Blue Diamond Resorts, together with the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, have announced the opening of the first Planet Hollywood Beach Resort that will debut in late 2024 in Puerto Plata.
The hotel management company will be one of the main players in the industry as part of the Punta Bergantín relaunch project.
“Following the success of our all-inclusive models in Cancun and Costa Rica, we are proud to continue taking this lifestyle iconic brand to new trendy destinations of high relevance in our property portfolio” said Jordi Pelfort, president, hotels and resorts of Sunwing Travel Group, in a release on Friday (Jan. 20). "A Planet Hollywood Beach Resort in Puerto Plata will add great value to Dominican tourism and will be perfectly aligned with the purpose of hotel, real estate, innovation and especially cinematographic development that this great project pursues."
The news was shared at FITUR 2023, a global meeting for tourism professionals and trade fair for inbound and outbound markets in Latin America.
Located in the northern part of the country, the Punta Bergantín region will offer resorts, eco-tourism, an 18-hole golf course, a residential development, shopping and even a movie studio.
This latest concept is aligned to the lifestyle concept that Blue Diamond Resorts offers in their Planet Hollywood Beach Resorts in Cancun and Costa Rica.

This new property will feature the signature all-inclusive Vacation Like A Star experience and will bring authentic Hollywood memorabilia to the Bergantín Beach to delight guests of all ages.
It promises a modern accommodations to themed restaurants and bars, sparkling pools, day and night entertainment, relaxing treatments at PH Spa and state-of-the-art fitness facilities at PUMPED.
The project is part of a tourism plan that will generate over 83,000 jobs in the region and will contribute new real estate developments such as hotels and resorts, housing units, and even a movie studio that will reinforce the essence of Planet Hollywood, Blue Diamond said.
