The AMResorts chain of hotels, a subsidiary of the Apple Leisure Group, announced that it will open the Onyx Punta Cana in November 2016.
The 500-room all-inclusive facility, overlooking the Caribbean Sea, will cater mainly to family-oriented vacationers.
Other features are restaurants, 24-hour room service, swimming pool and beach, spa and bars offering local and international drinks.
The all-inclusive, adults-only, Onyx Punta Cana is being built next to the Breathless Punta Cana Hotel.
Both hotels are owned by the Spanish Martinon Group and managed by the American hotel chain AM Resorts.
