Bethesda, MD–All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy announced in a press release the 30th all-inclusive property in its Caribbean and Latin America portfolio with the opening of Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection All-Inclusive Resort, Dominican Republic.
Per the press release, this adults-only resort marks the first luxury all-inclusive resort for Marriott International and joins the celebrated ensemble of experiential hotels by The Luxury Collection brand. Located just 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport and near the Punta Espada Golf Club, Sanctuary Cap Cana combines beautiful architecture and design with impeccable service and lavish accommodations.
“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, of Caribbean & Latin America for Marriott International, in the press release, adding that the project is a “proof of our commitment to provide discerning travelers with unique vacation retreats,” with experiences laid out in “a convenient luxurious all-inclusive format.”
Sanctuary Cap Cana features
Sanctuary Cap Cana features 324 refined 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.
Guest rooms present a design inspired by Europe’s Mediterranean coast. The 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, expansive living room, full dining room, and three indoor plunge pools with floor-to-ceiling windows showcasing views of the Caribbean Sea.
Sanctuary Cap Cana offers four a la carte restaurants featuring cuisines such as Italian, seafood, and Asian, and a steakhouse; a buffet restaurant open for daily breakfast and lunch; a coffee shop; a deli; and seven bars. The Capriccio and The Steakhouse restaurants are the two signature restaurants onsite. The notable Sanctuary Town, located right across from the resort’s main lobby, acts as an extension for guests to dine and explore with distinctively designed venues offering a wide array of gastronomies: from a Burger Factory, a Sushi town, or Mama’s Forno pizza prepared in a wood fire oven to a Spanish Tavern among other offerings, while live entertainment is showcased on some weekdays.
Living up to the hype?
The property features six pools for relaxation or cabanas and sunchairs on the beach that savor local and international beers or cocktails from the Beach Bar.
The Sanctuary Spa lives up to its name as it has an oasis. It also has ayurvedic treatments, hydro, and cutting-edge therapies combined to offer the ultimate spa experience, including beauty shop services and couples massage cabins featuring a romantic bathtub that can be arranged with champagne and chocolate delights.
The resort is poised to be the backdrop for unequaled events facing the Caribbean Sea, with matchless facilities offering approximately 46,000 square feet of event space, 17 event rooms of indoor and outdoor venues, and a 400-person capacity in its largest space.
