The luxury resort of Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic has broken ground on a $90 million building project designed to enhance the facilities and room options at the resort.
Sixty-four new 76 m2 (818 square foot) junior suite & Presidential suite rooms will be equipped with the latest technology and luxurious amenities. The new rooms will be located in 4 two storey buildings and offer breath-taking views overlooking the golf course.
Meanwhile, a new state of the art destination spa & wellness centre will enjoy tranquil views over the central lake. Covering 1,700 m2 (18,300 square feet) the new building will include world-class facilities such as a hydrotherapy area, cabins for specialised treatments, relaxation areas, café & juice bar and bridal suite.
The new facilities will be open in time for the start of the Winter 2022 season.
The resort, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, is known for its continued investment in world class facilities. A new conference centre opened in 2019, while a new family pool area, beach club, restaurants and golf learning centre were opened in 2018. Some of the existing hotel rooms were also upgraded at that time.
Luis Abinader, President of the Dominican Republic attended the ground breaking ceremony to the mark the start of the project and commented “The amount of investment in tourism, industry, commerce, & free zones, which will begin in 2022, is an absolutely unprecedented event in the history of the Dominican Republic. It shows the projections and optimism that is reflected in the hotel investment and tourism sectors.”
