As major brands like Hilton continue to expand their presence in the Caribbean, the world’s largest hotel company is ramping up its own plans in the region.

Marriott plans to add more than 6,000 new hotel rooms in the Caribbean region over the coming three years, a spokesperson for the company told Caribbean Journal.

That expansion will come across 40 different hotel properties in the region, part of a wider push in the Caribbean and Latin America that will see more than 100 hotel properties open in the next three years.

Six of those are pegged for the Dominican Republic, including a new Aloft hotel in Punta Cana and the Ocean Club resort, with the latter to be part of the company’s Luxury Collection.

Marriott’s most recent launch in the Caribbean was the debut of the Renaissance Cancun in the Mexican Caribbean in February.
