Viva Wyndham Resorts has announced the groundbreaking of a new 750-room hotel in Miches, Dominican Republic, in an event that was attended by the country’s President Luis Abinader.

The Viva Wyndham Miches Resort will be the first hotel to settle in the Miches area, following a $60 million investment to begin its first stage of construction. The resort will include a 486-room family hotel, scheduled for completion in 2023, followed by a second 264-room development aimed at the adult market, set to be constructed at a later date.

“For Viva Wyndham, this resort marks a new period of expansion in the tourism of our country and the region. It adds us to the development of Miches and opens the door to later participating in the Pedernales tourism project, as well as the international sector, in Jamaica,” said Ettore Colussi, president, Viva Wyndham Resorts, in a press release statement. “Because we believe in the country and we trust the government that runs it, we are here today starting the first of the two hotels to be built in this tourist complex.”

The first stage of the Viva Wyndham Miches Resort will consist of three buildings, a 9,182-sf pool area, outdoor spaces, a commercial-use building, a nightclub, gym, amphitheater with capacity for 1,100 people, à la carte restaurants and buffet, three bars and a café and ice cream parlor, as well as a space dedicated to members of the Viva Club.
