Marriott had announced the opening of AC Punta Cana, the design-led lifestyle brand’s debut property in the Dominican Republic.
Marriott states that the culture and rich history of the Dominican Republic served as inspiration for the hotel, defining it as a relaxed, upscale option in the city. The design of the hotel features subtle nods to Caribbean nature and culture, including coffee accessories, local crafts, ceramics, and ornaments. In addition, the hotel’s dedication to the creative community will be reflected in its programming with local artists of various genres showcasing the beauty of the destination with their interpretations.
AC Punta Cana is located just 15 minutes from the Punta Cana International Airport (PUJ) in the San Juan Shopping Center. The hotel hotel embodies the AC Hotels brand ethos ‘to curate an effortless experience that offers only the best of what guests truly need with no unwanted extras, focusing on the increasingly growing trend of “bleisure travel.”’
The hotel features 129 guest rooms and suites. The brand’s signature offerings include the Spanish-inspired AC Kitchen, open for breakfast, dinner and brunch on weekends. Guests are welcomed into a sophisticated atmosphere with contemporary design featuring natural tones, richly textured finishes and carefully selected pieces. The brand’s signature AC Lounge offers cocktails including a locally inspired gin tonic, local craft beers, and an elevated wine program. Tapas-style small bites complete the food menu in a comfortable and elegant atmosphere.
