, exclusive pool, restaurant, free Internet access, premium beverages, hors d’oeuvres and coffee and tea service throughout the day. THE LEVEL Concierge can also arrange for priority reservations for à la carte restaurants, treatments at the spa, golf reservations and more.
Consisting of 538 rooms, inclusive of standard junior suites and 136 THE LEVEL suites, Meliá Punta Cana Beach Resort will offer guests a spacious pool, beach and five new restaurant concepts – Mosaico, Muoi, Casa Nostra, Rumba, and Replay.
