Club Med Reopens Dominican Republic All-Inclusive Resort

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - June 26, 2021

One of the major all-inclusive hotels in the Dominican Republic has officially reopened, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The Club Med Miches Playa Esmeralda, the all-inclusive company’s newest Caribbean resort, began welcoming back guests this week. 

“Club Med Miches Playa Esmeralda is officially open,” Club Med said in a statement. 

The property had just opened at the end of 2019 to much acclaim before shuttering just a few months later at the onset of the pandemic. 

The 93-acre resort is the first major hotel to open in the increasingly popular area of Miches in the eastern Dominican Republic. 

It’s one of two Club Med properties in the country, along with the already-opened Club Med Punta Cana. 

The 111-room property is set across four “villages,” each with a different theme and personality. 

A suite at the Archipelago village.

That includes the family-friendly Explorer Cove; the adults-only Archipelago, with private suites boasting their own private plunge pools; Caribbean Paradise, a more energetic area of the resort close to the main pool, dining outlets and the beach lounge; and Emerald dJungle, a “relaxing retreat” with direct access to the adults-only Zen Oasis area of the property. 

And while the property has a strong adults-only component, there’s an equally robust offering for younger guests, from highly-customized kids clubs to a “Secret Chocolate Room,” billed as a first-of-its-kind “kids’ speakeasy” with locally-sourced chocolate. 

The Dominican Republic has major plans for Miches as a destination, with $1 billion in investment targeted for the area, including projects from brands like Apple Leisure Group and Four Seasons, among others.
