A location as beautiful as Bávaro, in Dominican Republic’s Punta Cana, deserves equally beautiful hotels. Both of these Palladium Hotels offer direct access to picture-perfect beaches with a range of stunning features – so how do you choose between them?
TRS Turquesa Hotel
Dipping your toes in the crystal-clear azure waters of the sea fronting the luxury adult-only Turquesa, it’s hard to believe the airport is just 12 miles away – which means you can be in that water in less than an hour.
First there’s your accommodation: one of 372 suites, all light-filled luxurious spaces that echo their beautiful surroundings, with personalised mini-bars, butler service and 24-hour room service. The seven pools – of which two are exclusive to TRS Turquesa guests – and grounds are equally lovely, while the six bars and four à la carte restaurants should ensure something to suit whatever mood you’re in.
Have a French fling at La Bohème, sample Japanese/Peruvian fusion at Kusko, get the Ibiza beach club vibe at Helios or go global at Capricho.
Grand Palladium Palace Resort Spa & Casino
The focus is on family fun at this beachfront hotel. Beneath the shade of tiki-style umbrellas, parents can keep a watchful eye on their little ones as they enjoy the five pools or the aquatic park, or make use of three clubs for babies, kids and teenagers.
During the day, the beach is the base for a wide range of activities, while daily and nightly live shows make the resort a great one for groups, families and couples who enjoy lots of entertainment.
And if you’re on the Infinite Indulgence program, you’ll find even more, with access to the activities, dining options and facilities of the Grand Palladium Bávaro Suites Resort & Spa and Grand Palladium Punta Cana Resort & Spa.
The Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness centre features treatments, a gym and a hydrotherapy area with pool, hot tub, steam baths, wet and dry sauna and waterfalls. Guests who head to the adult-only Chic Cabaret & Restaurant will see more than 20 performers take part in a three-hour-long live show.
The Dine Around program gives guests at both hotels access to 14 restaurants and 19 bars available at any of the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts.
