Melia inaugurates two spanking new resorts in Punta Cana´s Bavaro Beach

Plunging ahead in the new year with the opening of not one but two stunning new resorts in Punta Cana’s most popular (and most exclusive) stretch of beach, Melia has sure been busy in the lead-up to 2019! New year, new properties and, may we add, what gems of a couple of resorts they are! Scroll down to find out all the details about the Dominican Republic’s newest, most exciting enclaves by Melia.

Melia inaugurates two spanking new resorts in Punta Cana´s Bavaro Beach

Prestigious Spanish hotelier Melia Hotels International is not one to rest on its laurels and proof of it is the very recent opening of not one but two gorgeous resorts in the Dominican Republic’s premier beach resort. The ever popular (and increasingly so) Punta Cana has just welcomed two beautiful beachfront properties, both located in the privileged beach stretch known as Bavaro.

Starting off 2019 with a bang, Melia has just opened the result of its $30 million investment to transform the former Melia Caribe Tropical into two different, separate luxury all-inclusive resorts in the Dominican Republic’s most coveted beach.

The first of these newly-created resorts by Melia, is the Melia Punta Cana Beach Resort, an adults-only property with a refreshed, modern design that seamlessly blends in Spanish colonial touches typical of this part of the world. The luxury property also includes The LEVEL, Melia’s signature concept for elevated luxury, consisting of a separate area with 136 suites, a VIP check-in lounge as well as an exclusive pool and restaurant.

With a total of 538 plush, spacious rooms, the new Melia Punta Cana Beach Resort will boast five tantalising dining venues, including signature Mediterranean restaurant, Mosaico.

On the other hand, the Melia Caribe Beach Resort has been designed to treat families to a pampering, relaxing stay with an impeccable collection of 132 beachside family rooms, 332 stunning premium and deluxe rooms, as well as 154 LEVEL suites since this new property will also feature The LEVEL by Melia.

When it comes to dining, guests at Melia Caribe Beach Resort can look forward to all-day eateries like the Riviera buffet restaurant to sophisticated gourmet bites at Japanese specialty restaurant Hokkaido. There is also a Mediterranean restaurant, a Tex-Mex restaurant, a Vietnamese restaurant, Spanish restaurant and an exciting Peruvian-Japanese fusion restaurant called Merkado. And that’s just to name a few!

Beyond that, in the coming months Melia Caribe will launch two more dining venues with the opening of Tartufo (an Italian restaurant) and Bazaar, an innovative food truck and buffet station with a fresh and modern menu. According to a statement from Melia Hotels International, both restaurants will debut later on in the year and are expected for winter 2019.

As one would expect from a family resort, Melia Caribe will also boast amazing kids’ facilities, from fun kids’ club with fun supervised programmes to a splashingly fabulous Kids Water Park to open later on in the winter season.

All guests at Melia Punta Cana Beach Resort and Melia Caribe Beach Resort will also get unlimited tee times at the nearby 18-hole championship Cocotal Golf & Country Club.

To make the deal even sweeter, both resorts which are located next to each other as part of a twin complex, will have Melia’s signature YHI Spa to rejuvenate guests’ body and mind. Could we really ask for more to envisage the perfect Dominican Republic holiday?
