Welcome to Cap Cana

The World's New Great Destination

In the heart of the Caribbean, located in the southeast of the Dominican Republic, “The World’s Greatest Destination”, CAP CANA, is being developed. Dominican Republic. CAP CANA is the most exclusive residential project of the Caribbean.  With a long-term projected investment of 1.5 billion dollars, the first stage of the Project comprises an area of 25 million square meters (6,200 acres) of a total of over 120 million square meters (30,000 acres), 5.5 kilometers (3.4 miles) of virgin beaches surrounded by coral reefs with magnificent views of the Caribbean Sea.  Enjoying a privileged climate, CAP CANA is surrounded by a natural beauty that makes it the new Dominican paradise.  CAP CANA is located on the easternmost part of the country, perfectly accessible by the Punta Cana International Airport, which is only 10 minutes away and has direct flight service from the USA, Latin America and the most important European cities.

The CAP CANA project will be developed in a series of stages during the next 10 years, with 5,000 residential units and 500 hotel rooms. Due to the magnitude of each of these stages, they could be considered as individual development projects. Each of them will enjoy all the facilities that make CAP CANA such a special place.  To date, more than $300 million dollars have been invested in infrastructure and construction, the majority of which has been completed with Cap Cana own funds, including the Caletón BeachClub, over 25 kilometers of roads, an aqueduct and water supply, its own power generation and distribution, over 80% of the first stage of the Marina, and the 18-hole Punta Espada Golf Course, a Jack Nicklaus Signature course, which began operating late 2006.  The project includes two additional Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Courses, the state-of-the-art largest inland marina of the Caribbean with over 500 slips accommodating 150-ft yachts, elegant boutiques and restaurants located in charming scenarios. White sand, clear blue beaches, world-class spas, swimming pools, tennis courts, scuba-diving, among others.  “Start Big” has been one of our main goals and the development of the project shows it, with future development to include polo and riding fields, school, hospital, and retail shops.

CAP CANA offers a unique lifestyle, a membership in the most complete private club of the world, including membership in golf clubs, yacht clubs, sporting clubs and beach clubs, with luxury service and hospitality.

Origin of the name: CAP CANA The name derives from the French word “cap”, meaning “cape”, due to its location in the chain of capes known as “La Majagua”, between Cabo Engaño and Cabo San Rafael. The word “cana” is due to the large of number of this type of palm in the Project. Thus, the name CAP CANA.

Why is it the new Caribbean destination? CAP CANA has all the necessary elements to be the luxury destination of the region: climate, Caribbean charm, the possibility of owning a property facing the beach and enjoying the best golfing.  In order to achieve this, it relies on a team of the best professionals (architects, designers, engineers, etc.) who put their knowledge and expertise at the service of the client.  In the midst of nature and washed by crystal blue waters, the seal of exclusivity is engraved in all and each of the services offered by CAP CANA.  CAP CANA is a way of indulging in the Caribbeean lifestyle in a luxurious environment.

  • An international destination for yachting and scuba-diving.
    CAP CANA’s Marina is one of the pillars of the project, designed to be the most important marina in the Caribbean. The Grand Canal (almost sixty meters wide and five meters deep) will be the central axis, surrounded by luxury stores, exclusive restaurants and five-star hotels. Transportation through these water thoroughfares will be by environment-friendly “vaporetto” shuttles, an innovative system exclusively for transporting guests and visitors.  The CAP CANA Marina will be built in three stages, representing a 96 million dollar investment. Once the third stage is completed, the marina will be able to birth 500 yachts. It will be the only full service marina in a 400 kilometer radius between the Turks and Caicos and Puerto Rico, accommodating all types of yachts, including 150+ ft (50 m). In addition, it will offer maintenance services and port and customs authorities.  Its privileged location in the Caribbean, close the Mona Channel, one of the five main fishing destinations of the world, is enviable due to its proximity to the coast and its extended fishing season (March to October).

An unforgettable experience: Live golf in the hands of Jack Nicklaus.  One of the best golf players of all times, Jack Nicklaus, known as the “Golden Bear”, winner of 20 of the main world golf tournaments and currently one of the most prominent golf course designers, has completed the design of one of three CAP CANA’s golf courses under Jack Nicklaus signature, for a total investmentof 42 million dollars.  With the most golf courses than any other country in the Caribbean, Dominican Republic has a privileged position in the world of golf. CAP CANA reinforces this prestigious reputation by having three Jack Nicklaus Signature golf courses, becoming a unique destination to enjoy this sport.  Punta Espada Golf Course is the first of the three golf courses and is destined to become the most spectacular of all three, considering that 8 of its 18 holes are by the sea, and 9 of the remaining 10 have a view to the Caribbean. Its topography incorporates the natural characteristics of the environment: coast, beach, coves and greens, guaranteeing the enjoyment of golfers at all levels, including participants of world tournaments. Jack Nicklaus himself played the first round of golf at Punta Espada during the Grand Opening this past November 2006.

Punta Espada Golf Club.  Located inside the exclusive area of Punta Espada Golf Course, in hole 19, the Club enjoys an impressive view of 10 of the 18 holes, the practice range, and the Caribbean Sea, which borders all the southern coast of the Project.  CAP CANA hired the acclaimed Mexican architectural firm GVA to design the Golf Club in addition to hiring Nicklaus for the design of the golf course. The Golf Club covers an area of 3,252m² (Over 30,000 sq ft) with a lobby, pro shop, bar, restaurant seating 90 guests, and library, among other services, surrounded by lavish landscaping, waterfalls and all.

Caletón Beach Club.  Located close to the sea, with a total construction area of approximately 4,500 m² (Over 40,000 sq ft) which includes covered area, terraces and gardens; the Caletón Beach Club offers its visitors the opportunity to enjoy the relaxing sounds of the Caribbean Sea. The concept of Caletón Beach Club reflects a tropical ambiance with native elements, which with the warmth of its interior design, exudes a pleasant sense of harmony, elegance and serenity, at all times highlighting the beauty of its natural surroundings. Its high ceilings lined with “cana” and its open walkways prepare visitors for a unique experience.  The exclusive and elegant club has an ample reception lobby with a waterfall and water mirror, tropical gardens, and area for exhibits, spa, restaurant and bar, grill, terraced swimming-pool area, among other facilities.  Group CAP CANA hired the interior designer Patricia Reid Baquero to decorate the exclusive and elegant Caletón Beach Club, whose architectural design is by the architects Oscar Imbert Tessón and Antonio Segundo Imbert.  The Caletón Beach Club is considered the largest of the Caribbean.
