As part of the expansion of the Palace Resorts Group in the Dominican Republic, the construction of the Moon Palace Punta Cana hotel, which is expected to be ready by the end of 2024, has resumed with great dynamism.
In November 2018, the first construction groundbreaking took place and it was projected to be ready in 2021, however many setbacks have happened since then, such as at first the opposition of business-hotel groups (an agreement was reached and the relevant permits were granted) and then the Covid-19 pandemic.
After overcoming the impasses, construction continues to move forward and the company, Constructora Grama, published on its official Instagram account photos showing how the work is going, which will have more than 2,000 rooms spread over 18 stories high, where only 6% of the total land of the property will be occupied.
Hoteliers from the East consulted by this digital arecoa.com attested that the project is already a reality and that with its support of rooms and jobs it will help the economy of the area and the tourism sector.
Meanwhile, the official website of the hotel brand states that “Moon Palace will soon arrive at a new destination. We are very happy to announce that from the end of 2024 you will be able to explore the warm beaches of the Dominican Republic with all the comfort and All Inclusive for endless fun”.
The vertical construction project will have the same distance from building to building, that is, a height of 77 meters or 18 stories, and access to the beach will be through stilt houses in the mangrove swamp, allowing only golf carts and pedestrians to circulate.
According to the initial specifications, 66% of the rooms will have ocean views and 44% will overlook the golf course. It also includes housing for its employees, which will total some 4,000, and 10% of the project’s investment will be earmarked for employee housing.
