Last year the event was held at the Atlantis Resort in the Bahamas. This year, the event will once more bring expert panels to discuss key issues relevant to today's Caribbean hotel market and will provide a range of opportunities for investors in the Caribbean.
Kevin Pritchard coming for windsurfing classic
Triple world windsurfing champion Kevin Pritchard is coming for this year's Pablito Guzman Cabarete Classic. The event will take place from 17-21 July at Cabarete beach. Pritchard will be competing in slalom and long-distance races. He will also lead a free slalom and racing clinic on 18 July open to all competitors and non-competitors.
The Cabarete Classic will take place on Cabarete Beach in the town center. The Cabarete Classic is a four-day long event that includes racing and freestyle categories for competitors of all ages and abilities.
The categories are: Mini-Juniors, Juniors, Long Distance Race (windsurfing and kitesurfing), Slalom in Sport, Open and kitesurfing classes, Women's Slalom, a Business Class (for local business owners) and a Freestyle competition.
A unique one-day long distance event, beginning in La Hermita and ending in Cabarete, is designed for top racers from around the world.
Justin Bieber Dominican concert cancelled
While Justin Bieber had published on his website that he would be in Santo Domingo for a concert on 22 October, now it seems the concert has been cancelled. On the tour dates, a different location for the 22 October concert has not yet been posted. News reports are that there are differences concerning the venue chosen for the event, the Quisqueya Ball Park. Santo Domingo would have been the second stop on the teen idol's Latin American tour this fall, after a first concert in San Juan Puerto Rico.
Puntacana's Westin Hotels
Work is progressing on the Westin Hotels & Resorts' new Westin Puntacana, scheduled for opening on 20 December 2013. The hotel will have 204 hotel rooms with a view of Playa Blanca. Tourists arriving at the destination can enjoy kite surfing at Playa Blanca.
Guests will have access to play rounds of golf at La Cana and Corales golf courses within the Puntacana Resort & Hotels complex. The hotel is also only 10 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport. Westin is including its Westin Workout and access to the Six Senses Spa among the onsite attractions. Tourists staying at the hotel will be invited to visit the Puntacana Ecological Reserve and other Puntacana Group coastal and environmental programs. These include a catamaran excursion with snorkeling to get to know coral reef and fishing protection programs, and a PADI diving certificate in coral reef restoration. There are also sea-friendly fishing trips and bird watching excursions.
Tourists will also be assisted to play rounds of golf at the eight other courses in the Punta Cana area, and there are four more half-an-hour away in La Romana.
The Westin will be a sister hotel to the Four Points by Sheraton already in operation in Punta Cana Village, a two-minute drive from the Punta Cana International Airport. PUJ receives 62% of all arrivals to the Dominican Republic.
Water Park at the Memories Splash in Punta Cana
New to the Caribbean, Blue Diamond Hotels & Resorts plans to open the Memories Splash and Royalton Punta Cana on the grounds of the former Ahmsa Grand Paradise Bavaro Resort in November 2013.
The Ahmsa hotel closed on 1 May and is scheduled to reopen on 9 November 2013 with major upgrades to the rooms. The beach-fronting Royalton (1,005 rooms) will cater to adults and families and Memories Splash (545 rooms) is focusing on families, with the addition of a 5,000-square meter water park.
Todd Kurlik, vice president sales & marketing for Blue Diamond, announced recently that they are installing the water park because market research showed that they are popular with families and the company found that the Caribbean lagged behind in this type of attraction.
Blue Diamond is an affiliate of SunWing, the Canadian airline and tour operator. Blue Diamond has hotels in Mexico, Cuba, Jamaica and Dominican Republic.
