$45 Million Renovation

“When we began planning the expansion of Sanctuary Cap Cana, we knew we were working off a tight deadline. I’m proud to say we were able to open ahead of schedule, completing the updates in just four short months and reopening the doors of this enchanting yet modern colonial village,” said owner of Sanctuary Cap Cana Francisco Martinez.



“I want to thank everyone involved in this project, notably the Hazoury family who have supported global investment in Cap Cana. Partnerships such as this have played a pivotal role in the sustained growth of the tourism sector throughout the region.”



Playa, a leader in the all-inclusive market, began operating Sanctuary Cap Cana effective October 1, 2017. The most notable upgrades include the redesign of all existing suites, the addition of two new buildings—increasing the room count by 140 rooms for a total of 325, a new lobby and a complete upgrade of the 20,000-square-foot Sanctuary Spa and fitness center.



“It is an honor to partner with a seasoned and esteemed European business leader such as Mr. Martinez,” said Bruce Wardinski, Chairman and CEO of Playa Hotels & Resorts.

“We are privileged to combine Mr. Martinez’s impeccably remodeled, iconic resort, with his vision of six-star luxury and Playa’s legendary Service from the Heart®, to excite and delight a wider range of guests following the resort’s $45 million-dollar expansion late last year. Together, we have the power to exceed even the most discerning guests’ expectations,” continued Wardinski.
