Why We Love This Hotel

  • A luxurious Caribbean hideaway with a Spanish Colonial backdrop
  • Suites offer panoramic views of the ocean and sugary sand beaches
  • The oceanfront golf course was rated the No. 1 in the Caribbean & Mexico by Golfweek in 2013
  • Schedule treatments at the expansive award-winning spa


Find serenity on the 30,000-acre area of the Dominican Republic known as Cap Cana. Along miles of sugar sand beaches, guests can pull up a lounge chair or relax by one of five pools at Sanctuary Cap Cana, known for its stellar service, gorgeous grounds and playful atmosphere.

Resembling a Spanish-colonial village with its stone walls, tiled roofs and turrets, the property has an old world ambiance fused with plush, modern interiors. Luxurious rooms start at 590 square feet with high-thread-count linens, a separate sitting area and flowing floor plans. En suite tiled bathrooms offer a separate shower and bathtub. Take morning coffee (Nespresso machines in every room) or an evening cocktail out on the furnished terrace or balcony to revel in the crystal blue ocean views.

Splurge at The Spa at the Sanctuary, where guests can relish “the joyous sounds of silence” (Conde Nast Traveler) and reserve treatments at indoor or outdoor massage suites. Once your treatment has ended, work out at the yoga studio and state-of-the-art fitness center.

The hotel's pristine 18-hole Jack Nicklaus signature golf course literally hugs the shoreline and was rated the No. 1 course in the Caribbean and Mexico by Golfweek magazine in 2013. If golf isn't your thing, the hotel also hosts cocktail-making classes and dance lessons. Afterwards, tuck into a meal at one of the hotel's five restaurants.
