Viva Wyndham's new V Collection
Viva Wyndham Resorts has introduced the brand V Collection with the opening of the V Samana, an all-inclusive resort for adults located in Bahia de Coson, Las Terrenas, Samana. Viva Wyndham Resorts president Ettore Colussi said: "This will be a unique and exciting alternative for active travelers to the region looking for authenticity. These travelers don't just pick a destination to 'go and stay.' They seek opportunities to 'be and experience,' in beautiful settings amid modern comfort."
V Samana has 144 rooms with sea or garden view and 48 "vibe" rooms with sea view and private plunge pools.
The new resort will be the first in its category to combine hip elegance and a relaxed, yet active and modern vibrant ambiance in an all-inclusive setting.
Guests at V Samana will be able to choose from a full selection of "active entertainment" options, including yoga and pilates classes, cocktail and cooking classes, windsurfing, and, of course, dancing and partying to the sounds of guest DJs at the resort's beachside and hip cocktail bars, in addition to the excursion desk for day and nighttime activities.
