CANA, DR— April 7, 2006 — Paradisus Palma Real – the fifth luxury all-inclusive
resort in Sol Meliá Hotels and Resorts’ five-star Paradisus brand
– celebrated its official opening on April 5 at an all-out extravaganza
held under star-filled Caribbean skies staged against the picturesque shores
of Punta Cana. The event also marked the opening night party for
the 2006 Dominican Travel Exchange (DATE).
With some of the leading tourism representatives from the Dominican Republic in attendance, along with travel professionals and industry press from the United States, the evening was a true showcase for the Paradisus Palma Real, beginning with cocktails served at The Plaza, where guests were captivated with special touches from Sol Meliá´s Soul & Magic sensorial effects, with Afro-Caribbean River Dancers, a Stomp performance, and a Top-40 live band, followed by a private dinner at Gabi Beach, the resort’s exclusive A La Carte Beach Lounge for its adults-only Royal Service and Family Concierge guests.

Situated on the Dominican Republic’s easternmost tip along 21 miles of white-sand beaches and amid soaring coconut palms, the resort pulled out all the stops to make the event a memorable one.
