Marriott International and Playa Hotels & Resorts announced an agreement on 16MAY to debut Marriott’s first all-inclusive extension of The Luxury Collection brand in the Dominican Republic at Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection Adult All-Inclusive Resort. The resort for adults is expected to open in summer 2022.
Nestled in the heart of the Dominican Republic, the resort is located in Cap Cana, a private enclave in Punta Cana comprised of 30,000 acres of beaches. Visitors can experience a variety of attractions, including the “Punta Espada” golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus, a marina with more than 150 slips accommodating yachts up to 150-feet, as well as an equestrian center featuring two polo fields designed by Alejandro Batros.
The adults-only 325-room resort underwent a renovation in 2019 and includes five a la carte restaurants, six bars, five pools, and Sanctuary Town, the resort’s own nightlife destination. Sanctuary Cap Cana is expected to become the first Playa-managed resort under a Marriott International brand.
“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 Fernando Mulet, Executive Vice President and Chief Investment Officer, Playa Hotels & Resorts
Marriott International entered the all-inclusive segment in 2019, leveraging seven of its brands, and currently offers a portfolio of 28 all-inclusive properties. The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts brand features 123 hotels globally in 41 countries and territories.
