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.
TORONTO — Palladium Hotel Group is expanding its upscale TRS Hotel brand with the opening of the TRS Cap Cana Hotel, a new adults-only resort property in the D.R.
The resort will open Nov. 1 with 115 luxury suites, 39 swim-up junior suites, nine ocean view suites and one ambassador suite. There are also two pools with waiter service, an extensive gym and Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness, as well as a personal butler and 24-hour room service.
The site is currently undergoing renovations prior to its Nov. 1 opening in order to convey the elegance and cutting-edge design of the TRS Hotel brand, say Palladium Hotel Group reps. The all-inclusive property is about 10 minutes from Punta Cana Airport.
Two à la carte restaurants will be on site: Gaucho, offering Argentinian specialties; and an informal Japanese à la carte restaurant offering street food specialties.
TRS Cap Cana will also offer TRS Hotels brands’ Helios beach club, billed as a fresh and stylish dining experience inspired by the famous beach clubs of Ibiza. Other culinary features include two show cooking restaurants, a coffee shop, and four premium bars including the Gaia pool bar and the Gravity Sky Lounge Bar.
Nearby diversions include the Jack Nicklaus signature golf course Punta Espada, eco-tourism adventures, international fishing tournaments, luxury yachting charters, polo fields and natural theme park Scape Park.
The TRS Cap Cana Hotel opening announcement comes at a time of growth for Palladium Hotel Group. The company plans to open two new properties in Costa Mujeres, Mexico in November 2018 – TRS Coral Hotel and Grand Palladium Costa Mujeres Resort & Spa – as well as two new hotels in the BLESS Collection Hotels, opening in January and Summer 2019 in Madrid and Ibiza.
In total TRS Hotels include TRS Turquesa Hotel (Punta Cana, Dominican Republic), TRS Yucatan Hotel (Riviera Maya, Mexico), and TRS Coral Hotel (Costa Mujeres, Mexico – opening November 2018).
