Nobu Hospitality to add hotels in Punta Cana, Orlando

Nobu Hospitality, in partnership with RCD Hotels, will develop two new hotels and residences in Punta Cana, on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic, and Orlando.

The introduction of these two destinations marks the fifth collaboration between Nobu Hospitality and RCD Hotels. The partnership commenced back in 2016 with the opening of Nobu Hotel Miami Beach and has continued to flourish over the years with the introduction of Nobu Hotel Los Cabos in 2019, Nobu Hotel Chicago in 2020, and the imminent arrival of Nobu Los Cabos Residences, 60 units situated next to the hotel and overlooking the golf course, due for completion in 2023.

Nobu Hotel Punta Cana, scheduled to open in 2025, will offer 200 guestrooms and suites including 12 villas, a signature Nobu restaurant, meeting and event spaces and 50 Nobu residences. Located on the eastern coast of Dominican Republic, Punta Cana will expand the brand’s footprint within the Caribbean region.

Nobu Hotel Orlando, also expected to open in 2025, is set in the heart of Orlando and close to the city’s theme parks and family entertainment attractions. The resort will feature 300 accommodations including eight villas, a Nobu restaurant, 50 residences and meeting and event space.

“The addition of these new mixed-use projects solidifies the mutual long-term investment that we have with RCD Hotels,” said Trevor Horwell, CEO, Nobu Hospitality. “Our ownership partners are critical in our development and it’s important that we work with like-minded owners who share our philosophy and passion for creating the highest quality product and guest experience for our customers.”

Roberto Chapur Duarte, president, RCD Hotels, said, “We are pleased to continue our thriving partnership with Nobu Hospitality with the introduction of these exciting new destinations to our existing Nobu Hotels portfolio in Mexico, Chicago and Miami Beach. The expansion into the Caribbean, a region where RCD Hotels has seen much success, is a pivotal move for Nobu Hospitality and we are delighted to be collaborating with them on this project.”
