The President Luis Abinader and the Minister of Tourism David Collado will visit Las Terrenas, Samaná this Friday to reopen the Hotel Bahia Principe Grand El Portillo.

After the ribbon cutting and speeches by the President and the Minister of Tourism, a tour of the renovated facilities began under the common thread of the sea, an element that has inspired the new design of the establishment. In this way, each of the common areas transmits to the guests the colors and light of the marine environment that surrounds them, thus reinforcing the link with their surroundings.
Before concluding the visit, they were presented with the Comprehensive Coastal Management Plan, a project that responds to the company's corporate responsibility and sustainability strategy, and which has five programs within which actions are carried out aimed at improving the state of the beaches, achieve better resource management, promote biodiversity conservation, enhance sustainable landscape management, and promote environmental awareness and education.
In addition to the presentation of the Plan, the focus has been on the projects that are being developed in the Samaná area, as well as on the projects pending to start in the short term.
The hotel complex was closed for several months due to the COVID-19 pandemic, time that was used to make a reform in its facilities.
