4/15/12 Majestic Colonial Fire Update

Recommended Posts

On Sunday April 15, 2012 Majestic Colonial in Punta Cana suffered damage due to fire. Fortunately no one was injured and I just received the information below from the VP of Sales & Marketing for Majestic Resorts.  They are in the process of assessing damages and working diligently to make sure all scheduled weddings are accommodated without interruption. Please feel free to contact me at patty@wrighttravelagency.com with any questions or concerns. I will continue to post updates as I receive them. TA Patty     Hello Patty,   We have received word for the Majestic Colonial (see below email). Please note that Travel Impressions will not be re-locating any of our clients since there was minimal impact.   Kind regards     >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Dear Partners,  

First and foremost  we would like to apologize for the delay in this communication.  We wanted to send you a complete and thorough evaluation of the situation, both of the physical condition of the property as well as the Guest experience.


We are very proud of our team as I look back to the events of Sunday evening and the last 48 hours of the job that our employees did, both during the crisis and in the follow up since. Thankfully and most importantly no employees or guests were injured.   


On April 15, 2012 we experienced a fire at the Majestic Colonial Punta Cana and we were forced to re-locate some of our mutual clients in other hotels, as a precautionary measure. There was and is in fact no damage to any room what so ever, we evacuated as a precaution as a result of the volume of smoke in the hallways of buildings 1 and 2 only.  


The following areas have suffered some structural damage: 


·         Beach Restaurant

·         Spa  

·         Wet Bar 

·         Pool – As you may recall the pool of the Majestic Colonial, is over 400 meters long, with a hidden dividing wall at approximately 300 meters. We have currently re-opened the largest portion of the pool and it is completely operational. The area closest to the ocean/beach restaurant is closed.


The balance of our restaurants, bars, facilities and services remain completely operational for our clients on site.




Clients staying at the Colonial have been given access to the Majestic Elegance facilities as follows:


·         Access to the Beach and swimming pools

·         Access to all a la carte restaurants

·         Access to all bars

·         Access to the entertainment theatre

·         Access to the spa ($)



Additionally we have opened for daytime service at Majestic Colonial some facilities that are normally only available at night.


·         Parrots Bar

·         Plaza Bar

·         Matsuri restaurant

·         Taino restaurant

·         A beach palapa is now open on the beach for drinks and snacks


We are happy to report  that both of our hotels Majestic Colonial and Majestic Elegance are completely full and we have no issues operationally. Additional  employees have been hired to provide extra service to our customers.


Weddings and Groups :  Our wedding department is working on a one on one,  basis with all the brides to relocate any dinner or reception events previously planned at the Beach restaurant,  we have many different options for them both within the Colonial and also are offering the faculties†at Elegances. Important to note that neither of our Gazebos were affected, and wedding ceremony have continued as normal at the Majestic Colonial.  The wedding events held in the last 48 hrs. have been a tremendous success and the feedback from our brides is very positive.


The architect  and engineers of the Majestic Colonial have arrived from Spain today to evaluate and give us an report on how best to proceed with the repairs of the damaged areas. Once we get their professional opinion and deadlines for reconstruction we will send you an update.


We are working closely with your local representatives, and weâ€ll keep you updated regularly with any news, improvements or changes.  We ask that you share this information internally as well as with the travel agency community.


Thank you for your continued support of Majestic Resorts, please do not hesitate to contact to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.  


With kind regards,


Ricardo Espinosa

Hi Celia - I understand your concerns and I know they are diligently working to asses the damages and get the repairs underway as quickly as possible. I would think they would be able to complete repairs before October 2012. I'll post updates as I receive them and we'll do our best to keep you informed. Thanks! Patty

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
