("Cap Cana") and AM Resorts, an award-winning provider of resort sales, marketing and brand management services, today announced the opening of the Golden Bear Lodge & Spa at Cap Cana luxury golf resort development. The announcement represents the latest milestone in Cap Cana's present growth strategy of entering into and maintaining arrangements with leading luxury hotel operators, experienced private developers and world-renowned strategic business partners.

"We are excited to announce the formal opening of the first Nicklaus-brand Golden Bear Lodge, and welcome the addition of AM Resorts to our growing list of best-of-breed resort industry operators," said Ricardo Hazoury, Cap Cana's Chairman and President.
