Sanctuary Cap Cana debuted this month as the first all-inclusive resort to join Marriott’s The Luxury Collection.
Located just 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport, the adults-only resort is also the 30th all-inclusive property in All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy‘s Caribbean and Latin America portfolio.
“Cap Cana is one of Dominican Republic’s most coveted areas offering an inspiring getaway for our global explorers with a stretch of white sanded beaches, turquoise waters, and architecture resembling a storied colonial Spanish era,” said Brian King, president, Caribbean & Latin America for Marriott International.
“The Luxury Collection is thrilled to expand its portfolio of destination-defining hotels and resorts with the opening of Sanctuary Cap Cana,” said Philipp Weghmann, vice-president and global brand leader for The Luxury Collection. “As a brand, we look forward to elevating the all-inclusive experience through the unique lens of The Luxury Collection, inviting guests to embark on new and transformative travel experiences.”
The property features 324 suites across its 19 unique room categories, including oceanfront luxury villas, and private island suites, with exquisitely furnished terraces and private pools overlooking the sea. Its grandest accommodation is the Castle Island Suite, a 5,500-square-foot, two-level suite on a private island with a master bedroom, secondary bedroom, two and a half bathrooms, large living room, full dining room, and three indoor plunge pools with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing infinite views of the Caribbean Sea.
It also offers approximately 46,000 square feet of event space, 17 event rooms of indoor and outdoor venues, and 400-person capacity in its largest space.
Other highlights of the resort include:
- four à la carte restaurants featuring cuisines such as Italian, seafood, Asian, and steakhouse;
- a buffet restaurant open for breakfast and lunch;
- a coffee shop and a deli;
- seven bars;
- six pools and a beach;
- and the Sanctuary Spa, which showcases ayurvedic treatments, hydro and cutting-edge therapies as well as beauty shop services.
The resort is also close to the Punta Espada Golf Club, The Caribbean’s number one golf course.
“Sanctuary Cap Cana is an ultra-luxury experience in which guests can expect a top-of-the-line service and quality that can’t be matched at the all-inclusive level,” said Gregory Maliassas, executive vice-president and chief operating officer, Playa Hotels & Resorts. “This resort 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 and we are honored to be partnering with the Marriott team.”
