Acclaim like a Condé Nast Traveler World Savers Award has helped to make The Westin Puntacana Resort & Club a leading luxury community in the Dominican Republic, as well as in the Caribbean at large. A World Travel Awards nomination, meanwhile, is one of several features that sets this esteemed resort apart. Upon the already-brilliant beachfront location and resort-wide Dominican dining offered by the larger property, this stay heaps its own comforts, just as you might expect.
Westin is, after all, the company that trademarked the Heavenly Bed and the Heavenly Bath, both of which appear in your room. But here, the magic really happens outside your abode – say, when your feet hit the property’s sandy shores. In addition to having access to 45 holes of golf and North America’s only Six Senses Spa, you can easily swing by the hotel’s own Brassa Grill & Bar for seafood and breathtaking sea views.
The Puntacana Resort & Club guest rooms are just what you’d expect from a Westin hotel, featuring Heavenly Beds®, marble Heavenly Baths® and other heavenly details, like balconies and ocean views. Showcasing sleek style, plush furnishings and neutral palettes with pops of tropical color, these accommodations are your own sugar-sweet slice of paradise (the Caribbean views from your balcony don’t hurt either).Traditional rooms range from 409 to 463 square feet and hold either one king or two queen beds, or you can make the most of your Caribbean location and opt for a roomier Premium Ocean View room, with a double sink in its bathroom and separate walk-in closets. Both feature ocean views.
With two restaurants and three bars, the hotel promises you’ll never have to venture far to satisfy your cravings. Anani serves contemporary breakfast, lunch and dinner, Brassa Grill & Bar offers casual dishes beachside, and chic Don Queco Cigar & Rum Bar gives you just what it says, making it the first in Punta Cana with this specialty. The Kite Bar and Lobby Bar are also on hand to hydrate you with fine spirits and fruity cocktails.Also available on the property are AAA Three and Four Diamond Award-winning restaurants La Yola and Bamboo, serving fresh meals of locally sourced ingredients in elegant settings.
The first spa of its kind in the Dominican Republic, only the second in the Caribbean with a AAA Five Diamond Award, a Leading Spa, according to The Leading Hotels of the World, and North America’s only outpost of the Six Senses worldwide chain, Six Senses Spa at PUNTACANA Resort & Club melds seamlessly with the relaxing atmosphere of the larger tropical property. Its Asian-inspired interior reflects the spa’s holistic focus, which includes acupressure, shiatsu, yoga and meditation.From the Bamboo Massage and CH Oxygen Facial to the Asia Wellness and Sensory Spa Journey, the menu integrates scientific and traditional therapeutic elements. And its wellness activities – including yoga and Aerial Fitness® – let you take your longer-term wellness into your own hands.
With tons of restaurants, shops, fairways designed by professional golfers and outdoor-adventure options, Punta Cana is rich in Dominican tradition, culture and leisure. Zip-lining, dancing to Dominican music, exploring the Indigenous Eyes Ecological Park or browsing local shops and boutiques are just a few popular pastimes among the vacationing crowd. The beaches also help make this tropical getaway a popular one, with white sands and brilliant waters – just what you need for lounging around and soaking up the sun.
How to Get There
This is resort is beautiful. Rooms are excellent and well kept. Service overall was very good and we enjoyed the food at the restaurants. Much better than the food at an all inclusive we tried after our stay ended here. Pool was quiet and not crowded we felt like we had the resort to ourselves. Used the shuttle to the eco park(must do) and to the village. We will stay here again in the future thanks Westin.
I recently took my first trip to the Dominican Republic this past week for my birthday. Our stay at the Westin Punta Cana was absolutely amazing. The resort was a getaway to paradise. Every room has an ocean view, the resort is clean, and the staff was very attentive. What took this stay over the top for us was the service. Wilmin and Teresa at the front desk were very helpful and accommodating. Francesca and Scarlett at the concierge desk were AMAZING. They explained how to get to the city, set up all inclusive trips to the Cocoa Bongo and Imagine nightclubs and sent up a birthday cake for me. Last but not least Yonathan at the restaurant was very friendly and pleasant to talk to. All in all this team is awesome and made our stay a once in a lifetime experience.
This is my 3rd visit to this hotel within 6 months. My first stay was in Feb for 3 days. 2nd was in end of Apirl, and now begining of June.
No seaweed on the beach in the winter n spring season, but this time there was so much seaweed that turn the beach water brown. Not the hotel fault, it is just mother nature. So I don't recommend u come beginning of may thru at least mid June unless you don't mind the seaweed looks n smell. Otherwise it is Perfect hotel with white sand and crystal clear beach. Food is great and restaurant is very inexpensive ($20 average entree). There are other restaurant on the resort that the free shuttle will take you that are more expensive if like. But i love the Punta Cuna villages restaurants n shops ( so many varieties like 12 restaurants to pick from and there is a supermarket,bask in robbins, pharmacy n banks). There is also a sandbar about 200 yards from shore. U can swim or walk there(mostly 5 ft deep but some part are 7 feet deep till you reach the sandbar). No nightlife like clubs near by. It is very romantic and quiet.
They are very strict with check in policy with your guests. Unlike other Marriott brands hotel in the u.s. or santo Domingo, whoever you check in at the time of check in is it, you can change your guests on the same RSVP. Because i have 3 girlfriends. 1st girl for my first 3 days, 2nd girl for days 3 thru 6. And 3rd girl days 6 thru 9 lol. They was able to make a special exception for me tho. Very nice staff.
