Major Dominican Republic All-Inclusive Resort Reopens

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - September 29, 2020

One of the Dominican Republic’s most iconic all-inclusive resorts has officially reopened, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach resort reopened this week in La Romana on the southeastern coast of the Dominican Republic. 

The property first opened its doors in 1987 as Viva Wyndham’s first-ever Caribbean property. 

The hotel has reopened with a new set of protocols covering health and safety amid the pandemic.

The resort has also completed a series of renovations, from a new decor for all standard and superior guest rooms; the addition of a new saltwater oceanfront infinity pool and two pools with dedicated children’s areas. 

“Viva Wyndham Resorts used the closure as an opportunity to build upon our priority of safety, health and cleanliness to champion the latest local and global health guidelines by implementing new practices, services and adapted amenities across all our all-inclusive resorts in the Caribbean,” said Ettore Colussi, the founder and president of Viva Wyndham Resorts. “Reopening our doors at our first-ever property, Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach, symbolizes a new beginning, as we reveal a fresh, new experience that is ready to allow guests to escape and recharge in a pristine oasis.”

The resort has also added a new tiki bar, a new Latin fusion eatery; a new look at the La Pizzeria restaurant and newly-landscaped walkways around the property. 

“The view from the infinity pool is spectacular and complements the plentiful open-air, tropical spaces within the resort while offering guests full restaurant and bar service to completely relax and enjoy their vacation experience,” Colussi said. 

The Dominican Republic reopened its borders for international tourism earlier this summer.
