The Caribbean’s fastest-growing hotel company has added another new property.
AMResorts, a subsidiary of Apple Leisure Group, has held the official opening of the new Sunscape Puerto Plata Dominican Republic.
The all-inclusive, family-friendly resort has a total of 585 rooms and the brand’s signature “Unlimited Fun” vacation concept.
The hotel also offers the “Sun Club,” an exclusive section offering extra snacks, desserts and beverages in a private lounge for guests who choose to upgrade.
“This new property reinforces our commitment to the Dominican Republic as one of the best travel destinations in the Caribbean. Expanding the Sunscape Resorts & Spas brand into this destination offers a budget-friendly option that maximizes value to our guests,” remarked Alex Zozaya, CEO of Apple Leisure Group. “The Dominican Republic’s geographical positioning makes it easily accessible to Americans, allowing families the opportunity to vacation in a great beachside location.”
The Sunscape Puerto Plata property is surrounded by an 18-hole golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones and is set on the country’s Atlantic coastline.
It also features a Sunscape Spa by Pevonia.
“The Dominican Republic has consistently been at the top of the list for tourists seeking a relaxing vacation,” commented Gonzalo del Peón, President of AMResorts. “Puerto Plata is the ideal place for Sunscape Resorts & Spas. Its richness, history and culture provide families the chance to explore, relax and enjoy an unforgettable vacation.”
Officials said the hotel will generate direct employment for more than 842 in the area.
“Sunscape Puerto Plata is leaving its mark on a very popular destination within the brand’s growing portfolio and reinforces our presence in the Dominican Republic,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of Apple Leisure Group.
AMResorts has been on a major expansion push, using its expertise in transforming properties into high-performing all-inclusive resorts.
In 2015, AMResorts signed 17 new management contracts and added seven new destinations to its portfolio.
