Punta Cana is home to dozens of lavish properties, but Melia’s Paradisus Palma Real pushes the envelope when it comes to delivering luxury from start to finish.

With that in mind, here’s why Paradisus by Meliá in Punta Cana is considered among the top choices for luxury travel.

High-End Luxury With Unique Services

Meliá has long been considered one of the major leading luxury hospitality brands, but this year, the Spanish firm has further consolidated its position thanks to a new award.

This week, readers of the Global Traveler magazine named Paradisus by Meliá the best brand for luxury travel in the Caribbean. And that’s great news for travelers headed to Punta Cana, as the hospitality giant operates several top-rated properties in the coastal hotspot.

Among its many undertakings, Paradisus by Meliá stands out for offering the highest standard of luxury service and amenities. 19 resorts across the globe currently belong to the brand, which provides an elevated all-inclusive experience centered on the essentials of luxury travel.

Meliá currently operates a handful of all-inclusive resorts in Punta Cana, but Paradisus Palma Real Golf & Spa Resort is undoubtedly the creme de la creme when it comes to pure luxury and indulgence.

The sprawling resort boasts 554 luxuriously appointed suites, with a range of room categories to choose from, each offering different configurations for the ultimate luxury stay. Discerning travelers will find the Reserve Presidential Suite’s 155-square meter floor plan is more than comfortable, but even the more modest Deluxe Junior suites get the job done.

Meliá has carefully crafted the design of each and every single suite to create a harmonious experience that is perfectly intertwined with the stunning views guests can enjoy at the high-end resort. Natural tones and warm colors come together for a truly relaxing stay.

Aside from Paradisus Palma Real’s excellent design – the hotel recently wrapped up a massive $40 million renovation – the resort offers a delightful all-inclusive approach that includes both food & drink as well as unique activities.

From crafting jewelry to partaking in invigorating yoga lessons, Meliá has gone above and beyond to create an unforgettable journey for guests, regardless of age. Adult travelers can opt for the highly exclusive The Reserve, an adults-only space featuring VIP access to a private beach and pools.
