Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide will debut its Westin brand in the Dominican Republic in late 2013 at the PUNTACANA Resort & Club. The franchise agreement for The Westin Puntacana Resort was announced today by Starwood’s development partner Grupo Puntacana at the Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange (DATE).
The 204-room resort will offer 16 suites, meeting facilities, an outdoor pool, cigar bar, children’s club and walking trails all within minutes of the Punta Cana International Airport within the Playa Blanca area of PUNTACANA Resort & Club. Additional amenities will include a full-service spa, 24-hour business centre and the brand’s signature Westin WORKOUT gym experience.
Guests of The Westin Puntacana will have complete access to the first-class amenities available at PUNTACANA Resort & Club, including three miles of white sand beaches, 45-holes of championship golf, nine restaurants, a Six Senses Spa, and a 1,500-acre ecological reserve.
The Westin Puntacana Resort will be the second Starwood property to open in the Dominican Republic. Last year, Starwood announced plans to partner with GrupoPuntacana to open the Four Points by Sheraton Puntacan Village Hotel in late 2012.
