Hard Rock Opens All-Inclusive Resort in Punta Cana
The Hard Rock has joined forces with Palace Resorts to transform the former Moon Palace on Macao Beach into the 1,800-room Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana, what the company is calling the "ultimate all-inclusive."
The 121-acre resort is set to officially open Saturday with a VIP party that includes a Hard Rock signature guitar smash and performances by The Wailers, The Gypsy Kings, and more.
With rates starting at $246 per person daily, guest will be able to dine at 15 restaurants, swim in 12 pools, golf at a Jack Nicklaus-designed course, and make use of a world-class spa and fitness center. The rate also includes unlimited premium alcohol served at 13 bars across the property--including four swim-up bars.
Suites at the Hard Rock Hotel include balconies, double Jacuzzi tubs, 300-thread count linens, wireless Internet, flat screen LCD TVs, a fully stocked mini bar, and a liquor dispenser that supplies whiskey, tequila, rum and vodka.
True to form, the resort also features a 48,000-square-foot casino and a nightclub dubbed Oro, and holds a collection of Hard Rock's authentic music memorabilia.
"Punta Cana is a world-class location and one of the Caribbean's top travel destinations, and Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana is a perfect complement to the region," says Dominican Republic Minister of Tourism Francisco Javier Garcia in a statement. "I am confident that Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Punta Cana will have a significant economic impact on our country's growing tourism."
