St. Regis Hotels & Resorts is celebrating the groundbreaking of The St. Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences, expected to be the first St. Regis hotel in the Dominican Republic. Slated to open in 2023, the resort is expected to feature 200 luxurious guest rooms and suites with spectacular ocean views and 67 residences, in addition to the iconic St. Regis Butler Service, bespoke amenities and a world-class golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus.

“The groundbreaking of The St. Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences marks an exciting moment for both Marriott International and the Dominican Republic’s tourism market,” said Matt Knights, Area General Manager for Marriott International in Santo Domingo, in a statement. “Cap Cana is truly one of the world’s most exclusive resort destinations and a perfect fit for the iconic St. Regis brand and its guests.”

Set within a community committed to the continued preservation of the environment, The St. Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences is expected to adhere to the highest standards of sustainable and conservation-oriented development. This includes the project’s architectural design, which finds its inspiration within the Punta Espada golf course, where the hotel and residences are integrated into the environment as if they were a natural component of the course.

“We are creating a world-class destination with The St. Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences and are proud to bring a new level of luxury to the Dominican Republic,” said Dino Campagna, President of Campagna Ricart & Associates, the company that is heading up construction. “The resort is slated to be developed on one of the most breathtaking natural sites within Cap Cana and will be complemented by the iconic style and bespoke service of the St. Regis brand. Meanwhile, the Residences will feature access to a dedicated residential team and exclusive owner’s-only amenities.”
