There are big plans in store for Larimar City, Punta Cana’s newest cutting-edge resort and residential district. Just a stone’s throw away from downtown Punta Cana, guests will find everything from a 5-star resort to shopping and entertainment venues at the new complex. Larimar City combines comfortable living with high-tech solutions and modern amenities to provide guests and residents with an all-around versatile experience.
In response to changing travel and living needs, the Spanish construction firm CLERHP has been hired to oversee the implementation of the new project. Inspired by Dubai’s all-inclusive luxury, the new intelligent city as it’s being described will have everything travelers need to meet their needs.
Larimar City is a 2,7 million square meter development inspired by Mediterranean-style avenue buzz infused with tropical surroundings. Once complete, the district will be the first hybrid development of its kind in the Dominican Republic. Situated atop a hilly plot of land near Punta Cana, guests from both the hotel as well as the residential areas will be able to enjoy spectacular views of the surrounding nature.
In addition to the 5-star resort being planned, several 15-story residential blocks are currently in the making. Sustainability and natural themes are a key focus in the new city’s design, with plenty of green spaces dotted throughout the property.
Although many details are yet to be released, CLERHP, the construction firm, has already published some key blueprints. Here are some of the amenities guests will be able to find in the new intelligent city.
New 5-Star Resort
American hospitality firm EV Hotels will operate a 5-star luxury resort as part of the new development. The new hotel will have around 400 rooms, as well as an array of luxury amenities to keep guests relaxed and entertained. Set to begin construction sometime in 2023, the new resort is one of many opening up in Punta Cana over the next few years.
The hotel chain is promising to bring some innovative additions to its brand-new resort, such as the use of cutting-edge technology throughout guests’ stays. It’s also looking at incorporating blockchain, and crypto technology in the design process. According to Brian J. Esposito, EV’s Chief Intellectual Officer, “International demand for our hotels has grown, and we are proud to serve our Dominican clients with new IoT technologies (internet of things).”
The goal, according to the hotel, is to make staying at the lavish property more comfortable, by leveraging automatization processes to lower wait times and improve room maintenance, for example. Another key feature of the new development is the abundance of high-tech fitness centers aimed at both hotel guests as well as Larimar City residents.
Entertainment And Dining Options
Entertainment options will also be varied, with a golf cour, casino, water park, and shops found throughout the huge development. Although a significant part of the free-time amenities will be found on the city’s public main boulevard, guests at the resort and residential areas will find plenty of private amenities including pools, gyms, and parks.
Larimar City is also selling a variety of apartments for those who dream of owning a property or living in the tropics. Everything homeowners might need, from healthcare to shopping, can be found within a walking distance. And complete with views of Punta Cana’s nearby white-sand beaches, living in Larimar City is a tropical dream come true.
One to two-bedroom apartments ranging from 56 to 71 square meters in floor space starts at $89,000. The new housing developments will also rely on smart city technologies aimed at saving energy, thus helping lower prices in the long run.
