Marriott Is Opening a New All-Inclusive Resort in the Dominican Republic 

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - March 4, 2024

Marriott is set to open its first-ever Marriott-branded all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic early next year, Caribbean Journal has learned. 

The company will be adding the former Sunrise Miches Beach Resort to its All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy portfolio, with plans to open the resort in the first quarter of 2025. 

That will include what Marriott called a “conversion process” that will begin in the next few months. 

The 498-room Marriott Miches Beach Resort, An All-Inclusive Resort will be set on almost 1,000 feet of beach in the increasingly hot area of Miches, where Dominican tourism officials have put much of their development energy in recent years.

The Club Med Miches kicked off the area’s growth when it opened in 2019.

The area is home to a burgeoning pipeline of new hotels, joining the already-debuted Club Med Miches to a pair of Temptation-branded resorts. 

Miches is set on the south part of the bay of Samana, northwest of Punta Cana by about an hour’s drive. The area is set to welcome another major new all-inclusive resort with the anticipated launch of the Hilton Zemi Miches all-inclusive resort later this year.  

So what will the hotel be like? The plan is for a large spa, six eateries, three bar-lounges, three pools, a jacuzzi, a fitness center and a disco, among other amenities. 

Marriott is opening its first Marriott-branded all-inclusive in the Caribbean later this month in Cancun. 

The All-Inclusive by Marriott Bonvoy collection already has six properties in the Dominican Republic: five under the Royalton brand and a sixth in the Sanctuary Cap Cana resort.
