Designed by architecture firm Requena y Plaza, the interiors of AC Punta Cana will be inspired by Dominican character and its natural influences.

The firm plans to use warm colours, touches of local crafts, and commissioned pieces to set up a ‘supreme complement of contrasts’ in the hotel’s ambiance.

AC Punta Cana will be Marriot’s 11th AC property in the Caribbean.

Founded in 1998, AC Hotels brands has nearly 160 hotels across 22 countries and territories.
