Club Med is planning a significant new all-inclusive resort project in the Dominican Republic.

The Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda will be the first outpost of the company’s Exclusive Collection in the Americas, in the heart of the northeastern coast of the island.

The 93-acre project is Club Med’s biggest project in the Caribbean in four decades, part of a special premium category for the company.

Indeed, the resort will be the new flagship of the Exclusive Collection, Club Med said in a statement.

Now, Club Med has offered the first look at the new all-inclusive resort, which will be built across four boutique “villages,” each with a unique identity.

The villages will include the Caribbean Paradise, a garden-filled wing; Emerald Jungle, which will focus on wellness (and include Club Med’s Zen Oasis adults-only concept); Explorer Cove, which will focus on family-friendly activities; and the Archipelago village, which will be an adults-only area with suites featuring private pools and outdoor showers, right on the beach.

The company said the property would be designed around an “eco-chic” atmosphere, devoting its “design, activities and elements to the surrounding region.”

“For almost 10 years, our team searched to find the perfect new land in the Caribbean to introduce to our guests. Miches was a natural fit – we found many locals, and even our own employees in Punta Cana, would spend their free days visiting this unspoiled location,” said Xavier Mufraggi, CEO of Club Med North America and the Caribbean. “We decided to explore this area for ourselves to see what made it so special. Little did we know how remarkable it would be: from its unparalleled beaches and breathtaking sights of whales swimming off the coast of Samaná Bay to the famous peak and swing of Montaña Redonda and the cascading waters of El Limón – Miches had it all.”
