Best Luxury Resorts in Punta Cana
What I remember most about Punta Cana were the bright colors. They are a perfect depiction of paradise, and, in my opinion, the prettiest in all the Caribbean. I can easily close my eyes and envision the green of the palm trees, white of the sand, and various shades of ocean blue.
Besides beautiful beaches, Punta Cana has also become famous for an all-inclusive scene that is lackluster at best, lending it claim as an affordable Caribbean vacation. However, luxury resorts have become a trend in Punta Cana. Here are six that are worthy of your vacation time.
Sivory Punta Cana – Wine and Dine Like a Gourmand
Boutique hotel Sivory Punta Cana – Adults Only easily boasts one of the best wine cellars in the Dominican Republic with over 8,000 bottles. The hotel also serves excellent cuisine at one of its three international restaurants. With only 55 rooms, guest receive first class service in an intimate setting. While the hotel is not all-inclusive, the option is available.
Paradisus Palma Real – Classic Luxury With All-Inclusive Amenities
From the moment guests step into their room at Paradisus Palma Real Golf & Spa Resort All Inclusive, they know that they will be pampered with mahogany furniture, a Jacuzzi for two, and a European spa jet shower.
