Brand new Falcon’s Resort by Meliá opens in Punta Cana

PUNTA CANA — Punta Cana has welcomed a new gem of a resort to its shores, courtesy of Meliá Hotels International. 

Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana, a joint venture with Falcon’s Beyond, is the first resort to debut under the new leisure and entertainment-based brand Falcon’s Resorts by Meliá.

Offering a unique ‘resortainment’ experience, the five-star, all-inclusive, 622-room resort located on Bávaro Beach is the result of a multi-phase transformation of two existing Meliá properties: Paradisus Grand Cana and Garden Suites by Meliá. Phase One has rebranded Paradisus Grand Cana and includes 432 luxury suites, three pools, nine specialty restaurants and a spa and fitness centre. Phase Two will see the rebrand of Garden Suites by Meliá and will include 190 rooms to be completed by late 2023.

“It is a sincere honour to welcome guests to the first Falcon’s Resort by Meliá property in beautiful Punta Cana,” said André Gerondeau, COO of Meliá Hotels International. “Meliá has deep roots in the Dominican Republic – with our first property opening in Punta Cana over 30 years ago. The development of Falcon’s Resort by Meliá will add a new level of casual, sophisticated and unexpected fun to the traditional vacation experience.”

Meliá and Falcon’s will develop multiple Falcon’s Beyond Destination locations across the globe in the upcoming years, including sites in Tenerife, Canary Islands, and Mexico.

 Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana opening rates start at US$420 per night for standard rooms and $700 per night for Beyond Suites, all-inclusive at double occupancy.

Here are additional highlights of the resort:


The property’s suites range from 800 to 2,990 square feet with spacious living areas and furnished private balconies and terraces with pool or garden views. The suites also feature a dining area and bar counter, plus a lounge area equipped with a smart TV. Resort guests who book a standard suite will receive one 1-use pass to Katmandu Park (per guest).

Guests can also upgrade to The Beyond Suite Experience, which includes a personalized Beyond Concierge, priority reservations for activities and restaurants, customized turndown, a dinner experience around the Beyond Pool (one per stay), and a multi-day pass to Katmandu Park. With this upgrade, guests can also select from a variety of accommodation categories, including swimup suites with a whirlpool bathtub on their private terrace.


Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana is one component of a new US$350 million entertainment destination called Falcon’s Beyond Destinations that will feature three distinct guest experiences: the resort, the new theme park Katmandu Park | Punta Cana, and a retail, dining and entertainment district called Falcon’s Central. 

Located just steps from the resort, the state-of-the-art Katmandu Park | Punta Cana includes four marquee attractions and the use of several proprietary ride technologies. Attractions include 36 holes of mini golf, an outdoor ropes course and a Katmandu-themed carousel. 

From now through March 15, 2023, resort guests will receive exclusive access to select attractions before the full park opens to the public. In the future, guests will also have direct access to curated dining, shopping and entertainment venues as part of a larger destination experience.


Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana features two offerings for kids: the Habitat Club and BLAST! Waterpark. Habitat Club is a modern and spacious kids club that encourages children of multiple age groups to participate in creative activity programs. At the resort’s BLAST! Waterpark, kids can enjoy multiple attractions and water slides to cool off from the heat.

Falcon’s Resort by Meliá | All Suites Punta Cana is home to nine restaurant concepts that serve Asian, Latin, Mediterranean and Caribbean cuisine. Top-shelf liquor and wines are available throughout the property’s four bars. At MAIA Signature Spa by Natura Bissé, guests can also enjoy traditional therapies and treatments.



In early 2023, resort guests will be able to access BeyondME, a new fan loyalty and online game platform that will enable individuals of all ages to connect, personalize and be rewarded for their engagement across digital and real-world experiences. The BeyondME smart wearable technology provides access to rooms, Katmandu Park | Punta Cana rides, park passes and individual profiles, and also enables guests to conduct cashless transactions and interact with various attractions and touchpoints across the properties. 

BeyondME encourages players to gain ‘experience points’ called XP, by participating in a variety of real-world experiences across the resort, park, Falcon’s Central, as well as virtual experiences within the BeyondME web app and by playing BeyondME-enabled online games. XP points can be redeemed for various discounts and upgrades.

MeliáRewards members will soon be able to link their account to unlock higher BeyondME status tiers and convert MeliaRewards points to XP. Guests staying in a Beyond Suite will receive extra XP points and higher tiered status during their stay.
