Excellence Punta Cana

Punta Cana, Dominican Republic

The hotel

Its sunny spirit and style may be inspired by its laid-back Caribbean setting (and what a setting — right along the powder of a secluded sandy shore), but Excellence Punta Cana is more than a beach bolthole, it’s a place of luxury, indulgence, and memory-inducing moments. An adults-only resort, it promises All Inclusive treats on a 5-star scale — with nine global gourmet dining venues; 12 bars; pool and beach waiter service; and 24-hour treats delivered right to your suite. And, when you need to work off all that feasting, you’ve got tennis courts, snorkelling, introductory scuba diving, cycling, Spanish dancing, and pools and Jacuzzis to pick from.
