Punta Cana is home to most of the top resorts in the Dominican Republic. The tropical tourist hotspot is quickly earning a reputation as one of the preferred destinations for Americans and Canadians as more airlines launch new flights there over the following months. We’ve rounded up five of the highest-rated resorts in Punta Cana this winter.
Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana
The Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana routinely ranks as one of the best luxury all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana and is one of the newest properties in Cap Cana, a popular resort area. The world-class resort is situated right next to Juanillo beach, a tropical white-sand beach that guests can admire right from their room.
The resort has 375 luxurious, spacious, and tastefully decorated rooms. Guests staying at the Hyatt Zilara Cap Cana have access to several top-range amenities, including fine dining around the clock. Travelers will also get to enjoy infinity pools, a water park, and 25 different restaurants. The resort is closed for repair until November 15, after which it will welcome guests just in time for the winter season.
Eden Roc Cap Cana
Eden Roc Cap Cana is undoubtedly one of the best choices for discerning travelers. The lavish resort has gathered more than 1200 5-star reviews on TripAdvisor and is one of the few properties on the platform with a stellar 5-star average rating. With 65 luxury villas, Eden Roc Cap Cana is the only Relais & Châteaux member hotel in the Dominican Republic, a testament to its impeccable service and quality.
The hotel enjoys a privileged beachfront location and is surrounded by lush greenery and gardens. Guests can enjoy its lagoon-like pools and varied accommodations, which range from villas with private pools to two-bedroom suites. A night at Eden Roc’s Junior Suite will set travelers back $950, but the price includes some of the finest amenities and all-inclusive delights.
Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana
Located in Uvero Alto, a famed resort village, Live Aqua Beach Resort Punta Cana is among the highest-rated resorts in Punta Cana. The 5-star property boasts some impressive credentials, including a 5-star rating on TripAdvisor. Guests will find 347 spacious rooms in the expansive property, as well as an array of luxury amenities.
The Live Aqua Beach Resort offers guests 15 different room types, from the comfortable two-person Premium Garden View room all the way to the lavish Luna Suite, which comes with more than 2300 square feet of space. A 5-night stay at the 5-star adults-only resort in December will set travelers back $2,111 for the Premium Deluxe Garden View Room.
Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana
Just like Hyatt’s Zilara Cap Cana, Ziva Cap Cana is located in an exclusive gated community where guests can enjoy unparalleled luxury in total privacy. The area is home to some of the country’s best golf courses, and the beach area offers endless aquatic excursions and exploration options.
Hyatt Ziva Cap Cana’s all-inclsuive luxury philosophy includes plenty of on-site activities such as nightly live entertainment, cooking, and yoga classes, as well as the stunning two-floor Zen Spa, which spans over 22,700 square feet. Guests can choose from 21 room categories, and with 375 stylish rooms, there’s a little something for everyone. Meanwhile, the hotel’s 14 dining options range from classic Italian to exotic Asian flavors.
Sanctuary Cap Cana
Those looking for the ultimate luxury experience in Punta Cana can choose to stay at Sanctuary Cap Cana. The lavish property is the first all-inclusive resort in the world to join Marriott’s The Luxury Collection. The 5-star resort recently underwent a massive overhaul to prepare it for joining the exclusive collection of famed properties around the globe, which guarantee guests unmatched luxury and memorable travel experiences.
Sanctuary Cap Cana is currently closed for repairs after hurricane Fiona caused significant damage to it and is expected to reopen on December 20 this year.
