Club Med Punta Cana announced this week the completion of the early stages of a $34 million renovation project, which included a new spa, suites and facilities for children. The next stages, however, will force the popular Dominican Republic resort to shut its doors for nearly two months.
From August 31 to October 24, Club Med Punta Cana will not have any guests to make upgrades to the restaurant, the main bar and the remaining guest rooms. We were told by a Club Med spokeswoman that the closure has been programmed in Club Med’s booking system for more than 11 months and as a result, the resort did not have any bookings for that time period. And as far as getting the word out to agents, Club Med sales team visits agents on a regular basis to keep them updated on all changes. In addition, regular blasts are sent to over 75,000 travel agents with updates on Punta Cana and other resort renovations. Club Med is also in the process of planning a series of regional fam trips in November and a larger FAM in December to Punta.
