Sure, Punta Cana is known for its admittedly impressive collection of all-inclusive resort properties. But beyond them are some very special Punta Cana hotels, unique properties tucked away on its white-sand beaches, places to stay that offer a different kind of experience from the typical Punta Cana vacation.
So where do you stay if you’re looking for the other side of Punta Cana hotels, the side that doesn’t involve the crowds?
We have you covered, with five greater Punta Cana hotels that offer the best of the region’s most popular travel destination.
Eden Roc at Cap Cana The greatest hotel in the Dominican Republic is in the heart of Cap Cana, the tony enclave on the edge of greater Punta Cana. This Relais & Chateaux boutique is the standard for luxury in the country (and, some would say, in the Caribbean), with a combination of suites (including beachfront options) and a remarkable culinary program that includes six concepts, from the strikingly-designed Mediterraneo to the breezy, romantic La Palapa. And while we love the newer beachfront rooms, we’d still go for the plunge pool suites for the ultimate Eden Roc experience.
