SANTO DOMINGO, DR (December 17, 2014) — While the U.S. was busy with Thanksgiving, Occidental Vacation Club (OVC) was putting the final touches on fresh new renovations to its exclusive First Club Lounge. Grand re-opening festivities took place earlier this month —just in time for holiday travelers to enjoy.
With $1.4 million in renovations being poured into the spectacular resort, the First Club Lounge is now modernized, colorful and exceptionally comfortable. The refurbishments have expanded both the reception and waiting area, where First Club Members arrive to enjoy a welcome beverage and private, attentive First Club Concierge check-in services.
Always serving premium beverages, the bar area is now much larger than previously with the addition of a generous seating area with tables to enjoy a quiet, quick breakfast or snack, away from the hustle and bustle of the plentiful and busy buffet. First Club Members will now delight in the recent addition of a homey living room-style area complete with big screen TV and comfortable couches.
Just outside the expansive picture windows with views of the blue Caribbean First Club members can relax in a Jacuzzi®, hanging chairs, poolside beds and an outdoor lounge.
“It’s completely new, and it reflects exactly what the First Club is: comfort, relaxation, service and fun,” said Luis Namnum, President of Occidental Vacation Club (OVC). “The new First Club area is a terrific place to hangout, listen to music, and meet up with new and old friends over a tropical cocktail or two.”
OVC, a division of Occidental Hotels and Resorts (Madrid) includes resorts in Aruba, Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, Haiti, Colombia and Mexico. With nearly 25,000 members and 23 properties, the organization is heralded for being one of the first to bring all-inclusive resorts into the timeshare arena.
“We are proud of the special vacation experiences we create for our First Club members through exceptional features and amenities such as this totally reimagined First Club Lounge,” continued Namnum. “It’s a great feature for our members. We look at the First Club as a haven where members can savor premium liquors, wines and delicious snacks, enjoy soft music from the entertainment center, or share a conversation with friends.”
Namnum says that other OVC resorts will see changes as well, with a new Beach Club, Infinity Pool and First Club enhancements at Allegro Playacar and plans for renovations at Grand Punta Cana’s Royal Club as well. “Our goal is to bring all of our properties to higher standards, providing our members with exceptional amenities and benefits,” Namnum said.
