Grupo Piñero, the parent company of Bahia Principe, is making a major USD $30 million investment to revamp Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar. Located in Punta Cana, the 528-room oceanfront property will reopen in November becoming an adults-only vacation haven with updated accommodations and new facilities for guests to enjoy.
Progress report: what's changed?
Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar’s makeover began in June with hotel rooms and common areas receiving updates. The property incorporated 144 swim-up suites that give guests access to a newly-built private pool surrounded by the hotel’s lush gardens.
Enhancing the property’s culinary scene, the hotel’s restaurants were reimagined and will now boast modern interior designs. Luxury Bahia Principe Ambar is part of the brand’s seven-property complex on famed Bavaro Beach in Punta Cana, which has begun to receive some upgrades of its own. Guests of all Luxury properties will have access to a brand-new sports bar and fitness centre for guests 18 years and older.
“We trust that our strategic approach to restoring our hotels and their amenities will help us surpass guest expectations in a hospitality landscape that is more competitive than ever. Today’s travellers look for more than pristine beaches and stunning views,” said Encarna Pinero, CEO of Grupo Piñero.
