Club Med officially opened Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda, its first-ever Exclusive Collection resort in the Americas, on Nov. 23, 2019.
Nestled on an unspoiled beach in Miches, Dominican Republic, this 93-acre resort is the first major site to open within the region.
“The opening of Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda marks a huge milestone in Club Med’s history,” said Carolyne Doyon, president and CEO of Club Med North America, who was also one of the first on-site to welcome the resort’s inaugural guests. “This new resort embodies the strong trailblazing spirit at the heart of Club Med. We open our doors to travelers from all over the world in hopes that they too can experience what first drew us to Miches: the rich culture, the pristine and untouched beaches, the beautifully lush landscapes, and the welcoming, lively spirit that abounds in the Dominican Republic.”
In addition to its innovative boutique villages concept, Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda enacts an eco-chic concept that takes the surrounding region and environment into consideration from start to finish. The project was designed and executed to minimize its environmental footprint and the resort enacts a green-minded mentality in its everyday operations.
The four boutique villages
Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda introduces a new concept to the brand’s Exclusive Collection. To create a more personalized, customizable and intimate experience catered to each guest, the resort features four boutique villages (none of which are higher than two stories to blend into the surrounding foliage).
Each of the four boutique villages presents its own unique environment, activities and accommodations. The villages include Archipelago, Caribbean Paradise, Emerald Jungle and Explorer Cove.
