Michès Playa Esmeralda in the Dominican Republic: One Resort, Four Boutique Villas

Club Med Michès Playa Esmeralda is scheduled to open in December 2019 in Miches, a preserved paradise located on the northeast coast of the Dominican Republic. This will be ClubMed’s first full Exclusive Collection resort to open in the Americas and will be the very first operating resort in the soon-to-be-developed region.

Miches is a pristine, natural haven in a lush Dominican palm grove. It is situated about an hour from the Punta Cana International Airport, easily accessible via a scenic highway with captivating mountain views. This hidden paradise features miles of untouched tranquil coastlines with unique natural gems.

Local wonders provide various opportunities for guests to discover new breathtaking sights and activities, such as: Laguna Limón, a nature reserve with stunning waterfalls; Samaná Bay, a bay featuring protected islands with native flora, wildlife, and a known site for humpback whale watching;and Montaña Redonda, a “rounded mountain” with 360-degree panoramic views of the surrounding flourishing landscape, known for its photo-famous swing.

Emerald Jungle

Close your eyes and picture yourself in a calm oasis – what do you hear? The rustling leaves from the local palms? The sounds of the natural pool? Or perhaps the “ohms” from the treetop yoga class? Picture yourself here: tucked away deep into the Dominican groves in an adults-exclusive Zen Oasis steps away from the spa.

Imagine an intimate getaway in a haven where from the moment you walk into your room, you see an endless hue of blue. From your own private pool to a personal outdoor shower just steps away from the unspoiled beach, you and your loved one will have the perfect hideaway. Unwind in your oceanfront daybed with a book in one hand and a cocktail in the other. Honeymooners beware: you may never want to leave.
