Hilton is growing its all-inclusive portfolio with the signing of a management deal to welcome the first all-inclusive Curio Collection by Hilton property in the Dominican Republic.
Expected to open in 2024, the 502-room new-build Zemi Miches All-Inclusive Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton will represent Hilton’s 10th all-inclusive property in the Caribbean and Latin America, according to a press release.
The property will be located north of Punta Cana in the coastal town of Miches, an untapped area known for its pristine beaches, sprawling mountain landscapes and lush natural surroundings.
Bungalows & swim-ups
Located about 60 miles from Punta Cana International Airport, the beachfront property will sit on a half-mile stretch of Esmeralda Beach and will have six four-story buildings and 18 free standing beach bungalows.
This includes 123 ground level swim-up guest rooms featuring individual plunge pools that connect via a winding pool allowing guests to swim to other areas of the resort.
The project also promises 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
Zemi Miches All-Inclusive Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton will also participate in Hilton Honors, the guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 19 brands, and will offer guests an array of onsite entertainment and amenities including a night club, kids club and retail shops.
Nine food and drink options will tempt palates with exceptional cuisine, from Asian, Taino, Italian and seafood to an all-day buffet, lobby bar, sports bar and more.
The property is owned by Zemi Hotels & Resorts, S.R.L. and will be managed by Hilton.
