According to Herve Humler, president and CEO of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company, Marriott International is building three massive resorts in and around Cabarete, Puerto Plata. These include a W-Hotel/Resort, a Luxury Collection Resort, and a Ritz Carlton Reserve (one of only 4 in the world). The three combined will cost approximately $350 Million Dollars. According to Herve Humler, the plan is to target upper-echelon luxury travelers — and “bring them back to the Dominican Republic.”
The Ocean Club is scheduled to open October 2021.
