Rafael Nadal buys villa in the Dominican Republic

Rafael Nadal, the Spanish tennis superstar, buys villa in the Dominican Republic.

He looked into the Dominican Republic’s excellent real estate market, climate, security and the friendliness of its people.

He liked what he saw and decided to purchase a beautiful waterfront villa in one of the Dominican Republic’s most exclusive resorts.

The Spaniard, the number two tennis player in the world, is now the proud owner of a luxury villa in the “Playa Nueva Romana” resort, a project developed by the Piñero Group, situated in the country’s eastern region.

“The Dominican Republic has extraordinary weather, which is crucial not only for athletes, as well as for everyone else.

It’s almost as if I were near my country because the language is the same, it’s a solid investment and I have full trust in the Piñeiro Group,” said Nadal during a recently held press conference.

 A tennis legend

The Dominican Minister of Tourism, Francisco Javier Garcia, said during the press conference that having someone like Rafael Nadal invest in the Dominican Republic is truly invaluable. He said that Nadal’s confidence in the country is good for Dominican tourism and sports.

“This is a meaningful event for the Dominican Republic, for both the sports and tourism sectors, because this talented young man is an icon, a living legend that honors us with his presence, not as a tourist, but as another Dominican,” Minister Garcia told the press.

 “Playa Nueva Romana”

The “Playa Nueva Romana” features two golf courses, apartments and villas, a shopping center and marina, all on two kilometers of a perfect Caribbean beach.

The resort is situated some 30 minutes from La Romana International Airport, and one hour from Santo Domingo’s international airport.
