The Westin Puntacana Resort is scheduled to open in December 2013, at the exclusive Puntacana Resort & Club.
It is the second property run by the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide in Punta Cana.

The five-star, 204 room beach hotel, will also feature 16 suites, convention and wedding facilities, a large outdoor swimming pool, lobby bar, cigar bar, kids club, a business center that will operate 24 hours a day, and a Westin Workout gymnasium.
Guests will have access to all facilities at the Puntacana Resort & Club, which includes three miles of white-sand beaches, world-class golf courses, eight restaurants, a 1,500 acre ecological reserve featuring crystal-clear springs, hiking trails, an equestrian center and a Dominican-style ranch.
