Royalton Bavaro breaks ground in Punta Cana in Dominican Republic

The ground-breaking ceremony of a new Royalton Resorts hotel took place last week in the Caribbean. The ceremony was held a Bavaro Beach for the start of construction for the new Royalton Bavaro in Punta Cana.

The event was attended by the President of the Dominican Republic Danilo Medina, local ministers, and executives from the owners of the hotel group, Blue Diamond Resorts. The new resort is scheduled to open to guests in the 2017/2018 winter season.

Jordi Pelfort, the Managing Director of Blue Diamond Resorts, stated:

"We look forward to building on our presence in Punta Cana with Royalton Bavaro and enjoy the success we've shared at CHIC, Memories Splash and Royalton Punta Cana by the end of the year."

And added:

"Bavaro Beach was recently hailed as one of the best beaches in the world by TripAdvisor® and we couldn't be happier to bring guests another award-winning vacation experience here."

Royalton Bavaro will be the first Royalton Luxury Resort to be built from scratch in the Dominican Republic, and it will create 1,500 jobs. The cost of the construction of the new property is said to $200 million, and is being funded by the State-owned Banreservas bank.

The all-inclusive resort will have 730 guest rooms and suites that cater for groups of all sizes. All suites will feature large two-person bath tubs, ceiling rain showers, and handmade signature DreamBed™ mattresses, to ensure a peaceful night’s sleep.

Facilities at Royalton Bavaro include multiple swimming pools, a lazy river, a fitness centre, kids clubs, and the upscale Royal Spa with its variety of replenishing therapies and beauty treatments. The brand’s All-in Connectivity™ concept allows guests to stay connected during their stay, with free wireless internet available throughout the resort.

There are nine dining options at the beachfront resort, and guests can savour delicious cuisine in a selection of casual and stylish indoor and outdoor settings. There will be a beach buffet restaurant, the authentic Hunter Steakhouse, and Royalton’s signature teppanyaki restaurant Zen.

Bavaro Beach is an award-winning sandy stretch that boasts a tranquil lagoon and is protected by a barrier reef. The beach is lined with luxury hotels and resorts, and guests can enjoy the powder-soft white sand and the warm calm waters that are perfect for swimming, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba diving.

Royalton Resorts is owned and operated by Blue Diamond Resorts, and the company has a portfolio of all-inclusive luxury resorts across Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, St Lucia, Mexico and Cuba. The hotel brand also operates several adults-only hotels in the Caribbean and Mexico.
