Melia’s newest luxury brand is making its debut in the Dominican Republic — and it will be its most exclusive property yet.

Circle by Melia, a new “brand experience” the company says is a “whole new level” of accommodations, will open its first property at the Paradisus Palma Real resort in Punta Cana this year.

But it won’t be open to all travelers — The Circle will be a members-only resort, according to the company.

Circle is part of a special membership program Melia has launched, with three categories: Infinite Blue, Infinite Red and Infinite Black Experience, opening up members to “a whole new world of flexibility and thousands of destinations.”

Circle aims to offer a kind of bespoke, customized resort experience, with everything from custom pre-stocked minibars to an “infinite butler.”
