Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel reopens following renovations

The Renaissance Santo Domingo Jaragua Hotel has reopened following a multi-million dollar refurbishment project.

The hotel, which is the most famous in the Dominican Republic, closed its doors in April 2014 to undergo $40 million worth of extensive renovations and upgrades.

Located on the Malecon in Santo Domingo, the luxury hotel has upgraded guest rooms, restaurants, pool area, spa, gym, shops, bar, and a new lobby area.

Jose Castillo, the Director of Sales and Marketing of the Santo Domingo Renaissance Jaragua Hotel, explained:

"It has been designed and conceived as Renaissance, as the brand states, with all elements of decor, customer service, of accommodation."

The hotel will also host mini-concerts with local artists on Wednesdays and poolside barbecues on Saturdays.

Owned by Marriott International, the hotel's facilities include an outdoor swimming pool, tennis club, a casino, lush tropical gardens, a spa, a modern fitness centre, a business centre, and an array of gourmet restaurants.

The Santo Domingo hotel first opened in 1987 on the former site of the Jaragua hotel, which dates back to 1942, and it is positioned close to the city's popular attractions, historical sites, shops and restaurants.

Santo Domingo is one of the oldest capital cities in the Caribbean and it is rich in history and heritage. The city is divided by the Ozama River and includes old Victorian houses, tree-lined streets, upscale hotels, casinos, historic monuments and tourist attractions such as Columbus's Lighthouse, where the explorer's remains are buried; the open caves of the Parque Nacional Los Tres Ojos; and the National Aquarium.

The city's Colonial Zone boasts several examples of 15th and 16th century architecture; beautiful churches, cathedrals and convents, including the Iglesia Regina Angelorum and the Convento de los Dominicos; and museums such as Alcazar de Colon, Museum of Duarte and the Museo del Ron Dominicano which turns into a rum bar after hours.

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