At the time, Calderón explained that “Live Aqua is one of our flagship brands recognized worldwide, that is why we wanted to bring it to the Dominican Republic since we are sure that it will become an architectural jewel north of the coasts of Uvero Alto and in a new experience capable of attracting the attention of more tourists with which we will contribute positively both to the national economy and to the development of the region and its inhabitants.”
In addition, he highlighted that the Dominican Republic “is the place with the most potential in the Caribbean for tourism growth.”

Also, and as part of the processes carried out by public and private institutions, the hotel carried out the vaccination process against Covid-19 for its staff to guarantee the health of its collaborators and visitors, and thus contribute to the reactivation of the economy in the tourism sector.
