Jorge Subero Medina, executive president of Cap Cana, indicated that the Dominican Republic continues to gain ground with the incursion of exclusive hotel brands that choose to develop their properties in the country, and in particular in the destination of Cap Cana.
In this sense, he reconfirmed the development of a St. Regis Hotels & Resorts of the Marriott International Hotels chain in the area of the Punta Espada golf course.
“It is a very exclusive project since it is the first time that the brand will be in the country and there (St. Regis Hotels & Resorts) will be around 350 rooms that will be added to the country’s lodging portfolio that will once again put Cap Cana in another position,” he added.
The complex would be the brand’s first in the Dominican Republic. The hotel company also has two more in Central America; one in Mexico and the other in Puerto Rico.
The brand is characterized by blending classic sophistication with a modern sensibility, committing to delivering exceptional experiences at more than 40 luxury hotels and resorts in the best destinations around the world.
Due to the development of the hotel and the recent inauguration of the Margaritaville by Karisma, Subero Medina explained that the three qualities for which the Dominican Republic remains the preferred tourist destination to invest in hotel developments are: the vaccination program to control the Covid pandemic -19, maturity as a country and hotel infrastructures.
“RD has spectacular hotel infrastructures which are being used and have been part of the hard work that we Dominicans have been doing for many years,” he added.
Meanwhile, and without neglecting the good deeds with which the country’s tourism continues to recover, the director said that there are still some other needs such as a second line of beach and diversifying the complimentary offer.
«There is always one or another need and putting a second beach line into production is one of them because the first line has matured and we need another one because we have to expand. In addition, we have the challenge of adding complementary elements that serve as a plus to the lodging offer,” he said.
