We’ve got a long and fruitful history with the Excellence Hotels Group, and relationships such as this flourish to the benefit of everyone involved. We’re anointed with the unique ability to bag you exclusive upgrades, and we have special access to the Excellence Hotels Group‘s newest, most exciting projects.

Today is one such day, Holidaymakers, as we can proudly announce that we’ve secured the first booking on planet Earth for the newest member of the Excellence family: Excellence El Carmen.

Excellence El Carmen ushers in the next level of luxury for the Excellence Hotels Group, building on the high standards pioneered by Finest Playa Mujeres. It’s going to be packed with old Excellence favourites and indulgent new features, as detailed in this little televisual adventure:

The first to Excellence El Carmen

You may remember that we famously made the first booking in the world for Finest Playa Mujeres, so we’re now two-for-two on the new Excellence Hotels Group properties. The Excellence El Carmen first-bookers are Rob and Lisa Stokes, and they’re both unshakably committed to the outstanding quality that defines the Excellence Hotels Group. We had ourselves a little interview, and here’s what Rob and Lisa had to say on Excellence El Carmen:
What made you want to try Excellence El Carmen, the newest resort from the Excellence Hotels Group?
We have been to Excellence Punta Cana for the past five years. Our first visit was to celebrate our honeymoon. We were immediately taken with the way we were made to feel special. The service we received was second to none. The opening of Excellence El Carmen coincides with both our 50th birthdays so it will be a celebratory visit. All our holidays with the Excellence Hotels Group have been perfect, from the “welcome home” right through our entire stay. Our faith in the Excellence Hotels Group has been fulfilled with each visit. We had no hesitation in booking Excellence El Carmen and we are very much looking forward to it.

Have you been to the Dominican Republic before? What do you like about the Dominican Republic?
We have been holidaying in the Dominican Republic for the last five years. We love the people that have become our friends, the beauty of the country and beaches, and the excellent service we receive from the Excellence Hotels Group.

Have you sampled the Excellence Hotels experience before? What do you love about Excellence Hotels?
Yes, for the past five years we have been going to Excellence Punta Cana. We love the way we are made to feel special and welcome. We like the freedom to dine without making reservations. We like that there is no towel card system for pool towels and there is a no wristband policy. Everything is always kept in pristine condition and the service and staff are a credit to the Excellence Hotels Group.

How are you getting prepared for your Excellence El Carmen holiday?
First we have another Excellence Punta Cana holiday to look forward to. In the meantime we are excitedly looking forward to information and updates on the build in progress.

A special thank you

In recognition of this first booking, and as a sign of appreciation for the Stokes’ undeniable faith in the Excellence Hotels Group, we’ve managed to secure a FREE 7 night stay at the Excellence property of their choice! Rob and Lisa say they’ll be celebrating with a bottle of champagne and two glasses, and we can’t fault those tactics!

It feels good when everybody wins: we’ve helped the Stokes’ make an amazing holiday, and our buddies at the Excellence Hotels Group are getting their new hotel off the ground. Job done.
