Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic is an amazing honeymoon destination for those clients looking for a great beach and relaxing getaway. Punta Cana isn’t really a destination where clients venture off-site to sightseeing excursions as there are only a handful to do on the island. This is a true lover’s beach destination; however with that said if water sports are on your mind; then I would suggest flying into Punta Cana (PUJ) and then staying over in the Cap Cana area where the waters are more calm. Most times in the Punta Cana area there are lots of waves making it more difficult to enjoy the beach water; but the pools at the resorts sure make up for it.
The list for the Dominican Republic is very expansive for the resorts to honeymoon at. I am listing my top 3 favorites here; but there are many more than just this list.
Adults Only All Inclusive Resorts
Excellence Punta Cana
This was my fist all-inclusive resort back in 2008; they have since done a massive update to keep up with current trends; but still staying true to service and quality that you can expect from the Excellence Brand. This resort is on an amazing stretch of beach filled with thatched umbrella’s to sit under on your beach chairs. The resort has a large meandering pool that leads to a swim-up pool bar and the other side of the resort has an infinity edge pool overflowing into another pool below. The resort has stunning grounds and amazing restaurants and great nightly entertainment in the open aired theater (covered rooftop). This resort is for the clients that want some relaxation and quiet time with a little entertainment if you want some.
Excellence El Carmen
This resort opened in September of 2016. When they announced that another Excellence was coming the Dominican I was so excited. This property offers more of a contemporary vibe and modern layout of the resort. It has some stunning room categories with roof top private plunge pools and some stunning views of the Caribbean Sea. The beach is long and expansive and the service and quality of the resort is right on par with all the other Excellence resorts.
Secrets Royal Beach Punta Cana
This resort has been a top honeymoon resort in the Dominican for many years. The beach is stunning with so many lounge chairs and also has a beach bar & grill so you can truly have a full beach day without having to leave the beach for lunch.
