Wyndham on March 13 announced that it would launch the Alltra all-inclusive brand in the Dominican Republic later this year.

Let’s get into the details!

404-room Wyndham Alltra Samaná Coming Later This Year

The hotel chain says the family-friendly Wyndham Alltra Samaná will have 404 rooms after it completes renovations.

Not much is known about the hotel just yet, but renovations are expected to concentrate on the main common areas, food and beverage outlets, and guestrooms. The hotel is projected to reopen for guests in the third quarter of 2023.

“We are pleased to continue the growth of the Wyndham Alltra brand and are excited to launch a new property in a fast-growing region of the Dominican Republic,” said Fernando Mulet, Chief Investment Officer for Playa Hotels & Resorts. “Many developers are beginning to hear about Samaná, and we’re excited to support the awareness of this desirable destination with the opening of this new resort.”

Indeed, there are just a handful of all-inclusive options in Samaná, including several Bahia Principe resorts. The town is located in the northeastern part of the Dominican Republic, a roughly 2-hour drive from Santo Domingo Las Américas International Airport (SDQ).

Wyndham Alltra is the chain’s all-inclusive option under the Lifestyle brand. You’ll find Alltra resorts in Mexico in Cancun, Playa del Carmen, and Riviera Nayarit. It’s unclear whether this new resort will participate in the Wyndham Rewards program or how many points will be required for an award stay at the property. For context, all 3 resorts mentioned above have award nights starting at 30,000 points per night for dates this summer, so the resort in Samaná will most likely follow.

Wyndham has perhaps one of the most straightforward award charts of all major hotel chains, as awards start at 7,500, 15,000, or 30,000 points per night for all hotels.

While earning Wyndham Rewards points might not be the easiest, you have several options from staying at Wyndham-branded hotels, earning welcome bonuses and points through spending on Barclays co-branded Wyndham Rewards credit cards, and transferring points from Citi ThankYou or Capital One.
