We hope you will be excited as we are to hear that the ALG (Apple Leisure Group) has signed a brand new development deal with AMresorts to help bring a new top of the line luxury resort to the Dominican Republic.

Beautiful Woman at the beach in Dominican Republic

Two resorts, Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana and Dreams Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana will both be located in the Playa Esmeralda, Miches region in the northeast of the Dominican Republic. Situated right along the coast. Making it the perfect place for a brand new resort. Or two. This brand new resort will be just 45 minutes away from the Punta Cana airport making it not only quick to get to but easy. Who wants to spend hours in the back of a cab, rental car or minibus for hours after they just got off the plane? ALG has a strong focus on mutually beneficial deals. Deals that benefit their shareholders and guests, of course, but also their local communities and host countries.

Safety and Security is the top priority

These twin resorts will play host to more than 1500 units with an interconnecting promenade to make getting around and just hanging out easier. Both resorts will have full access to everything that the promenade has to offer. From shopping to entertainment, theatres, spas, restaurants, and even more shopping! The promenade will be the home of a state of the art fitness center to ensure you don’t let all of your hard work slip away as you vacation. Perhaps the biggest selling point of the promenade is their wide selection of gourmet restaurants and elevated buffets.

Initially, each Secrets and Dreams branded property will each host 750 luxurious suites and rooms with 250 rooms set aside for preferred club guests. Each resort destination has a slightly different focus to ensure that you find the right vacation for you. Here are the distinct focused of each of the two resorts.

Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana:

First up we have Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana. This resort has been designed with a very adult focus and theme. You will find 4 distinct bars concepts, 4 incredible snack bars, and a preferred guest lounge. The whole resort is designed to be very intimate and romantic. This resort is certainly geared towards couples or just generally more mature groups. Both resorts have access to the promenade, of course, so you won’t be missing out.

Dreams Playa Esmerelda Punta Cana:

The Dreams Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana is the family orientated of the pair. Three snack bars and 4 bars, substituting the 4th snack bar for an explorers club for the younger guests. There is an additional preferred guest’s private lounge as well as a teen zone for guests aged 13-17. This resort is certainly the better of the two for a family vacation, it’s far more child friendly. This doesn’t mean it can’t be enjoyed by the parents, not at all! Just that there are more activities available to the kids to keep them entertained all day. They can’t spend all day drinking at the bar!

The whole of Miches has been unfairly overlooked for far too long, this beautiful area has so much to offer yet has seen very little development. Miches seems destined to become one of the most impressive areas in the Dominican Republic for all-inclusive resorts. ALG has invested a lot of time, and money, performing deep research into the area to ensure that its resorts are built responsibly and sustainably. ALG is incredibly happy with their choice to start developing in Miches as they truly believe they will be making a positive impact in the community both socially and economically.

Taking the worry away from Traveling

ALG’s dedicated development team is so excited to continue its development of the Miches area. They fully expect the resorts to be completed on schedule for the end of 2022. More details about these two amazing resorts will come out slowly over the next year or so as more firm decisions are made. Further details will be forthcoming to give you the opportunity to learn more about everything these two incredible resorts will have one offer. As always ALG is proud to bring the AMresorts footprints to new and exciting areas. Stay tuned for more!
