Punta Cana, the manmade resort area at the Dominican Republic’s eastern tip, is good for reliable sunny weather and plenty of beach time along its 20-mile stretch of sand. Removed from the sprawling megaresorts Punta Cana is known for, the 55-room Sivory resort fronts a secluded beach that’s dotted with palm trees, lounge chairs and thatched palapa umbrellas. Walk farther down the beach and you’ll eventually find other resorts, but for honeymooners and romance-seeking couples, it’s hard to beat Sivory’s unblemished beach and wonderfully private atmosphere.
Bed and Bath
The 55 suites are uniformly spacious (the smallest is 650 square feet), decorated in earth tones and sandy shades, and all have balconies or terraces overlooking the ocean or gardens, plus private plunge pools in the Luxury Oceanfront Suites. There are 21st-century extras, too, such as individual air-conditioning controls, wine coolers and soaking tubs for two, or a couples shower with double showerhead. Honeymoon Suites are a whopping 950 square feet, and the staff may just sprinkle flowers and chocolates around the suite — whether you’re on your honeymoon or not.
When you do venture outdoors, there’s plenty to entertain you: boogie boards, kayaks, and snorkels, not to mention a deep sea fishing charter. Or if you’ve been inspired by the natural relaxation of Sivory, there’s also a menu of massages, facials and treatments at the Aquarea Spa & Wellness Center. The sense of romance is restored after dark, with dinner by candlelight (with a dress code) at the lavish Gourmond restaurant, which has an 8,000 bottle wine list; with Mediterranean fare in an alfresco setting at La Veranda; and with successful Asian fusion at Tau, a sexy spot with just eight tables. Afternoon tea and a piano and cigar lounge highlight Sivory’s adult vibe and, more important, the invitation to relax and do nothing at all.
In the Area
The Sivory is not adjacent to a golf course, but the concierge can easily book tee times for you at one of the 18-hole courses around Punta Cana. You can book them with the front desk well in advance of your stay. And if you tire of your own secluded stretch of beach at the hotel, head out to the best of the rest: Playa Cabo Engaño, Playa del Macao, and Playa El Cortecito. Don’t rent a car, since taxis are cheap and plentiful, and there are even water taxis at El Cortecito.
How to Get There
Do not use this company!!!! We booked a trip with George from Le Sivory in Punta Cana. He gave us his cell phone number Incase we needed to cancel or reschedule our excursion. We tried contacting him several times and could not get ahold of him. When we finally saw him at the resort he told us that we needed to do that with 24 hours notice to receive the partial refund. After telling George that we had tried contacting both him and the business he said ohh sorry it’s too late and you will not be receiving and refund. This was booked at Le Sivory in Punta Cana. Vacationers beware of both Nexus and Le Sivory, you will be highly disappointed in both companies!!
We had the best time, even though the weather was a little iffy (you can’t control that) all the staff.. especially Emilio made sure we had everything we needed! The food and drink were both great and we’d definitely return ☺️
We have read all the reviews -pros and cons and we have chosen to vacation at the unique resort. We are looking for relaxation, great food options, high end room with personal service. The beach /private room swim up pool, and spa amenities are just wat we need.
We have lived Sanadals Resort Nagril and hope PortBlue will surpass the competition for adult all inclusive vacations! We look forward to seeing you in February 23 2019.
A big warm thanks to all the family at PortBlue le Sivory. We had a very warm welcome on arrival and shown our guest room for our 12 night stay. The room was delightful with a bright and airy feeling and a wonderful view of the shoreline and palm teas. One of the family members would visit our room each day and decorate the bed with a different pattern on the throw adorned with some petals gathered from the lush garden.
Our morning walks before breakfast through the gardens were greeted by the gardeners and a pool attendant with “ Buenos Dias” and a happy smile to match the weather.
At breakfast we were greeted by the family members excitedly awaiting to show us what was on offer from the variety of pastries and savouries and on the grill station the friendly tone of Mr Nick your eggs are as you like and your wife’s hot chocolate croissants are ready”. Throughout our stay we were always greeted with exuberant family members eager to show what was on offer in the the 4 restaurants and the Head Chef was always on hand to add a touch of local cuisine.
Whether it was at the pool bar or at pre dinner drinks the boys would conjure up a cocktail to suit the occasion. After dinner whilst sat in the library listening to a soulful sax player or the soft ivory notes from the pianist they would offer a soothing night cap before retiring to bed.
The head of the family Mr Ignacio was ever present to ask if we were enjoying our stay and could anything be done to enhance our experience, a nice personal touch, as one would expect from the head of a pleasant family.
If you are looking for a relaxing holiday where you feel you have been personally invited to someone home and will be looked after by dedicated members wanting you to be part of the family life, then look no more than a stay at the PortBlue Le Sivory. We were looking for a quite, romantic holiday in a small boutique hotel next to to beach - Le Sivory ticked all the boxes and more
We stayed 3 nights at the Sivory and we loved our stay at this hotel. It's a boutique hotel, just the perfect size. We loved the food and the personalised service. We were well greeted from Sebastia upon our arrival and received great swervice from Luis and Juan at the bar and restaurants
We would go back in a heartbeat
