Meliá Hotels International and its joint-venture partner Falcon’s Beyond have announced the opening of Falcon’s Resort by Meliá – All Suites Punta Cana. It is the first resort to open under the new leisure and entertainment-based brand, Falcon’s Resorts by Meliá.

The new brand blends resort amenities with entertainment experiences, including access to Katmandu Park, Punta Cana, a new theme park located near the property. Until March 15, 2023, resort guests will enjoy exclusive access to select attractions as a sneak peek before the park fully opens to the public. Katmandu Park, Punta Cana will offer four marquee attractions, besides 36 holes of mini golf, an outdoor ropes course and a carousel, to name a few. In the future, guests will also have direct access to curated dining, shopping and entertainment venues as part of a larger destination experience in development.

Falcon’s Resort by Meliá – All Suites Punta Cana, an all-inclusive resort located on the Dominican Republic’s Bávaro Beach, is a multi-phase transformation of two existing Meliá properties, Paradisus Grand Cana and Garden Suites by Meliá, comprising 622 rooms. During the first phase, Paradisus Grand Cana was rebranded, covering its 432 suites, three swimming pools, nine restaurants, four bars, a spa and fitness center. Phase Two includes the rebranding of Garden Suites by Meliá, which has 190 rooms, and is expected to be completed by late 2023.

The property’s suites range from 800 to 2990 square feet with living areas and furnished private balconies or terraces, complete with views of the garden or main pool. The suites also have a dining area and bar counter, and a lounge area equipped with a smart TV and comfortable seating. Resort guests who book a standard suite will receive one single-use pass to Katmandu Park, per guest. Tip: Guests can also upgrade to “The Beyond Suite Experience” for an elevated stay and exclusive benefits. These include a personalized concierge, priority reservations for activities and restaurants, customized turn-down, a dinner experience around the Beyond Pool (one per stay) and a multi-day pass to Katmandu Park.

Falcon’s Resort by Meliá – All Suites Punta Cana is one component of a new $350 million entertainment destination called Falcon’s Beyond Destinations that will comprise three distinct guest experiences: The resort, the theme park and a retail, dining and entertainment district called Falcon’s Central. Through the property’s “resortainment” offering, guests can complement their beach vacation in the Caribbean with a theme park experience at Katmandu Park.
