A New Resort Just Opened Its Doors in Punta Cana

By: Alexander Britell - November 15, 2020

Since the beginning of June, when the first Caribbean destinations began to reopen their borders for tourism, there’s been a continued wave of hotel re-openings.

So it was major news in Punta Cana this weekend when a full-fledged new resort actually opened its doors — for the first time.

Indeed, the first new resort to open in Punta Cana since the beginning of the pandemic just began welcoming guests: The Radisson Blu Resort and Residence Punta Cana. 

The property, the only Radisson Blu in the Caribbean, officially launched operations on Nov. 15. 

It’s one of just a handful of new resorts that have opened since the beginning of the pandemic, and the first in the Dominican Republic.  

The 164-suite resort, which is set on Cabeza de Toro beach in greater Punta Cana, is one of the only all-inclusive Radisson Blu resorts in the world.

“The opening of Radisson Blu in Punta Cana marks an important milestone in our corporate history and is a testament to our confidence in the reactivation of tourism in the Dominican Republic,” said Francisco Jorge, Vice President of ACH Hoteles & Resorts, which owns the resort. “We are proud to expand Radisson’s footprint in the Caribbean, offering our guests the quality of service that has made the brand a staple in the tourism industry, combined with the idyllic natural charm of one of the best Dominican beaches.”

The new-build property’s 164 suites are set across 12 buildings on the beach, with amenities including six a la carte restaurants, five bars and lounges and a large lagoon-style pool, among others.

It’s the second Radisson in the Dominican Republic, joining a Radisson-branded hotel in the country’s capital of Santo Domingo.

Our guests can travel with the peace of mind that we have them completely covered, from safety protocols, to all-inclusive offering, to personalized attention, Radisson Blu Punta Cana will redefine the upscale beach vacation”
