Sanctuary Cap Cana becomes Marriott’s first all-inclusive
The Sanctuary Cap Cana hotel became the world’s first Marriott International Luxury Collection all-inclusive resort for adults when it formally joined the prestigious luxury brand The Luxury Collection. The hotel is now Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection Adult All Inclusive Resort, with the new name combining to provide a truly unique and luxurious experience. “Sanctuary Cap Cana has been a great addition, we are happy that it is the first all-inclusive luxury property to join the All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy and Luxury Collection portfolio, and excited to work with Playa Resorts for the first time on this distinctive project in the Dominican Republic,” said Alex Fiz of Marriott International. Sanctuary is unquestionably a Caribbean jewel in the region.”
Meanwhile, Fernando Mulet, executive of Playa Hotels & Resorts, the hotel’s operating company, indicated that “as operators and developers of 23 resorts around the world, we value the success of this alliance and launch of the new Sanctuary Cap Cana, as a luxury collection from Marriott, which defines a new level of sophistication and exclusivity in the all-inclusive sector. Francisco Martinez said he felt grateful for the “great teamwork that made the recovery of the hotel possible after the passage of the hurricane, managing to rebuild the damage and convert the property to the standards of this great luxury brand, this being a great work, a unique hotel in the Caribbean, with magic and personality, for the enjoyment of all who visit us”.
Following the renovation, the resort unveiled its newly renovated spaces, which include 324 rooms in 19 distinct categories, ranging from luxurious oceanfront villas to bi-level private island suites; five top-class restaurants offering a variety of gastronomic experiences; seven bars and lounges; six pools; and a state-of-the-art spa and gym. It also has the Sanctuary Town, which is located in front of the resort lobby and includes a collection of nightclubs, bars, and restaurants open to Cap Cana residents and visitors. The Caribbean Sea serves as the backdrop for the hotel’s exclusive events, conventions, meetings, and celebration spaces.
