PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 2, 2016) — President of AMResorts® an Apple Leisure Group® subsidiary, announced today the opening of its newest resort, Now Onyx Punta Cana, the brand’s third in the highly sought-after destination of the Dominican Republic.

Located on the pristine beaches of Uvero Alto, the 502-suite, family-friendly resort provides guests with a breathtaking landscape, luxuriously appointed accommodations and a worry-free vacation experience complete with the brand’s signature Unlimited-Luxury® offering. With this exclusive vacation concept, where everything is included, guests can savor limitless access to gourmet dining and premium spirits, 24-hour room and concierge service, a daily refreshed mini-bar and a variety of day and night entertainment options.

“The Dominican Republic continues to stand out in Caribbean travel, and the island is expected to welcome six million visitors by the end of this year*,” said Gonzalo del Peòn, President of AMResorts. “The strength of the Dominican Republic tourism market presented an ideal scenario to not only expand our footprint in the region, but also increase our family-friendly offering in an idyllic destination where guests can relax, be entertained and enjoy a memorable vacation.”

Now Onyx Punta Cana offers a host of lively activities and entertainment for all to enjoy. Take in the sunshine at one of the resort’s five shimmering pools, including an infinity pool, children’s pool and salt water pool.

While the kids are at play, adults can enjoy some along time in the Preferred Club’s adults-only section.

Additionally, for guests looking to enjoy some alone time while the kids are at play, the resort’s Preferred Club offers a relaxing adults-only section. The restaurant Mercure is also an option exclusively for adults.

Beyond the nine restaurants and ten bars at Now Onyx Punta Cana, guests can take advantage of the offerings at neighboring AMResorts properties with the exclusive Sip, Savor & See program. With this program, guests are invited to enjoy additional family-friendly dining options at nearby Dreams and Now Resorts & Spas.
