Apple Leisure Group’s AMResorts is adding another all-inclusive to its Dominican Republic portfolio.

The company has announced a new resort brand management deal that will bring the new Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana to the shores of Macao in the Dominican Republic.

Set to debut in the second quarter of 2020, Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana, which is owned by Grupo Santa Maria SA, will be the eleventh AMResorts branded property in the country.

Macao Beach will become the fifth destination in the Dominican Republic in the AMResorts collection.

“Our partnership with Grupo Santa Maria will help to further expand AMResorts’ presence in the Dominican Republic with the addition of the highly marketable destination of El Macao to our branded resort portfolio,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of ALG. “Demand for all-inclusive resorts remains strong in the Caribbean, and we are able to offer owners an incomparable advantage through our powerful distribution networks and brand management services.”

The beachfront resort is the only hotel property located on the Macao Beach, located near Punta Cana and next to the regions of Bavaro and Uvero Alto. 

Once completed, Dreams Macao Beach Punta Cana will be feature 500 rooms and suites, all with ocean views. 

Guests looking for a more private experience can choose a unit within the exclusive family villa area, which will feature private swimming pools, play areas and more.

The hotel will include six specialty restaurants, including a buffet, a French restaurant featuring a curated wine cellar, and a “Coco Café” with an ice cream parlor. 

That’s along with seven distinct bar experiences, including a swim-up bar and a sports bar concept.

On-site amenities will include three pools, two of which are Infinity pools overlooking Macao Beach and the hills of Punta Cana; an on-site waterpark, Core Zone Teen’s Club, Explorer’s Club for Kids, gaming lounge, a batting cage and more.

It’s yet another new property for what is the fastest-growing resort company in the Caribbean right now.
