Another day, another new Hilton-branded hotel project in the Caribbean.

Or at least it seems that way.

Hilton has continued its rapid Caribbean expansion in 2019 with the groundbreaking of a new $15 million Hampton by Hilton Punta Cana Airport and Commercial Center.

The 150-room hotel will be the first-ever Hilton-branded hotel in Punta Cana, easily the most popular destination in the Dominican Republic.

The property, which will be set next to the airport, will be set on three floors and combined with a commercial component — with the latter including restaurants, offices and a “Sky Bar” with a swimming pool with a view of the airport.

The hotel will also have meeting rooms and several pools, and offer free roundtrip transfers to the airport.

It is being developed by Bio Investment Group.
