Radisson Hotel Group is to add a resort property in the Dominican Republic resort town of Punta Cana.

The existing hotel is located on Cabeza de Toro beach, around ten minutes from downtown and  Punta Cana International airport.

The property is currently undergoing renovations, and is expected to reopen in the fourth quarter of this year as the Radisson Blu Resort and Residences, Punta Cana.

The resort features 164 suites, some with full kitchens and views of the Caribbean Sea, as well as a spa, fitness centre, beach access and outdoor pool.

There will also be five dining options including Caribbean, Italian and a juice bar and deli.

The hotel will join Radisson Hotel Group’s existing property in the Dominican Republic’s capital Santo Domingo.

Commenting on the signing Jim Alderman, chief executive officer, Americas, Radisson Hotel Group, said:

“While our world looks a little different today, we know travel will return, and we are working diligently to provide the best hotels, in top destinations, with in-depth cleanliness and disinfection procedures for our guests as soon as they feel safe to travel again.

“Radisson Blu is showing incredible growth in the Caribbean with upcoming locations in Aruba, Grenada and now the Dominican Republic, which demonstrates our momentum as we move forward in executing our strategic growth strategy.”
