Marriott’s fast-expanding AC Hotels brand has opened its first-ever hotel in the popular Dominican Republic tourism destination of Punta Cana.
The new AC Hotel by Marriott Punta Cana has a total of 129 rooms, set in the San Juan Shopping Center about 15 minutes from Punta Cana International Airport.
“With a picture-perfect location, the first AC Hotel in the Dominican Republic offers visitors elegant and purposefully designed spaces, modern rooms and a refined culinary experience,” said Jeff Tomczek, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, Distinctive Select Brands at Marriott. “We’ve created an ideal environment to become a benchmark in hospitality for Punta Cana and throughout the country, which will allow discerning travelers to live life by design with everything they need and nothing they don’t.”
It’s the third AC Hotel to open in the wider Caribbean this year, joining recently-debuted properties in both Tulum and Poince, Puerto Rico.
Amenities include the Spanish-inspired AC Kitchen, which serves breakfast and dinner, along with brunch on the weekends.
That’s along with the AC Lounge, which focuses on local craft beers and what Marriott calls an “elevated wine program.”
The terrace features an infinity pool and a children’s play area, along with food, drink and entertainment for hotel guests.
Meeting space includes 700 square feet indoors and nearly 3,500 of outdoor space, along with an “AC Library,” which the property calls “an open space designed for individual or groups to study, think and connect with creative ideas.”
The hotel, which is operated by Highgate, was developed by EGI Business Group.
