The “Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda” in the Dominican Republic is the first 5-trident luxury establishment in the Club Med Exclusive Collection. The site occupies 38 hectares of land on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean in the pristine and lush region of Michès, in the northeast of the country, one hour from the Punta Cana airport.
The concept signed D.L.2.A develops the idea of an “eco-chic” hotel in the heart of a wild and preserved coconut grove. The village is a set of 4 "accommodation districts" and common areas (reception, restaurants, bar, shops) all topped with roofs in the shape of boat hulls, a nod to the fishing village of Michès, the together forming a real sculpture. Two swimming pools including a 75 m swimming lane extend towards the sea.
To offer a special experience, these four villages, totaling 335 keys, have their own identity, their own architecture and each a different name.
