Club Med has announced that it will be opening a new resort in the little-known Miches region of the Dominican Republic.
Club Med Miches is the working title of the new resort, but not its final name. Guests will have the chance to help name the resort by visiting www.facebook.com/clubmedmiches on May 8 to vote for their preferred name. The final name will be announced May 10.
The all-inclusive resort will be Club Med’s first “5-Trident” resort to open in the Americas, joining Club Med’s Exclusive Collection, a selection of the brand’s best hotels from around the world. Five "Tridents" are the equivalent of five stars in the company’s own star rating system.
Club Med Miches is scheduled to open in December of 2019 and will be the first operating resort in the soon-to-be-developed region, according to a Club Med news release. Miches is located about an hour from Punta Cana International Airport. Club Med Miches marks Club Med’s "first and biggest new resort concept in the Caribbean in 25 years," according to the Club Med news release.
Club Med executives held a celebratory event on May 3 to officially unveil the resort’s first cabana day bed. The Club Med team was joined by government officials of the Dominican Republic, including H. E. Danilo Medina Sánchez, president of the Dominican Republic, as well as business, real estate and development partners contributing to this project.
Club Med Miches will be the company’s Exclusive Collection flagship resort in the Caribbean. The 93-acre resort will have a boutique resort-within-a-resort concept.
The resort will include adult-exclusive areas (a concept currently present in the Zen Oasis area of Club Med Punta Cana), Club Med’s children’s clubs for guests 4 months to 17 years of age and an array of inclusive land and water sports.
