Desires Hotels Selected to Provide Hotel Services for The Cliffs Ocean Resort
Set To Open in 2011 on the North Coast of the Dominican Republic

New York, NY – January 25, 2010 - Miami Based, Desires Hotels announces the latest international addition to their modern boutique collection, The Cliffs Ocean Resort, which is situated between Puerto Plata and Samana along the stunning north coast of the Dominican Republic. The project is the first in the Dominican Republic to be LEED certified and is set to open Summer 2011. Room amenities at the eco-chic luxurious resort include large living areas and private terraces with unmatched views to the ocean and the mountains while being completely surrounded by a lush tropical landscape. 
The Cliffs Ocean Resort’s initial 102 rooms mark the first phase of development in which guests will enjoy the resort’s close proximity to great golf at the Robert Trent Jones Sr. designed Playa Grande Golf Course which has been called the “Pebble Beach of the Caribbean.” In an area that sees few tourists, the resort is only five minutes from crystal clear turquoise water with white powder sand beaches featuring water sports, fishing, surfing, and snorkeling. The area along the north coast of Dominican Republic is a beach lover’s dream with 75 miles of pristine white-sand beaches that were named to Conde Nast Traveler’s “Top 10 Beaches in the World.” Nature enthusiasts will also enjoy short exploration trails to tropical waterfalls, lagoons, and mangroves.
Built on 25 acres of ocean-side property, The Cliffs Ocean Resort will include a luxury spa featuring a wide array of Asian treatments that soothe the mind, body, and soul. For those wanting to relax poolside, there will be two salt-water infinity pools overlooking the Caribbean Sea along with a Beach Club that offers another form of respite in the bar and cigar lounge — the club also consists of a food and beverage outlet and area for teenagers. The resort has 24-hour room service, a Fitness Center, helipad, and commercial shopping area. For those seeking a more active holiday there is golf practice facility, sports center with tennis courts, and equestrian center. “Desires Hotels International is excited to bring this property into the collection,” says Gary L. Sims Executive VP/Partner of Desires Hotels International, “It’s unique location and tremendous amenities for guests make The Cliffs Ocean Resort an outstanding Caribbean destination.”
The Cliffs Ocean Resort is only 40 miles from Puerto Plata International Airport which has daily international flights to and from the United States. For information please visit: or call 809-334-5064.
