This was stated by Daniel Hernández, Regional Vice President of Operations for AMResorts in the Dominican Republic, who also said that the idea is to offer the brand’s strategic allies and sponsors a product that suits golf, unlimited luxury, beach and sun.
“This is a project that we have thought about for a long time, we announced it a year ago during our opening of the AMResorts office in Blue Mall Santo Domingo and now the time has come to make it a reality.”
The sporting event, exclusively for allies and strategic sponsors of the hotel chain, will be held on Saturday, October 12 at the Punta Espada Golf Club within Cap Cana, very near the Secrets Cap Cana hotel. “We will celebrate it at the renowned Punta Espada golf course, next to our Secrets Cap Cana Hotel with unlimited luxury, where we hope players stay with their respective partners.
