For the brand’s first venture in the Caribbean, they rolled out the red carpet for parties, dinners, and experience for their VIPS, who came from around the world. Guests included Alessandra Ambrosio, Karrueche Tran, Lucien Laviscount, Wallette Watson, Moses Sumney, Prabal Gurung, Luar’s Raul Lopez, Wallis Day, Sophie Sumner, Lucas Castellani , Mia Moretti, RJ King, Dejan Obradovic, Brooke Wise, Adelina Novak, Phillip Picardi, Rúrik Gíslason, Georgia Sumner, Nick Wooster, Ashley Haas, The EDITION’s Frank Roberts, and more.

To commemorate the launch, the resort opened its doors on Saturday night to hundreds of locals for a surprise fireworks display and beach performance by Kaytranada, with additional sets from DJs Mia Moretti and Ruckus that went into the wee hours of the morning. Throughout the launch, guests experienced the resort’s eight food and beverage options from renowned chefs Tomaìs Bermuìdez and Francisco “Paco” Ruano. They also checked out the hotel’s private floating pier,  a breathtaking lagoon-sized pool, treatments from The Spa, and a visit to a local cenote.
