    Default Punta Arenas complex

    15 junio, 2015 Por M. Suárez

    Este martes 16 de junio se dará el primer picazo al proyecto turístico que el Grupo Puntacana junto a las familias Selman, Rizek y Read levantará en la zona de Los Corbanitos en Baní, provincia Peravia, complejo que integrará dos hoteles, y que desde ya se perfila como la iniciativa que empujará el desarrollo de la industria turística en la región Sur del país.

    El acto del arranque del complejo denominado PUNTARENA está pautado para las 4 de la tarde y estará encabezado por el presidente Danilo Medina, según ha sabido arecoa.com, y contará también con la presencia de los principales líderes turísticos de los sectores público y privado del país.

    El complejo que impulsan los accionistas de Spring Bay Development, representa según dijo en su momento el ministro de Turismo, Francisco Javier García, “el fuego que encenderá la pradera del desarrollo de la región Sur del país”. Mientras que el propio presidente Medina ha demostrado tener grandes expectativas con el proyecto turístico que Frank Rainieri promueve junto a las citadas familias empresariales del país.

    Con esta iniciativa, Rainieri, quien es considerado el padre del turismo en la región Este del país, ahora se lanza a desarrollar un destino hasta el momento dormido a la actividad turística, pero que no deja de tener gran potencial por sus atractivos naturales.

    Sin pretender desarrollar en la región Sur otro proyecto similar al de Punta Cana, el grupo turístico que preside Rainieri, sí quiere sacar provecho de una marca que encierra prestigio y que cautiva al turista del más alto nivel, es por ello que tal como ha adelantado este digital han optado por denominar al proyecto ‘PUNTARENA’, marca muy relacionada con la emblemática Punta Cana.

    El complejo integrará dos hoteles de 400 habitaciones y un área residencial, estando aún pendiente por definir si operará bajo la modalidad de ‘todo incluido’ o no. Por el potencial que encierra Baní para el desarrollo del turismo y por los accionistas que participan en esta apuesta, desde ya los principales actores de la industria la han catalogado como la punta de lanza del tan anhelado avance turístico del Sur.

    Thanks for the article. Mr. AE has been following this project, and is trying to convince me to move there/build a house there in the complex.

    Cool Observation from the Frontier: Punta Arena

    I find it ironic that these " well known " Dominican developers are promoting a site in Bani that already exist near Barahona. Punta Arena is a major geographic feature located on almost ALL maps of the Republica Dominicana ( H11 - Hammond International ) as being on the Larimar Coast just before you get to Paraiso on Highway 44. In local folklore it is known as the " Puerta de Paraiso " ( The Gateway to Paradise ) and was a major obstacle faced by Trujillo when he was building the coastal highway. It is where the Bararuco mountain range fronts up to the sea and you can be in 1000m deep water just offshore. Even today engineers are trying to find a better route for the new Barahona - Pedernales highway to eliminate the sharp downhill curves along that stretch of road.
