On this Flashback Friday, it’s time to celebrate! In honor of our first anniversary, we’re turning back the clock to November 15, 2013, when Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa opened the doors, turned down the lights, and turned up the music for the first time—and anyone can tell you that the party hasn’t stopped since!
Breathless Punta Cana kicked off with six days of celebrations, each filled with appearances by famous musicians, political figures, and personalities from the Dominican Republic and beyond. From the awesome sets by DJ Rihannon to the resort’s inauguration by Dominican Republic President Danilo Medina, the grand opening of Breathless Punta Cana was one for the history books.
Here are some of our biggest highlights from the opening celebrations:
Our first guests were Antonio Barnes, a prominent travel agent who has already stayed with Breathless twice in the past year, and Hassan Bashir and his wife. Famed Spanish singer Diego El Cigala also stayed as a guest of the resort.
Attendees of the grand opening festivities included Spanish Tourism Minister José Manuel Soria and television personalities Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick.
Scott Disick and Kourtney Kardashian of “Keeping up with the Kardashians” help to ring in the new resort.
Music filled the air at Breathless, featuring diverse musical performances by Juan Luis Guerra and Maridalia Hernandez, both of Dominican Republic fame, Spanish musician Pitingo, and DJ Rihannon.
Our Entertainment Team organized daily activities to continue the fun, including a beachside horse show, performances by a Merengue trio, and pool parties filled with foam for extra excitement. We also invited fitness professionals to lead energetic exercise sessions with guests.
Since our grand opening, we have had countless amazing celebrations and wonderful moments with our guests and our team—and the party’s just getting started. Thank you to everyone who chose Breathless Punta Cana Resort & Spa as your vacation destination over the past year!
For those of you who plan to return or want to experience our resort for the first time, we’d love to extend one of our special offers to you. We hope to see you soon!
