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
We just returned from a week at Le Sivory and had the most relaxing peaceful time! We can not give this place a higher review to us it was more then a 5 star!
Our beachfront room #15 had the most amazing view! Loved getting up in the morning to the sound of the waves and having breakfast out by our little pool over looking the ocean!! The beach is amazing and so clean the waves are great fun for swimming!
The food was also great we loved all the restaurants! The drinks are not watered down and so well made thank you Luis & Santo and Victor for always making sure we had a drink in hand!
The Staff are so amazing made us feel welcome from the moment we got there thank you Maximo and Patricia and many others!
Over all this resort is so amazing and everyone treats you with respect! It is low key, quite, beautiful and just amazing!! We will be back

The service at this hotel #1, the food at this hotel #1, rooms are clean and spacious. Employees are very friendly. It's small and quaint. Literally a Rest and Relaxation location. Very mellow, very safe. Beach at your finger tips. Was fortunate enough to see an air violinist perform and it was awesome as well. 5 star in my book!
Attractive property with spacious rooms. Our accommodations provided a picture perfect view of the beach and ocean. Excellent dining and friendly personal service. Nice spa and adequate fitness facility. Fabulous pools and beach.
My daughter and I spent a week being pampered by the wonderful staff at Le Sivory. We wanted a week at the beach with good food. This quiet small adult resort met our every need. The all inclusive really meant all inclusive from room service, fine dining, full service bar and daily acitivities including yoga, and nightly music,
The hotel is very secluded, exactly what we wanted. Forgot to actually write this a year ago, so my memory is a little faded. View from the lobby is gorgeous, of course the typical welcome drink and towel were wonderful. The gorgeous beaches in Punta Cana are just a given and this one does not disappoint. No trouble ever finding chairs/beds at the pool or beach.
Our room was very modern and clean. One row back from the beach but could still see the ocean. Little trouble getting the fridge cold (and getting that problem understood), had an issue one night with the shower not draining and flooding the entire bathroom (which are huge) all the way out to the edge of the bed. This was again a little bit of a challenge to communicate. But once communication happened, they fixed it and cleaned the room at 8pm. They provided wine bottles daily and even a special dessert plate for our anniversary, along with a banner on the door, so nice.
The staff are amazing. Luckily, I found my list of their names. I don't know if all these spellings are correct but here it goes...a big thanks to them all; Hairo-front desk, Eddy-bellhop, Maria-housekeeping, Santo, Manuel, and Juan-you all rock at the bars, Jubi, Wanda, Ismael, Miciadles, Orquidea, Emilio, and Juan Philipe-at all the restaurants/snack bars/beach are AMAZING. The food was fantastic. We were lucky to have been there when their Michelin Star chef Rafael Sanchez was there. The tasting menus for dinner were all beyond delicious. I think we managed to have 4 different ones (we love good food), the regular menu also amazing, the Asian restaurant good as well. Breakfast was basic buffet, and lunch had some really good menu items.
We had a wonderful relaxing 8 days and would definitely go back. Lastly our driver back to the airport (booked through DAT) Raymond you're awesome!
