Significantly, the opening of the resort will be accompanied by two sustainability projects, intended to strengthen ecological development in the region, certain to attract the interest of diving enthusiasts.

 In collaboration with the non-profit organisation, Global Coralition, an underwater museum is to be built off the coast in the coming years. It’s hoped this will serve as a new attraction for tourists and divers, and create a marine habitat for sea creatures and corals. 

The ‘Reef Project’ with the Maguá Ecological Foundation will also be implemented, which aims to increase the biological diversity of the area through the development of ecosystems such as coral reefs and mangroves.

The properties can also be rented for a longer-term stay or bought as a second home in the Dominican Republic.
