Gran Bahia Principe Turquesa-new place?

I was searching for our next trip and I came upon the Bahia Turquesa. Always thought that the Turquesa was part of the Palladium chain. Is this a new resort or new name to an old resort?

It is just a name change for the Bahia Premier ( furthest section from beach)

I guess many got confused and did not know if they were booking the "regular" Bavaro... or Bavaro Premier so they changed the Premier name to Turquesa.

You can read more about it including some posts by Brooklin on link below.

Sorry I should mention the Bahia resort is 5 resorts in 1.

Bahia Bavaro

Bahia Bavaro Premiere

Bahia Punta Cana

Bahia Esmeralda

Bahia Ambar

-------------

So they changed Bavaro Premier to Turquesa as it was confusing with the Bahia Bavaro

Daisy046.

The Grand Bahia Turquesa is presently called the Grand Bahia Bavaro-Premier resort - one of the 5 resorts in the Bahia resort complex in Punta Cana.

As of November 1/14 the Grand Bahia Bavaro-Premier resort will officially change it's name to the Grand Bahia Turquesa.

Nothing at all changes at the resort - it is simply a name change to allow the Bahia to better and more definitively market the existing Premier resort - will certainly cause less confusion for some guests when they are booking this resort as well..

Joel,

It is not new it's simply a rename of the Premiere section which is actually furthest from the beach and closer to main gate.

Here is the resort map the section on the left side all the Orange Numbers is the Premiere / Turquesa- section
