Dominican President cuts ribbon of new luxury Dominican Republic resort development in Juan Dolio

The latest development to give a boost to Dominican Republic holidays in the small municipality of Juan Dolio has been formally inaugurated by Dominican President Leonel Fernandez as he headed the ribbon cutting for the project Marbella by Metro Country Club Juan Dolio, of the Group Metro, which came at a cost of more than US$100 million.

This lavish new development intended to revolutionalise the concept of luxury holidays in the Dominican resort of Juan Dolio, includes both residential and hotel units. The chosen location is right in front of the pristine Juan Dolio beach to offer travellers with fabulous beach Dominican Republic holidays with added exclusivity.

For the special event, the investing company Group Metro recently hosted an exclusive event on the beachfront facing the stunning new residential property. Among the attendees were some of the country's most elite figures including the President Leonel Fernandez and Minister of Tourism Francisco Javier Garcia.

"After three years in development, we are very pleased to announce the grand opening of Marbella," exclaimed Dr. Luis Jose Asilis, chief executive of Group Metro. "It is always such a great feeling of accomplishment when a vision becomes a reality. Today, we are overjoyed to finally welcome all the new residents and guest to Marbella who will enjoy it for years to come."

The chief executive added that the work is important for Juan Dolio and the future of Dominican Republic holidays in this region as he also announced that as part of the project, additional work would be carried out to repair the municipality’s streets and thus further contribute to the zone’s advance in tourism. Dr. Jose Asilis also pledged to convert the resort town into one of the country’s most attractive areas attracting a large volume of tourists to take Dominican Republic holidays here within a short time.

Metro president Luis Jose Asilis said that with the project’s 301 apartments and 800 hotel rooms a total of 1,200 rooms would be added to the total of Dominican Republic hotels, while the new apartments come at a cost between US$300,000 to US$1 million.

Located at Villas del Mar in Juan Dolio, the new Marbella project will be a beachfront condominium enjoying magnificent ocean views. Only 20 minutes from the International Airport of the Americas and 40 minutes from the country’s capital of Santo Domingo, this quiet area of Juan Dolio is a well-kept secret as a sanctuary from the bustling city life of Santo Domingo, offering travellers with a haven for serene Dominican Republic holidays by the beach but not too far away from the city.

Group Metro has established a formidable international reputation throughout its four decades of experience in transportation, tourism and real estate. Led by its visionary chief executive, Dr. Luis Jose Asilis, the company has played an integral role in putting Dominican Republic holidays on the map as a top Caribbean holiday destination.
