Hard Rock International to open new hotel and casino in Santo Domingo

Hard Rock International has revealed plans of its newest hotel project in the Caribbean. The hotel group will open its second hotel in the Dominican Republic in 2017 with the launch of Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Santo Domingo in collaboration with All Inclusive Collection.

Located in the heart of the capital, the property will have 400 guest rooms and suites, including a Rock Star Suite and a Rock Royalty Level floor.

Nelson Parker, the Vice President of Casino Development for Hard Rock International, explained:

"The Dominican Republic is the region's most visited country and continues to be the top performing destination in the Caribbean. In fact, the country received 19% of the record number of 26.3 million visitors to the Caribbean region in 2014.

"The decision to bring a full service hotel and the brand's second Caribbean casino to the Dominican Republic is a testament to the country's remarkable strength in tourism."

Facilities at the luxury hotel will include a modern 23,000-square-foot casino with two bars, 400 slot machines, and 40 table games; a nightclub that open out into the main swimming pool, the Rock Shop; a pool with a bar and grill, and cabanas; and an array of gourmet restaurants and stylish bars, including a cigar lounge.

Guests can indulge in pampering treatments at the signature Rock Spa with its Rhythm and Motion menu that features music-inspired treatments and services such as Synchronicity, a pulsating massage featuring greatest classic hits that uses techniques, pressure and rhythm with natural organic essential oils to reduce stress, ease muscle tension, and detoxify the body.

Guests staying at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Santo Domingo can enjoy a range of rock-n-roll programmes, such as the free interactive Sound Of Your Stay® amenity– free that offers hands-on music experiences, in-room guitar jam sessions, playlist download upon check-in, and in-room delivery of professional DJ equipment.

"We've had overwhelming success with our resort in Punta Cana, and are thrilled to continue our collaboration with Hard Rock International and introduce Hard Rock Hotel and Casino Santo Domingo."

Commented Frank Maduro, the Vice President of Marketing for All Inclusive Collection. Mr Maduro also explained:

"The vibrant atmosphere of the destination, matched with our luxury offerings and unique amenities, will make for an unforgettable and fun experience for all travellers."
