Viva #OnLife

As part of Viva Wyndham Resorts’ passion for life, it strives to protect all surrounding environments and cultures by implementing environmentally friendly green programs.

The #OnLife program is driven by the prospect of a greener, brighter future, for all of us. At Viva Wyndham, we strive to operate in an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable manner. As part of the tourism sector, responsible tourism is one of our core values and we work to achieve our vision through a series of actions. These include a pledge to use renewable energy sources, the implementation of greener practices in our operations, and support for local communities, all in the hope that, through them, we can create a healthier and happier world.

The company's foundation incorporates responsible tourism as one of its pillars; it encompasses three major masts:


Education and health

Support to local communities


Viva has been a pioneer in the hotel sector in the Dominican Republic by installing photovoltaic plants at Viva Wyndham V Samaná, generating more than 68% of its energy, achieving record clean energy production and significantly reducing the emission of C02 gases that contribute to global warming.
This springboard has been extended to other complexes in the company’s DR portfolio, surpassing the 2MM kilowatts of solar power mark.

Other efforts:

  • Solar panels for water heating at resorts in the Dominican Republic and the Bahamas.
  • Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach & Palace are the first properties in the country to use natural gas for their kitchens, boilers and clothes dryers, as a way to reduce CO2 emissions to the environment.
  • Elimination of plastic straws in all properties.
  • Reduction of single-use plastic in the 8 complexes.
  • Collaboration with Indiana University to support environmental and ocean research in Bayahibe, La Romana.
  • Installation and maintenance of coral reef nurseries in Bayahibe, La Romana, which serve as a vital component for marine conservation.
  • Beach cleaning and reforestation activities at all destinations.
  • Installation of wastewater treatment plants.
  • Waste sorting and recycling.

Viva Wyndham Resorts actively participates in the La Romana Bayahibe Hotel Association. Some of the most important achievements include obtaining Blue Flag certification for Viva Wyndham Dominicus Beach, the first beach in the Caribbean to receive this award; the construction of the Padre Nuestro settlement, infrastructure and community center; the relocation and housing of 265 families that had settled in the area and were contaminating the aquifers that supply water to the town of Bayahibe and the hotel zone; obtaining a Protected Area declaration under the care of the Association; the construction and sponsorship of the Bayahibe Public School.
