Gansevoort Hotels to open Dominican Republic resort in December

Gansevoort Hotel Group has announced a new addition to its collection of Caribbean properties with the launch of the Gansevoort Playa Imbert on 15th December, 2014.

Gansevoort Playa Imbert is a luxury resort located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, just 15 minutes from Puerto Plata Airport.

The luxury beachfront resort will have 48 suites made up of one and two-bedroom lofts; several three-bedroom apartments with private plunge pools and spacious terraces; and four-bedroom penthouses with private rooftop Jacuzzis and floor-to-ceiling windows boasting views of the sparkling ocean.

"Gansevoort prides itself on bringing a whole new level of service and amenities to emerging destinations," commented Michael Achenbaum, the founder and president of Gansevoort.

"From Playa Imbert to Cabarete, we love the vibe and beauty of the north coast and believe there's a unique opportunity to create something truly special for the luxury market here."

Facilities at Gansevoort Playa Imbert include a three-tiered infinity pool that looks out over the crescent-shaped beach; gourmet restaurants including Baia Lounge with Mediterranean and Asian-inspired cuisine; and the underground La Cantina Wine + Cigar Cellar that has a large collection of wines from all over the globe and a fully-stocked humidor.

The hotel will have a new adults-only swimming pool in spring 2015, as well as a fitness centre, and a lavish day spa with a Hammam-style sauna, and a meditation and yoga garden.

The Gansevoort Hotel Group first made its debut in the Caribbean, with the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos and the company is planning to open another resort in the Dominican Republic next year with the launch of the Aman Playa Grande.

The Dominican Republic is a nation on the tropical island of Hispaniola located in the Caribbean Sea. The country occupies the eastern two thirds of the island and the remaining third belongs to Haiti.

The nation is a popular Caribbean holiday destination thanks to its beautiful natural scenery comprising white sand beaches fringed with swaying palm trees; cobalt ocean waters; undulating green hills and winding valleys; rivers, lakes and cascading waterfalls; and majestic mountain ranges.
