It just might be the most luxurious all-inclusive resort in the Dominican Republic — and now it’s officially open.

The new $110 million Grand Reserve at Paradisus Palma Real has officially made its debut in Punta Cana, the first of its kind in Melia’s Paradisus portfolio, and the third Paradisus to open in the country.

Meliá Hotels International continues to show its dedication to investing in the Dominican Republic region and adding to its world-wide luxury portfolio,” the company said in a statement. “Representing distinctive values, heritage, and personality, Meliá Hotels International’s various brands are found in iconic hotspots and undiscovered gems across the globe.”

The circle-shaped resort has a totla of 288 rooms ranging from 800 to 3,000 square feet, with the suites featuring either one or two bedrooms and amenities like balconies with whirlpool tubs, full-fledged dining areas and swim-up suites.

All of the swim-up suites come with direct access to an exclusive pool, Melia said.

The resort also has what Melia is calling an “immersive culinary program,” with 14 restaurants and bars ranging from a steakhouse with an open kitchen to a ceviche and poke bar.

The dining concepts also include the Domenica Gastro Hall, a new take on the traditional all-inclusive buffet, along with a beach club that will, uniquely, feature all-day dining.

That’s along with a first for Paradisus,the Black Oak “modern take on your classic cigar bar.”

The property also includes 144 suites for members of Melia’s Circle By Melia vacation membership program — meaning a total of 432 suites in the building.
