With Punta Cana trending as one of the most popular Caribbean destinations this year, many international hospitality firms are announcing a spate of new projects in the coastal hotspot.

The latest one to do so in HM Hotels, which is re-launching two of its major Punta Cana properties this November. With travelers increasingly demanding more luxury and unique experiences, HM Hotels has given two of its most stunning properties a massive makeover.

As Punta Cana gears up for its busiest winter season on record, here’s the latest on two of its newest luxury resorts.

HM Hotels Launches Two New Resorts In These Trendy Beach Locations 

Punta Cana is all the rage with travelers this year.

The leading resort destination in the Dominican Republic welcomes over 70% of the country’s travelers, and with that number set to grow further, new resorts are needed to accommodate demand.

That’s why HM Hotels recently decided to renovate two of its Punta Cana properties to further elevate the guest experience. The properties, which used to operate under the whala!hotels brand, have undergone extensive renovations to prepare them for relaunching under the new HM brand.

The first of the two properties, HM Bávaro Beach, will be a 50-room boutique-style resort featuring gorgeous views of the Caribbean Sea. The adults-only property is designed to give guests direct access to Punta Cana’s most famous beach, Bávaro, where they can enjoy a refreshing dip in the sea as well as an endless array of outdoor activities.

The rebranded property also boasts lavish suites that are equipped with all the necessary amenities for a paradisiacal getaway. Two outdoor pools – including a rooftop one with views to the sea – and an Italian-inspired eatery complete the experience at one of Punta Cana’s most intimate properties.

HM Hotels is also launching a second property in Bayahíbe, an immensely popular resort destination just south of Punta Cana. Known for its verdant rainforests, crystal clear waters, and beautiful national parks, Bayahibe is a great choice for travelers seeking a calmer and more laid-back experience.

HM’s new Alma de Bayahíbe property has some 290 rooms and an extensive list of on-site amenities. The upscale resort is built on top of a cliff that overlooks Bayahíbe’s crystal-clear waters. Guests can splash around in 5 beautiful outdoor pools that resemble a tropical oasis. 

Surrounded by lush tropical rainforests, guests can unwind in a peaceful atmosphere, making this the perfect choice for an adults-only getaway. 

Travelers can look forward to an unparalleled all-inclusive stay complete with fine dining, bars, and nightly entertainment, all of which are a major focus of HM’s newest property.

Growing travel numbers mean more and more firms are launching new resorts in the popular hotspot. Late last year, Falcon’s Beyond inaugurated the cutting-edge Kathmandu theme park in Punta Cana, the first-ever in the Caribbean. Combined with Melia’s luxury resorts, travelers can enjoy a unique fusion of entertainment and high-end accommodations.

Meanwhile, existing resorts are undergoing massive renovations to prepare themselves for growing traveler numbers. Last year, Paradisus Palma Real completed a costly $40 million renovation that enhanced the property with fresh interiors, new amenities, and a promise of world-class service.
