Club Med, the pioneer of the all-inclusive concept, is exerting its pioneering spirit once more through the unveiling of an unspoiled, lush region in the Dominican Republic. Miches, a preserved paradise located on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, will play host to the company’s newest endeavor, Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda. The all-inclusive resort will be Club Med’s first 5-Trident resort to open in the Americas, joining Club Med’s Exclusive Collection, a selection of the brand’s most exclusive properties around the world. Scheduled to open in December 2019, it will be the very first operating resort in the soon-to-be-developed region.
Xavier Mufraggi, CEO of Club Med, North America says, “Club Med first discovered the unmatched beauty of the Dominican Republic in 1978, when our resort in Punta Cana opened its doors. We pioneered the destination into what it is today. Fast forward 40 years, and with the assistance of our partners and the warm, welcoming spirit of the Dominican people, we continue our world-renowned pioneering spirit. In less than two short years, we will open the doors to our Club Med resort in Miches, introducing this tropical destination and its beautiful beaches to the rest of the world.”
Miches is a pristine, natural haven in a lush Dominican palm grove. It is situated about an hour from the Punta Cana International Airport, easily accessible via a scenic highway with captivating mountain views. This hidden paradise features miles of untouched tranquil coastlines with unique natural gems. Local wonders provide various opportunities for guests to discover new breathtaking sights and activities.
Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda will be the company’s Exclusive Collection flagship resort in the Caribbean. The 93-acre resort will create the ultimate eco-chic luxury experience with a touch of Club Med’s legendary spirit and multicultural conviviality. Unparalleled service by the dedicated resort team will ensure guests receive an elevated vacation experience, fortifying the resort’s exclusive and intimate accommodations, eco-chic atmosphere, unique architecture, refined dining and lounge spaces, rich and culturally immersive excursion programs, and reinvigorating activities and wellness program. The resort will feature a boutique resort-within-a-resort concept to ensure guests receive a customized active vacation pertaining to their needs and interests.
With more than 70 resorts worldwide, featuring beachside resorts, ski mountain resorts, and private villas and chalets, Club Med continues to expand its upscale product offering to the ever-changing demands of travelers. Club Med is currently expanding its portfolio with more than 15 new resorts scheduled to open by the end of 2020.
