Construction starts on Miches resorts in Dominican Republic

Construction has begun on two all-inclusive AMResorts
properties in Miches on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic, about an
80-minute drive from Punta Cana.

The Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana and Dreams Playa
Esmeralda Punta Cana will each have 750 rooms and suites, with 250 rooms at
each resort exclusively for Preferred Club guests.

The resorts will be part of $400 million complex called
Playa Esmeralda that will also feature a convention center, a theater for live
performances, and retail and dining venues. 

The project is scheduled for completion at the end of 2022.

“Miches is poised to become one of the Dominican Republic’s
top markets for all-inclusive resorts,” said Javier Coll, executive vice
president and chief strategy officer of Apple Leisure Group, parent company of
AMResorts. “This area has been largely overlooked, despite its significant
attributes. However, our team’s long history and proven experience in this
market has allowed us to identify and move on this opportunity.”

Last month, Club Med held its grand opening for the 335-room
Club Med Miches Playa Esmeralda, and a resort complex with a 169-room Four
Seasons at its center is scheduled to open in Miches next year.

The Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana and Dreams Playa Esmeralda
Punta Cana will bring AMResorts’ total number of properties in the Caribbean to
20.
