Vortex International to Bring Aquatic Play to New Circle by Meliá Resort


Circle at Paradisus Palma Real in Punta Cana

Vortex Aquatic Structures International, a world leader in the aquatic play industry, is pleased to announce it is partnering with Meliá Hotels International to provide water park play structures for the chain’s new member-only destination in Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic.

Meliá Hotels International entrusted the design of its water park to renowned architect and hotel amenity concept designer Alvaro Sans. Together, they selected Vortex International to provide the structural elements, as they felt its sophisticated, elegant designs and attention to imaginative, interactive aquatic play contributed to creating a value-added experience for guests.

The water park area, Aquafun park Blast, will consist of a total of four pools and feature three Vortex Elevations™ multi-level structures of different sizes, as well as four standalone water slides and a variety of ground-level Poolplay™ elements. The configuration provides high immersive play value, to ensure families with children of all ages and abilities have fun together and create lasting memories of their stay.

As William Bernal, Director of Works and Maintenance of America for Meliá Hotels International explained, “We are convinced that the collaboration between Vortex and Meliá in the development of the water park at our hotel will enrich the experience of our clients by bringing them the joy of playing with water and creating memorable experiences for the whole family with innovative, sustainable, and recreational water features.”

“We share Meliá Hotels International’s commitment to providing rich and unique customer experiences. We’re delighted to develop the aquatic play installations for Circle at Paradisus Palma Real and help make the resort a top destination for families,” added Stephen Hamelin, President of Vortex International.

Scheduled to greet its first guests later this year, Circle at Paradisus Palma Real is part of the exclusive Circle by Meliá resort collection, which promises a new level of customization and privileges to create unforgettable personalized vacation experiences for its member families.
