Kimpton’s Caribbean Debut: A New Gem in the Dominican Republic

Marking the Kimpton brand’s first venture into the heart of the Caribbean, Kimpton Las Mercedes is set to open its doors in the Summer of 2024. Located in the Dominican Republic, this exquisite hotel will be housed in a meticulously preserved 16th-century structure, under the visionary guidance of award-winning architect Rafael Moneo. Nestled in Santo Domingo’s Colonial City, a neighborhood rich in history and culture, the design of the hotel seamlessly blends the old with the new, reflecting the vibrant spirit of a city that has evolved into a bustling cultural hub.

Local artisans have been commissioned to infuse the 130 guest rooms, including eight luxurious rooftop suites, with vibrant design elements that echo the lively essence of Santo Domingo. A 16th-century structure to house 130 rooms and suites, the hotel promises a unique blend of historical charm and modern luxury.

Guests can look forward to a sensory culinary journey, beginning with Northern Italian cuisine at the signature restaurant, Zola, and continuing at El Patio, a secluded courtyard garden bar and lounge offering snacks and drinks under preserved oak and mango trees. A standout feature of the hotel is the rum and cigar lounge, built around a 500-year-old well uncovered and restored during the building’s transformation. This lounge will offer guests a taste of local specialties in a setting that beautifully marries the old with the new.

Kimpton’s renowned perks will be in full swing, including morning coffee and tea service, evening social hour, the ‘Forgot It? We’ve Got It!’ program, in-room yoga mats, and pet-friendly policies. Santo Domingo, one of the Caribbean’s oldest cities and a UNESCO World Heritage site, offers a treasure trove of experiences for visitors. The city’s cobblestone streets are lined with age-old architecture, buzzing local art galleries, and vibrant nightlife. Beyond the city, hidden waterfalls and the pristine white sands of Caribbean beaches await exploration.
