Falcons Resort

It may not be DisneyWorld, but the Dominican Republic in March will see a $350 million “entertainment-based resort complex” under a new joint venture between Meliá Hotels International and Falcon’s Beyond.

The first property in the Falcon’s Resorts by Meliá brand, the Falcon’s Resort by Meliá All Suites Punta Cana will be a $350 million entertainment destination that includes two existing Meliá properties, Paradisus Grand Cana and The Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real, with a combined total of 622 rooms, plus Katmandu Park Punta Cana, “the first world-class theme park in the Caribbean.”

It features several patented ride technologies, interactive storytelling, and “captivating mega-park-level attractions,” plus entertainment venues, restaurants and shopping.

The complex will be the first under the joint venture, which plans to create a “resortainment hospitality experience that will seamlessly blend premium resort amenities with extraordinary entertainment experiences”in “prime leisure markets across the globe,” the company said.

The park features attractions like Voyage of the Fathom Wanderer, a suspended theater, and Legend of the Desirata, a 4D dark ride, as well as themed dining venues, an outdoor ropes course, indoor climbing courses, and a 36-hole mini golf course. The centerpiece, the Wheel of Infinite Wonder, is a themed carousel with figures inspired by the characters from The Hidden Realms, a complimentary fan loyalty and online game platform.

Tickets to the park start at $120 per adult and $85 per child.

The first Punta Cana theme park is in Mallorca, Spain; plans are in the works to build more in Tenerife, Canary Islands, and Mexico.
