Want Peace & Tranquility? Look No Further-Punta Cana's Tortuga Bay!
April 10, 2016
Nature takes center-stage at this boutique-sized enclave, part of the PUNTA CANA Resort & Club development. Five miles of pristine private beachfront the property, which is nestled in a 1,500-acre ecological reserve. The leafy setting inspired fashion designer (and Dominican Republic native) Oscar de la Renta, who created the plantation-style suite interiors here. All the rooms have balconies and feature such touches as Frette linens and Oscar de la Renta amenities.
Beautiful as these serene spaces are, guests are tempted by a myriad of activities, including golf on two 18-hole courses, and tennis and water sports like snorkeling and kayaking. At the end of an active day, the Six Senses Spa (the only one in North America) beckons; many of the treatments are all-natural, making it a great fit for this special place.
Dining: Offering modern cuisine with Mediterranean influences, the AAA Four Diamond award-winning Bamboo Restaurant features graceful interiors by Oscar de la Renta.
Golf: Test your skills on 45 holes of championship golf, including La Cana Golf Club's courses, designed by P.B. Dye, and Tom Fazio's Corales.
Spa: Punta Cana Resort's 1,500-acre nature park and reserve, Ojos Indígenas, boasts an impressive network of trails leading to twelve freshwater lagoons.
