Dominican Republic: Melia has unveiled its $30 million project to turn the Melia Caribe Tropical resort into two distinct all-inclusive beach hotels.

The company has officially opened the new adults-only Melia Punta Cana Beach Resort and the family-friendly Melia Caribe Beach Resort, both set on Punta Cana's famous Bavaro Beach, home to the most popular tourist destination in the Dominican Republic.

The 538-room hotel will include five new dining concepts, including the signature Mediterranean-inspired Mosaico.

The adults-only Melia Punta Cana will also include an exclusive pool, restaurant, VIP check-in lounge and premium beverages and other amenities.

Meanwhile, the family-friendly Melia Caribe Beach Resort includes 609 rooms, including 154 LEVEL suites, along with 132 "beachside family rooms" and 332 premium beachside and deluxe rooms.

Dining concepts range from the all-day eatery Riviera to the Japanese-style Hokkaido.

The Melia Caribe will debut two more restaurants, Tartufo and Bazaar, later this year, according to a statement from the company.

The growth continues to solidify Melia's position in the Dominican Republic - the company's second-biggest market in the Caribbean, after Cuba.
