The Viva Wyndham Resorts chain announced that it will invest close to US$60 million in the first stage of the construction of a hotel in a new tourist development zone in Miches, in eastern Dominican Republic.
The project will have 750 rooms, will be ready by 2023 and will generate some 500 direct jobs and 1,500 indirect jobs, according to the information provided during the groundbreaking ceremony, in which President Luis Abinader participated.
Last March, the Dominican government announced that the Miches area will receive an investment of more than US$1 billion to build several hotels and residences in the coming years.
Viva is a Dominican company that operates hotels in several destinations in the Dominican Republic, Mexico and the Bahamas, under the brand name of US-based Wyndham Hotels & Resorts, the largest hotel franchise company in the world.
Tourism is one of the main contributors to the economy of the Dominican Republic, which continues to bet on this segment to achieve economic recovery after the debacle caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the country.
