Paradisus Punta Cana: a lush tropical getaway

When you think about the Caribbean, luxury may not always be the first thing that comes to mind, particularly if you’ve had a bad experience in the past.  But if you’re looking for a unique and luxurious Caribbean getaway, look no further than the Paradisus Punta Cana Resort in the Dominican Republic.

Let me first start off by saying that I am not a travel agent, nor am I associated with this resort in any way.  I am simply a frequent vacation-goer who appreciates lush and luxurious surroundings and had a particularly memorable experience staying at the Paradisus Punta Cana.

When you first arrive at the Paradisus, it looks and feels like an exotic botanical gardens set in paradise.  The first thing you see is a beautiful open-air design with an endless amount of flora surrounding you everywhere you turn.  Furthermore, there are fountains and little waterways throughout the lobby where you can check out different species of fish.  As a lover of gardens and the great outdoors, I instantly fell in love with the surroundings.  The resort grounds are huge so you can either opt for transportation (which comes by often) or enjoy a leisurely stroll.  If you love long romantic walks, exotic flowers and some serious photo opps, you definitely won’t mind walking around the beautiful resort.

The Paradisus Punta Cana is an all-inclusive resort, but we decided to book the Reserve and it was definitely worth every penny.  The Reserve is like a resort inside a resort and right off the bat we were treated like royalty!  Our suite included a jetted tub, living room, private balcony, 24-hour room service and more.  The suite exuded luxury and it was fit for a king… or a small family!  In addition to amazing accommodations, the Reserve guests have access to a private pool as well as all the amazing restaurants and bars.

I am typically pretty picky when it comes to beaches, but the Playa de Bavaro beach amazing.  The white sandy beach was gorgeous and the Caribbean water was crystal clear.  But if you’re into pools, there are plenty of them!  Both the beach and pools have romantic cabanas and beds, but those on the beach make the perfect place to watch the sun go down.

All of the employees are extremely friendly and accommodating and despite traveling to a new country, they make you feel right at home.  If you’re looking for an exotic beach getaway or simply enjoy lush tropical surroundings, definitely look into the Paradisus Punta Cana.

    I stayed here last year and agree that it is wonderful. It remains one of the nicest places I have ever stayed. We were also in the Reserve, in a one bedroom suite, and I could not believe it when we walked in and it was so huge and gorgeous. My favorite place was one of the beds out by the pool, where I could curl up with a book and be completely private. And the food was absolutely wonderful everyplace we went. The only problem I could see what that the Reserve was kind of far away from the beach and the trams were a little irregular. But still a fabulous place!

    Punta Cana is my favourite destination within the Dominican Republic. For a family holiday it has everything you could possibly ask for. The resort hotels are amazing.
