A new sustainable hotel will open on the Caribbean island of the Dominican Republic. With the growing demand for slower, more sustainable travel, this opening announcement has aligned the Caribbean as one of the go-to destinations for sustainable travel.

Summer looks to be an exciting time for travelers heading island-side to enjoy summer in an environmentally friendly way. Cayo Levantado Resort, a brand-new resort under the Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts portfolio, will welcome guests on June 1, 2023. Located on the island of Cayo Levantado, the resort is just a few miles away from Samaná Bay. Completely rebranded, and extensively renovated, it will invite travelers to discover the Dominican Republic. The A Rhythm All Its Own concept is full of ways to give back to the industry and the country. 

Cayo Levantado Resort offers a distinctly Dominican, and decidedly authentic experience. The much-anticipated hotel re-opening is the flagship of Bahia Principe Hotel & Resorts, adding a new twist to luxury sustainable travel. More, the resort will also have significant cultural impact by incorporating talent from the Dominican Republic.

“We are thrilled to announce the launch of this very unique nature’s enclave,” said Lluisa Salord, VP of Sales, Contracting and Distribution. “Cayo Levantado Resort is certainly an important benchmark in the Dominican Republic, a major sustainable innovation project taking shape with the help of local companies and talent in Samaná.”
