Luxury resort Luxury Bahía Príncipe Fantasia needed excellent design skills along with reliable luminaires for a permanent light installation.
Located at the heart of the Caribbean and focused on providing entertainment experiences, the resort turned to Javier Álvarez’ Madrid-based installation company Capicúa to create ‘magical’ lightshows.
“With the Dominican Republic’s challenging weather conditions of constant humidity and severe rain, we had to use SGM luminaires,” said Álvarez.
Faced with a job to transform this luxury resort into a hub for shows and international artists, lighting designer Manuel Vicente chose a mix between architectural fantasy spaces, show lighting, and video mapping. Especially thrilled about the versatile P-5 POI, Vicente and Álvarez were able to mount a magical fairytale light installation for the resort in the popular tourist destination of Punta Cana.
“With its high IP66-rating, five-year warranty, the variety of optics, the P-5 POI was the ideal luminaire to light the buildings, facades, architectural structures, and thematic attractions,” said Vicente.
Bahía Príncipe is a Spanish group with resorts around the Caribbean, where Luxury Bahía Príncipe Fantasia brings the guests “a world of entertainment full of magic and sensations”.
Shortly after the installation, the resort was hit with extremely heavy rain, however, the SGM luminaires stood unaffected.
