Secrets Cap Cana Holds Grand Opening

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - May 4, 2017

The new  Secrets Cap Cana is now officially open.

Transitioning from a soft opening phase, the AMResorts property celebrated its grand opening Thursday evening coinciding with the Dominican Republic’s largest tourism conference, DATE: The Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange in Punta Cana.

The Dominican Republic’s major new adults only all inclusive property held a gala celebration event opening last night that was one of the more impressive resort opening ceremonies in recent memory, including a performance by the Youth Philharmonic of the Dominican Republic.

This is the 15th property in the Secrets Resorts and Spas portfolio and, officials told Caribbean Journal, the flagship property for the company, bringing AMResorts’ total number of Caribbean and Mexico resort properties to an impressive 52.

Alex Zozaya, CEO of Apple Leisure Group, was on hand to welcome industry elite, government and airline officials as well as the media and the press.

“Apple Leisure Group sees continued demand for more and new product offerings for travelers around the globe,” he told attendees.

Looking ahead, by 2020, AMResorts expects to have over 100 resorts throughout Mexico, the Caribbean and Central America.

Currently, AMResorts’ portfolio spans 30 destinations in eleven countries.

Secrets Cap Cana is a luxury 457-room adults-only resort set in the exclusive enclave of Cap Cana located in the greater Punta Cana region.

Amenities include Secrets’ trademarked “unlimited luxury” service including limitless a la carte restaurants with no reservations, 24-hour room service and private dining options.

One simple feature we love in particular is the lack of wristbands — an idea we hope catches on in all upscale all-inclusive properties.
The resort is located on the spectacular Juanillo Beach and has a mix of accommodations, including bungalow-style and swim-out suites, along with a large infinity pool, 10 restaurants and a Secrets Spa by Pevonia.

Secrets Cap Cana guests can access a host of nearby amenities, including a Jack Nicklaus-designed championship golf course, a marina, stables, an equestrian enter with polo fields, watersports and a world-class sport fishing destination.

It’s a major addition to the Caribbean hotel market.
