The Fishing Lodge Cap Cana will begin operations this coming month of October in Punta Cana, one of the Caribbean’s most important tourism destinations. The hotel will operate under the U.S. brand Salamander Hotels & Resort and will feature 302 spacious villas overlooking the luxury resort’s marina.
The Fishing Lodge Cap Cana, in its first construction phase, will include two restaurants, two bars and boutiques in the complex’s main street and square.
“The Dominican Republic is a great destination for groups and meetings,” said Prem Devadas, president of Salamander Hotels & Resorts.
Guests will enjoy all the facilities provided by the Cap Cana resort, including access to the exclusive Punta Espada Golf Club, designed by world-renowned golfer Jack Nicklaus.
“The Dominican Republic is a different sort of tourism destination, which has many Mediterranean-style beachfront facilities. The country offers centrally located facilities and the possibility of experiencing many luxury resorts,” said Sheila C. Johnson, founder and CEO of Salamander Hotels & Resorts.
The second property of the “Corporacion Hotelera del Mar,” owner of the Fishing Lodge, is the Ocean Club Cap Cana. This new facility is scheduled to open in 2012 as a 92-room boutique hotel, and will be built overlooking the Cap Cana Marina.
Salamander Hotels & Resorts is headquartered in Middleburg, Virginia. The corporation manages the Innisbrook complex, in Tampa, Florida, home of “Transitions Championship” and the “LPGA Tour Legends Open Championship.” It also manages the Woodlands Inn in Charleston, South Carolina, and the Salamander Resort & Spa in Middleburg, Virginia, an equestrian theme resort, located outside Washington, D.C.
