Spotlight on Bahia Principe

Bahia Principe is inviting disco enthusiasts to enjoy the sounds of silence.

Sal Buccellato of Bahia Principe Hotels & Resorts’ Toronto office told a Thursday Toronto gathering that the company’s adults-only properties in the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Jamaica now offer “silent discos,” with those who want to demonstrate their dance moves to music, but don’t want to hear “thumping” music able to don headphones, select their music and dance to music no one else nearby will hear.

Others can “stand there and watch everybody” dancing silently, he said.

Buccellato also said that Bahia Principe’s Ambar resort in Punta Cana has seen “extensive renovations” that included the redoing of all guest units and the addition of swim-up suites.

Three a la carte restaurants – one of which is French and another of which is Italian – have been revamped. “We’re spicing up the cuisine.”

A sports bar has also been added, which Buccellato said will be welcomed by hockey fans, who can watch games on the numerous TVs.

Buccellato said guests will also find a “state-of-the art” gymnasium.

The evening was also told that Grand Bahia Principe’s Aquamarine resort in Punta Cana is great for “active clients who want an adults-only vacation.”

Guests were told that Bahia Principe properties have numerous entertainment choices.

Meanwhile, Philip Rose of the Jamaica Tourist Board praised Bahia Principe’s Jamaica presence.

Bahia Principe “has been one of our strongest long-standing partners,” he said.

Bahia Principe has a resort in Jamaica’s Runaway Bay area.

Rose praised Bahia Principe as being “very active and always willing to join forces” with him and his colleagues on campaigns promoting Jamaica.
