Playa Hotels & Resorts and Marriott International are set to launch Marriott’s first all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic with Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection adult all-inclusive resort.
The resort is the former Sanctuary Cap Cana, which will reopen this summer under The Luxury Collection brand thanks to the partnership between Marriott and Playa, the first-ever partnership between the two that will see Playa manage the resort under the Marriott brand.
It will join Marriott’s growing all-inclusive portfolio, which currently has 28 properties in total.
The resort will welcome guests to the Cap Cana district of Punta Cana, an area known for its pristine beaches. The resort will offer 325 rooms, five a la carte restaurants, six bars, five pools and its own nightlife section called Sanctuary Town.
The location is a short distance from the “Punta Espada” golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, as well as a marina with over 150 slips that can accommodate yachts and a world-class equestrian center.
“We are thrilled to bring our first all-inclusive brand extension The Luxury Collection to the Dominican Republic and are grateful to the Martínez family for developing such a unique resort,” said Laurent de Kousemaeker, Director of Development, Caribbean and Latin America, Marriott International.
“We are also delighted to have the opportunity to work with Playa Hotels & Resorts, a highly regarded all-inclusive operator.”
“In our first joint venture with Marriott International, Sanctuary Cap Cana is the perfect choice for the level of style and sophistication that has made Marriott’s The Luxury Collection resorts the standard bearer for unique, one-of-a-kind vacations,” said said Fernando Mulet, Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, Playa Hotels & Resorts.
