It’s one thing to know that travel agent associations are lobbying the government on agents’ behalf. It’s another to actually hear it and see it in action.
TORONTO — Another batch of top Caribbean resorts have announced their reopening dates, just in time for the winter season.
The latest properties set to welcome back guests following months of temporary closures due to the COVID-19 pandemic include TRS Cap Cana Hotel in Punta Cana, Atlantis Paradise Island in the Bahamas, and Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, also in the Bahamas.
TRS CAP CANA HOTEL, Punta Cana
Palladium Hotel Group will resume operations in the Dominican Republic next month with the reopening of the adults-only TRS Cap Cana Hotel on Dec. 4. Located just 10 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport, the hotel offers an all-inclusive experience that includes the Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness centre, a long, pristine beach and an exclusive marina where guests can enjoy boat trips, fishing and diving.
To ensure a worry-free stay for all guests, Palladium Hotel Group is offering free medical insurance through its Stay Safe Plus program. Through the program, guests are protected against any unforeseen circumstances as a result of the current pandemic. Palladium’s health and safety protocols are certified by SGS, the world’s leading inspection, verification, testing and certification services company.
ATLANTIS PARADISE ISLAND, the Bahamas

On-property construction continued throughout the resort’s temporary closure as part of Phase II, a US$300 million investment that includes contemporary upgrades and improvements to Meliá Nassau Beach and other outdoor offerings such as Baha Bay Beach Club and Baha Bay, the all-new luxury aquatic experience scheduled for completion in 2021.
