Meliá to invest US$ 400 million in hotels in Dominican Republic

Meliá Hotels International announced an investment of US$400 million over two years and the creation of some 3,500 jobs in the Dominican Republic as part of its expansion in the Caribbean country.

The announcement was made at a ceremony held at the Presidential Palace in Santo Domingo, where President Luis Abinader presented the highest award to the founder of Meliá Hotels International, Gabriel Escarrer Juliá, for his contribution to the development of the tourism industry.

In his speech, the Spanish hotelier highlighted the good management of the COVID-19 pandemic by the Government of the Dominican Republic and the way in which it has reactivated tourism, which this April will reach the highest level in the country, even higher than that recorded in the same month of years prior to the pandemic.

Meliá Hotels International currently has seven hotels in the Dominican Republic, employing some 2,500 people.
