“We Cherry-Picked The Best Location In The D.R.”

Sister properties share a powdery beach in Cap Cana

Playa Hotels and Resorts had its pick of locations as to where to build its newest Hyatt Ziva/Hyatt Zilara combo-resort, and the fact that they were willing to spend months grooming the land they chose for construction speaks volumes about the location’s desirability.

Set on the Dominican Republic's white-sand beaches of Juanillo Beach in the gated community of Cap Cana, an exclusive real estate and hotel tourist destination just south of Punta Cana, the location for the soon-to-open Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana and Hyatt Zilara Cap Capa is an oasis in a tropical paradise -- not to mention that it's only 15 minutes away from PUJ, as well as a short distance from Sanctuary Cap Cana, another Playa property.

"It took the team months just to clear the land before we could even do anything. It was not a small feat,”says Rose Cosentino, Vice President, Sales – Canada with Playa. "We were drawn to the fact that Cap Cana is a more private and luxurious destination than the general Punta Cana area."

Cap Cana's upscale flair makes it the "Beverly Hills" of the Dominican Republic, says Cosentino. 

"We wanted to have the terrain that could accommodate a project of this size and nature, as well as have the right landscape. This space checked all the boxes for us," she adds.

And beach lovers are sure to appreciate the three kilometres of spectacular white sand beaches and a protected harbour marina.

"The sand is like icing sugar. It's like powder – white and super fine. The water is crystal clear and the beach is very long, but it's also wide. The way we set back the resort, there's lot of beach space for beach lovers," says Cosentino.

While the resort grounds offer plenty of activities and entertainment for guests – including daily fitness classes, dance lessons, a comprehensive fitness centre, themed parties, outdoor sports, pool games for all ages and more --  the off-property recreation choices are equally enticing. 

The resort is minutes away from a championship golf course, a state-of-the-art marina, deep sea fishing, eco-parks, adventure excursions, and other family-friendly attractions. There are also concierge services on both the Ziva and Zilara side to assist with planning.
