The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, indicated that the courageous decision of the President of the Republic and the Cabinet of Tourism made the DR become a tourist film destination, since Hollywood studios were closed and came to the country to film in Las Terrenas and Samaná.
“The hotels are full, so we are going to continue with a strategy to promote Samaná as a film destination,” he said.
The head of Mitur made these statements while participating recently in the opening of the first phase of the Hacienda Samaná Bay residential tourism complex, a project that is already being very well received by visitors who come to the area for film productions.
The opening ceremony was also attended by Geanilda Vásquez, Minister of State without Portfolio of the Presidency, among other local and national personalities.
The developer INDEBAY SRL was represented by Luis Pareja, general manager of the project; Pedro Lloret, executive vice-president and Manuel Marciel, financial director, among others.
Hacienda Samaná Bay is the only hotel condominium concept overlooking the bay, built in the center of Santa Bárbara de Samaná. Due to its staggered structure, each unit allows residents and visitors to have a spectacular panoramic view.
