Barcelo Hosting Mr. Universe Pageant

OK, this might not work as a romantic getaway but if you’re looking for a bachelorette getaway with your bridesmaids, we just wanted to pass along word that the Mr. Universe Model Pageant will be hosted in the Dominican Republic at two Barcelo resorts this year. We’re not saying you’d plan a trip with your girlfriends just to watch the pageant but if it should happen to be running while you’re there, you can’t help but watch, can you?

The pageant and associated activities are taking place at Barceló’s premium branded hotels in Puerto Plata and Punta Cana, Dominican Republic from April 14 – 25, 2009. The program will include a series of events located in the country’s capital city of Santo Domingo, Puerto Plata and Punta Cana. The 12-day schedule of designer fashion shows and chic, glamorous parties will culminate with the grand finale on Friday, April 24, in Barceló Punta Cana’s new theatre, at which Mr. Universe 2008, the Spanish Ivan Cabrera Trigo, will crown his successor.

Puerto Plata The Barceló Puerto Plata will assume the role of host first, April 17 through 20. This all-inclusive, 582-room resort offers six specialty restaurants and a buffet as well as five bars, a beachside disco, two swimming pools, two tennis courts, water and land sports and a theater offering nightly entertainment.

Punta Cana From April 21 through 25, guests of the Barceló Punta Cana can enjoy the remainder of the Mr. Universe activities as well as the competition’s grand finale and crowning. This all-inclusive resort provides extensive water sports and recreational activities from kayaking to windsurfing to scuba diving. Other offerings include multiple swimming pools, water polo, tennis courts, basketball and bocce ball courts, a trapeze and a rock-climbing wall. The hotel’s seven restaurants offer culinary options ranging from traditional Dominican dishes to other international favorites including French, Mexican, Italian and Japanese cuisines. Additional facilities include a casino, spa, beauty shop, and gift shops. Adults can enjoy six lounges, including a swim-up pool bar, and a disco with live nightly entertainment.
