Canabay Hotels opens its first hotel, Coral House.
The day arrived and finally our first hotel, Coral House, opened its doors just a few days ago.
The road has been bumpy, and we keep working hard everyday to make sure our guests fully enjoy our new project.
The first comments about the concept and the product have been very encouraging. We are a disruptive hotel company in a very commoditized environment. While 99 por ciento of the inventory in Punta Cana is within the All Inclusive 5 stars resorts segment, we bet for a different type of hospitality: we are NOT and All Inclusive hotel company, we do offer apartments/suites instead of the usual room/junior suite, and to top it off, we do offer our clients the flexibility to pick and choose how they would like to stay with us (all inclusive, bed and breakfast or half board).
This is not an Air BnB property. This is a fully serviced hotel, with amenities you might expect from any hotel; from room service to bell boys upon arrival. Main difference is the size of your room, we have 1 and 2 bedroom suites (apartments) fully furnished, with a full kitchen including a washer and a dryer (very useful).
As for food and beverage outlets, everything has been planned accordingly. We do not only offer bars, restaurants or room service, but go the extra mile offering a 24hr convenience store and a free grocery shopping service directly to your suite (how cool is that?).
We aim for that type of clients that look above and beyond AI properties when booking their holidays. Clients that would like to enjoy the destination in a different way, with the freedom to move around without feeling "guilty" when missing the strict rules of an all inclusive hotel. We do not want to steal market-share away from our competitors but to create a new demand for the destination.
Another important difference is that our first hotel is a 4* hotel, let me spell this for you in case you think i made a mistake: A FOUR STAR HOTEL. It takes a lot of guts these days to say that you build, run or manage a four star property. What is wrong with that? Nothing wrong with a brand new, out of the box, new concept, four star hotel. Prices are adjusted as well to that star ratimg. Another important point to differentiate ourselves from our competitors.
We are already working on our next hotel, Ocean House, and upgraded and improved version of Coral House. Ocean House will open its doors on Jan 15th 2020. It will be a 400 studio, 1 & 2 bedroom suites, with many new amenities such as top notch swim ups, more restaurants and facilities. This will allow us as well to implement our "Stay at One plat at...." policy, another great option for our valued guests.
For Canabay Hotels the future looks more and more promising. We have a great team of professionals that are a key factor to our success.
Whenever you look these days for something different, think of us, and remember......Canabay Hotels, Stay with Us, Feel at Home.
Happy Holidays. All the Best for 2019
