Marriott Bonvoy members will soon have another all-inclusive option in the Caribbean, which is great news heading into the summer travel season.
Here’s everything you need to know!
Sanctuary Cap Cana Joins The Luxury Collection
Marriott announced that it is opening the Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection Adult All-Inclusive Resort in the Dominican Republic this summer.
The property is slated to become Marriott’s first adult all-inclusive resort from The Luxury Collection in the Dominican Republic.
The Sanctuary Cap Cana consists of 30,000 acres of beaches, a golf course, an equestrian center, and a marina that can accommodate yachts up to 150 feet. The resort has a whopping 325-rooms and is for adults only. It underwent a renovation in 2019 and includes 5 à la carte restaurants, 6 bars, and 5 pools.
According to Marriott, the Sanctuary Cap Cana is expected to become the first resort managed by Playa Hotels & Resorts under the Marriott International umbrella.
“We are thrilled to bring our first The Luxury Collection all-inclusive brand extension to the Dominican Republic,” said Marriott’s Laurent de Kousemaeker in a statement. “We are also excited for the opportunity to work with Playa Hotels & Resorts, a very reputable all-inclusive operator.”
Marriott currently has a worldwide portfolio of 28 all-inclusive properties, and The Luxury Collection has 123 hotels around the world. The Luxury Collection is said to offer guests “unique, authentic experiences that evoke lasting, treasured memories.”
We don’t know how many points will be required to redeem award nights just yet. But cash rates for the current iteration of the property show some competitive prices, with rooms in August for as low as $378 per night.
Marriott already has 8 other properties in Punta Cana and 13 throughout the country. A handful, like the Royalton Bavaro and the Hideaway at Royalton Punta Cana, are all-inclusive properties under the Autograph Collection brand.
All-inclusive resorts aren’t for everyone, but they offer good value for travelers looking to eat, play and stay all in one place. The Dominican Republic has many all-inclusive premium options, including 2 (soon to be 3!) Marriott properties.
We still don’t know many details about how much award stays at Sanctuary Cap Cana, a Luxury Collection Adult All-Inclusive Resort will cost, but similar properties in the area range between 50,000 to 100,000 Marriott Bonvoy points per night, so it won’t be surprising if the Sanctuary property falls somewhere between those figures.
