Wyndham Opens Dominican Republic All-Inclusive, Plans Second Resort in Punta Cana 

By: Alexander Britell - April 16, 2024

Pristine beaches, lush rainforests and winding rivers; the Dominican Republic’s Samana peninsula is a haven for nature lovers and those in search of a more untouched Caribbean. 

Now, the area has a new resort, combining all-inclusive convenience with easy access to the area’s natural wonders, with this week’s debut of Wyndham’s first-ever all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic: the family-friendly Wyndham Alltra Samana. 

Alltra, short for “all inclusive travel for all,” is Wyndham’s high-priority all-inclusive brand in the Caribbean, where it has already debuted two other resorts in Cancun and Playa del Carmen, respectively.

The 404-room hotel is set in near the beach town of Las Galeras, and will be operated by all-inclusive company Playa Hotels and Resorts. A new waterpark for the resort has already launched construction, the company said.

Wyndham also told Caribbean Journal this week that it would be adding another all-inclusive in the Dominican Republic later this year, with the signing and planned launch of the new Wyndham Alltra Punta Cana. (More broadly, Wyndham opened another all-inclusive in the Caribbean with last summer’s debut of the Wyndham Grand Sam Lords Castle).

The brand’s Punta Cana resort will have 12 eateries and 620 suites in the Uvero Alto area of greater Punta Cana, set at what is the former Dreams Punta Cana resort. 

It’s the second major brand change for the 620-room property, which reopened at the end of 2022 as what was then the Jewel Punta Cana resort.

If you’re planning a Samana vacation, Wyndham says it is offering up to 50 percent off bookings made by April 30, for stays through the end of March 2025.
