The Details

Chic Punta Cana

Clients can remix their fall travel plans, thanks to Chic Punta Cana and The DJ Dispensary’s exclusive learn-to-DJ retreats. The hip Dominican Republic resort and the world’s only global business specializing in DJ retreats want travelers to learn this unique art of entertaining while enjoying the gorgeous backdrop of Punta Cana.

The three-day DJ Dispensary workshops will be open to DJs of all skill levels and will feature expert DJs as their instructors. The participants, up to a maximum of 10 per class, will experience twice-daily master class sessions, in which they will explore theory and practical skills, as well as daily, one-on-one tutoring sessions. Students will also partake in nightly sunset spins, all of which leading up to a live DJ set on the final night for classmates and Chic resort guests. The resort will stream their sets live so that friends back home can follow along.

When guests aren’t busy learning beats or spinning records, they will be able to relax in their Luxury Junior Suite, complete with a designer DreamBed. DJs-in-training will also be treated to 24-hour concierge service and complimentary Wi-Fi access. Chic, a Royalton Luxury resort, also offers guests five gourmet a la carte dining options, a lavish spa and an oxygen bar on property. And for friends who want to party together, book the opulent Chic Mansion, which includes six guestrooms and private pool.

The DJ retreat will be offered Sept. 24-26 and Sept. 27-29. Rates for individuals begin at $1,400 per person and include a three-night stay; a USB drive with a recording and photos from the guest’s live DJ set; and a DJ Survival Goodie Bag that includes a T-shirt, headphones, a handbook and a DJ Dispensary Certificate. Not one to shy away from the occasional pool party or electronic music celebration, Chic Punta Cana is an ideal venue for clients looking to mix things up this fall.
