Cisneros Real Estate’s largest project to date is Tropicalia, a sustainable luxury resort development along the southern coastline of the Samaná Bay in the Dominican Republic. With a long-term vision and an emphasis on harmony with nature, Tropicalia will be an emblem of sustainable luxury tourism throughout the world. Tropicalia’s first hotel will be designed by Isay Weinfeld and accompanied by a Tom Doak 18-hole golf course and branded residences.
The project is an important economic catalyst for the Dominican Republic, which welcomes more than five million visitors each year and is set on creating a new benchmark for tourism. In response to the project’s holistic approach to development Tropicalia established its foundation, Fundación Tropicalia in 2008 to design and implement programs for the project’s neighboring communities in the areas of education, environment, productivity, and wellbeing and culture. The foundation’s goal, together with the local community, is to be drivers of sustainable and socioeconomic development in the region.
