The Dominican Republic has always been a very popular destination in the Caribbean. Located on the Southeast shore of the Dominican Republic is where you will find Punta Cana highlighting dramatic beaches and turquoise Caribbean seas. This heavily resort-populated destination offers many options family-friendly, adult-only, all-inclusive, and not all-inclusive. Here are just some of the top adults-only resorts in Punta Cana…
Sanctuary Cap Cana – Set in the exclusive resort community of Cap Cana, the Sanctuary is a five-star luxury resort with Spanish Colonial-style guest suites, shopping at Sanctuary Town, and the top-rated Sanctuary Spa. It’s the premier adults-only in Punta Cana, newly part of the All-Inclusive by Marriott portfolio. Make sure you go for the stunning swim-up suites.
Royalton CHIC Punta Cana – Billed as a “tropical playscape,” the Royalton puts the emphasis on providing a youthful, high-energy experience, highlighted by a signature foam pool party. With 320 rooms on Uvero Alto Beach, the all-inclusive welcome couples as well as friends’ groups and bachelor/bachelorette parties to enjoy dining in seven restaurants, drinks at five bars, casino action, and spa relaxation. It’s also part of the All-Inclusive by Marriott portfolio.
Secrets Cap Cana This all-inclusive resort, part of the AMResorts (and now Hyatt, too), has 16 bars and restaurants, a Pevonia spa, a freeform swimming pool, and Preferred Level suites for extra pampering. It’s the flagship Secrets resort in the Dominican Republic, and among the top luxury all-inclusive resort in the region.
Secrets Royal Beach occupies 700 yards of Punta Cana beachfront and features a spa, lazy river pool, a menu of activities, and multiple dining and drinking options under its Unlimited-Luxury inclusive package.
Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana – A recent addition to the Cap Cana community, the Hyatt Zilara lets adults be kids, too, with a water park with slides, a lazy river pool, swim-up bars, and guest suites. Yoga, pool parties, and dance lessons are all part of the all-inclusive experience.
Melia Punta Cana Beach – What’s a “Wellness Inclusive Resort,” you ask? You’ll find the answer at this five-star property on Bavaro Beach, which features distinctive resort spaces dedicated to different aspects of wellness: Social, Silent, Sensory, Culinary, and Personal. Spa treatments are included when you stay in The Level suites for five nights or more (one service per stay) or in The Level Wellness Suite (one service per day per person), and the resort’s Healthy Traveler offerings include vegan and vegetarian dining and detoxifying cocktails.
Le Sivory by Portblue Boutique – A boutique hotel is a relative rarity in Punta Cana, but the Sivory, part of Spain’s PortBlue group, combines the intimacy of a small (55-room) spa hotel for adults only with an all-inclusive package that includes unlimited dining and drinks at a half-dozen restaurants and bars (including the acclaimed Gastroatelier), 24-hour room service, and use of non-motorized water toys.
