Destellos TV is a weekly magazine hosted and produced by respected media moguls, Aracelis Ureña and Edgar Lantigua of the Dominican Republic. The television show airs Sundays from 9:00 to 10:00 pm, on Costa Norte Channel 3 in Sosua/Cabarete and Channel 44 in Puerto Plata.
This hour-long episode of Destellos TV aired May 29, 2016, in recognition of our hotel’s 20th Anniversary in Cabarete. After a heartfelt conversation with co-founder and visionary of Villa Taina, Claudia Schwarz, the focus shifts to the hotel’s beachfront restaurant, Serenade. A candid interview with Executive Chef Luciano Merlino gives some insight into the restaurant’s concept. Then Host Aracelis Ureña accompanies Chef Merlino into the kitchen of Restaurant Serenade for a tour and quick cooking lesson. After a few drinks at the bar, the focus shifts to our on-site kiteboarding and windsurfing school, The Cabarete Windsports Club. Franzi, son of the school’s owner, chats a little bit about what it takes to get out there on the water. Destellos TV ends the day with a relaxing massage from Alisa, the head masseuse at our Tranquila Spa.
We are flattered that we had an entire hour-long episode dedicated to our Cabarete, Dominican Republic hotel. Big thanks to Aracelia and Edgar for taking the time to showcase all the amenities we have to offer.
