AMResorts will officially debut Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana (formerly NH Royal Beach) and Now Larimar Punta Cana (formerly NH Real Arena) in Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic on May 1. The introduction of Now Larimar represents the brand’s entry into the Caribbean and emphasizes AMResorts’ investment in the popular beach vacation destination of Punta Cana.
Through a recent strategic partnership with Spanish hotel company, NH Hoteles, AMResorts will now oversee the sales and marketing initiatives for both resorts, while NH Hoteles will continue operational control. As such, guests of both properties will enjoy the benefits of AMResorts’ Unlimited-Luxury all-inclusive concept.
To celebrate the openings, AMResorts is offering limited-time introductory rates for summer and fall travel. The following rates are quoted per person, per night, based on double occupancy:
Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana - $139 (summer) and $149 (fall)
Now Larimar Punta Cana - $99 (summer) and $89 plus kids stay free (fall)
