Any time a country or region imposes any sort of visa stipulation - even if it’s a waiver - the travel industry sighs a collective groan, knowing the obstacles and headaches to come.
MIAMI — Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts says its rebranded Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine, the first adults-only hotel under the Grand Bahia Principe brand, is getting ready to welcome guests starting Nov. 1.
Back in May 2018 Bahia Principe announced it was making the move to rebrand one of its top properties in Punta Cana, the Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar Green, into Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine.
As an adults-only resort the 498-suite property will feature rejuvenated day and nighttime entertainment for guests 18 years and older.
“At Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts, we pride ourselves on providing upscale yet approachable hospitality in the Caribbean and we’ve recently taken the initiative to clearly segment and develop each one of our property’s personalities,” saus Lluisa Salord, Senior VP Global Sales, Contracting and Distribution, Grupo Piñero.
“With the opening of Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine, we hope to strengthen our adults-only business while ensuring consistent quality across our accommodations, amenities and distinct entertainment program. We experienced a demand for an adults-only Grand property in Punta Cana, and we are confident that Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine will exceed our guests’ expectations.”
From wine tasting classes to rum mixology lessons, from card and board game tournaments to themed parties with live music and shows, the all-inclusive resort will be a well-rounded entertainment destination within the Bahia Principe Bavaro complex, she added.
Other events to be hosted at the property include burlesque performances, foam parties and DJ socials at the hotel lobby. For fitness aficionados, new wellness and sports activities will be held throughout Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine, including TRX workouts, CrossFit, Zumba, HIIT training and merengue and salsa dance lessons.
Guests of Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine will be allowed unlimited a la carte dinners and access to the three other Grand Bahia Principe hotels of the complex. The complex offers a la carte dining establishments that serve dishes from across the globe, including traditional Dominican fare, Italian specialties and Japanese-Peruvian cuisine.
For use by guests of Grand Bahia Principe Aquamarine and all Luxury brand properties, Bahia Principe’s Bavaro complex will also receive some upgrades of its own, including a new sports bar and fitness centre exclusively for adults.
