After undergoing $10 million in renovations, the Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo, a seaside resort in Samana, in the Dominican Republic, has swung open its doors.
Located in one of the most exclusive enclaves of the Samana peninsula and neighboring the picturesque town Las Terrenas, the reconceptualization of Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo takes the sea as its inspiration with a new design that reflect it in a variety of ways. The renovation concept, Mirror of the Sea, can be seen through the colors, textures, and lighting, all of which mimic the surrounding marine environment. The entire complex itself takes the shape of charming coastal town, with characteristic architecture such as a central square that serves as the heart of the resort locale.
Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo is home to several restaurants; two pools with views of the ocean and featuring water beds and wet bars; a wellness spa with ocean-enthused treatments; a children’s water park; and a theater for conventions and events.
Guests will also be privy to Bahia Principe’s new digitized features across several areas such a pre-check in, monitoring at the Kids Club, reservations for activities, restaurant reservations, express check-out, and more.
Incidentally, the hotel company has a total of four resorts in Samana.
