Grand Resorts at Cap Cana

written by | Posted on October 26th, 2011

Introducing a luxurious new Dominican resort collection free from traditional boundaries.

This fall, one of the most exciting resort collections in decades opens on the eastern tip of the Dominican Republic.

Grand Resorts at Cap Cana, a Salamander Caribbean Collection, includes the luxurious oceanfront Sanctuary resort, the brand-new, village-style Fishing Lodge and the soon-to-be-completed Ocean Club. Together, they offer the Caribbean’s most attractive new destination—all only 10 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport, served by 38 airlines offering flights from 100 cities worldwide.

Twice the size of Manhattan, Cap Cana is an ecologically pristine, 30,000-acre exclusive retreat featuring ocean, beach, cliffs and forest. In addition to hiking trails, an array of water-based options and nature-based activities, it features Punta Espada, the top-ranked golf course in the Caribbean and Mexico.

All Grand Resorts guests enjoy privileges at each resort, while complimentary shuttles take people back and forth. And, unlike many Dominican destinations which are only all-inclusive, the Grand Resorts’ experience is open to all guest types and stays—from family reunions to executive group retreats.

Already open and newly under Salamander’s management, the stunning 176-suite Sanctuary was developed at a cost of $110 million dollars and features Caribbean- and European-influenced architectural designs and beautiful suites and villas with ocean views and swim-out access. There are five restaurants and bars, five pools, a lavish spa, and 18,000 sq. ft. of meeting space. Among Sanctuary Cap Cana’s memorable dining options is the highly acclaimed Blue Marlin restaurant. Perched above the Caribbean Sea on stilts, it offers the area’s finest seafood and most romantic location. Other restaurant themes include pan-Asian, Italian and a signature steakhouse, while continuous poolside and 24-hour room service are available.

Named for the Caribbean’s largest inland marina, Fishing Lodge Cap Cana is located within a masterfully designed village, crafted around an engineering waterfront marvel. Amenities include two themed restaurants, three bars, four pools, a 16th century-style stone wedding chapel, fitness center, boutique shops, and 30,000 sq. ft. of event space, including a spectacular outdoor amphitheater. Fishing Lodge includes 299 spacious, Mediterranean-style villas with extraordinary marina views and designer furnishings. Built on low-rise docks, they range from executive to 3-bedroom Royal Suites, while several feature private infinity pools and swim-out access. Guests will enjoy a secluded beach, a delightful 2-minute ride by private watercraft.

Ocean Club Cap Cana will open in 2012 as a 92-room boutique-style hotel, romantically situated where the marina meets the Caribbean Sea.
