A groundbreaking event has been held to usher in the next stage of development for St Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences, which will feature a world-class golf course designed by none other than Jack Nicklaus, in an idyllic setting in the Caribbean.

Slated to make its debut in 2023, this landmark scheme represents the first St Regis hotel in the Dominican Republic. We find out more.

St Regis’ new resort passes a major milestone

When the St Regis Cap Cana Resort & Residences finally makes its debut, guests will have access to 200 luxurious rooms and suites with ocean views, 67 residences, the hotly tipped golf course and an array of other facilities, including the legendary St Regis Butler Service. The groundbreaking event, which took place on 14 October 2020, was attended by Luis Abinader Corona, president of the Dominican Republic; Yamil Isaías, executive vice president for Pioneer Funds; Dino Campagna, president of Campagna Ricart & Associates; and Matt Knights, area general manager for Marriott International in Santo Domingo.

“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 Knights. “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.”

“The addition of the St Regis brand to the island will diversify the hotel offerings in the country, marking an important milestone for the Dominican tourism industry,” added Isaías.

An eco-friendly development

Reflecting its location within a community committed to environmental preservation, the resort will meet the highest standards of sustainability and conservation-focused development. With this in mind, the project’s architectural design is intended to carefully integrate the hotel and residences into the natural environment.

“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 Campagna.

“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 owners-only amenities.”

Campagna Ricart & Associates is to carry out the resort’s construction. Marriott International, the hotel giant behind the St Regis brand, will then manage its operation.
