You’ve worked hard to exceed expectations; shouldn’t your vacation do the same? Unexpected luxuries such as those you’ll find at the adults-only, all-inclusive 5-star Sanctuary Cap Cana will make you feel that you’ve arrived.

Located on more than 20 acres in a private retreat inside Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, this sophisticated resort features 184 rooms in 13 unique room categories, with three distinct architectural styles: Spanish Colonial, Caribbean Villas and The Castle Suites.

A Sanctuary Stay

—Rooms: Featuring rich wood accents and rattan furnishings, each of the rooms at the Sanctuary evokes its tropical surroundings. All suites and villas feature furnished balconies or terraces and offer such amenities as flat-screen TVs, espresso machines, double-jetted tubs, a pillow menu and silk bathrobes and slippers.

—Dining: Five a la carte restaurants offer guest the choice of fresh seafood, Pan-Asian cuisine, Italian, international fare and an Argentinian-style grill. The resort also features numerous bars including the poolside Freshco Bar, the oceanfront lounge Ocean Club, a traditional Irish pub and Anejo’s Tobacco & Rum Museum.

—Activities: Ideal for those looking to do everything or nothing at all, the resort offers a variety of activities from water sports to golf. Five swimming pools, including a saltwater pool, offer a variety of places to swim and relax. If poolside isn’t enough, the Sanctuary Spa offers an experience of pure indulgence.

Guests can enjoy a variety of classes from cocktail making to dancing. Other activities include ping pong, tennis on two lit tennis courts, boating, fishing and a round of golf on the Jack Nicklaus Signature Championship golf course.

Shopaholics will enjoy the chance to check out the Galleria and Fishing Lodge shops which include more than 90 retail offerings, including fashion boutiques, art galleries and souvenir shops.

Come sundown, things heat up with nightly live entertainment, cocktail parties, theme parties and more.

Under New Management

Most recently Playa Hotels & Resorts entered into an agreement to assume overall management of the resort, including operations, sales and marketing. As part of this initiative, which went into effect on October 1, Playa also relaunched the brand.

“We continue to execute our strategic plan and we see the Sanctuary brand as another opportunity to grow in the luxury all-inclusive sector,” said Bruce Wardinski, Chairman and CEO of Playa Hotels & Resorts in a release.

Sanctuary Cap Cana joins Hyatt, Hyatt Zilara and Panama Jack resorts under the management of Playa Hotels and Resorts. In July, Playa closed on the acquisition of a key strategic parcel of land, also in Cap Cana, and has begun construction on a new 750-room Hyatt Ziva and Hyatt Zilara All-Inclusive Resort Complex.

Additionally, Playa’s first two Panama Jack Resorts in Cancun and Playa del Carmen are slated to open in December 2017.
