PALMA DE MALLORCA — Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts’ much-anticipated Cayo Levantado Resort is now taking reservations ahead of its grand opening in June 2023.
Billed as an enchanting island hotel in the Dominican Republic, the resort is Bahia Principe’s entry into the luxury hotel segment business, bringing together sustainability, local traditions, curated experiences and upscale amenities. The resort takes over from the previous property, Luxury Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado.
Under the concept ‘A Rhythm All Its Own’, the guest experience at Cayo Levantado Resort focuses on three pillars: local culture, sustainability, and wellness.
Bookings opened Dec. 1, for stays starting June 1, 2023.
In his ‘Future of Travel: 2022’ interview with Travelweek earlier this year, Bahia Principe’s Director of Sales & Marketing, Henry Perez, said Cayo Levantado Resort is really something special.
“We are creating a sustainable resort where you can experience a rhythm all its own,” Perez told Travelweek. “The resort is as unique as anything you will find in the industry.
“THE D.R.’S NEWEST SECLUDED PARADISE”
Located on the island of Cayo Levantado, a few miles away from Samaná Bay, the resort has been completely rebranded, and extensively renovated. Under the concept of ‘A Rhythm All Its Own’, Bahia Principe says Cayo Levantado Resort aims to offer an expertly curated, distinctly Dominican, and decidedly authentic experience.
“We are thrilled to announce the launch of this very unique nature’s enclave,” says Lluisa Salord, VP of Sales, Contracting and Distribution. “Cayo Levantado Resort is certainly an important benchmark in the Dominican Republic, a major sustainable innovation project taking shape with the help of local companies and talent in Samana. This project not only adds value to the tourism sector, but also contributes to the development of the country and the local community.”
Cayo Levantado Resort is the flagship for Bahia Principe Hotel & Resorts, which is evolving its business and entering the luxury hotel management segment with the aim of improving its offer and adding value to the tourism sector, Salord added.
The company says one of the resort’s great strengths and differentiators is its cultural impact, which was done by incorporating talent from the D.R., thereby contributing, and enhancing the economic and social development of the area.
The island is made up of three incredible sandy and palm-fringed beaches, one being open to the public and two that are exclusively for guests staying at Cayo Levantado Resort.
The resort offers 200+ rooms, three à la carte restaurants, two specialty restaurants, one buffet restaurant, four bars and a coffee shop. There are also two swimming pools, two spas (including a jungle spa), an outdoor CrossFit area, a beach club, a personal training studio, a beauty salon, botanic garden, a wide range of entertainment activities and an exclusive area focused on wellness.
