Punta Cana currently stands out as one of the leading global hotspots for luxury travel, as evidenced by the massive number of award-winning resorts in the Caribbean destination. 

The city’s growing popularity as a hub for discerning travelers is helping the Dominican Republic to break new travel records, with new projections showing the sun-soaked island could welcome up to 10 million travelers this year.

As more travelers set their sights on Punta Cana this winter, here’s a look at why these two Marriott resorts are some of the best in the world

Sanctuary Cap Cana

One of the most stunning recently renovated resorts in Punta Cana, Sanctuary Cap Cana is the pinnacle of high-end luxury. A 5-star adults-only property, Sanctuary Cap Cana is situated in the exclusive gated neighborhood of Cap Cana, home to the finest white-sand beaches and trendy upscale restaurants & bars on the eastern coast of the Dominican Republic.

This year, the award-winning property secured the top spot on Travel + Leisure’s ranking of the best Marriott properties worldwide. The accolade further contributed to the resort’s already excellent reputation as one of the leading choices for high-end travelers.

Having undergone a massive renovation last year, Sanctuary Cap Cana delights guests with its lavish amenities, which include 6 luxurious pools, nightly entertainment, and 5 restaurants and 7 bars. 

Sanctuary Cap Cana holds some impressive titles, including the first and only all-inclusive resort to belong to Marriott’s Luxury Collection brand. The resort’s unique reputation largely stems from its stunning rooms, which include the Colonial Suites and Villas. The most demanding travelers can opt for the 5,500-square-foot Castle Island suite.

Earlier this year, Tortuga Bay, a lavish boutique-style all-inclusive resort in a private enclave in Punta Cana was voted the best luxury property in the Dominican Republic by the Caribbean Journal.

Much like Tortuga Bay, many of Punta Cana’s resorts rely on a successful combination of beautiful design, harmoniously integrated with nature, and impeccable customer service.
