Grupo Puntacana and the Starwood Hotels and Resorts hotel chain have signed a franchise agreement for the opening of their first Four Points by Sheraton Puntacana Village hotel.
The first Four Points by Sheraton brand hotel in the Dominican Republic will be located in the Puntacana Village residential complex, opposite the Punta Cana International Airport.
The Grupo Puntacana made the announcement at a press conference held at the Dominican Annual Tourism Exchange (DATE), the Dominican Republic Hotel and Tourism Association’s annual fair, which is also sponsored by the Ministry of Tourism.
The construction of this four-story project will cover an area of 9,000m2. It is scheduled to open in winter 2012.
Four Points by Sheraton Puntacana Village will be a 122-room international standard hotel on four floors, with spacious meeting and events facilities, a lobby bar, gymnasium, swimming pool and other amenities, with direct access to the broad range of shopping and restaurant options in Galerías Puntacana.
In 2011 the Four Points by Sheraton brand was chosen as the #1 brand for business travelers. Its arrival in Puntacana fills a gap for business travelers, whose numbers are constantly increasing in the area, and supports the developing financial center in Puntacana Village.
Grupo Puntacana president Frank Rainieri spoke of the resort’s 40-year track record as pioneers in the national tourist industry with a well-earned reputation at international level, and with a solid vision based on the promotion of the country as a tourist destination, environmental protection and the development and promotion of Dominican culture.
“Thanks to the tremendous improvement in the brand, Four Points enjoys a high level of loyalty which makes it a more attractive prospect for our development partners in the Dominican Republic and all around the world,” said Paul Sacco, Senior Vice President of Development for Starwood’s Hotels and Resorts North America. “Four Points offers an irresistible mix of comfort, style and accessibility, and is backed by the strength of Starwood via the award winning Starwood Preferred Guest program.”
