Overview

Luxury all-inclusive boutique resort within a resort perfectly positioned on Punta Cana’s sublime beach

The Lowdown

Comfy daybeds and ample hammocks dot the wide expanse of beach at this luxurious all-inclusive boutique resort within a resort. Whimsical chandeliers, contemporary art, and glittering bronze accents give the property a sleek, urban vibe more reminiscent of a private club than a large hotel. The tony atmosphere extends to the à la carte restaurants, which are linked by a funky lounge that serves handcrafted cocktails while you wait for your table. Decked out in soothing spa shades, rich mahogany furniture and granite countertops, the suites deliver views of the winding private Reserve pool, while generous bathrooms are kitted out with a vast hydromassage tub, a European spa shower with wall jets, and Thierry Mugler bath products. Upper-floor rooms include a hot tub on the balcony, while ground-level suites offer private access to the pool and a Balinese daybed on the terrace. When the weather is so brilliant, it’s hard not to feel a little guilty whiling the day away at the Southeast Asian-influenced Yhi spa, but you’ll lose any pangs of remorse as you pitter-patter along wooden bridges, hopping around the hydrotherapy circuits. Staying at this Spanish-owned resort means you’ll find delectable Iberian ham and manchego, and perfectly cooked Mediterranean cuisine from pasta to paella, at the property’s cutting-edge restaurants and buffet.

In the Area

Set along immaculate Bavaro Beach, there’s no need to pony up for snorkeling excursions — not when a natural coral reef brimming with colorful aquatic life runs along the turquoise coast, right in front of the hotel. Don’t miss dining at Michelin-starred Martin Berasategui’s molecular gastronomy restaurant, Passion at Paradisus Palma Real. Though not included in the all-inclusive package, this Spanish celebrity chef’s eight-course tasting menu (priced under $100) is a scrumptious bargain. Golf fans will also appreciate the unlimited golf and free greens fees at the Cocotal Golf & Country Club.

Mini vacation

Our first time at the Reserve and it was a pleasant surprise, we usually go down to the hard rock but this year it was booked. So a last minute decision was made to go the the Grand reserve. It was a fun experience and the food and stuff was top notch. Upon arriving we received a alcohol free mojito that was excellent. Our conceive took us to our room and explained everything about the room and the amenities that came along with it. My wife and I have already plan to return next year with out our teenage son.

Excellent service

Beautiful main space, good food, and the beach side service was excellent. In particular, Jendry De Luna was a fabulous, attentive, helpful server. It makes a huge difference when have people genuinely enjoy their job and are sociable. Great job!

Great Hotel in general

Amazing place overall for adults and kids! The place is one of the most beautiful places we have been to and everyone loved it. I'm sure in peak season is a lot more expensive but we took it on lower season and it was great!
