AMResorts® expands in the Dominican Republic

December was a good month for the Dominican Republic following the opening of two new AMResorts®, Sunscape® The Beach Punta Cana on December 1, 2004 and Sunscape® Puerto Aventuras Riviera Maya on December 15, 2004. Sunscape® The Beach Punta Cana opened in the beautiful resort area of Uvero Alto in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, an area specifically chosen for its exquisite pristine beaches and magnificent shoreline. Catering to friends, families and couples, this 616 room, first-class resort features 422 premium rooms; 54 deluxe private garden swim-out rooms; 28 honeymoon deluxe rooms; 96 honeymoon suites and eight two-bedroom master oceanfront suites.

Sunscape® Puerto Aventuras Riviera Maya opened on December 15, 2004. In order to bring the resort up to the standards that are associated with the Sunscape® Resorts & Spas brand, the property closed in September and completed an extensive renovation program, valued at more than US $4 million.

The resort was completely re-conceptualized, with a new swimming pool with swim up pool bar, total remodeling of all rooms, additional restaurants and bars, sports, entertainment and activities venues, a spa and fitness center and much more. Additionally, a wedding gazebo, a completed renovated spa and fitness center and Sunscape’s signature kid’s Explorer’s Club will be completed in Spring 2005.

The 300-room Sunscape® Puerto Aventuras is set amidst the beauty and mystery of the Mayan coast, on a private beach in the marina community of Puerto Aventuras, just 10 minutes south of Playa del Carmen and minutes north of the Mayan ruins of Xcaret and Tulum.

Sunscape® Resorts & Spas is a member of Summit Hotels & Resorts, a collection of 145 unique and culturally elegant luxury hotels in 100 popular destinations around the world.
