The new-build Zemi Miches All-Inclusive Resort will be the first all-inclusive Curio Collection by Hilton property in the Dominican Republic when it opens in 2024.
Hilton announced in early May 2023 that it had signed an agreement with the resort’s owner, Zemi Hotels & Resorts, S.R.L., to manage the resort, which will be located north of Punta Cana in the coastal town of Miches, approximately 60 miles from Punta Cana International Airport.
Sitting on a half-mile stretch of Esmeralda Beach, the resort will offer 502 guestrooms spread across six four-storey buildings and 18 free-standing beach bungalows. Guestrooms include 123 ground-level, swim-up rooms with individual plunge pools that connect via a winding pool allowing guests to swim to other areas of the resort.
Drawing inspiration from the coast’s landforms, the hotel will feature a minimalist design with natural tones and textures. The four-storey buildings will blend with the environment. And the design plan incorporates neutral wood and stonework, lush greenery, soft interior shades, and boho-chic elegance from furnishings to artistic structures and decor.
Onsite amenities at Zemi Miches will include a night club, kids’ club, and retail shops. Its nine food and drink options will range from restaurants serving Asian, Taino, Italian and seafood cuisines to an all-day buffet, lobby bar, sports bar and more.
The resort will meet the health and wellness needs of guests with a sprawling pool complex with water park, a state-of-the-art fitness center and juice bar, and a dedicated spa building with ten treatment rooms, a beauty salon, an indoor pool, sauna, jacuzzi, and an outdoor terrace for yoga and meditation.
Zemi Miches will also feature 15,000 square feet of flexible indoor and outdoor meeting and event space.
“The signing of Zemi Miches All-Inclusive Resort, Curio Collection by Hilton is a momentous addition to our robust pipeline in the broader Caribbean, where we have nearly 30 Hilton properties operating across the region and approximately 30 hotels in development,” said Pablo Maturana, vice-president, Development, Caribbean and Latin America, Hilton. “As we work to double our Caribbean portfolio and nearly triple our presence in the Dominican Republic, we are proud to work alongside visionary owners who share our values and support responsible tourism to incredible destinations like Miches.”
