Edging right up to the sun-warmed sands and dazzling blue waters of Punta Cana’s Bávaro Beach, Paradisus Palma Real Golf & Spa Resort is the stuff of Caribbean dreams. The all-inclusive luxury resort blends colonial architectural elegance with contemporary flair and fully modern amenities, with a wide variety of offerings that cater to travellers of all aims – whether they’re looking to enjoy a fun family getaway, spend time with friends or indulge in a peaceful, romantic escape.
The personalised experience starts with the choice of accommodations. Every guest room and suite is an oasis of tranquillity outfitted with delightful touches, like organic minibar treats and bath amenities from Biology Smart Skin Care, as well as soothing contemporary decor. To up the luxe factor, however, opt for one of the Nikté suites, which come with either swim-up pool access or ocean views, as well as an array of perks like a destination concierge, superior in-room service and YHI Spa Water Ritual included.
For extra opulence in a serene adults-only atmosphere, choose The Reserve. This class of garden-view, ocean-view or swim-up rooms and suites are the key to accessing exclusive services and amenities, along with VIP areas of the resort including the private adults-only pool and beach. Guests of Nikté and The Reserve can also enjoy a Destination Inclusive® Experience designed just for them, such as a morning of yoga on a secluded private beach.
The exceptional buffet of choices at Paradisus Palma Real continues in the dining repertoire, boasting no fewer than 9 restaurants and 11 bars that appeal to all tastes and types. Savour authentic Dominican cuisine in a lush conservatory at Flora, or feast on decadent cuts of meat at steakhouse Mina. Craving Italian, Mexican or Asian flavours? You’ll find a restaurant dedicated to each, as well as a crowd-pleasing venue serving up international fare for everyone in the family. If you prefer your meals with a side of fresh sea air, on the other hand, laid-back beach club Kanna may be more your style. Follow up a delicious meal with an expertly crafted drink from one of the signature bars – including one specialising in Dominican rum – or a wine-tasting journey in The Winery, home to more than 180 vintages from the old world and the new.
All that indulgence will either energise you for active pursuits or drain you of all thoughts that don’t involve a lounge chair – thankfully, both are in order at Paradisus Palma Real. While the kids have a blast in The Kidsdom, equipped with games and toys for all ages, you can try an enlightening workshop, perhaps learning the secrets of chocolate or crafting jewellery in the local style. Should you be feeling sporty, don’t hesitate to join for tennis, beach volleyball or yoga, take a course in salsa, bachata or merengue, or go for a round of golf at the nearby José Gancedo-designed Cocotal golf course; green fees are included in your stay.
Of course, R&R is also on the menu in ample amounts, and it’s never more than a few steps away. Deep relaxation can be found in the healing and purifying treatments at YHI Spa, which combine traditional holistic methods with modern techniques for a one-of-a-kind spa experience. Or you can simply grab a good book and head to the stunning resort beach or one of the many swimming pools; someone will be by to take your cocktail order in no time.
